Food & Dining My Kids Sponsored Posts Staycations

Late Dinner at Marriott Cafe. Alone but not Lonely.

Like I mentioned in my previous related post, the girls & I were supposed to meet up for a buffet dinner at the Marriott Cafe of Marriott Hotel Manila. Their tito Richie, the famous THE PICKIEST EATER IN THE WORLD, arranged for a surprise dinner for us & I was over the moon with JOY! I love buffets. You know it, I know it, the world knows it. ‘Nuff said.

Unfortunately though, the girls didn’t get to make it as they were tied up elsewhere. The Youtube Fan Fest which was supposed to have scheduled breaks in between (3 parts) went longer than expected so it was a non-stop affair for the kids. No water & food break at all.

But nothing & no one can dampen my happy spirits. Hey, we’re talking about a buffet here! . ;) An Ocean Surf at that. Plus, no one around to tell me to stop piling my plate mile high with all things delectable. Bring it, game on!

The cats were away, so the mouse got to play. Let’s have a counting game with Count Von Count, shall we? :P



Cheese & bread platter. ONE! hahahaha *lightning *thunder





Sushi & Sashimi Platter. TWO! hahahaha *lightning *thunder



Thank you Marriott Cafe for an awesome platter of the freshest catch from the sea! Thank goodness I’m on a SEE-FOOD diet!




Stir Fried Scallops. THREE! hahahaha *lightning *thunder




Teppanyaki Beef. FOUR! hahahaha *lightning *thunder





Rib Eye Steak. FIVE! hahahaha *lightning *thunder



Out with the old plate, and in with the new. The Turf to my Surf. A clean cut, no-frills Rib Eye with a side of peppercorn sauce. Still within the confines of my SEE-FOOD Diet! ;)





Dessert Platter. SIX! hahahaha *lightning *thunder “I could have counted all night! And still have counted more!”



So this is how it feels to eat without the pang-gulo. Unli dessert!

SIX!!! I certainly put a new meaning to the phrase.. PINABAYAAN SA KUSINA didn’t I! :P I would have gotten more except my lovely hosts came to join me & ended my love affair with the buffet table.

They were probably tasked by the kitchen patrol to stop me lest I emptied what was left of their servings. ;)


With the lovely ladies MICHELLE GARCIA, Director of Marketing & communications, Marriott Hotel Manila. And Aimee Lagman, Assistant Marketing Manager. Thank you so much for the love! <3

As the girls didn’t get to make it for our surprise dinner treat, the super thoughtful ladies sent us them some food so they don’t go to sleep hungry. Mommy is super touched! :’)


Margherita Pizza 525 php for my Lovey. Tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, fresh basil leaves. And Grilled Portuguese Chicken Peri Peri 650 php for my famished Ate. Homemade chili and herb spiked marinade, mojo potatoes, roasted corn on the cob. They are very very thankful!

‘Course, I kept dreaming of the ones that got away..


Fluffy marshmallows!!! Til we meet again my loves! </3

Thank you so much Richie, Michelle & Aimee, and Marriott Hotel Manila for your graciousness! The GOppets gals are very very happy! :-*Now back to counting food, I mean sheep.. coz bedroom weather! Stay safe & dry everyone!

    I also wouldn’t mind eating alone at Marriot (nakawala sa kulungan! yey!) but I sure would also miss having to share that fabulous dining experience with somebody. Oh well, sacrifices sometimes have to be made… hahaha… #charaught! #chauce!

    Sana may magbigay din sa amin ng ganyang klaseng surprise pag nag-check-in kme sa Marriot, hahaha… #pagingpickiesteater

      i-text na si pickiest eater ora mismo! ;)) Naaliw nga ako ng husto kahit by myself people watching & enjoy pabalik-balik sa buffet nang walang naka-buntot at nagsadabing “mom you can’t eat that” hehe!
