Quezon Buffet – Best Sisig in the Metro

Traveling at my own cost really took a toll on my personal savings (or what’s left of it). Laughs – not really. Reviewing a newly opened buffet restaurant was definitely a breath of fresh air. Since it’s free, that’s where I gotta be.

When you had something for free and it was bad – you don’t have a say. On the contrary, if it was good and free at the same time – it’s like winning a raffle. In my case, a lottery.

I arrived at Fisher Mall at half past four – way late from the 2:00 pm call time. Although, I came all the way from Cavite, I thought to myself, well if the event’s done, I deserved it cos of my ever reliable time management. Lo and behold, it’s as if the event waited for me. The counters were all served with sumptuous offerings. Other dishes being replenished as I salivate at the side.

What Quezon Has To Offer

Quezon buffet boasts its decadence array of strong Filipino – Spanish tie through its immaculate dishes of gastronomic proportions.

I couldn’t even put to words my exact thoughts when I had my first sisig bite. It just exploded in my palate. Their sisig dish comes in three’s: Bangus, Chicken and Pork. I know sisig isn’t for everyone – but please take my word for it to drop by whenever you’re around the area.

I’m not skipping the best part (for most foodies). Not far where I left my heart lay another heart wrenching dish – lechon! Yes I’m not that of a huge fan; but, oh boy, the crispness, texture and flavor can be compared to the infamous Cebu’s Zubuchon. And they serve it at a buffet – how dope! Lechon Chili Belly all-you-want definitely sounds my cup of tea.

I know, I know these dishes must be paired with rice, right? Quezon buffet didn’t disappoint offering yet another scene stealer – Paella. Filled with mussels, pork bits and veggies. Kanin pa lang ulam na!

Other food choices include Beef Kare Kare, Sinigang sa Pula, Dinakdakan, Callos, Bulalo Steak among others. I had a few portions and came back to refill my plate. Nothing is going wrong for Chef Kalel and his team!

How rude of me not to talk about desserts! Their leche flan (crème caramel) and brazo de mercedes were to die for! Not literally of diabetes cos they have a balanced level of sucrose – not too sweet making me feel less guilty I gave in to temptation. Make your own halo-halo, turon with langka, sticky pudding with mango purée, palitaw and other kakanins completed the line up of the desserts. Very Pinoy, indeed.

Ambiance & Staff

Faint lighting from their posh chandeliers wrapped around the banquet making the ambiance very cozy and relaxing. The restaurant can host around 200 people – perfect for all occasions. Although the opening was swamped (not seen in the photo) and looked undermanned, the staff were accommodating and more than willing to satisfy everyone’s needs. They sure replenish the food fast – perhaps because it’s the opening with media and celebrities gracing the event.

I do wish they continue this going forward – cos it makes or break a buffet restaurant.

Price

Absolutely affordable. Treat your family, friends, colleagues here. Quezon buffet will do the rest.

So it is now safe to say I am a travel foodie. Thank you thewanderjunkie for accompanying me gatecrash this event.

We sure had a lot of laughs and our stomachs full.

Thanks again Quezon buffet for showcasing and being the forefront in promoting our rich Filipino cuisine.

10 Selfish Reasons Why I Won’t Take You To The Movies

movies 2

  1. Movies last for about 2 hours tops and I can’t risk it having you get bored and cease interest in the film; or worst, in me.
  2. I don’t want you to see what others are seeing – I just want you to look at me.
  3. I won’t allow you be caged in the darkness; the theater that is, the whole world needs to witness how special you are.
  4. I’d rather spend the two hours arguing, get lost conversing about the gravitational pull, laws of attraction, and how the universe conspires than succumbing to silence with our eyes glued to the big screen and losing you in the process.
  5. I can’t allow you be seated with someone else and have the risk of your elbows touching, eyes meeting & popcorn sharing.
  6. Movies end period. I don’t want us to.
  7. Your precious name won’t be in the end credits – don’t worry this post is just for you.
  8. I know all about your inviting laughs, heavy hands and how shallow your tears are – we don’t need to see a movie for me to witness that in just one seating. We can do that everyday.
  9. I don’t want you to relate yourself in a particular character in the movie – I just want us to be us, you to be you and me to be me.
  10. Why take you to the movies? We are already in a romantic comedy flick starring you and me.

So here are the questions from Vinne:

I wanted to tell the world how beautiful the Philippines is. Well that’s the initial plan, now I’m looking forward to my first overseas trip and can’t wait to share it with everyone!

What sort of activity you really wanted to do but too afraid to do it?

Drag racing & motocross – I’m an adrenaline junkie but these two extreme sports require training and practice which I can’t commit at the moment. On a personal note, I would love to let go of all my insecurities and don’t give the world a f*ck – easier written than done.

What is your favorite colour and why?

Red. Blame it to red mighty morphin power ranger that made my childhood interesting. Aside from the fact that it’s visually striking, it compliments my fair skin. Haha

Do you believe in horoscope?

Yes to some extent. I’m a Scorpio and if the reading is favorable to me, I will definitely believe it. If not, then I’ll just shake it off. Horoscope readings are there as a guide, you may or may not accept it – depending on your preference.

Are you left handed or right handed?

Right handed.

What do you like most, reading or writing?

Hmm, this is a hard one. Depends on my mood I guess. I love both. I read to enhance my writing.

Do you have any New Year resolution? Please explain.

No. I have never succeeded in fulfilling my New Year’s resolution so instead I just live in the moment.

What is your favorite season?

Definitely summer! I love to soak my skin in the sun and have that shiny tan (laughs)!

If you have a million dollar what will you do to spend it and why?

Invest half of it on our soon-to-be family business. Learn to invest people – especially the young ones. Don’t just save up, invest too. The other half – I’ll take my family to a journey of a lifetime.

Taxi ride on a busy/traffic-jammed road or drive your own car?

I could’ve easily picked take a train; but since I’m limited to these two – I would drive my own car and belt out Ed Sheeran songs to avoid boredom.

What do you believe in?

I believe that once you put your mind to it – there’s nothing you can’t do.

1989 baby x I sing and write songs x frustrated dancer x US Series addict x learning to quit smoking x into extreme adventures x haven’t been outside Philippines x starting to work out x huge Ed Sheeran fan x never been to any international concert act ever x sarcastic AF and I just like to have fun
