Vikings Buffet at MOA ♥ ♥


viking buffet MOA


I’ve been hearing about this new eating galore place in the MOA complex. Naturally, our gluttonic family just has to try it out.


viking buffet MOAWe come without reservations so there’s a 30-minute wait, which I use wisely to check out the spread, take some photos, and plan my strategic attack.

Antipasti Station


Indian Station


Japanese Station with sashimi, sushi, colorful and creative rolls


Dimsum Station


Chinese Station


Fish Balls and Tofu Station


Hot Pot Station


Grilling Station


Carving Station


Pizza Station – my favorite!


And look what I spy a few plates down – truffle paste!


Dessert Station


More desserts and frozen yogurt station


Fruits and fruit juices


The restaurant can comfortably seat 600 people


There’s an outdoor dining area, too, for those who prefer fresh air and views of evening sky


No wonder many special occasions are celebrated here.
The cheerful Viking staff belting out a birthday song.


Chinese family celebrating a birthday, too. Obvious ba? Smile with tongue out


I love that Vikings puts customer convenience first. They’ve installed washing stations around the restaurant so diners don’t need to go all the way to the restrooms to clean
their hands before attacking the buffet again. Absolutely no momentum lost.


The restrooms are also very kid-friendly


Okay, now onto to the most important part of the night – MY PLATES. Hehehe! Smile


After seeing this warning sign, I make sure to get only what I can finish.


So this is me, without takaw-tingin:

Salmon sashimi, assorted rolls, octopus salad, chicken feet


More salmon sashimi


Are these scallops or some other type of mollusk? Whatever they are, they are good.


Pizza, salmon carpaccio, paella negra, oxtail stew, Hungarian sausage, truffle paste


I smother truffle paste on my perfectly thin crust pizza. This is my favorite of the night.


Baked oysters – lack flavor


Fried radish cake – delicious!


Taro bun – just because I love purple


Mocha roll, chocolate roll, ube flan, ube ice cream with oreo crumbs, chocolate chip cookie with not a single chocolate chip. The desserts are rather ordinary. Except for the ube ice cream from Big Scoop, everything else is quite forgettable.


                 Fruits and sago – major fail                                          Frozen yogurt – too sweet


Special drink of the day, Choco Banana Peanut Butter Shake.
It’s so good I finish 2 glasses!


I am proud to announce that we didn’t have to pay even 1 centavo for leftover food.

I love restaurants that implement leftover charges.

Gives me great excuse to eat like a Viking. Open-mouthed smile


Thank you, Uncle Rolly and Auntie Sabeth!
