I love buffets! There’s something about having to choose from a wide array of food that appeals to me. I mean, think about it–there’s no commitment with a particular dish or cuisine nor is there any pressure from ordering (I hate it when the dish I order isn’t what I expected it to be). Plus you can go back as many times as you like, which means you can take your time and eat slowly. I think this is partly why I enjoy going on hotel staycations–because I get to enjoy the breakfast buffet in the morning.
Now, I’ve heard plenty of great things about Marriott Cafe, which was recently re-opened. News or feedback about restaurants tend to travel fast, thanks to social media and so far, people have good things to say about this resto. I had to try it out for myself, so I booked a reservation for two for lunch and gave their buffet a go.
I couldn’t have been happier. My lunch turned into a 3-hour indulgence, as I savored every one of my favorite dishes, including dessert! There were my go-to starters: cold cuts, cheese, bread and more cheese; then sushi and sashimi; super fresh seafood (crab and shrimp, yay); your choice of steak (ribeye, t-bone, etc), prime rib with sauces and sidings; Korean, Chinese and Filipino dishes; and amazing desserts like cakes, pastries, and pies; chocolate fondue and homemade ice-cream. I haven’t given in to my cravings like that since I was pregnant, so this truly was a memorable day.
I think this would be such a great venue for a family dinner or reunion. Everyone could have their favorites without having to order so many dishes at once! I also recommend it for date night, especially if you want to indulge with your husband (hey, it works for us). A buffet lunch or dinner at Marriott Cafe is so worth the money–I love how all the best cuisines and dishes are just in one place! Scroll down to see what’s in store for you when you dine here.
