MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – In an effort to make amends, Aristocrat along Roxas Boulevard wants to offer free meals to all volunteers of the Manila Bay cleanup, in exchange for the rescinding of DENR’s cease and desist order for the restaurant’s continued operation.
Aristocrat was among establishments tagged and ordered closed by DENR for contributing to the pollution of Manila Bay.
A spokesperson for Aristocrat told The Adobo Chronicles that they will serve their famous barbecue chicken with java rice and atchara (pickled green papaya) to all those who volunteer to help in the clearnup on weekends.
Aristocrat’s move is in sharp contrast to Manila City Hall’s recent announcement that those who volunteer to help in the Manila Bay clearnup need to secure a permit.
