so since June of last year everytime i'm here, i only think of one guy...and concentrate on that.
for the several quarters that i've been with account i'm with, i've experienced a nearly quarterly treat of a long lunch with our client. and since the crowne plaza is the nearest, it seems like a no brainer to have our lunch here
moving along the buffet table, we have the assortment of food, from your salads,
of different kinds and from different countries,
and then we move on to main courses, the pic below being the offer from 'Mongolia'
and then there's my fave, nope i'm not exaggerating or joking, Indian food.
and the chips and rotti. me loves the rotti and the spicy chips [whose name escapes me now.
wehehehe more spices.
and we move on to their Italian buffet.
if move on to the last part of the buffet line you get to the part of the chopped lamb and steak.
The following pictures are what my office mate and I had.
the shrimp salad and the ceasar's salad was very light but the dressing for the ceasar's salad was on the sweet side, which i found odd.
Ria's plate for her Indian food, it's spicy chicken, both were chicken just had different kinds of spices on them.
my rotti....mmmm, i could eat the rotti all day. the sweetness is a good balance with the spice of the chicken.
Ria's steak with mashed potato with pesto. the mashed potato was fluffy and i like that there's pesto on it. she had hers done well done. she was pretty pleased with it especially with the gravy on top.
squeeee, pasta bolognese, with extra topping of parmesan cheese. i didn't use to eat their pasta just because i can get good spaghetti at home or any other place so i always went for the indian food. but this day was different. i tried it out and it was the only one i wanted to try just because i'm not into white sauce and i actually know how putanesca was invented way way back in italy so meh, bolognese, woooh! this thing is heavy! i had only put in a small amount of pasta on my dish but when it came back, it was like triple (S) the amount! and the beef was very gratifying not to mention the sauce was a nice combination of tangy sour sweet ♥
the cake, looks yummy? it's hazel nut chocolate.
a chocolate fountain, behind it are different fruits and marshmallows for you to have something to bathe the chocolate on.
the desserts. actually, the 3 of us had a consensus. only the walnut cake, that thing with the olive looking star decorated chocolate ball, was the most delectable. everything else was either so so or just plain bad...and when i say bad, i mean sour and ewwww, wtf happened there bad. and that would be the hazel nut cake. that i have a picture of above the chocolate fountain.
as we left the place, i saw that they have a clay oven and these lovelies.
no one stopped me from taking pictures of their layout and place, [i was asked to stop taking pictures at Sofitel].
The coffee takes awhile to get to you. the cream that you ask for takes even longer. i don't know what beans country style uses for their coffee, but i still prefer country style's brew over the brew served at Seven corners.
it's a hotel restaurant, so kpop stars eat here when they're staying at the crowne, senators eat here, too. so expect the ambiance to be cozy but on the slightly posh side. the cost per head for the buffet is about 1k++. not bad considering it's the Crowne Plaza.
leader, kelan ang balik mo?
