It’s more fun at Hikay-A A +A
Sunday, September 29, 2013
WANT some exciting food encounter outside your own dining table? How about homegrown chows for a fiesta-inspired eating experience?
And how would you like your dinner to be served by dancing waiters? Dancing waiters, yes, and it’s exclusive at Hikay Lutong Pinoy at the Calyx Center in Cebu IT Park in Lahug Cebu City.
While diners devour Hikay’s famous monggo soup, native lechon manok, crispy pata, sweet and sour fish and other traditional Filipino dishes, the dancing waiters, wearing their everyday uniform, entertain the house with performances to the tune of either pop or R&B beats.
This type of restaurant service gig, which is adapted from the Department of Tourism’s promotional campaign “It’s More Fun in the Philippines,” is claimed to be the first in Cebu since other eating places in the metropolis only feature singing waiters—those who serenade diners on special occasions like birthdays.
"The whole idea is to spoil our customers with a unique dining experience to remember.
It’ll be exciting and it’s something we also want Hikay to (have as) trademark. We’re driven by innovation and creativity and as our vision would put it, we want to be everyone’s favorite destination of Filipino cuisine,” said Bruce Cortes Bollozos, operations and marketing manager for the retail division of Innoland Development Corp which Hikay is an affiliate.
Hikay opened in February this year as a host of Filipino concepts and offerings at one of the most dynamic spots in the Queen City of the South. And to complement its fiesta ambiance and menu altogether, Hikay debuted its dancing waiters. Loosen up a bit with Hikay’s dancing waiters perking up your dinner from Friday to Sunday, from 6-9 p.m.
