Choice overload is real and can add to your stress especially in our current situation where there’s so much to think about. With the slew of restaurants and home businesses offering a variety of food items, just choosing one can already be time-consuming and there’s still the matter of whether your order will be accepted, delivered when you need it, and as good as you expect it to be.
The Richmonde Hotels, namely Eastwood Richmonde Hotel, Richmonde Hotel Ortigas, and Richmonde Hotel Iloilo, have created takeaway collections of satisfying familiar fare and gourmet creations, for easy options to make ordering a cinch. Here are just some of the reasons to order your next takeaway from Richmonde:
- You get hotel-quality food minus the exorbitant price. Richmonde always aims to provide good value for money. So, for the food offerings in all three properties, expect high-grade ingredients and tasty flavors at reasonable rates. Since splurging is not an option these days, Richmonde provides menu options that are still affordable so you can treat yourself to enjoyable and indulgent meals without spending a lot.
- All kitchen and food & beverage teams of the Richmonde Hotels strictly observe stringent hygiene protocols in food handling and preparation. You order in to keep safe but are you confident that the food you’re ordering is safe as well? The kitchens of Richmonde Hotels have passed the quality inspection of the Department of Tourism and have been duly certified to operate. Hotel management enforces strict safety and sanitation standards to ensure the hygienic preparation and packaging of food. Proper PPEs are supplied to all staff who follow all established COVID-19 prevention guidelines to a T.
- You get to select from a menu of familiar comfort food favorites. Ordering becomes so much easier when you know what you’re getting. Richmonde Hotels curated some of the best sellers of all their menus to create the ultimate takeaway list to satisfy any craving. Offering dishes from breakfast items, gourmet meals and bento boxes, to snack bites and sweet desserts, Richmonde is your very own one-stop shop for food to-go. What’s more, all three hotels offer your favorite signature items like the Richmonde Burger made with 100% Angus beef and freshly baked pretzel bun, the soft and cheesy Richmonde Ensaymada, and the super moist Richmonde Chocolate Cake.
- You can be assured of a warm meal anywhere you may be. Because you don’t always consume your takeaway at home or in places where there is a stove or oven, Richmonde has meals packed in self-heating Hotboxes so you can conveniently warm up your food anytime and anywhere with just a pull of a string.
- You can choose menu items with just the right serving size you need. There are combo meals if you have a big appetite, family sizes and food platters that are great for sharing, and bento boxes for solo eating that’s still quite filling. Even party-like feasts perfect for home celebrations are available with servings good for up to 4 to 6 persons.
- Customization is possible for bulk orders. These days, bulk ordering of packed meals for delivery is the new catering. For these requirements, the Richmonde can accommodate requests for custom-made meals for a minimum order requirement. Plus, you can even add your own label, note or branding to the Richmomde Black Box packaging.
- Advance ordering means you get your order on time. A specified lead time is required for certain menu items to ensure that your order gets to you exactly at the time you want. And because you communicate with the hotel directly, you can be assured that there is no chance of your order getting cancelled once it is confirmed.
- Delivery is free within neighboring areas. Richmonde offers complimentary delivery service of takeaway orders to addresses within Eastwood City and within the areas of San Miguel Avenue, Pearl Drive, Lourdes St., and Escriva Drive, if ordering from Eastwood Richmonde and Richmonde Ortigas, respectively.
- Delivery fees help displaced hotel workers. As a way of helping displaced hotel associates, Eastwood Richmonde and Richmonde Ortigas gives those willing to work part-time the opportunity to earn some money by being part of the hotels’ pool of delivery riders. Delivery charges are given to them in full.
- Contactless transactions are available. Convenient online payment options available. Minimize physical contact during ordering and pickup. Payments for your takeaway orders can be settled via an online payment gateway for credit card transactions, or online bank transfers, whichever is more convenient for you. Richmonde even accepts LYKA gems now as payment. If you opt to pickup your takeaway from the hotel, there’s no need to park and get out of your car because you can have your order conveniently handed over to you at the hotel driveaway.
Staying home and staying safe doesn’t mean depriving yourself of the delectable dishes you’ve come to love and enjoy at Richmonde.
According to Richmonde Hotel Iloilo Sous Chef Jeffrey Ticao, “With the special takeaway menu we created, our loyal patrons here in Iloilo can continue to enjoy their usual favorites in their residences or offices.”
Richmonde Hotel Ortigas’ Food & Beverage Manager Ria Rosal added, “In putting together our menu, we listen to what our patrons want and take this into consideration.” For those clients with specific tastes or even dietary restrictions, Eastwood Richmonde Hotel Executive Chef Victor Barangan confidently reveals, “As much as we can, we try to apply the usual flexibility we give our dine-in guests to our takeaway customers. Our main goal is and will always be the satisfaction of our guests.”
