|Halo-halo and schueblig for only P35 as The Pen celebrates 35th year|
MANILA, Philippines - The Lobby offers the iconic Halo-halo Harana and grilled schueblig at P35 each — one peso each for every year The Peninsula Manila has been in operation — in celebration of its 35th anniversary on Sept. 14.
The Sept. 14 Lobby promotion will be strictly on a no-reservations, first come/first serve basis. Added conditions to the promotion: 10-percent service charge and applicable government taxes will be added to the final bill; beverages and other menu items aside from Halo-halo Harana and grilled schueblig will be at regular prices; transactions will not accept marketing tie-up discounts; there will be no takeout; one or both of the two items must be ordered and consumed at The Lobby, and orders will not be shared. This is a half-day promotion only — from 12 noon to 12 midnight. (Unquote)
And since malapit lang ang Peninsula sa office, of course I gave this a shot. :) With me is my pigging out partner slash officemate buddy, Len.
So, right after office hours, me and Len went straight to The Peninsula and as Tim Yap stated on his tweet, mahaba nga daw ang line so I did expect it na, to my surprise hindi naman ganon ka extreme oh well I guess medyo maaga din kami dumating since nung nakapila na kami ang dami na ding nagdatingan pa. So most likely we waited around 30 minutes to got in. But I don't mind since may kasama naman ako hindi ko napansin kung matagal pa ba ko pumila dahil chikahan naman kami ni Len while on queue. So I'll share to you what happens next thru pictures na lang..

I really don't have a single clue how much is the regular price of this but I'm sure it is more than Php 35 :)
In all fairness, masarap talaga sya..
