by Marla Miniano-Umali

Christmas is often about making everyone around you happy, and nothing makes people happier as much as being in a room full of glorious food.

Whether you’re planning a holiday get-together with the friends who had your back all year or treating your family to the feast they deserve, splurging on a buffet is a rightful reward you should never hesitate to give yourself and your loved ones. At Flavors Restaurant in Holiday Inn & Suites Makati, you can take your pick from a bevy of delicious deals that are all 100% worth it—and get them at an exclusive, unbeatable price right here on Deal Grocer. You’re welcome.


Bond with your best buds over a Lunch or Dinner Buffet for 4

By now, you’ve grown up enough to know that you and your friends’ tastes will never be exactly alike—and that’s precisely what makes your relationship interesting. It might seem impossible to please everyone when it comes to deciding where to eat, but at Flavors, all of you can have your cake and eat it too…literally, because their dessert section is TDF. Savor the bestselling Ube Cheesecake and the crowd-fave Red Velvet Cake, but not before you all satisfy your individual cravings at the Salad Bar, Sushi and Sashimi Station, Asian Noodle Station, and more. Don’t forget to pile some tasty grilled pork, fish, and chicken skewers onto your plate, and make sure to take advantage of your complimentary round of iced tea or soda.

Prefer to fly solo? Hey, we won’t judge! Get 34% OFF this Lunch or Dinner Buffet for 1!


Treat your folks to a Weekend Dinner Buffet for 4

If you were extremely stressed this year, your parents were probably even more so. Give them a much-needed break with a sumptuous dinner buffet, and catch up on each other’s lives while you’re at it. Mom will absolutely love Flavors’ take on Adobo, but go ahead and reassure her that hers still holds the top spot in your heart. Meanwhile, give Dad a holiday free pass and let him indulge in several bites of the sinful Lechon Kawali, tender yet crispy pork belly deep-fried to perfection. Plus, with Flavors’ themed buffet nights, you can have your fill of prawns, mussels, and oysters on Seafood Night Fridays, and sink your teeth into juicy cuts of USDA ribeye steak on Steak Night Saturdays.

Want to enjoy this deal on your own instead? Totally okay. Get 39% OFF this Weekend Dinner Buffet for 1.


Give the kids a taste of the good life with a Sunday Brunch Buffet for 4

Not a lot of little ones are adventurous with their food (hotdogs and chicken nuggets for days!), but with the appetizing Sunday brunch spread at Flavors, you won’t have trouble convincing them to try something new. Sweet breakfast favorites such as pancakes, waffles, and French toast are super kid-friendly, and you can even introduce them to Filipino delicacies like taho and champorado to help them connect to their roots. There’s even a children’s buffet station especially set up for young diners! You can choose from a wide selection of meat, seafood, and vegetable dishes if you’re not in the mood for breakfast food, and for a festive ending, share a glass of halo-halo or the tallest twirls of soft-serve ice cream. Do you miss Hotel InterContinental Manila’s cult-favorite crepe samurai? One bite of Holiday Inn & Suites Makati’s Mango Crepe Samurai will take you back, as it follows the same recipe!

Feast on an impressive spread of Asian and international dishes for Christmas Day Dinner or New Year’s Day, or enjoy a heartwarming Christmas Day Brunch featuring Christmas Ham, Sirloin Steak, Filipino Christmas Desserts, and Free-Flowing Sparkling Wine. Cheers!

Don’t miss out on the Dessert Station, where you can feel like a kid again as you indulge in Cake Pops, Snowman Red Velvet Cake, and Gingerbread Fruit Cake. Make sure you drop by GrInn’s Gingerbread House at the ground floor lobby too, so you can snap up a Christmas treat (or two).
