I kept marvelling at all the beautiful chandeliers artfully placed in strategic places of the hotel. They’re not your usual old-fashioned chandeliers, which is why I was so fascinated. They are works of art, each with a story to tell.



I was only able to dine at Spectrum Fairmont Makati once, for lunch. It was bright & cheerful, but the night brings with it a cozy glow. And although each has its own merits, I think I’m liking night time at Spectrum better. <3



The moment we stepped inside, this was what greeted us. Smiling, happy people! <3 And you already know what this does to me right? I’ve fallen in love with Spectrum right off the bat! <3



Along with happy smiles were these beautiful, colourful veggies that screamed Italy. Italian cuisine is always bursting with flavours & colors. I was in a good mood already & I haven’t even started!

Begin your meal with the vibrant tastes of antipasti, artisanal deli fare and rustic homemade breads. Savor classic Italian entrées such as slow-roasted porchetta and hearty osso bucco, while enjoying authentic specialties such as bruschetta, risotto, ravioli, pasta and pizza made fresh at live culinary theaters.


Italy is known for its breads. Different kinds of glorious breads, And Spectrum Fairmont Makati doesn’t disappoint with its wide & varied array.



Aside from its Italian fare, Spectrum Fairmont Makati also has other international & popular dishes for the pickiest of eaters. There’s always something for everyone.




Suckling pig, anyone? I was in foodie heaven! <3



A carnivore’s delight awaits you.






Roast Beef..



and Herb Roasted Lamb. Name it, Spectrum Fairmont Makati buffet has it.




Lamb Lasagna. I was happy that it wasn’t too overpowering and I was able to enjoy the meat.



Polenta. Polenta. And more Polenta! ;) Baked, grilled, wet, steamed corn, and Baked Potato.

Polenta (Polente or Poleinte in France) is cornmeal boiled into a porridge, and eaten directly or baked, fried or grilled. The term is of Italian origin, derived from the Latin for hulled and crushed grain (especially barley-meal). It comes from the same base as “pollen”. 


Spectrum Fairmont Makati has a Make-Your-Own-Pizza with a million & one toppings imaginable!



Toppings, toppings, and more toppings! :)







But more than anything, I celebrated the cheese offerings & had a cheese party. The cured meat assortment is not to be scoffed at. I was truly impressed with the many choices. The next time I set foot in Spectrum Fairmont Makati, I’ll make sure to just have the cured meats & cheese. With wine. Be still my heart! <3



A mouthwatering selection of Italian dessert indulgences made by the hotel’s pastry chefs completes this Italia gastronomic love affair. From the traditional tiramisu to modern dessert pizzas, Spectrum offers a kind of dolci to satisfy every sweet tooth.






A unique feature in Spectrum Fairmont Makati is it’s Honey Bee Production. Honey is freshly made & generously dolloped in most of the desserts.




Honey Chocolate Truffle. Love at first sight. <3 Just looking at it gives you butterflies in the pit of your stomach.



And Spectrum Fairmont Makati is so thoughtful to include SUGAR-FREE chocolate barks for sugar-intolerant people like me to enjoy. Thank you Spectrum for your thoughtfulness! <3



Chocolate Cannoli. One does not eat at an Italian restaurant & pass up the Cannoli & Tiramisu.


Cannoli are Italian pastry desserts. The singular is cannolo, meaning “little tube”. Cannoli originated in Sicily and are a staple of Sicilian cuisine. Cannoli consist of tube-shaped shells of fried pastry dough, filled with a sweet, creamy filling usually containing ricotta.


As you can see, I was able to enjoy the guiltless sugar-free chocolate barks with nuts.



From start to finish, we got happy smiles!



And lemme tell you, their smiles were SO infectious that we were also beaming the whole time. Good food, good service, good company. What better way to cap off an evening of drinking & eating!
