Breakfast Buffet at Spiral Restaurant

For the past few years, Sofitel Philippine Plaza is on my bucket list because I wanted to eat at Spiral but we all know that their buffet rate is not cheap. We are not rich so I won’t spend thousand of pesos just for one meal. It is true that our dreams can come true if we just believe and if we find ways to make it happen.

Two months ago, we celebrated our wedding anniversary at Sofitel Philippine Plaza and part of the room package is complimentary buffet breakfast for 3 (2 adults and 1 kid) so I was so happy that I finally cross this out on my bucket list. At last, we can experience dining at the famous Spiral Restaurant. When we arrived at the hotel, my son immediately noticed the staircase, the spiral staircase is indeed an eye-catcher.

Spiral is expensive because they offer an extensive buffet, they have 21 Dining Ateliers so there are foods for everyone. You can try different cuisines without leaving your home country. Yes, there are food stations from around the world, your palate will taste a variety of international dishes

Salad and Appetizer, L’Ecaillier, Sushi Sashimi, L’Epicerie, Hot Japanese, French Stove, Rotisserie, Wood Fried Oven, Churrasco, North Indian, Asian Noodles, Peking Duck Oven, Steam Basket, Chinese Wok, Filipino, Thai, Korean, La Boulangerie, La Patisserie, Chocolaterie, and Creamery.

When we entered the restaurant, the staff immediately ushered us to our table and ask for our drinks. I did not waste time and I checked the different ateliers, I was really amazed by their offerings because it is very different from other hotels that I’ve tried. I thought madami na yung sa Café Ilang Ilang of The Manila Hotel, pero mas madami dito.

The food selections are overwhelming, mabubusog ka na agad sa pagtingin pa lang. In my previous staycations, I always see an egg station but here in Spiral, you can order egg at different ateliers. They have their own specialty so it depends on your preference. Graben noh, sa itlog pa lang ang dami ng recipe.

When it comes to food, they have a lot of choices, like sa juice, bread, spread, pancake toppings, parfait, sausage, cheese, cold cuts, ice cream, and ice cream toppings. Ikaw na ang mahihirapan mamili sa dami ng choices. They have cold cuts and cheese room too, I’m not even familiar with the other cheese so I did not try it.

What I like here, even there are a lot of diners, you won’t feel that it is crowded because there is enough space for you to walk and even bike. Bike, because someone is riding a bike around the restaurant, she gives out the newspaper. Nandiyan din si Manong Magtataho who roams around. There are also entertainers for kids, I saw a guy making balloons for kids.

The service is good, the wait staffs are approachable, helpful and fast in service. Sa sobrang bilis nila, even I'm not yet finished with my food, nawawala na plate sa table. Kinukuha na nila, feeling siguro nila tapos ka na kasi tumayo ka na. It happened to me when I accompanied my son to get his food and when he went to the comfort room. When we get back, wala na yung kinakain ko. Hehehe! The staff also gave us a detox juice. Wow, pambawi sa dami ng kinain.

Start your day right! It was our wedding anniversary and we just had a sumptuous breakfast at Spiral. Even I was limiting my carbs and sweet intakes, I have to put it off para masulit ko ang buffet experience ko.

  1. Happy Anniversary to you and your spouse mommy.

    We also had our staycation before at Sofitel, super sulit ng Free Breakfast Buffet so many food choices and superb service sila :)

  2. Happy anniversary sa inyo! Kung pricey man siya, definitely sulit naman. I will ask hubby if we could also celebrate our anniv here hehehe.

    1. Thanks! Go, okay magcelebrate ng occasions sa Sofitel.

  3. Belated happy anniversary! Sa buffet breakfast pa lang happy na ng celebration. :) Would love to try the buffet at Spiral too but hubby has sworn off buffets na. Hindi na daw kasi namin nasusulit coz nabubusog kami agad. So what more pa dito? Haha!

    1. Thanks! Same here, mabilis din kami mabusog so yung mahal na lang pinipili namin kainin. hehehe!

  4. The only two times I've eaten at Sofitel was on invitation on Christmas seasons. But since madaming tao and we were with a bunch of people, too, di ko maenjoy mashado. May program kasi hahaha. I want to be able to go there with just my husband and enjoy the place with him.

    Happy Anniversary to the two of you! Anniversaries are worth spending on.

    1. Thanks! Pansin ko nga na ang dami tao kahit ang aga namin magbreakfast.

  5. Happy Anniversary to you both! More happy memories to come. ♥
    Naku, magkano kaya ang mahal na 'to. haha. Bakit parang mas inaalala ko kung paano pag di naubos food? haha. Sayang sila pag napanis. lol.

    1. Thanks! For breakfast buffet, it is almost P2000 per head yata.

  6. Belated happy anniversary for the both of you! Indeed, you had a fabulous celebration and this Hotel look so great and good for celebrations. Lalo na ang mga food nakakatakam tapos ang ganda pa ng ambiance.

    1. Thanks! Yes, nakakabusog na nga kahit tingnan mo lang yung madaming food. hehehe!
