For families and friends, brunch has fast become a Sunday staple, allowing for a bit more time to sleep in after a late Saturday night out, and the perfect leisurely meal that allows you to spend time with loved ones while unwinding and recharging for the week ahead.

Which is why on all Sundays starting May 6, Holiday Inn & Suites Makati brings breakfast haven Rustic Mornings By Isabelo to Sunday brunch at Flavors Restaurant.




Rustic Mornings is Marikina’s hidden gem, which was started by advertising exec turned chef/restaurateur Portia Dee Baluyut in 2009 as Isabelo Garden Restaurant, a by-reservation-only restaurant which served only pre-ordered dishes. With no formal culinary training, but a lifelong love for food and the creative process, Portia evolved her restaurant into Rustic Mornings in 2012. Serving hearty and delicious all-day breakfast in the heart of Marikina, Rustic Mornings has been named by Looloo as the top breakfast place in the metro in 2013, 2014, and 2015.



Holiday Inn & Suites Makati approached Chef Portia as Rustic Mornings’ casual but delightfully tasteful comfort food fits right in with the hotel’s fun personality. Chef Portia is the second guest chef at Flavors Restaurant, following Pampanga’s famed chef Dennis Lim.



"Sundays at Rustic Mornings are the best,” Portia says, explaining on how families, couples, and barkadas would line up at her restaurant even before they open their gates just to get a table. We have loyal customers coming from the far south of Manila, with some who would even insist me to branch out so it’ll be more convenient for them to visit us regularly." Having this fruitful partnership with Holiday Inn is a great opportunity not only to those who would like to experience our food once again but also to those who have long been wanting to go to Rustic Mornings but just can’t travel too far.”

Flavors Restaurant prides itself in having one of the best buffet selections in Makati City, with a curated selection of Filipino, South East Asian, and Western dishes. This month of May, the business hotel’s clientele can enjoy Rustic Mornings’ hearty selection for Sunday brunch.
