A quick click on the hashtag #DITSphilippines would lead one to photos showing seated diners with gasp-inducing, panoramic images of the sky and the Manila Bay behind them. The hashtag stands for Dinner in the Sky Philppines, a pop-up fine dining experience from Belgium that has "criss-crossed" its way to Manila, right next to Solaire in Pasay City. And everyone is raring to savor this once-in-a-lifetime resto-ride.
Dinner in the Sky came about in 2006 in Brussells, when food sector-centric communications agency Hakuna Matata and amusement park supplier The Fun Group birthed the idea. It became a hit among foodies and adventure seekers alike so much so the pop-up resto made its way to 40+ countries—and counting.
Its launch in the Philippines in April has witnessed celebrities and media personalities like Kathryn Bernardo, Tessa Prieto-Valdes, Tim Yap, Marie Lozano, Kisses Delavin China Cojuangco, and Chefs Sandy Daza and Sharwin Tee challenging their fear of heights just for gourmet. Open for reservations until May 21, Dinner in the Sky has commissioned Solaire's in-house restaurants and chefs for the food. The prices? The cheapest set of meals is at P9,999; the middle price is P14,999; and the most expensive is at P24,999.
While the expensive meal would move you into thinking, it might not be the same case for its security measures. A certified security officer makes sure you're buckled tight in your seat, which you have the choice to swing to your side and recline up to 160 degrees. Again, your choice!
