It’s that time of the year again where the air is a bit cooler, more traffic ensues, and people are generally more generous than other times of the year. Family seems to be kinder, friends a little more accommodating, and strangers are friendlier. You can’t mistake it with any other holiday as the malls, radio stations are constantly playing familiar tunes such as All I want for Christmas, This Christmas, and Santa Claus is coming to town.
Yes, it’s Christmas.
Friends and Families gather, office mates celebrate camaraderie, and everyone is in a rush to buy their presents, plan their reunions, and enjoy the season of giving.
For us at Fat Girls Day Out, Christmas means ham, chocolate, and countless get togethers that threaten to expand our waistlines.
Old Swiss Inn has some exciting Holiday Packages that is sure to make any get together a memorable one.
Slow Roasted Angus Beef Belly
For over 70 years, Old Swiss Inn is has been a forefront when it comes to European Dining. Originally known for their fresh Corned Beef. We urge you to try their Angus Beef Belly, this 3kg slab is slow cooked for over 6 hours rendering the fat so tender that it melts in your mouth.
The meat is seasoned beautifully that each bite gives delight. This is good for 10-12 people.
Price: 5,500 PHP
Roast US Butterball Turkey
This bird is usually served for Thanksgiving but in the US it also serves as their special celebratory dish just like ham to us. This bird has been braised, roasted and prepared overnight to satisfy your turkey desires.
Tender turkey meat with all the trimmings of stuffing, sweet potato mash, cranberry jelly and giblet gravy. This is good for 12-15 people.
Price: 6,500 PHP
Fresh Corned Beef
Corned beef to me used to mean Pure foods, Delimundo, or Swift. Old Swiss Inn redefined what it meant to me. Rather than using preservatives and serve it in a can, you can have a slab of tender and meaty beef, it has more flavors and will leave you questioning why you’ve been eating canned the whole time.
This meaty corned beef is a flagship dish for Old Swiss Inn, countless families would come over and buy fresh slabs of this tender and flavorful dish.
Price: 3,600 PHP
Glazed Baked Ham
Noche Buena wouldn’t be complete without a glazed baked ham. This 1.6 kg is marinated, baked then glazed with Old Swiss Inn’s sauce. It’s salty, sweet and perfect with rice or pandesal.
This leg of ham is good for 8-10 pax.
Price: 1,850 PHP
Toblerone Crinkles and Toblerone Treasures
For those of you who absolutely love Toblerone, Old Swiss combines this staple chocolate bar into their crinkles and russian tea cakes. At the center of each of these cookies is a whole triangle of Toblerone.
Dark chocolate envelopes a whole triangle of toblerone, praline cream with nuts at the center make a very interesting cookie.
Price der dozen: Toblerone Crinkles (425 PHP), Toblerone Treasures (525 PHP)
Bonus Tip: They have an ongoing promo of free Toblerone Crinkles with a min.spend of 3,000 PHP.
Why it needs to be part of your next Holiday Celebration
Whenever we have a celebration, the first thing my family thinks of is the food. Food is always king in these sort of celebrations and sometimes we don’t exactly have the time to prepare. With Old Swiss Inn, you’re guaranteed to have excellent food selection for all your holiday affairs.
