I'm actually pretty late with this post, seeing as Vikings has already been making waves throughout the Manila all-you-can-eat scene. All real foodies appreciate a good buffet, and Vikings is here to provide us with just that: the chance to dine in luxury without having to pay extravagant amounts of cash.
The moment you enter the restaurant, you already feel the different ambience Vikings has. This isn't just a place to shovel endless amounts of food into your mouth; the spacious area, the bright appealing interiors, and of course, the gorgeous view of the ocean, all of this provide a great environment for not only eating food, but enjoying it as well.
The buffet spread is separated into several stations: Western, Asian, shabu-shabu, grilled, desserts and even a children's menu. They have the usual area filled with Western appetizers such as soup, fresh salad greens and cold cuts, as well as Filipino-Western entrees such as rice, lengua (ox tongue), braised beef, pasta, mashed potatoes, fish fillet, etc.
And of course, practically dozens of fantastic sushi and sashimi for you to choose from, all of which are freshly made by the chefs behind the counter.
A shabu-shabu area serves snack food such as fish balls, dumplings, and others, cooking in boiling hot soup. One area serves roast beef, while another serves various grilled meats and seafood.
If all of it is still not enough for you, you can even order baked oysters and mussels, or even steamed crab to be brought to your table for your group to enjoy. (Availability depends on the time you visit, either lunch or dinner, weekday or weekends.)
If you're anything like me, the best part of any buffet is the dessert table. And Vikings certainly does not disappoint. With 8 flavors of ice cream ranging from chocolate to ube to avocado...
... to cookies and cakes and cute little pots of chocolate mouse, mango pannacotta, and creme brulee...
Even self-serve frozen yogurt in two flavors! How awesome is that!
