Festive Delights at CHIJMES
You’ve probably been in this situation before – you bump into a friend you haven’t met in ages, and after some small talk, you say “eh let’s meet up soon with the rest of the gang”. Then months go by and… nothing happens.
We all know it’s tough to plan an outing, especially when you have to balance hunting for a good location with your picky friends’ tastebuds. Luckily, this Christmas there will be dining promos at CHIJMES, right in the middle of the CBD, so none of your friends can complain about the location.
Some of the restaurants open till late, so you can have a proper meet-up without being interrupted – such as when malls close. Here are 5 dining promos at CHIJMES to take advantage of this Christmas:
1. El Mero Mero – Complimentary bottle of sparkling wine with min spend of $180++
