PH | Pigging Out at City Buffet

A friend once told me that buffets are the best places to eat in.  There's something for each discerning palate, making it easier to make decisions on where to eat and what type of cuisine to try.

I admit, pigging out's a past-time.  An enjoyable one most especially when you're with family and friends who enjoy a good meal as much as you.  And it's a good thing that here in the Metro, those newfangled luxury buffet restaurants just keep popping out of nowhere, tempting you with everything they have to offer.

And one of the fairly newer ones is City Buffet Restaurant, located in Robinson's Galleria.

City Buffet Restaurant in Robinson's Galleria

You know the drill.  With over 160 dishes (in different types of cuisine), City Buffet Restaurant tries to play with the other big guns in this new niche (you know who they are).

But what sets them apart are their prices.  Compared to the competition, this resto charges a much lower fee (drinks are included as well).


The food is ok.  There are a few hits and misses (as what can be expected in these buffet type arrangements).

The spread

But at least you've got variety.

Loved everything in this plate

Loved the tempura, but sushi still needs work.  Sushi rice was really dry.

Mousse, cheesecakes and chocolates.  Desserts were fine but not really that luscious and rich.

Drinks were good, especially the fruit punch

Would I try them again?  Sure.  Why not.  They do offer some good dishes, anyway.  J

  1. They are definitely better priced than other buffets, but the sushi! The sushi needs to be perfect! Not dry! Hehe! I love sushi, just to explain my violent reaction.

    But for Php400, I guess I could still give City Buffet a try :)

    1. In a perfect world, it should be tlaga! Pero at P400 bucks lang, they're forgiven. Hehehe! =)

  2. I'm trying to avoid this place because I can always go to Sambokojin. hahaha. :p

    1. I haven't tried that yet. It's shabu shabu right? =)

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
