Philippine’s Secret Dining Society: A Massive Hit with Locals in Makati


On Thursday, 26 March, three of the biggest Internet companies in the Philippines held a secret dining society for residents in Makati. The event was a roaring success, and proved to be an initiative that the teams will continue in the country.

The event took place at one of Lamudi’s trusted client’s developments – The Beacon Makati, and was hosted in the SkyLounge, which is at the 47th floor of the condominium. Views of the Makati Skyline, Manila Skyline and Laguna Bay provided a stunning backdrop to the exclusive affair.

The three companies held a competition over Facebook during the beginning of March, to allow people to win a seat in the Secret Dining Society. Private vehicles from Easy Taxi’s Easy Plus+ service were used transport the guests from a designated pick up point to the venue.

Daniel Torres, Managing Director of Easy Taxi in the Philippines said “We wanted everyone to have a great night, and take away the burden of traveling to and from the location for the guests. We organised pick up locations in well-known places, and coordinated closely with our drivers and the guests in ensuring everyone got a ride to the venue.”



The evening was opened by Lamudi Managing Director Jacqueline van den Ende, who commented that: “We are so glad that the event was a huge success, it was great to see everyone enjoy themselves and mingle with the other competition winners.”

One of foodpanda’s partners, Relik Tapas Bar, made the event extra special by serving items currently not on the menu, such as: mini mushroom tarts and pesto cream cheese, grilled tanigue white bean and chorizo stew and roasted vegetable quinoa. foodpanda also teamed up with Patron and Wine Depot to serve drinks throughout the evening, and lucky winners had the chance of walking away with a Patron goodie bag at the end of the night.

Mauro Cocchieri, CEO and co-founder of foodpanda in the Philippines added: “The whole event went very smoothly. Everyone loved the venue, and enjoyed the meal that Relik Tapas Bar provided. It was a great opportunity to show-off the various type of cuisines we have in the country.”
