One of my weaknesses is definitely good food. I can’t seem to resist any opportunity of eating at a good restaurant & having delicious yummy food. Explains the reason why I gained 5 kilos (11 pounds) in the past few months. No regrets whatsoever though. I do know however that I need to cut down on my pig-out events hehehe.
A few weeks back, Christina & I went to Circles Event Cafe for lunch, which is located at the lobby of Shangrila Hotel Makati. Christina had a free buffet voucher so we only needed to pay for 1 person (Php 1,424.48). Boy, the place was packed. No matter how expensive this is, people still make it a point to go to Circles Event Cafe to dine. I must agree, that with such good food and a pleasing ambiance, I guess dining once in a while here is well worth it.
I really liked how the buffet was done, open theater style. Different stations specializing on a certain cuisine. Circles Buffet has a salad bar, Japanese sushi bar, cold dishes, Asian dishes (dimsum, Mongolian, Indian) & western dishes (pizza, roast beef-YUM!). I love their complete selection of breads too!
Whenever I go to a pricey buffet like Circle Event Cafe, I make it a point to prioritize the more expensive food items, particularly items like roast beef. You can see in the picture below, me enjoying a serving of Roast Beef, it’s really good, however I wouldn’t go for a 2nd serving on that one! I have to watch my cholesterol intake 😛
Another favorite station of mine was the dessert bar! My golly! I just loved it!!! I especially loved the enormous variety of fruits available for us! Wow! I had to go back like 3 times, I couldn’t get enough of it!! 😀
Who would forget the ever-famous chocolate fondue fountain & other desserts available at Circles Buffet. The Tiramisu cups, creme brulee, cakes & the yummy ice cream w/ awesome sidings. The experience was truly heaven, you can check the pictures in my online photo album for Circle Event Cafe.
One thing I also noticed was the display of the different smileys at the place as well as the good selection of wines in one corner. Let me share some information because I did read the posters beside them:
- Emoti Cake – Very cute smiley cakes where you can choose a certain emotion to put in your cake (chocolate or cheese flavored) then provide the message you wanna put in (I miss you, I love you, I’m sorry, congratulations, etc). Pretty cute, a very nice offering by Circles Event Cafe. The cakes are offered in 2 sizes, Petite (14cm) & Regular (19cm). Prices ranging from Php 380 to Php 780.
- Wine Rendezvous – available from 6-11pm. Guests can choose & drink unlimited wines from Argentina, Australia, South Africa & France for just Php 795++. There are a lot of wine drinkers out there, unfortunately, I’m not one of them hehehe 😛
