Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion at home or simply want to indulge in gourmet food, these hotels provide delicious food to go.
It’s our third round at quarantine and by no means does it get any easier. Thus, all we can do for now is a bit of cheering up, especially during these trying times. And what better way than with food?
Food always brings comfort. Whether we have upcoming celebrations or simply want to treat our families, good food is always integral to happy gatherings. But since we cannot go out, our best choice is by having food from our favorite restaurants sent to us. Or better yet, we can also up the ante and indulge in gourmet food, too.
Here’s a list of gourmet hotel food to go and menu item recommendations that will surely satisfy the family’s cravings, and more importantly, fit all kinds of budgets as well:
Who can say no to freshly baked delights delivered straight to your doorstep? Bake House at Shangri-La The Fort carries a wide selection of sweet and savory items that are sure to delight customers. Each product is freshly made with a conscious heart—grounded on the shop’s laudable commitment to using all-natural and trans-fat-free ingredients.
