When travelling in Manila, one of the sure places you will go to is the Rizal Park. And when your done roaming around the park, you can stay, relax and dine at The Hub Rizal Park at Kilometer Zero Marker.
The Hub at Kilometer Zero, Rizal Park is a 5-in-1 place that both local and foreign tourists can go to. The Hub is a lounge, cafe, bar, restaurant and 2GO ticketing office in one.
The Hub’s executive chef Jonathan Landingin said that the meals offered in The Hub are inspired by top tourists destinations in the country. The food selection is designed mostly to bring out the best Filipino cuisine.
One example, that I personally liked, is the Chicken Inasal Sandwich. Inasal is a delicacy known in Bacolod. The Hub’s version is similar to the Bacolod’s inasal (skewered chicken), but with a twist of its own taste, aside from being a filling of wheat breads.
2Go‘s vice president for Passage Business and Commercial Officer Stephen Rey Tagud said that this is the first venture of 2Go to offer hospitality business off-the-ship and into the land. It is a good thing though, that the opportunity of a good place, in Rizal Park, was offered.
Tagud said that this is an opportunity for 2Go to extend its services beyond seafaring. Plus, it is also a good way of extending to their customers better service by providing a pseudo-waiting area just before they board the ship.
A free shuttle from The Hub going to the terminal is given to on-board passengers of 2Go before their scheduled trips.
Daniel Slakmon, head Hotel Quality and Development Manager, trained the baristas and concocted the coffee and cocktail selections in The Hub to add more attraction to customers.
Tagud added that The Hub is also an ideal venue for social gatherings. They offer the place for wedding, debut and other gatherings.
The Hub at Kilometer Zero Rizal Park is just between the Chinese Garden and Rizal Lights and Sounds, near the Rizal Monument.
