MANILA, Philippines — At the height of the enhanced community quarantine, your social media feed was most likely flooded with one food trend to the next—Dalgona coffee, sushi bake, banana bread, among others. This just shows how Filipinos truly love dining even with restrictions.
But even as you joined the bandwagon—whipping up specialty drinks or trying your hand at baking—there still remains a craving for your favorite international cuisine when you go on food trips abroad.
After months of craving, dining outlets are once again allowed to operate by strictly following safety and health protocols.
Find out where you can satisfy your international food cravings without having to leave the metro.

Solaire is safe for you
From Fresh International Buffet to Finestra Italian Steakhouse and all of the hotel’s other dining outlets, Solaire has thoughtfully made adjustments in the way people dine without compromising their experience.
To minimize contact points, menus can be accessed via QR code and cashless payment options are available. When dining, customers are provided face mask holders for one-time use.
Solaire sanitizes every inch of its international dining outlets and their respective kitchens to the highest standards.
To clean tables, chairs, countertops, and high-touch surfaces, the hotel uses Hygiene Pro, an antibacterial nano coating that provides continuous protection against microorganisms for seven days. It is approved by both the US and Philippine Food and Drug Administration, and is augmented by Suma J512 via electrostatic sprayer.
Each and every utensil, glassware, chinaware, and other pieces of tableware are sanitized using dishwashing machines that apply heat and chemicals that kill microorganisms.
And while al fresco dining is becoming popular these days because of its ventilation, Solaire has found a way to give the same level—if not better—of safety. It utilizes UVC in its air conditioning filtration system to ensure that the air is as clean as a world-class medical facility.
As an added precaution, kitchen and dining areas are exposed to UVC light after operations. Lastly, hygiene swabbing is done regularly to ensure cleaning and sanitizing are done properly.
Adjusting to the quarantine measures and safety protocols brought about by the pandemic doesn’t have to ruin experiences that you used to love. Enjoy your favorite international dishes without worry and with ease—safely. Just book your restaurant of choice and dine at Solaire.
