Never judge a book by its cover. Even if this saying is a cliche,  THE PANTRY in DUSIT THANI MAKATI definitely applies to this.

THE PANTRY is located in the lobby of DUSIT THANI MAKATI. Once you enter, you won't see the quality of the all day buffet just yet. You have to go around all the way to the back to see the delicious dishes the chef has in store for the discerning guests.

Upfront, you are treated to a long line of appetizers. From cold cuts to different cheeses and even salads.

You also get to pick different pasta dishes cooked on the spot and even have a slice or two of different pizzas cooked in their wood fired oven.

What is a buffet without ROASTED PIG or LECHON!? Dusit Thani makes and grills their own lechon so you are assured of their freshness and abundant crispy skin. Every dad would love this offering.

Just beside it, you are greeted by the grilling station. You can requests for different cuts of meat be grilled and cooked to your liking.
The INDIAN SECTION comes next. I didn't know that DUSIT THANI has a dedicated halal kitchen for our brothers and sisters. Their Indian selection is complete and pretty much amazing. Having an in house Indian Chef makes it more natural and authentic.
I can't help but mix it up. The lechon is moist and the Biryani perfect for it.
Opposite this section is the Dimsum and Seafood Counter. Here you get to pick different cuts of seafood to be cooked to your preference.
You can see how fresh the crabs and the oysters are.

And yes they also have shrimps as well.

Personally, I'm great with shrimps and baked oysters but there are more things to go for in THE PANTRY.

That being their dessert station. There are a lot of sweet dishes to choose from.
From small cakes to amazing donuts, you won't go wrong with any.
My top pick though would have to be these strawberries covered with decadent chocolate.

Definitely the perfect way to end the meal. Dusit Thani's THE PANTRY has a lot of dishes to offer and is the go to place for an amazing Indian food section. I was happy with the lechon and also the Indian station. The oysters and crabs and shrimps were perfect as well.

This coming Sunday, June 19 at 11:30 to 2:30 pm, DUSIT THANI is celebrating all the fathers in town. Special activities and prizes await all the men in our lives. They would be able to take part and test drive Mini Coopers. Aside from this, overnight accommodations with a Mini Cooper for use, and even spa treatments or other vouchers and merchandise from different sponsors. For the crossover buffet at UMU and The PANTRY, the price is at 2,950Php nett including alcoholic beverages or at 2,500Php nett excluding wines and other alcoholic beverages.
