Try Every Restaurant in New World, Pan-Pacific, Diamond Hotels (2 of 10) (see also TERNWPPD)
Eating my way through the restaurants in the 5-star hotels within walking distance of my apartment in Manila: New World (3), Pan-Pacific (5), Diamond (2). In contrast to the crappy food in the neighborhood, hotels ought to do better, at least in terms of quality.
Following Day 2 of OODL, the key facilitators from IDLO, University of Sydney, and WHO convened for a working dinner in preparation of Day 3.
They elected to stay in the hotel and eat at the buffet.
The food sucked. The duck, for example, was dry, like jerky. The noodles tasted a bit off. Crappy across the board.
