Too many buffet choices for diners con gusto like moí. I'd rather go a la carte but there are buffet options I wouldn't mind. Like the one at the Peninsula Makati.
The Escolta buffet is a manageable size. Enough to tempt you, not too much to overwhelm you. I love seafood so I always find myself in this section.
I love that they have Sinigang (shrimp or pork?) instead of the usual thick chowders. With salmon, prawns, oysters, mussels and other sashimi/sushi items, I'm good :-)
Then of course there's the sinful pork bellies, Bbq's, curried meats, salads, cheese plus the crepe and ice cream desserts!
In Escolta, it's quiter and buffet dining seems more..... leisurely. So unlike many other buffet places. Lastly, they serve the best coffee.... so unlike the diluted brews in other places. So there....
