  • The food looks amazingly delicious. If I'm there I would love to try out
  • There were a lot of variety of different food and desserts. Delicious post!
  • Not Taught At School
    Just wow!! What an article and so many nice pictures, Thanks for sharing
  • This restaurant and its cuisine are obviously really popular in the Philippines with a great and varied selection. Aside from the good variety and value, I like that they charge extra for people who do not finish the food on their plates. I wish more buffet restaurants did this to cut down on a lot of food wastage that happens.
    • Happy and Busy
      I agree! Charging extra will prevent people from getting too much food and just leaving it on their plates
  • This looks like a fabulous place to eat and hang out as well. Love that the place is super clean as that is a huge thing for me when it comes to food and all of the different foods and such look quite delicious.
