Lunch at La Fiesta: A Taste of Filipino

This year, our family has been eating a lot of buffet meals so it is really hard to stick with our diet. We had a lot of family celebrations, family outings and travel trips so buffet meals is part of it. I won’t deny that I gained a lot of pounds this summer so I hope back to regular programming na when classes resume. 

Last weekend, we had lunch at La Fiesta at SM by the Bay. My aunt-in-law was back in the Philippines for a short vacation, that is the reason why we had a spontaneous family outing at Woodside Farm and Waterpark. Last Saturday, we picked them up so we can drop them at the airport but we’re too early for the check-in time so my husband decided to kill our time at MOA. 

The best way to kill our time is to eat. We don’t have reservation so I checked three buffet restaurant and we ended up at La Fiesta. Pangalawa kasi ko sa waiting list so mas malapit na. The staff advised me that buffet spread is up to 2PM only and we agreed. After several minutes of waiting, the staff ushered us to our table and it was 1:15PM already so we only have 45 minutes to get our food. This was my first time na late kami buffet, lagi kami early bird so we can take our time and we can enjoy the buffet.

Well, it’s been four years since the last time we dined here at La Fiesta. There are few changes na rin, I saw Japanese station so they are serving other cuisines na rin and the buffet spread are not limited to Filipino Cuisine. Since I only have limited time, I only took few photos and hindi na food kasi marami na bawas yung serving plate. Hehehe!

I was happy that there is Lechon de Leche, kahit ulo part na lang naabutan ko. This is our favorite in their buffet spread and we’re glad na same pa rin ng taste. So sad lang kasi wala papaitan, sisig and laing during our visit. Wala na rin si Manong Sorbetero for dirty ice cream. 

They still have acoustic band and local folk dances so timing rin for our balikbayan visitor. We took advantage the birthday promo (3+1) since it is also my husband’s birthday month. I don’t know if nasulit namin yung buffet rate since we only have limited time but it was a good experience for my AIL’s family.

  1. I love buffets! Di pa namin na-try dito pero mukhang okay, with autentic and fusion Filipino food. May entertainment pang kasama.

  2. This is the best buffet restaurant for me so far. Grabe! Talagang uulit at uulit ka e. Super sarap!!!

  3. Hi! When ba mas ok food dito? Lunch or dinner? One day lang kasi ako sa Manila soon. Want to know kung ano better sana. ��

    1. Hi Kaye! I think mas okay ang buffet spread pag dinner. Konti na lang kasi naabutan namin sa lunch kasi late na rin kami nagstart.
