Kap’s basketball bud is a partner in yet another buffet place in Manila, THE FOOD CLUB. We were invited at the opening but unfortunately, we weren’t able to go. So to make it up & to support Ced & Cez Ramirez’ latest venture, we celebrated Judith’s birthday there a couple of months ago.

When we got there at 6PM it was half filled. But by 6:30 the resto was full of buzzing crowd & it was every man for himself at the buffet. Value for money is what you get at buffets if you’re a heavy eater. And believe me, I was with a bunch of ’em! ;))
Upside is, you have plenty of food choices. Downside is, it’s really hard to enjoy your meal when you have to fight for it every single time. Best to go on weekdays when the crowd is not as much.
My first place will always & forever be the sushi & sashimi station. The octopus was love, but its tray was always empty. I guess the rest of the diners also found it LHAV! :P Same goes for the oysters. You’re lucky if you get some before the hungry crowd gets their share. There were supposed to be lobsters on weekends which is why the buffet costs more, but the earlier customers got to them first & there were no more refills after. So you better get there early if you want to catch some. Sadly though, and as you can see, the tuna & salmon sashimi were not fresh.
Newly refilled oysters, but it’s a crowd favorite so it’s usually gone in less than 60 seconds. :P
The ebi tempura was exactly that. Ebi, not prawns. Which means you have to get double to make up for its puny size. :) I liked that the had jelly fish & century eggs though.
Peking duck rolls.
There’s a make your own taco station too which the kids enjoyed.
Assorted tempura: Ebi, veggie, kani, squid, and fish.
Since we had steak for lunch, I skipped the carving station in lieu of seafood.
Beverages of your choice are available from wine & beer, to fruit shakes, juices & soda and the usual coffee & tea meal ender. Unlimited with your buffet.
Of all the dessert assortment on my plate, I enjoyed the Filipino spread best. The cakes are not the restaurant’s strongest points in the dessert station.
This was a welcome treat. I love these chewy gummy bears! <3
There’s also crepe, halo-halo as well as assorted ice cream at the dessert station.
You may avail your FREE Buffet a day BEFORE, on your birthday, or a day AFTER as long as you have at least 1 full-paying adult companion. Don’t forget to bring any government issued ID with your name and photo or birth certificate.
Happy birthday Judith! :-*
