Buffet restaurants are very popular nowadays. With the decent price and a very wide spread, it is a smart choice for big eaters. It is so popular that reservations are a must and walk-ins would have to go through a very long wait to be seated.
The only thing that concerns me is that the popular buffet restaurants are very crowded. The tables are placed too close to each other in order to maximize the space. There are times that it becomes really noisy wherein conversations become challenging.
Good thing we discovered Eastwood Cafe at the Eastwood Richmonde Hotel. It is strategically located right in the heart of Eastwood City in Libis, Quezon City. Just beside the Eastwood Mall (they share the same parking lot) They have an amazing spread of Asian cuisine (Japanese, Chinese, Mediterranean, Thai.) The place is cozy and the ambiance is perfect.
Let me share some of the dishes we had.
|Shrimp and Apple Salad|
|Tofu - ???|
|Spicy Thai Chicken|
|Pork in Yellow Curry|
|Seafood in Cilantro and Tomato|
They also have their grill station. Choices include premium cuts of beef, pork, fish and squid.
It would not be complete without the usual, Japanese station with assorted maki. They also serve shrimp tempura.
I love their dessert station, one of the best I have every tried. They have lots of selections too. Here are just a few.
|Brazo de Mercedes|
|Pineapple Upside Down Cake|
They have chocolate fondue with different dips, fresh seasonal fruits, rum balls, blueberry panna cotta, assorted cakes, eclairs, cookies, etc.
They also serve lemon ice tea (which was really good), brewed coffee and fruit infused water for free.
You can also order wine which is available per drink or bottle. This is a perfect pair to their assorted cheese and nuts selection, which is part of the buffet.
Our overall experience is wonderful and we highly recommend this place if you want to avoid the crowd and have good food. About the price, its approximately Php 2,100 for 2 inclusive of taxes and surcharges.
Eastwood Cafe is located at 17 Orchard Rd, Eastwood City, Quezon City. You may check their website for more details. you
