Horizon Café recently opened its newest branch (its 4th overall) located in Jinjiang Inn-Makati.
The restaurant opened just in time for the holidays and at a time when businesses and tourism establishments are steadily bouncing back from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The newest branch launched just days after the Horizon Café Iloilo location reopened its doors to the public.
Horizon Café traces its origin in Iloilo City, championing Iloilo’s pride dishes like kansi and batchoy. The flagship branch located at the topmost floor of Injap Tower Hotel in Iloilo is the core inspiration of the resto’s name, with the scenic view of the City of Love, and its majestic skyline on the horizon.
As the group opens more Horizon Café locations in Metro Manila, they localized and embraced the hotel’s brand identity by offering Asian dishes alongside their signature Filipino food.
Another highlight of the Horizon Café is the Binondo-inspired artwork that are proudly displayed at the restaurant’s function rooms. Binondo, the Oldest Chinatown in the world, with the melting pot of two great cultures (Filipino and Chinese) serves as the inspiration for the resto’s menu and restaurant design.
During the launch, guests were treated with a festive spread that celebrated Filipino and Chinese cuisine. A live cooking demo was held, where the executive chef prepared one of Horizon Cafe’s specialties—the Beef Cansi. The kansi is an Iloilo delicacy which is like a cross between sinigang and bulalo.
An all-pinoy trivia game and the popular Pinoy Henyo were held for entertainment. The intimate gathering was capped off with a raffle draw where winners got complimentary staycations in any of Hotel 101 Group hotels.
Horizon Café branches are located in Hotel 101-Manila, Jinjiang Inn-Ortigas, Jinjiang Inn-Makati, and Injap Tower Hotel-Iloilo.
