Circles at Makati Shangri-la ♥ ♥


I am proud to say, after years and years of training, I have mastered the art of buffet eating. I know what I want from each restaurant and I do not get side-tracked. I get only my favorite things and maybe a few new items just to try.

In Heat, it’s sashimi, salad and raisin walnut bread (sorry, there’s not much to eat here). In Marriott Café, it’s sashimi, salad and tres leches. In Spiral, it’s sashimi, foie gras, cheese with truffle honey and chocolate chip cookies. In Circles, it’s sashimi, sushi rolls, prime rib and flourless chocolate cake.

I don’t really fancy buffets. I‘d rather sit down, be served than stand in line for food. I’d rather have one or two really good dishes than a roomful of mediocre ones. And really, it’s just such a pain for a food blogger, going around the place taking photos of the whole spread. And lastly but most importantly, it spells trouble for people with no discipline and self-control. Yup, that’s me. BIG trouble.

But if I have to go, I’d go to Circles or Spiral. Two of the best in Manila methinks.
