Apericena at Seda BGC

Happy hour is something we are all very familiar with, but have you heard of Apericena?  It basically means “apertivo + dinner” and has become quite the trend in Italy — you buy yourself a drink, and get to enjoy a buffet of appetizers for FREE!

IMG_0242It is such a good deal!  For as little as P120 for a San Mig Light (or P200-300+ for cocktails and mocktails), you get to enjoy a delicious spread for free.  They vary the dishes included in the selection, but here’s what we enjoyed when we were there:

According to Seda’s Group General Manager, Andrea Mastellone, Seda BGC is the very first hotel in Manila to offer Apericena.  All I can say is the food was delicious, and I had such a great time!  Here are more snaps of our fun night at Straight Up Bar, courtesy of Game Changer.
