Acaci Cafe is the all day restaurant at Acacia Hotel Manila in Alabang. The restaurant serves buffet meal for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also have ala carte for those who don’t care for buffets.
We had dinner at Acaci for our first meal at the hotel. We were there a bit early since we wanted to check out the Saint James Bazaar after. The high ceilings and different upholstered chairs were really to my liking.
Cheese or crustacean, for me the crustaceans always have a leg up (literally).
They had a nice Caesar salad area where they make it upon request. Its very rare to see this in a buffet since it takes a bit of time to make.
Fancy a bit of barbecue, they have a selection of meat and seafood cooked upon selection.
Irene was browsing around the buffet selection when she came upon a leg wrapped in plastic. She had an inkling it was Proscuittto/Parma Ham and an inquiry confirmed it. She immediately asked them to slice some for her. She polished off two plates all by herself with a matching smile.
I enjoyed this little salmon and bread roll concoction, no inkling whats it called but it was delicious.
Always leave room for dessert. Who can resist not getting a piece of that beautiful marshmallow studded ball.
The breakfast buffet is actually my favorite, who doesn’t love the smell of fresh bread, sizzling eggs and crispy bacon to open up your drowsy senses.
Assortment of cereals, dried fruits and nuts.
Cups of ready to eat plain and fruit flavored yogurts. (First time I’ve seen the Milkana brand though)
Eggs in a pretty holder.
Bacon and fresh bread.
Salad, cold cuts and juices
Taho (Soybean Curd), a nice little surprise.
Irresistible colored kakanin (rice cakes)
The selection at Acaci might not rival the more plentiful variants at other hotels but what they have is quite good quality-wise. There are also surprises mixed in like the Parma ham, Caesar Salad and Taho offerings. Service for both times we were there was excellent, staff was attentive despite the crowd during breakfast.
