Buffet 101at SM Mall of Asia

Buffet restaurants are very much trending these days especially on month of December where family, company and group of friends flock together to fill their tummies with wide array of delectable cuisines.

Originally our Care Group team headed by our sexy and pretty leader Ms. Avic had a reservation at Vikings Luxury Buffet in SM Mall of Asia (MOA) one month ahead of our target date. This is for our exciting Christmas Party this year. But when we called the restaurant to confirm our reservation, we were informed we have no record on their list. Whaaat???

But our disappointment didn’t hamper our moods.  Our second choice was Buffet 101 also at SM By the Bay at SM MOA. Luckily, we got our reservation as clear as the blue sky despite it was already month of December.

And so here comes the exciting tummy filling day.  We arrived at 5:30 pm, surprised to see many people huddling at the vicinity of the restaurant.  We approached the information section, verified our reservation and later was given number 57 and waited for our turn to be served.

The last number called was 28. We were so hungry that I could hear the rumbling of my stomach.  Whew!  It was almost 8:30 pm when finally, we hit the table.

Attack!!!

With An, my closest buddy, we began our tour. The restaurant was full.  Though there were lots of people, here, there and everywhere, we still managed to take our desired foods to eat.

The food stations were all organized.  There were Dimsum, the cold cuts, seafoods for grilling, pizza station, Korean food corner, finger foods, Japanese foods, soup station, salad bar, my favorite nachos, the chocolate fountain, fresh fruits, desserts and more.

We had our first batch of light meal first.

I was so full so I had few desserts to munch

Verdict:

We tasted almost everything even those foods which were new to our eyes and taste buds.  Honestly, some were not good. But of course we have to munch it all until our plates were cleared.  Certainly, I was satisfied feasted on buttered crabs, baked tahong, grilled scallops, nachos, sushi, tempura, salads and the blue lemonade.

And so we left the restaurant with tummies full and with smiles…

 

Ask if I will go back, sure and it would be with my family.
