The grand dame of Makati hotels extends its festivity with its to-go feasts.

Makati City, aside from being epicenter of commerce in the Philippines, is also home to food hotspots, arts and leisure spaces, and designer boutiques, all contributing to making Makati the iconic city that it is. Among the shining jewels of its cityscape is The Peninsula Manila, a prime location for luxury, style, and social events.

Since it opened its doors on Sept. 14, 1976, The Peninsula Manila has been the finest hotel in the Makati Central Business District, if not in all Metro Manila. To celebrate its anniversary this year, the “grand dame of Makati hotels” is offering a slew of “Our Birthday-Your Birthday,” offering world-class dishes and cocktails available for takeout and delivery at The Peninsula Boutique until Sept. 30.

“We have missed having our guests these past few months,” says The Peninsula Manila general manager Masahisa Oba. “As we celebrate our 44th anniversary this month, we would like to express our sincerest gratitude by taking them traipsing down memory lane with our nostalgia-laden signature Peninsula dishes that our talented food and beverage team has created just for them.” 


To toast its 44th anniversary, the hotel’s executive sous chef Xavier Castello is offering many of the hotel’s most beloved culinary creations (and libations) at prices evocative of that day four decades ago when the hotel pages welcomed their first guests through The Lobby’s doors. 

The Peninsula Boutique’s assorted French pastries, 70 percent dark chocolate cigar, coffee eclair, banana bread, sourdough ciabatta loaf, etc. are priced at only P197.60.

Also on the menu are The Lobby favorites like pancit luglug and grilled Schüblig sausage and spices classics nasi goreng and phad thai for P444. 

Old Manila’s famed Angus beef ribeye steak and beef or salmon Wellington are a steal at P1,976.


The Peninsula Manila sure knows how to throw a party, even outside its lush halls. And to keep everyone in a gleeful spirit, beverage manager Rico Deang is bringing special bottles to match any occasion, anytime and anywhere. Guests can choose from bottled batched aperol spritz to margarita and negroni that can be enjoyed for P 1,976.

Either for takeout or delivery, The Peninsula Boutique’s specially curated 44th anniversary “Our Birthday-Your Birthday” selection will allow members of its extended family to experience some “Peninsula Love” as they indulge in the comforts of their home.

Complimentary delivery within Makati City will be extended to guests making a minimum single-receipt purchase of P2,000.
