Merienda Buffet

HOPPING ON WITH KANGAROO JACK’S MERIENDA BUFFET!


I, along with my co-admins have been a fan of this Kangaroo Jack’s Merienda Buffet since the very first time we’ve dined there. We can’t even count how many times we’ve dine on the restaurant. Given this initial review of mine, it’s pretty obvious that we really enjoyed every dining experience we had at Kangaroo Jack! Now, I’ll share to you guys our latest experience at Kangaroo Jack and I’ll tell you why we kept on going back to this lovely restaurant!

2

It was Thursday (March 19, 2015) when I asked Admin Lavern if he wants to eat with me (again) at Kangaroo Jack at SM North EDSA (I know he won’t refuse, given the fact that he really loves Kangaroo Jack’s Merienda Buffet to death) and there without anything else he said yes. So we see each other quite a bit late (4:00 PM) and Kangaroo Jack’s Meienda Buffet is only up to 5:30 PM. As a consequence, most of the food on the buffet table are already half empty and the staff would not refill it anymore.

3

Kangaroo Jack’s Merienda Buffet has two parts: one that contains all the main courses;

5

… and one that contains all the appetizers and desserts (What a coincidence, the lady with the stripe shirt was captured on both photos! Haha!).

6

So now, here’s what the main course section contains. First, we have Pesto, Tono Rosso, and Tuna Olio Pasta. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to taste any of these. Besides, I’m not a fan of Pesto Pasta. Haha! Sorry for the messy presentations of the food. Remember we got to the place 1 hour before the closing of the Merienda Buffet. Also, most of the presentations of the food look messy. So please, understand. Lol!

7

Mac & Cheese, Sliced Pork with Liver Sauce, and Pork Scallopinne. I liked the Sliced Pork with Liver Sauce, it was good and tasty!

8

Kare-Kare, Chicken Ala King, Chicken Mexicana, fried Chicken, and Fish Fingers. The Chicken Ala King and Chicken Mexicana tastes great! The Fried Chicken got bigger compared to last time we dine there, probably because of the price raise they had; from Php 220.00 to Php 275.00. I really love their Fried Chicken and Fish Fingers!

9

Green Rice, Jave Rice, and Plain Rice. All was great, but I still prefer the Plain Rice over the Green and Java Rice because I find those two a bit greasy.

12

Banana Con Yelo. This one’s good too! I suggest that you put just a small amount of ice in order to keep the dessert sweet even after a few minutes.

13

Maja Con Blanca, Coffee Jelly, Banana Fritters, and Churros. I was only able to taste the Maja Con Blanca and the Coffee Jelly. Both Tastes great! I’m sorry for the empty plates and messy appearance.

14

Pizzas and Tacos. I am a big fan of their Pizza! I don’t mind if it’s thin as paper, I still love it, because I really like Pizzas with so many cheese.

15

Nachos and Salad Bar. I wasn’t able to try any of these, although I’m a big fan of Nachos.

16

Cream of Mushroom Soup and Garlic Bread. I was not able to get some of these, but Admin Lavern said that the Cream of Mushroom Soup tastes like it has Bagoong (Fish Paste) as an ingredient. Haha! I tasted it and I agree with him. I don’t know what happened because their Cream of Mushroom tastes like an ordinary one verytime we dine there. Maybe it just happened that the way they cooked the soup is different on that day.

17

The Drinks Station. The Php 275.00 you pay is already inclusive of drinks (Red Iced Tea). I really like the taste of their Red Iced Tea! It’s refreshing!

19

I and admin Lavern really had a good time dining at Kangaroo Jack! Our Php 275.00 is really worth it! There are so many food choices on their buffet table and all really tastes great! We definitely will never get tired of dining at Kangaroo Jack! I suggest that if you want to dine at Kangaroo Jack’s Merienda Buffet, you try to go at least earlier than 3:30 for you to be able to enjoy your experience at the restaurant. Kangaroo Jack’s Merienda Buffet is available every Monday – Saturday from 11:00 AM to 5:30 PM.

To top it all, I give Kangaroo jack’s Merienda buffet a score of 9/10! It totally worth your money!

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.

2

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.

3

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.

4

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!
