When the Pyramid first opened its doors to the public, the hype was intense. Everyone took photos at almost every corner of this undeniably unique and lovely structure. The name itself makes you curious enough to jump out of your seat and head over to IT Park. Since I live and work in the island of Mactan, it took me quite some time to visit. When I finally had the chance, I was greeted by the beaming lights which made it worth my long drive.
Here are the things I absolutely love about the Pyramid:
1. It is literally a PYRAMID.
There’s no building in the city or maybe even in the whole province that possesses such a shape. Of course, it is meant to remind us of the pyramids in Egypt. Pyramids remain to be a fascination to many including me. Why? If you dig deeper to a pyramid’s meaning, you will find various interesting beliefs about why the shape is special. It is believed that a pyramid has supernatural or paranormal properties – preservation of food, strengthening of wellbeing, etc. Trivia – the collective theories regarding the benefits of pyramids are called Pyramidology. In this case, I can guarantee that this Pyramid has the power of wine and cheese!
2. Every spot is INSTAGRAM worthy
With the rise of Social Media use, particularly Instagram, many people not only visit for good food, but also good ambiance. In fact, people always ask me for restaurant recommendations with instagram worthy spots. This is how you know you are talking to true blue millennial! Pyramid is the new perfect place to take those OOTD or OOTN shots while waiting for your orders.
3. The best FRENCH MACARONS in Cebu
I have tried so many French macarons in Cebu. Unfortunately, there’s very few that are good. For now, the best ones are found in the Pyramid. Can you guess which ones are my favourite? The photo says it all!
4. This is where class and casual blend well
With its French macarons, wine and cheese, Pyramid has an air of sophistication. Most people are intimidated and think that the prices are not affordable. It’s funny because every time I take friends there for the first time, they are surprised by how affordable the food choices are. It’s a very classy place but it’s just also really casual. You can dress nicely but you can just also dress down but while enjoying wine and cheese with friends.
5. It doesn’t hurt your budget!
Aside from good food, good ambiance, the most crucial factor people consider when choosing a place to go to is the price. Although many people would really pay for expensive good food, it is easier to make people come back if it doesn’t hurt their budget. Pyramid offers very affordable food and drink choices so I don’t wonder why people keep coming back.
6. The Wine and Cheese pairing is magical
No words for this! You have to try it yourself.
