They also have unlimited draft beer but its too matabang.


First Plate
The roast beef is not prime cut. Malitid and hard to chew. I ended up leaving it. POr Loin is yummy. Chicken is okay.

Second Plate


Third Plate

I love the shrimp salad in the bottle.

Dessert Plate
Blueberry and strawberry crepe with vanilla ice cream - yum yum
Cheesecake - yummy

Banana Trifle - okay

Pahabol Plate
French fries tastes like it has been cooked early morning - Yuk!
Pig on a basket - so-so
Chicken Nuggets - first piece yummy but second one is not



Overall, I like the ambience but in terms of food other buffets like Dad's International is much more sulit in terms of quality they are serving. Imagine no wagyu beef, crabs, squids, oysters and peking duck that they use to serve before. The pink salmon section took ages to be refilled. I went 4 times before I was able to get another platito. The roast beef that is the other expensive dish present is so hard to chew. The pizza was sunog ang crust. My happy plate was the dessert plate.

Just a random rant scenario we witness in this resto:  A group of older peeps in the other table who stole candies. They look decent but after their meal they started coming back and forth with plates and glasses of these expensive jelly beans and gummies. When the waiters are not looking the one who is wearing a red headband started pouring all the candies in her big shoulder bag placed below the table.  The candies they have pocketed could have been  equivalent to one full adult meal or maybe more! Mga Filipino talaga nakakahiya.
