We’ve all heard about Lunch and Dinner buffets, and buffets that center on a particular cuisine like Filipino, Japanese or Korean. But have you ever tried going to a breakfast buffet?
Honestly, I have by no means been to a breakfast buffet till I redeemed the Eat-All-You-Can Buffet voucher for the Skylounge in Vivere Hotel. I got this voucher in MetroDeal, initially thinking that it was for any dinner buffet. But after reading the information I realized I got the wrong concept. My mom, who I was supposed to treat to dinner, scolded me for this mainly because we would really need to be around the road early inside the morning simply to make sure we get to Vivere Hotel in time.
It is about 30 minutes to an hour’s drive from Mandaluyong to Muntinlupa on commute and mom woke me up as early as five:30 AM to prepare for the trip. We arrived in the hotel at about 7:00 though, since we had difficulty following the directions (Mom maintain insisting to go to a single path although I insisted to go the other making our taxi driver confused.)
We forgot all about our argument when we stepped up the 31st floor on the hotel where the Skylounge is situated. I presented the two Metro Deal vouchers in the staff standing by the door and we had been cause our seats. My mom is usually a bit afraid of heights so we preferred to become seated a little bit away from the windows. With no the view from the buildings beneath and only the skyline in front of us, it gave us an impression that we were genuinely dining up in the clouds inside the sky!
But needless to say, we should not forget the star from the show: the Breakfast Buffet.
I had initially thought that the menu will be composed of Silog (fried rice and egg) meals complemented with pan de sal and coffee or juice. I was wrong. I’d in no way believed I’d see as substantially number of breakfast meals as I did at the Skylounge. On 1 table there had been pancakes, waffles, muffins, and other kinds of breads and pastries. A further table held the savory dishes like scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, and even bistek. There was also a table dedicated to fresh fruits and salads. My mom was hesitating at first but later asked me to get seconds to create confident we have been obtaining our money’s worth. As for me, I tried to consume a bit of anything as significantly as my stomach can deal with it. My favorite was the bacon, which was perfectly cooked to a crisp, as well as the waffles, which has a wealthy buttermilk taste that complements nicely for the blueberry jam.
It was one of the most heavenly breakfast we’ve got tasted so far. I wish I had purchased more MetroDeal vouchers. Simply because we’re absolutely coming back for much more.
