Starbucks, Osaka Ohsho, Tenya + more have cool treats for voters
You get a pick-me-up after enduring the lines.
(SPOT.ph) Voting is a right and a privilege, and restaurants sure aren't taking it lightly.
Starbucks, for example has a perky treat. Today, May 9, fall in line, vote for the country's future, get indelibly inked, and head on over to your friendly neighborhood Starbucks. From 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., the coffee chain will be offering a buy-one-get-one deal to those who flash their inked fingers at the register. Available flavors are Chocolate Hazelnut Macchiato and Roasted Caramel Macchiato, which you can get hot, iced, or blended. This deal is available at Starbucks branches that will be open during the non-working holiday.
Meanwhile, bibimbap bar Rock & Seoul at SM North EDSA has come up with a new line of desserts. The first 100 customers who show up with their inked fingers can get their tasty ice cream buns at two for the price of one. Its sister restaurant, Osaka Ohsho, which has outlets in SM Mega Fashion Hall and SM North EDSA, will be treating voters to potstickers all day. Voters who order six pieces of gyoza in any flavor will get six more Original dumplings for free. Only one freebie will be given per table, though.
For their part, Tenya Tempura Tendon will be slashing 20% off the total bill for those who can show their voter's ink. This savory treat is valid only at the BGC Stopover, Market! Market!, SM Southmall, and SM Megamall branches. You can get a similar deal over at Nanbantei of Tokyo, which has branches at Bonifacio High Street Central and Greenbelt 3. Get 10% your kushuyaki and yakitori orders when you perform your civic duty.
If you need to cool down and chill out after waiting in line, visit a Fruitas branch. Order any drink from the Coco Fiesta collection and you can get either a 12-ounce watermelon shake or a 12-ounce buko shake on the house. The Coco Fiesta line was launched only this summer and features Coco De Leche, Coco Mango, and Coco Langka. It's priced at P69 for a 16-ounce glass.
Voting is serious business, so please refrain from staining your finger tips with pen ink.
