Last Monday, natuloy din ang one month late scheduled Buffet101 lunch. We arrive around 11:00 am and not too long after nagdatingan na rin ang ibang diners.
Waiting Lounge fronting Conrad Manila
We were allowed to enter at exactly 11:30 AM
No peking duck !!!
Fresh salmon that is taking ages to be refilled.
Various Japanese salads
California Maki and Sushi Rolls
The roast beef is not prime cut and hard to chew.
Pork Loin is the only okay meat in the American section. Chicken was so-so.
No baked brocolli :(
This pizza has burned crust bottom
Chicken Nuggets and Pig on Basket
I forgot to take photos but there are only few Filipino dishes. Sadly no squids, crabs and oysters!
Bread and Cheese Section
Only four types of cheese
Panacottas & Jellies
My favorite dessert section - yum yum
Make your own crepe and waffle
Make you own halo-halo
Nothing special. Just ordinary powdered drinks.
They also have unlimited draft beer but its too matabang.
The roast beef is not prime cut. Malitid and hard to chew. I ended up leaving it. POr Loin is yummy. Chicken is okay.
I love the shrimp salad in the bottle.
Blueberry and strawberry crepe with vanilla ice cream - yum yum
Cheesecake - yummy
Red Bean Jelly - yum yum
Chocolate Panacotta - yummy
Banana Trifle - okay
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.
