LET’S ALL ‘SNACK TO SAWA’ AT BARRIO FIESTA’S MERIENDA BUFFET!


Barrio Fiesta is known for its mouthwatering Filipino dishes. I have experienced dining there once, and I have to admit that their dishes are definitely extremely delicious. That is why no wonder that Barrio Fiesta is one of the most well-known and established Filipino restaurant in the country. Aside from offering delectable Filipino dishes, Barrio Fiesta is also known for its ‘Snack to Sawa’ a.k.a their Merienda Buffet, wherein they also offer famous Pinoy meriendas.

Last Monday (March 16, 2015), I asked Admin Lavern to eat with me at Barrio Fiesta SM North EDSA. So we got to the place quite a bit late (3:00 PM). And as a consequence, some of the plates there are half empty, but lucky us it is not too late at that time that’s why the plates are still being refilled with food by the crews. We’re still able to enjoy the food at Barrio Fiesta when we dine. Haha!  I don’t want to make this story long, so without further ado, here’s our experience at Barrio Fiesta.

Just after you step on the main door of Barrio Fiesta you’ll see the long buffet table at your left. It contains all of the food available in their merienda buffet.

On the first part of the table there you have the different sauces (Soy Sauces, Vinegar Sauce and Sweet and Sour Sauce), Tokwa’t Baboy, Vegetable Balls, Puto, Okoy, Palabok, and Kakanin. I was able to taste all except for the Palabok because I find it unappetizing. As per the taste of those I was able to eat, it’s all good! I really liked the Tokwa’t Baboy and the Vegetable Balls the most! It’s very tasteful!

5

The second part of the table contains Lugaw, Dinuguan, and Lomi (sorry for the messy presentation). Their Dinuguan was very great, so as their Lomi (which I loved the most!). I can’t believe that with only Php 150.00 we’re able to taste such delicious Filipino merienda! That’s totally worth the money!

17

On the last part of the table are the desserts (except for the Ginilng na Baboy): Sandwich, Sweetened Banana Cuts, Camote Cue, Ginataang Halo-Halo, Biko, Kutsinta, and Maja Blanca. I was only able to taste the Maja Blanca, and it taste good! How I wish I was able to taste all of those food! Hmmm… maybe next time!

So here’s our plate! It might look so few but I we really enjoyed it! Besides, we had our 2nd plate, which we’re not able to take a picture of because we’re so hungry at that time. Lol! The fodd at Barrio Fiesta really satisfied us. Actually, it even surpass our expectations because at first, we thought that the food there are just so-so given the fact that the buffet is only for Php 150.00, but then we’re wrong! Lucky us!

34

To sum it up, our experienced at Barrio Fiesta was the most satisfying experienced we ever had! With only Php 150.00 you’ll be able to taste pure Filipino merienda at Barrio Fiesta! It’s totally worth your money! And I promise to come back there when I have my free time. I want to taste all of the food I wasn’t able to taste during my first visit. I would give Barrio Fiesta’s Merienda Buffet a score of 7.5/10! It is because they were able to surpass my expectations and the food was very delicious with a very affordable price of Php 150.00!

WEEKEND FOOD TRIP AT ATWAMANUKAN GRILL!


Since we are always visiting some buffet restaurants, we went again in one of the places in Quezon Ave., in Atwamanukan Grill restaurant. It’s a buffet restaurant for only P145.00 per head. Isn’t it affordable? For me, it’s a big YES! Seriously at P145.00, I can eat at the buffet restaurant like this. This is where you can have a truly cheap buffet lunch or dinner. For the price paid, there’s no doubt that you get excellent value for your money. However, don’t expect gourmet dishes or five-star ambiance or top-quality service. There’s no aircondition in the place but they have industrial electric fans. You go here for one reason alone: to have a full, hearty meal. With this in mind, you won’t go away disappointed.

Atwamanukan is an all Filipino dish buffet. They serve it in deep porcelain cookwares and palayoks for the soups. They serve the following dishes like sinigang na spareribs, tinola, papaitan, garlic rice, veggie rice, plain rice, grilled liempo, chicken barbeque, chicken inasal, chicken curry, chicken afritada, fried chicken, spicy chicken wings, bopis, pata, humba, lechon kawali, sisig, kare-kare, sweet and sour tilapia, fish sinigang, tahong soup, pansit canton, ginisang sayote, beef with ampalaya. Plus they serve different kinds of desserts: fresh pineapple cuts, watermelon, maha, ube, biko, sweetened banana and kamote, sapin-sapin and my favorite mangga with bagoong.

They also offer bottomless drinks (which I’m a fan off). If you get the bottomless ice tea, you don’t have to call the waiters and you wouLdn’t even notice you’ve drinking a lot of it because they keep on refilling it. One complain though, you can use all the plates you want but only one fork and spoon – that might be done also to other buffet restaurants. The staff are attentive, polite but I guess they’re not really that experienced yet.

Over all, the place is an open air, with clean dine-in and buffet area.  It has a big clean restroom with handwash soap and toilet tissue.  Take note, the dining area is available up to 9pm only.  If you feel the night still young, you may go to the nearby comedy bar, Punchline. So if you’re looking for a cheap buffet restaurant, go to Atwamanukan Grill Restaurant. Till’ next time.
