My hubby and I craved for ramen after we bought grocery goodies in Hypermarket in SM Mall of Asia. However, as we walked on the Ground Floor just outside Hypermarket, my eyes suddenly beamed with excitement upon seeing this Thai Restaurant called Soi. This is in time with my upcoming trip to Thailand this January. I tried Thai food in Singapore but missed out on the famous Pad Thai. I will try this in Soi and see why travelers visiting Thailand are craving to taste this dish.
It was Friday and payday, I got out early from my office for a mall stroll. My hubby was still busy with his work so off I toured around at Landmark, Glorietta and finally at kitchen wares of SM Makati. I was so tired and hungry when my hubby fetched me. Spaghetti and ice tea are enough to sustain the grumbling sound in my tummy. But since he was hungry too, he told me to spend our Friday night at Blue Bay Walk.
In celebration of Mother’s Day today, we will spend the night with a boodle feast at Blackbeard’s Seafood Island North Shore or simply Seafood Island at SM Bay the Bay, Mall of Asia.
And another reason to hype up the evening is the birthday celebration of my youngest brother Choy who is in a two-week vacation (he is based in Singapore). This is his treat. Thanks bro!
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.
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.
The second batch.
The third batch
My dessert… ice cream with chocolate marshmallows with Blue Lemonade.
And the rate
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.
Ask if I will go back, sure and it would be with my family.
