My bunso was welcomed to the Christian world in 2011 at Malate Church. For the reception, there were a number of nearby restaurants to choose from in the area. Most of them were already booked two months earlier. Fortunately, Shakey’s was still available so I reserved it immediately.

My impression of a baptismal reception was that it should be a little formal compared to birthday parties. I was hesitant at first to hold the event there because the ambiance of Shakey’s seem to be casual compared to those nearby restaurants with function rooms such Max’s, Aristocrat and David’s Tea House to name a few.
That impression changed after I was assured of a unique baptismal reception experience coupled with lower cost of food order and competent staff, specifically the event/marketing officer named Sweet Javier. Based on my encounter with him, he’s a hardworking, talented, fun-loving and outgoing person.
Upon confirming availability of the venue, I visited the branch and paid at least P2,000.00. The remaining balance and other fees shall be paid after the reception finishes. An event and order contract with specific instructions was executed and signed.
Unfortunately, there was a little mishap happened due to an overlapping reservation made by another client on the same date and time. As an appeasement for the inconvenience, Shakey's offered us freebies to go along with our package which made us happy and relieved.

BAPTISMAL RECEPTION FOOD AND PARTY PACKAGE
What’s great about Shakey’s was you have a lot of food options to serve since there were no packages specific to baptismal. Options were: birthday party set packages; Set Menu such as Bunch of Lunch or their group meals. I decided to order several sets of their Monster Meal Deal.
Monster Meal Deal is good for 10 – 12 persons which only costs P1,859.00 . It includes the following:
- Carbonara Supreme Platter
- Spaghetti Supreme Platter
- 2 family size pizzas (Manager's Choice and Pepperoni)
- Chick n' Chips Party Pack (Chicken with Mojos)
- 3 pitchers of Coke products
I had an intimate celebration for only 80 guests, so ordering 8 sets was more than enough. I became happier upon knowing they may also serve it buffet style. The promise of a unique baptismal reception experience was delivered. I definitely recommend Shakey's to be your next party venue either for baptismal or birthday celebration.
