777 Saturday Brunch and Siam Spa @ Dhaka Regency

The concept of “brunch” (lunch and breakfast wrapped into a single meal) is a relatively new one in Dhaka's rapidly growing culinary scene. Dhaka Regency has embarked on a promotional feat, which works to reinforce this very concept. From June 20, it has launched its “777 Saturday Brunch Special”- a buffet with an assortment of breakfast and lunch items.
There are dishes from many nooks and crannies of the globe- from beef fajitas and chicken butter masalas to biriyani and sausages, the guests have a wide variety of delicacies to choose from. For breakfast, there is a decent selection of bread and cereals. For lunch, you can start with a host of appetizers, cold cuts and soups (both hot and cold). The assorted cheese platter further offers a point of interest.
There are also various food stations like the pasta station and the omelet station, where food items can be customised to suit personal preferences. Of course, you can then move onto desserts like cheesecake and finish off with tea or coffee.
The Hotel expects a good response to the “777 Saturday Brunch Special”. Most people sleep in late on Saturdays, and would enjoy a hearty breakfast that often run into the afternoon. So this is a perfect opportunity to swing by and check this offer out.
This promo would be taking place every Saturday from 11 am to 2 pm, and the price is Tk 777 all-inclusive.

Dhaka Regency, the city's latest 5-star business boutique hotel, has been in soft operation for the last two years and is gradually completing all its projects towards its grand opening, scheduled sometime during the end of this year. Part of this effort is to set up the largest spa in the city, built on over 5000 sq. ft. of space, the Dhaka Regency Siam Spa.
Inspired by the serene sophistication and attention to detail demonstrated by the contemporary spas in Thailand, the Siam Spa at Dhaka Regency offers both spa and salon services surrounded by a luxurious environment. The spa promises all the amenities of true Thai traditions such as 100% essential oil created aroma therapy, hydrotherapy, herbal sauna, hot compress mineral baths, etc.
The spa, which was launched with a grand opening on June 13th, 2009, is situated on Level 13.

Nando's really really good chicken

Nando's launched its new campaign, “Really Really Good Chicken”, at Dhanmondi on June 17, 2009.

The event
After a long, hot and humid day of work, the guests arrived at Nando's in the evening. Nando's treated them with one of their uniquely and specially made lemonade. One sip immediately removed all the exhaustion of the day and marked the beginning of a very cosy and spicy time.
Afterwards, the signature dishes of Nando's were presented, and with all the guests gathered around the food, the campaign was launched, and welcomed by a big applause. Dinner was served then.

Hot New Deals!
Nando's is offering a loyalty card, which would enable the members to enjoy forty meals with special discounts and service. A raffle draw will also be arranged where the winner will get to enjoy one Nando's meal every week for a year totally free!
On the other hand, Nando's will be offering a few strictly selected corporate houses a deal though which they can have a chicken on the house if they purchase a drink and a sideline. They will also hop in the street and give away this special card- the Earplugs & Back in 5 mins card- to a very few lucky, randomly selected commuters.

A little history
Nando's boosts its use of the Peri-Peri- the rare, ancient and very spicy chilli that grows in Africa. Nando's passion for this unique flavour is reflected by the unique collection of sauces and, of course, the meals they offer - especially the Peri- Peri Chicken: a throwback to the ancient African-Portuguese culture and cuisine.
A young energetic boy of the Mozambique community went exploring one day when the native African people introduced him to this special breed of chilli that they called 'The African Bird's Eye Chili'. They named it 'Pili-Pili'. The Portuguese boy, however, couldn't pronounce the name, and called it Peri-Peri. The boy talked it over with his people, and tried it out, and soon they realised the value of the discovery.
