Right after holy week, my family and I visited VIKINGS: SM MARIKINA. We have been to this VIKINGS branch a lot of times before so I am quite relaxed and at eased when I go here. I also like that the buffet spread is all on one long side. So, I won't be confused.

I always liked VIKINGS as it offers buffet that is at par with some hotels and even perfect as it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Furthermore, they are always offering promotions for birthday celebrant and even ofw and now GRADUATES. Everything from appetizers to mains and dessert and even drinks are part of the buffet so it is worth every penny.

That time around, I focused on the sushis and rolls. Being a Japanese food lover, I can't go on a buffet without them.

Knowing the dining crowd, VIKINGS sought to it to make different kinds of rolls.
One of them that is sort of a fusion is the SISIG Roll. A little zesty but is delicious and has that bite.
Aside from the rolls, VIKINGS SM MARIKINA also has a long table for appetizers and different bread.
Cheese choices were abundant
and different hors d'oeuvres were there.
Other stations that are also note worthy are the shabu-shabu which is cooked right on your table top.
and carving station like steak, turkey, prime ribs and crackling belly.
and the list goes on and on. From Chinese, American, Filipino and Italian and even a grill station. Everything that you would want in a buffet is already there.
I enjoyed this coconut mouse chocolate cake. It wasn't too sweet but just right.
Oysters were also a hit. Baked with cheese and a little burnt on the side. This is a crowd favorite.
It was a pleasant lunch and I am please to know that they have a new promotion for new graduates.
