Spiral Buffet at Sofitel

I know Im not a good buffet eater, but it's just hard to resist Spiral's Buffet Promo. My friend Kat and I gave in to temptation as we bought 2 vouchers from CashCashPinoy some months ago. Spiral's Buffet promo rate is delightfully priced at P1,400 only. This also includes bottomless iced tea. Good enough compared with their normal dinner buffet rate at P2,564 (seriously, ganyan ka-mahal!)

hello again Spiral


We finally used the vouchers last Easter. A dinner feast to celebrate that our Lord has truly risen!

Again, it's prohibited to take photos of the food in the buffet table. But here's a long and overwhelming preview of this buffet:


Spiral's longest buffet experience


Warning: Do not scroll down if you're hungry...


Food Porn | Spiral Dinner Buffet

penne pesto with shrimp and mushroom
1st plate is always for my comfort food


prime rib with veggies + unforgettable creamy mashed potato
most tender prime ribs ever. that mashed potato is unforgettable


farfalle carbonara with bacon, shrimp and mushroom
i like how saucy and creamy it is!


baked salmon, grilled salmon, and grilled pork with mango salsa
this baked salmon with that special sauce is perfect!


pizza slices


And since Kat and I cant get enough of the prime ribs and salmon, we went back to get another plate. A full one.


best tasting prime ribs and baked salmon that I've tried
as of now, Im still drooling whenever I see this plate.


Moving on..

Japanese delight
thumbs up!


sukiyaki
i dont like their version at all


grilled lobster + some indian food


Im not really a fan of Chinese food, but for this session, I gave it a try.

grilled lobster again + hakaw + siomai + peking duck
these are good! im just not really a fan


We were so full, but we remembered to try the most raved about, not to mention expensive, Foie Gras dish.

foie gras (duck's liver)
err, im not impressed. or dahil hindi ako sanay sa pagkaing mahal?! ^_^


To wash away the liver taste, we tried these varieties of cheese and spreads.

not sure if these versions are good. im not a fan of cheese.


oh yes, tinikman namin yang lahat!


Just when Kat and I were taking a break before eating dessert, Sugar (a staff) handed me a box of specialty cake! Ansaya! Thank you!


coffee ice cream with walnuts, pistachio, almonds, and choco chips
below expectations. Manila Hotel's Cafe Ilang Ilang's Gelato is way better

mango crepe with choco syrup
below expectations too. EDSA Shangri-La's HEAT and Dusit's Crossover's versions are more heavenly


white choco cake, dark choco cake, cheesecake, etc!


thank you so much for this surprise cake!
may instant pasalubong ako kay ate Judith and mang Narcing (my parents)


Highly recommended. Prime ribs at baked salmon palang, sulit na sulit na! Im sure I'll go back here, hopefully to treat my parents next time. Abang-abang muna ulit ng promo! ^_^

Update 5/16/2011
Here goes my Club Room experience at Sofitel. An overnight stay in this luxurious five-star hotel.

Club Sofitel


Lobby isn't that grand as I expected. No high ceilings. No chandeliers. What's present in the lobby are the videographers, photographers, and a bunch of wedding entourage. And there were at least 2 wedding preps that's happening that time! The lobby is nothing but crowded.

Anyway, my friend Remay booked a superior room for P8,000++, without breakfast. Luckily, the staff upgraded our accommodation to a Club Room. Sweet!

Club Room @ Sofitel

The room is nice, but it still fell short our expectations. Nothing to complain about the facilities but it just looked too simple for a Club Room. Mind you the actual cost of this room is at least P11,000.

L'Occitane (only!)

The bathroom is spacious. Toiletries provided are L'Occitane's. Shower room is big too. But the bathtub is missing. And I dont understand why.

Overall, I think this room best suits the people with business purpose. But for those who want to experience luxury in a 5-star hotel, this is not the perfect room for you. Oakwood Premier is better.

nina said...

Hindi ko rin ma-gets ang appeal ng foie gras. Twice ko nang sinubukan, di talaga keri.

marxtermind said...

Didn't know na bawal pala ang magpicture ng mga food sa buffet tables mismo. Meron akong mga pics sa entry ko eh, wala naman nagsita (unlike sa Market Cafe, hehe). Hehehe. :P Great free cake!!! :D

I really must try Manila Hotel's buffet. Maghihintay nga rin ako ng vouchers. LOL! :)
