My First Buffet Lunch In 2014

Who would've thought that after the month-long pigging-out last December that I'd still have space for another one just a few days after New Year's Day? But I have a very good excuse- my best buddy and foodie-mate from Cebu is here so there's reason for another celebration. Also, she was the one who told me about the Saturday lunch promo of 100 Revolving Restaurant for Citibank card holders which began last month. The restaurant is located along C5 in Eastwood.

Thumbs up because I've already tried their Saturday Buffet Lunch at 100 Revolving during its first run last December and I love, love, love the buffet spread there especially the cochinillo. I also love the turkey and the roast beef. I love the salad greens, the pasta, the seafood. And the love the desserts. Okay, I love everything there. Take note: the buffet spread is not as extensive as the buffet spreads in most hotels and restaurant but the difference here is that you want to eat everything here because they're just so delicious. I can't even decide clearly which is my favorite dish or dessert. Please read my first visit to 100 Revolving Restaurant here.

We arrived at the restaurant around 1130am so the buffet table was not that crowded yet. And we got to chose from the sumptuous dishes without bumping elbows with fellow diners.

Look at that cochinillo ... yum yum! Lucky that I was able to take photo before it got hacked, and of course some of the crispy skin ended up on my plate.

The roast beef, turkey, and cochinillo. Yummy and sinful choices indeed. Forget d-i-e-t.

The dessert selections. I love the Croquembouche Caramel Tower. Chef Jessie, I really can't pronounce it properly so I'll just call it the "cream-puff" tower. :) I didn't get to taste it because I concentrated on the Crepe Samurai and Chocolate Mousse and Rare Cheesecake but my friend Jovee gave it two thumbs up. :)

Chocolate Mousse. Heaven in a shot glass.

Sugarfree Mango Cheesecake, the Croquembouche Caramel, and the Crepe Samurai. I can't remember the dark chocolate dessert but it was really, REALLY good. Chef Jessie made it herself. We almost didn't get to taste it because we were about to leave already but she insisted that we try her creation. She said that she learned it in France.

PS. Not in the photo are the huge prawn & vegetable tempura, lamb, beef ragout, grilled seafood, pork dish, salpicao rice, two choices of pasta, three choices of salad greens. Wasn't able to take photos because I was too busy eating. Shhhh! Also, I noticed that some of the dishes today were not included in the menu during the buffet's first run. Two thumbs up especially for "repeaters" like me. ;)

Saturday Lunch Buffet will end on January 25 and according to Chef Jessie, reservations already full. Hoping that they'll extend the promo. :)

That's us with Chef Jessie. Not in the photo is C (the one from Cebu) who left ahead of us because of a previous engagement. Thank you Chef for the wonderful and memorable lunch. Looking forward to another visit in the near future. (note to self: must.exercise)

PPS. The Papal Nuncio, Archbishop Giuseppe Pinto was also dining at the restaurant earlier. I got blessed and I also feel blessed especially at the onset of the new year. Wishing my family, Chef Jessie, friends, and everyone a blessed 2014. :)

NEW RESTO ALERT: Saigosan in Uptown Mall

Konnichiwa Saigosan! A new and funky izakaya recently opened at Uptown Mall headed by Chef Chris Oronce. This izakaya not only serves delectable dishes but is also a visual-feast. Inspired by animes, mangas, and JPop culture, Saigosan even has a train wherein you can hop from Kyoto to Osaka without a JR Pass! 

Salcedo Market x Legaspi Market Tour

We haven't visited the weekend markets for years so I was giddy with excitement because I was able to visit both Salcedo and Legaspi markets this month, thanks to our Dusit Thani Manila staycation . To differentiate the two, Salcedo market  is held every Saturday at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village Makati while Legaspi market is held every Sunday at the Corinthian Carpark in Legaspi Village Makati. Since we were coming from Dusit Thani Manila, it was quite a long walk but it was early in the morning (around 8AM) and even Ayala and Makati Avenues were still without cars. Wow! 

NEW RESTO ALERT: Hà Nội Phố (Ha Noi Pho)

Makati has been a go-to place for my family and I to grab a meal or sometimes just to have a cup of coffee. Though, really, it’s mostly just us visiting our favorite spots. Recently, my mom went out of town so it was just my dad and I who went out for dinner.
