  • I’M Hotel’s The Common Good Food Playground Introduces New Set Lunch Menu
  • Let’s admit it. When staying at a hotel, not everyone can wake up as early as 6 o’clock in the morning just to have a free buffet breakfast. 

    Luckily, non-morning people can now indulge in a tummy-filling meal anytime because I’M Hotel’s in-house buffet restaurant, The Common Good, now offers a new Set Lunch Menu.

    The Common Good Food Playground serves the best of international cuisines with nine different food concepts available for their adventurous guests. As they aim to cater to more guests who are looking for a place to dine for lunch, they created a unique set of lunch menu that no other buffet restaurants in the metro offers.

    Starting July 19, hotel guests and employees can enjoy 11 diverse dishes inspired by Japanese/Korean TreatsWestern Delights, and Filipino/Asian Favourites from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. 

    When asked what made them create the set menu, Chef Gary explains that their usual open hours were only during breakfast and dinner buffet. In order to fill the time they have in the middle of the day, they thought of creating the lunch menu to accommodate diners within the Poblacion area, especially those working. 

    Each dish in the menu is comfort food favorites from Asia and Western countries, combined to give us a lunch menu we deserve to feast on.

    “(The set menu) is versatile, it doesn’t stick to the usual buffet offerings we have here,” Chef Gary said.

    Those who love Italian cuisine will surely enjoy their Tomato Basil Pasta with Rosemary Grilled Chicken (Php 400), a simple spaghetti dish garnished with basil and served with a juicy chicken breast marinated in white wine, minced garlic, and bay leaf.

    Following the Italian way of preparing pasta, they make sure that they are fresh despite being ready instantly after you order.  

    For Japanese/Korean dishes, you may choose between the Cheese Katsu with Rice (Php 340) and the Oyakodon (Php 290).

    The Cheese Katsu with Rice is a Japanese-style pork katsu filled with oozing cheese. It was originally made as a Hainanese-style porkchop, but they recreated the recipe with the use of cheese.

    Meanwhile, the chef’s favorite, Oyakodon, is a popular comfort food made with Japanese rice, chunks of chicken, and egg. To add flavor, it is smothered with a generous amount of sauce made with sake, mirin, and Kikkoman soy sauce.

    Paying homage to the Filipino cuisine is their own version of everyone’s favorite Chicken Inasal with Rice (Php 330). This flame-grilled chicken is seasoned with the usual Filipino marinate. Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a cup of white rice and a soy sauce dip on the side!

    The good thing about this lunch set is that diners can choose to upgrade their meals. For Php 70, you can get an unlimited soup of the day or an unlimited soup and a Trio of Desserts for Php 180.

    It also comes with a free coffee or iced tea as refreshments. Other chef-recommended dishes you may want to try are Japchae (Php 400), Beef with Kimchi Fried Rice (Php 320), and Mango Tandoori Pizza (Php 310).

    The Common Good is located at the 4th level, I’M Hotel, 7862 Makati Avenue corner Kalayaan Avenue, Makati City. For reservations, you may call The Common Good at 02-755-7888 or email them at reservations@imhotel.com. For other promotions, check their Facebook and Instagram pages.
