Christmas is definitely just around the corner. How many times have you read or heard this line?! With just 29 days to go, it really is just a few more sleeps to go! In line with this, Century City Mall invited a handful of bloggers, myself included, for an evening of great food and new discoveries as we discover more reasons to #LoveChristmas.  What better way to do this than to experience  their not-so-hidden-gem called Hole In The Wall?

To be honest, I’ve only been to Century City Mall once since it opened. It was when Tin aka Manila Fashion Observer and I dropped by Blue Carreon  Home. Since then, I haven’t been back. So last week was my second visit to Century City Mall and I was glad that a lot of stores are now open just in time to shop for Christmas. Later on this post I’ll let you in on some reasons why you should shop at Century City Mall as they’ve got awesome deals for everyone.

Century City Mall graciously showcased one of the reasons why one must visit their establishment. Foodies and even non-foodies, when in Century City Mall, you must dine at Hole In The Wall.

Hole In The Wall is located at L4 of Century City Mall. It’s an upscale food hall that houses a handful of well-curated restaurants that cater to people with different palates & preference when it comes to comforting and hearty meals.

The cozy interior of Hole In The Wall reminds me of a cabin lodge or a rustic restaurant in a theme park. I love how sheltered and relaxed the ambience is. It doesn’t really feel like a food hall which is usually brightly lighten with a splash of chaotic climate.

Comfy couches, lounge chairs, wide enough spaces in between make Hole In The Wall pleasant, especially for diners who want to bring their kids along with them.

The staff were efficient and would serve service water only when you ask for it- I love that they do so no water is wasted. They would also immediately clean up as soon as you go and would gladly assist you should you need to have your food packed for take out.

Cleanliness is next to godliness. Now if all food halls were like this.

Don’t just stop at dinning at Hole In The Wall as Century City Mall has a lot in stored for their shoppers this holiday season. There are more reasons to #LoveChristmas at Century City Mall. Every Sunday of November and December, shoppers get to meet Kris Kringle himself as he roams the five-level mall. Santa will also be giving away gifts and holiday treats to random shoppers courtesy of Century City Mall’s generous tenants. Joining him is his special helper, a “reindeer dog”, which will be accepting donations in behalf of the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).

The festivities continue at the 4th level of Century City Mall al fresco area, where a giant Snow Globe awaits shoppers. Kids and kids at heart can enjoy the snow and have their photo taken inside its picturesque Winter Wonderland backdrop. You get a print out copy of your photo too! There’s also a daily fountain show which happens every 12 noon, 6 PM and 8 PM.

You can also get serenaded with carols performed by non-profit organisations Handog ng Pagmamahal and Sheavers Assoication at basement 1 every Sunday until the last Sunday of December. Century City Mall also holds a regular Sunday Mass at 11 AM at its Event Center at the 5th level.
