The Peninsula Manila, Spices Under the Stars 2018

Som Tam 2.jpg

Spices restaurant’s little pocket garden might just be the best kept secret in the city. It is the perfect setting for a romantic dinner, a place where one can be delighted by starlit skies (at least those not drowned out by bright city lights), exquisite meals under the trees and the caress of the cool breeze (while it lasts) against one’s skin. The al fresco experience of Spices Under the Stars allows you to sit back and connect with all your senses as you dine under the open skies and enjoy a feast of classic and contemporary Thai specialties prepared by Spices Thai Specialty Chef Phaithoon Atthasarn.
