I could never be the most happiest food lover at 12AM a couple of days ago when my friends and I decided to wait for Somethin’ Fishy’s Midnight to Morning Buffet from 12 midnight to 10am. At the price of 199php for an Eat-All-You-Can affair now it is definitely a steal!
We arrived there at around 11:30 and there were people already seated inside the premises. The area was spacious and the ceilings were high but the rows of long tables wasn’t too hard to miss. There were some that have already been reserved. I recommend you do that if you don’t want to have a challenging time looking for seating. The ambience was nice with theirSome hearty conversations and several minutes pass by and they ring on the buffet bells and a crowd of hungry eaters arise.
All the kerfuffle made us hungry like ravaging lions from a month long starvation period! Everybody wanted a piece of this and a scoop of that. Empty trays were bussed and refilled. We were caught up in the rampage. A good tip to keep in mind is to always look behind before taking a step. You might never know there would be someone or something you could bump into while in a frenzied state.
I took a little bit of this and that and proceeded to what I thought I would be dining peacefully with a glass of margarita at the side. Nevertheless, hunger overpowered us and we devoured what was on our plate and took off for another round of food.
There was a lot to choose from since they served over 40 types to choose from. The table started with different breads and spreads which moved on to the meats ranging from beaf, chicken and ham!
The salad table was abundant with….greens of course! and dressings. They also had the pancakes, waffles and french toast which I drizzled with chocolate syrup and sprinkled some chocolate chips and mini marshmallows. A heavenly treat.
There was something about the margarita mountain that made it a game to drink. Everytime I sipped, it fills itself to the rim. You really had to drink it at a fast pace or it might flood your table silently! It costs 50php only.
I wasn’t able to take photos since the crowd of people didn’t even up until we left the place! It was pretty tricky holding a camera steady with people pushing at each other and grabbing food off the trays.
