There are many buffets in hotels and outside restaurant as Filipinos love the dazzling array of choices, seemingly catering to everyone. Marriot Café at the Marriot Manila in Resorts World seeks to one up the competition thru the introduction of its revamped Sunday Brunch containing heavier selections and more gourmet stations.
Start off your meal with some appetizers with an assortment of seafood and fresh shucked oysters.
Salads are aplenty with numerous small plates each containing different salads, or you can opt for some from the Japanese station.
A surprise station was the cocktail station for those who want a little alcohol on a lazy Sunday.
Adjacent to that is the entryway to Cru, the expensive resident steakhouse of Marriot Manila where you can gorge yourself on foie gras, Australian steaks, lapu lapu and calamari. I has a piece of foie gras and it was pan fried just perfectly, still soft inside with a crisp exterior.
Lechon is also available, Filipino and Chinese style, both equally tempting.
Fresh pasta made right on the spot with choices like tortellinis, gnocchis and raviolis.
The main attraction at the Sunday Brunch is definitely the Chocolate Room. A whole room filled with all sorts of chocolate that would make a chocolate lover.
Dark, White and Milk chocolate sitting atop an almost 2 inch thick table top made from pure chocolate. There are also all sorts of pastries and a chocolate fountain with fruits and marshmallows.
Notice the statue covered in chocolate, its really one of the Marriot chefs drenched in chocolate. I was a bit shocked when I saw movement from what I thought was an inanimate object. She sits there for the duration of the buffet with bits of touch up in between.
You might also notice the painting above, made from chocolate also
While we were enjoying the sumptuous offerings, a clown/magician went around the restaurant entertaining the guests like Lauren and Paul.
For dessert I had some Coconut and Red Ruby (White Chocolate Mocha) ice cream. While scanning the chocolate room, we spotted some Chocolate dripped Strawberry’s made to look like tuxedos.
The dazzling amount of quality food including unlimited foie gras and chocolate make this Sunday Brunch buffet a good value at P2,000 net per person.
I would have wanted to see more representation of breakfast items like pancakes and bacon since that’s really my idea of a brunch, the best of breakfast and lunch.
