The Round Table…

For people who have much bigger  appetite than others, buffet dinning is a food trip that is certainly a value for money. When I was much younger, about 25 years ago, with the waist line of 27 inches, I had my share of this gastronomical eat-all-you-can food porn with friends. Back then, at 21, metabolism was high and never did bothered by the thoughts of high cholesterol and blood pressure.

Menu for the week...Please be guided accordingly...
 Now at mid 40’s, with a blood sugar that needs to be checked from time to time, the buffet table became less appealing to me, most especially if the selection is so wide and the attempt to cover them all with just even bite sizes can already put my guts in trouble. As much as I want to eat more to get the value of the buffet price, my body can only load as much. 

Super-select menu for the day...
The Round Table is a different kind of food station. With a sitting capacity of only 25 guests at a time, The Round Table is more of a “tasting room” than a full-scale restaurant. So, why is it called The Round Table? It is because they have a big round table that serves as a buffet serving station where they have themed menu for the day in small batches to keep the freshness or warmness of the food. 
Paella Roll Maki...
Our Wednesday visit covers their Japanese dishes and it is called “Ninja Wednesday”. The Ninja Wednesday is not like the typical Japanese favorites. It is a fusion of Japanese and Filipino delights bringing the best of two distinct cultures. Among the Japanese dishes they serve, the most popular in the buffet table is the Paella Rolls. This is a Maki roll but instead of Japanese rice, they put Paella. 

Tapa Maki...
The Maki Tapa is also a fusion dish of the Japanese Maki and the Pinoy style tapa in the middle of the roll. The tempura is also unique because they use fish instead of shrimp. A better alternative if good quality shrimps are hard to find during off seasons. Again, It’s not the usual Japanese but definitely exceptional and flavorful too. 

Chicken Teryaki...
The chicken Teriaki is another reason to have a second serving. The sauce is not too sweet and too salty which makes it just right. If you think you’re having too much fish and chicken, on one side of the buffet table is a slab of roast beef. The meat is so tender and the flavor is natural and raw. No need to put any marinate, so you can experience of the real taste of the beef.

So, those are the Wednesday selection of The Round Table. On other days, guests can experience the flavor of Italian cuisine on Tuesdays and on Thursdays, they buffet table celebrates all Filipino cuisine. Mondays are set for guests who wish to reserve the whole area and can customize set of dishes good for 25 people.
