I still have hangover from Fhabs’ 24th birthday celebration as we ticked off another item on our bucket list: Dining at Vikings Luxury Buffet Restaurant. The whole preparation went smooth except on traffic and bus ride nightmare in Manila. Nevertheless, 11th day of October turned out to be one of Fhabs’ best birthdays so far.
Why Vikings Mall of Asia? We chose this branch based from recommendations of friends and simply because it’s situated along the seaside. The sight of the sea is always a good idea for us. The online reservation process was easy and uncomplicated thus, going to the venue itself became more convincing.We’re scheduled for lunch (11AM-2:30PM) and should be present on or before 11:30AM (holding time) or else the reservation may be forfeited to make room for walk-ins and waiting list. We didn’t bring Rain (car) and opted to commute to MOA which caused a bit of trouble. Aside from heavy traffic we had to endure, Vikings was quite a walk from bus drop off point. Thank God, we made it at exactly 11:30AM!We marvelled at world-class beauty of Vikings and almost cried (not because of hunger) feasting our eyes on lavish architecture, mouth-watering dishes waiting for us to devour them and grandiose sight that totally overwhelmed our senses. As per the website, there are about 400 featured dishes (European, Asian and American). WOW! We’re like happy kids in a candy store trying some of the delectable eats – it’s impossible to try them all. I had five rounds of dessert though. Haha! Let the photos speak on behalf of our happy tummies.
Vikings experience won’t be complete without customized cakes for celebrators, birthday song on the background and dance number from the staff. I don’t know if we’re just appreciative but this gesture made us so joyful especially when I saw the sparkle on Fhabs’ eyes and his wide grin. MAGICAL. No wonder why many love to celebrate birthdays in this place. Vikings knows how to make everyone feel special.The best part didn’t stop there when the bill came. LOL. Since we availed of birthday promo, we only paid for my slot (P774 – 5% service charge included) and Fhabs ate for FREE. Imagine dining in class and eating bulk of heavenly flavors and just paying an average amount! Now you can agree with me why this was the best part. From Viking’s wide selection of international cuisines to over the top service and special birthday treat, this is our greatest food adventure yet!
Here’s how to make the most of your Vikings experience.
Make a RESERVATION.
Come on or before holding time. OR ELSE.
As Shakira’s song goes, TRY EVERYTHING. Again, EVERYTHING.
