Lugang Cafe, an eatery known for offering Taiwanese and Cantonese specialties, has just announced that come May, diners at their restaurants can choose an AYCE (all-you-care-to-eat) option for PHP588 (US$11.37) per person. Kids not taller than 120 cm only have to pay PHP299 (US$5.78) each.
The promo title says it all — “feast all you can.”
In a Facebook post published on the restaurant’s official account today, Lugang announced that from May 2 to 31, customers can have unlimited servings of dim sum, appetizers, soup, and rice. On top of that, they will also get an order of one of their house specialties, such as Three-Cup Chicken, a classic Taiwanese dish of chicken pieces braised in rice wine, soy sauce, sesame oil, basil, and ginger.
The announcement also said that customers who want to add an order of the cafe’s specialty drinks can do so for an additional PHP80 (US$1.54).
OK, now’s the part where we go over the fine print.
First off, a 10 percent service charge will be added per person.
Also, only the following branches will have this promo: SM North EDSA in Quezon City, SM Aura in Taguig, SM Megamall in Mandaluyong, Robinsons Place Manila in Ermita, O Square in San Juan, and Glorietta 2 in Makati. The promo is on every day except Sunday.
Lugang Cafe is best known for its xiao long bao, dumplings covered in thin, delicate wrappers. Other dishes that have earned rave reviews from diners include their roast duck, wonton soup, and that Three-Cup Chicken house specialty.
