Celebrating Father's Day at Mario's

Father's Day is just around the corner but we already celebrated it a week early at Mario's.  It was a not-so-suprise treat for hubby because we've been celebrating Father's Day (Mother's Day) a week early to avoid the crowd, but ends up celebrating again on the exact day (along with the crowd)- haha.

Luckily, we went to Mario's on a Sunday because they have lunch buffet and we haven't tried that yet.  Also, we love the relaxed and homey ambiance of the restaurant. 


Cochinillo!!!! I always check the carving station first whenever I dine at buffet restos. Aside from this delicious cochinillo (I soooo love the "balat"), Mario's also have turkey, beef, and lamb. 


The buffet choices varies every week except for the carving station and we were told that a Special Father's Day menu is being created.

We started our meal with some baked oysters and pinsec frito from the appetizer section. There's also some salad and sushi rolls.


There's some pasta, salmon, beef, pork, chicken dishes ... Hubby enjoyed the salmon :)


Paella Negra. Hubby doesn't really comment on food but this paella negra left a pretty good impression on him and even compared it to another resto's paella negra and says that Mario's paella negra is better (and to think that he used to like that resto's paella negra). 


Here are the desserts- daughter and I love the creme brulee and the tiny chiffon cakes with caramel fillings. 


Mario's famous Ceasar Salad. This is not on the buffet spread but is included. You can order this and maybe have this prepared right in front of you. Really, really good ceasar salad. 


Here's what the resto looks like. This area is a bit far from the buffet table but it offers more privacy than the tables near the buffet spread. And did I mention that there's a live piano bar during Sunday lunch? 


Here are my loves while enjoying the sumptuous buffet at Mario's. Happy Father's Day to my hubby. Thank you for being the Best Dad to our daughter.

Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.


Max's Beef Salpicao and Adobo Ribs

Max's, one of the country's beloved restaurant doesn't just serve that "sarap" to the bones fried chicken but has a whole range of yummy Pinoy favorites on the menu such as kare-kare, sinigang na hipon, sizzling tofu, and others. But of course, every one is always excited when there's something new on the menu and Max's has two new dishes- Adobo Ribs and Beef Salpicao.
