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!

21

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!

ASIAN FOOD TRIP AT THE BUFFET ASIA RESTOBAR!


Being a student, it is really hard to find time to relax because of the paper works and busy schedule. That’s why my friends and I always find time to have a short break from our paper works and busy schedules; we give ourselves a break like eating in a buffet restaurant.  They searched in different buffet restaurants and they found this buffet restaurant in West Ave., Quezon City, the Buffet Asia.

At first, I’m not the type of person that eats a lot. I’m just contented with small amount of food, that’s why I know to myself that I won’t enjoy eating in a buffet restaurant. As I’ve observed, people enjoy eating in a buffet restaurant because they can eat the food that they want. And because of my friends’ influence, I’ve enjoyed eating in a buffet restaurant. So here is my experience in Buffet Asia.

The first person who discovered Buffet Asia is one of my closest friends. He just invited us to eat there. Buffet Asia is a buffet restaurant that allows its customers to take out of their leftovers, and I think you guys may like it especially to those people who easily get bloated. I think they did that to be their advantage among other buffet restaurants, because some of the buffet restaurants around Manila and Quezon City do not allow their customers to have leftovers. And if it happens that their customers have leftovers, they are pressured to pay twice the amount that they’ll be paying. For only Php 399 you can eat what you want from their buffet table, including bottomless drinks.

The Buffet Asia offers Filipino, Japanese, Korean; Vietnamese, Chinese and Thai Cuisines and I think you guys will like it.

As I’ve said, Buffet Asia offers Filipino Cuisines. They have Sinigang, Bicol Express, Menudo, Kare Kare and Adobo Rice. When I was there, I was not able to taste their Bicol Express, Menudo and Adobo Rice, but I was able to taste their Kare-Kare instead. I like their Kare-Kare and I think it really tastes good.

Next is the Japanese Cuisine. They have different kinds of Sushi. I really like California Maki to the bones, that’s why I consider it as one of my favourite dishes among all the dishes on their buffet table. I was the only one who enjoyed eating Makis among our group, and my friends have the Dynamite instead.

They also have Korean Cuisine. We all know that Koreans are fond of eating Kimchi, so Buffet Asia wants its customers to experience what Kimchi tastes like (they also have Kimchi Rice). Moreover, Buffet Asia also has Vietnamese, Chinese and Thai Cuisines. They have Creamy Veggies for the Chinese Cuisine and Yellow Curry for the Vietnamese Cuisine. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to taste all of the food on their buffet table.

Lastly, Buffet Asia also offers desserts that obviously all of us will like. They have different varieties of desserts on their buffet table. They have salads, chocolates and some sugar-coated stuff there. I like most of their desserts. It tastes great!

Aside from being a buffet restaurant, Buffet Asia is also a RestoBar. Buffet Asia is the only buffet restaurant to have an Acoustic Live Band Entertainment that happens every Friday and Saturday from 6:00 pm onwards. Given the fact that Buffet Asia is also a RestoBar, it also serves alcoholic beverages to its customers.

I think that’s all for this week guys. Hope you guys could find time to drop by and taste the different cuisines in Buffet Asia RestoBar at a very reasonable price! You can eat all you want for only Php 399! Or maybe have some alcoholic beverages and listen to their acoustic live band guests every Friday and Saturday. It’s definitely a perfect place to chill with your friends! Until next Saturday! Have a good day!
