Lunch at a floating restaurant? Dinner in the dark? Now those pale in comparison to dining with zombies! Yes, you read that right. For a limited time only, you can now dine with "tamed" zombies at your beck and call.

This is part of TriNoma's efforts in coming up with exciting new twists for their annual food campaign. For this year, it's Choose Your Own Food Adventure! Remember the book series? Now this one is edible.

(Open daily from 12nn to 8pm until October 30, 2016 only)

Hungry for something new? Located at the Level 1 Garden Restaurants is the Zombie Outbreak Diner, a safe post-apocalyptic base camp. The diner is a place for customers to have a unique dining experience with TriNoma's resident zombies. As you take a seat and enjoy your meal, expect to see zombies roaming around, serving you food, or just simply giving you a good scare.
  1. Order a minimum of Php 200 worth from the available food menus at the registration booth at Level 1 Garden Restaurants per person to be granted entrance in the Zombie Outbreak Diner.
  2. Payment should be done at the registration booth.
  3. After placing your order, you can enter the Zombie Outbreak diner and have an exciting experience living and dining with zombies.
  4. Your order will be delivered to you within 30 minutes.
Starting October 15, Saturday, the Zombie Outbreak Diner will be having special events every weekend - one being the "WHODUNNIT: A Crime Solving Game". Here's a not-so-little sneak peek:

You can go solo or take the more fun route, with a group, in helping solve the crime. Part of solving the crime is interrogating the characters but in order for you do so, you need to accomplish some tasks from the four training modules. Like this one where you need to gather the red balls aka "resources" in less than 2 minutes.

Or this one where you need to knock down the zombies using an air gun within a minute.

There were two more which I forgot to document but the most exciting was the one wherein you need to break out of a locked cage in less than two minutes. The most challenging part is you get to do it while a zombie is inside the cage with you.

Now, let's meet some of the characters!
Acting: intense
This guy, the Supreme Leader, is quite intimidating. Good luck interrogating him.
The police, also, the host.
The girl (with the scarf) is the daughter of the killed Lead Research Scientist of the base camp, Dr. Francis Ramon, and the semi-bald guy was her former lover.
Here's Pax using her charm to get some answers.
Pax: Look at me naman while I'm tallking, Beshie.
To help you solve the crime, clues are scattered everywhere.

You will also be needing some serious deciphering (and Sudoku!) skills.

Wanna know who killed the doctor? Well it's for you to find out! Visit the Zombie Outbreak Cafe until October 30 only.

Say hello to the volunteers who helped solve the crime.

If zombies are not your thing, then there's PAWS Pet Cafe!

To enter the PAWS Pet Cafe, customers will just have to order a snack, dessert, or a drink from the available menus at the registration area near the entrance.
