Spectrum Buffet at Fairmont Makati ♥ ♥ ♥

I am not really big on buffets.

I mean I am really big, yes, but I'm not big on big buffets.

I find the one at the new Fairmont Makati just about right. Not too big that it overwhelms me, but not too limited that it leaves me on the floor, throwing a tantrum. (I'm known to do that when hungry, yesssss.)

The spread at Spectrum is well thought of, with great focus on my four favorite stations at any buffet - sushi and sashimi, prime rib, pizzas (my choice of carbs), and desserts.

Sushi Station 
They have everything you can ever think of... tempura roll, salmon cream cheese roll, spicy tuna roll,
lechon kawali roll, (insert any food here) roll. Whatever you want, they can "roll" it for you.
My favorite is the crunchy salmon skin roll.

I also spotted peking duck sushi. OMG!

Roast. Beef.
Enough said.

Pizza Station
You can order the delicious thin crust pizzas fresh by the slice. If you're feeling creative, you have
the freedom to choose your own toppings, too. I love mine with heaps of prosciutto and a whole
garden of arugula.

And of course, the most important station for me, The Dessert Station

 I promise you will be awed



Probably the most unique (and therefore, the most photographed) station is where the bees are.

Honey Station

Yes, they're real and they're working hard to give you honey. I love honey!

Of course, they also have salads, Chinese roasts, dim sum, noodles, pasta, Indian, seafoods, Filipino, etc. etc. etc. You have to come to experience it all. (Because I am not taking any more photos. I am gonna eat already!!!)
