Buffet 101 at the New Glorietta
3rd Floor, Glorietta 2, Ayala Center, Makati
22 September 2014
On a whim my wife and I visited the newly opened Buffet 101 at the New Glorietta, we were enticed by the promise of an elegant and upscale buffet that they were able to deliver in their Mall of Asia branch. Their tagline of serving the same level of gastronomic experience as in upscale hotels is up for my judgment.
2nd Floor, Wumaco Building, BHS, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig
The problem with BGC is that the food scene has a very limited buffet choices in the area. If you are the kind of person who likes unlimited choices and selections, then BGC may not be the place for you. But things may be taking a turn for the better with the opening of Yakimix PRIME at Bonifacio High Street. So as a treat to my sister for finishing her review classes, we decided to take her out along with my kids to the newly opened buffet joint.

Nonetheless, due to her insistence and probably because I also wanted to pig out, I agreed to do it; the place is somewhat familiar to everyone by this time. The restaurant at BHS Central owned and operated by Senator Pia Cayetano, an ardent health buff and advocate; SLICE. I was intrigued and excited by the concept and the buzz.
I’m a big fan of anything sweet, if it has sugar, count me in! It was no surprise that when Krispy Kreme opened in the Philippines, I became an instant addict. Now with the different donut shops opening in Manila, this foreign franchise started knocking on my sweet tooth consciousness. It was just one random afternoon when my wife and I decided to buy a dozen at J. Co on our way home.
After a hearty dinner, we decided to have dessert at our favorite gelateria – Gelatissimo. I first tried this gelato joint a few years back when they opened at Greenbelt and I must say I fell in love with their gelato immediately. Just a heads up to those who are not familiar with gelato, it’s much creamier than ice cream because it has less fat and denser because it has less air. Continue reading →
