Lots of people!

Lots of people!

Last week, we went to SM North EDSA at The Block, for lunch. We tried Vikings because it’s the newest buffet –it just opened last February 18.

We stood in line at 10:30 am and reserved a table for 7.  We were lucky to be customer number 25.

When we entered Vikings I started to examine the   place to know which was my first dish for the day.

 

My first serving:

I got sushi, maki, sashimi and rolls for my appetizer. I got a lot of strange-looking maki. I also got some spicy, sweet and salty maki, sushi, sashimi and rolls. I found the tempura on  green rice maki very delicious!

 

My second serving:

IMG_3409I got a plate of calamari, chicken, freshly cooked potato chips and a bowl of pasta. Now it’s time to dig in. The calamari is crunchy outside and soft  inside. The chicken is crunchy but a little too salty. The pasta I ordered has red sauce, chorizo, bacon and parmesan cheese.

My third serving:

There was a long queue for the  baby back ribs, lechon kawali, lamb leg cuts and tenderloin cuts. I only ordered  2 baby back ribs , dunked twice in the BBQ sauce  upon my request.  I got fried rice, two  rounds of freshly cooked potato chips , and Mexican nachos. The baby back ribs were very tender and smokey. I love Vikings Baby back ribs! The Mexican nachos were a little soft because the sauce was on it for too long

My fourth serving:

I got 2 scoops of mint chocolate ice cream, 1 scoop of cookies and cream and 1 scoop of dark chocolate ice cream. The mint ice cream has a lot of chocolate chips and mint flavor. YUM!

For the final round, I got 3 servings of fruit salad.

There are also different kinds of bread, brownies, sweets, stews, dim sum, drinks and grilled seafood. I was stuffed.

When we left at 1 pm, there was a huge crowd outside. They were only starting to call in customer number 99! They all looked very hungry.

IMG_3410 IMG_3397The place is spacious.

The toilets are clean, and the service was good.

The set up is better than Dad’s because the food are on the sides rather than all in the middle.

4**** stars for the service

5***** stars for the food

Thumbs up for VIKINGS!

Thumbs Up!

That’s all for today folks. See you all next time!

Buffet From Circles!

On May 18, 2012, we went to Makati Shangri – La  because we were craving for the buffet at Circles. We sat at the chef’s table, where there was a television. Their theme that night was seafood market. You can pick from a wide array of raw seafood and have it cooked the way you want it. The king shrimp were so big that I thought they were lobsters.  I had it cooked with boiled onions first. Then I had another king prawn with butter and chili. They were both delicious!

There were also some meat dishes. The shawarma was hot and  tender. The pita bread was soft and the stuffings were fresh. The curry was  deliciously spicy.   The mango float was fantastic because the mangoes were sweet and cold.  I wish my sister would make that dessert.

I didn’t have time to taste the beef ribs because it came out later, but it’s ok because my stomach was going to explode already.

Everything on the buffet called my attention, but I could only eat so much! I had sushi, King shrimp, Shawarma ,Roast pork ,Curry, Steamed Vegetables, plain rice, Pasta ,Bagnet (roast pork), Mango float, dragon fruit, oranges , water melon, and Fruit salad.

I wish you’d try Circles sometime…you won’t regret it!
