Awed by the ambiance and interior of Vikings Buffet Restaurant branch in SM Jazz Mall in Makati. The place looks so luxurious.












Cakes and Sweets







The crepe station wherein both the male and female crew doesn't know how to make a crepe at all. It took me three times reminding them them that I am ordering a crepe. Haltang ayaw magluto ni guy. They he flipped the crepe eh di durog-durog. When the girl cooked one too as I observed dhail katapat ngtable namin she flipped it too. Just wondering how come they Vikings didn't train this crew. Sa Dad's at Buffet101 matino naman ang mga nagluluto ng crepe dito hindi talaga. 



Bibingka and Puto Bumbong




The very colorful glass chandelier. 

Salad Station









Cheese Platter


Super yummy even its only four kinds of cheese


Churros



Appetizers 


Breads and Fillings



 Japanese Section


Tempuras 












The salmon and tuna is the huge disappointment. It tasted straight from the freezer.  
NOT FRESH !!!


Korean Section




My least like. Didn't bother tasting it. 
Majority of the dishes are dried up and doesn't look freshly cooked. 





Filipino Section



Nothing special in the covered catering tray dishes except these giant crabs.


We were lucky to devour because we were there at the opening. 30 minutes after they refilled it with small ordinary crabs that is no longer yummy. 

Shabu-Shabu




Pick what you like and what broth. It will be delivered on your table with a kalan. 



Chinese Section 





Went here several time to get a hakaw but I ended up luhaan until we finished our entire lunch. It was rarely refilled and whenever I came to get nakuha na ng iba. PASHNEA !

Italian and Spanish Section 

Paella







Baked Oyster 


Super yummy oysters

Lamb Dish


Bellychon

The serving at the opening hour is so yummy. Too bad I only got a little because when I came back almost two hours after latak na lang at di masarap.

Roast Section



The roast beef and lamb is a bit tough but the chicken is yummy.

Grilling Section 




Too bad those who are assigned at the grilling station doesn't know how to grill at all. The chicken sticks was all burned on the other side that its too hard too chew. We ended up just throwing it. The fish slices also was a bit burned when delivered in our table.

Wine Section



They do serve wine of your choice for an added fee.

DRINKS



There are so many to choose from than Buffet 101. Take your pick !

Churros con tsokolate
Berry Crepe since no vanilla ice cream I replaced it with macapuno ice cream
Surprisingly the macapuno ice cream is very yummy





Overall, I love the ambience the most. In terms of food way better than Buffet 101 although it had its misses like : the crepe and grilling station because of the untrained crew, frozen salmon and tuna, tough roast beef and lamb cuts. No spicy toro sashimi, green tea and avocado ice cream that I read some blogs are raving about. In terms of food spread this definitely way better than Buffet101.  By the way they also serve a super yummy taho which I forgot to take a photo.
