No Ghost Month for the Swiss! Cheese Buffet Starts ​August 19

Marco Polo Hotel in Ortigas (across Metro Walk) goes all out in supporting the 725th National Swiss Day.

Of course they would. Their General Manager, Frank Reichenbach, is proudly Swiss.

“I am a Swiss national. I was raised and grew up in Switzerland. It is a country that is known with its stunning mountains and majestic views. Through its towns lie and live the culture of Switzerland, something that it simple, but rich. For us to celebrate this special day for Switzerland, we are very happy to share the culture that I have always loved,” says Frank Reichenbach said in a press statement.

With the Embassy of Switzerland’s Deputy Head of Mission, Raoul Imbach, they launched last week their Swiss food festival, simply titled “All Things Swiss”, which will run from August 19 to September 4. The hotel is even bringing in Swiss chef Rolf Jaeggi from Marco Polo Hong Kong.

A four-course Swiss dinner will be available at Cucina (P2,888.00) aside from the Swiss additions to the daily buffet (Monday to Thursday, at Php 1,500 for lunch buffet and Php 1,800 for dinner buffet; and from Friday to Sunday, at Php 2,300 for lunch buffet and Php 2,650 for dinner buffet.)

But I think I will go instead for the CHEESE BUFFET that will be available every night for the whole duration of All Things Swiss (P1,900.00)!!

For reservations, call (632) 720 7777.
