Birthday Celebration at Marriott Cafe: A Different Kind of Buffet

I thought my Birthday Getaway at The Henry Resort Taramindu Laiya was already my birthday celebration because my birthday fell on weekday and the weather was so unpredictable so ang hirap magplan. But few days before my birthday, I was still busy searching and planning for my celebration, hindi pa ko naggive up kasi gusto ko talaga magfood trip sa birthday ko. Hehehe! 

On our way home from Purple Oven-Nuvali, I was still thinking about where to eat on my birthday, my husband suggested na ituloy na namin yung Marriott Cafe but I told him, coding ka di ba? But he said, my window hours naman so we can eat ng lunch. I felt happy because finally, the search is over. My husband immediately called Marriott Cafe to reserve and he filed for vacation leave. When we reached our house, I immediately downloaded the menu so I can prepare my stomach. 

The following day, hindi kami gaano nagpakabusog sa breakfast para sulit ang buffet namin. We waited for my son’s online classes to finish and off we went to Marriott Hotel. The buffet starts at 12NN and upon arrival, the staff ushered us to our table but we requested a different table, yung wall ang likod because my son has afternoon online classes. 

Marriott Cafe “A Different Kind of Buffet” 

I’ve tried different hotel buffets in the past but this was the first time that I downloaded the menu. I love the menu because it helped me in planning what to eat, unlike before na saka pa lang ako mag-iisip ng kakainin kapag inikot ko na yung buffet spread. 

There are prepared meals but what I like in Marriott Cafe is the Live Station or "Paluto" Cooked to your Likings Station. So you can order Singaporean Chili, grilled, steamed, sweet and sour and fried meat or seafood that you like. 

Other stations are Sashimi Station, Teppanyaki Station, Tempura Station, Dimsum Station, Noodle, Bar, Dessert Station, and more. Their buffet spread is not grand compared to other hotels but still, hindi ko din nakainan lahat ng stations. I focused on Live Station, Chef’s Grill Special, Teppanyaki, and Dessert Station. 

Favorite namin sa dessert station is the Gelato, one scoop is PHP155 but scoop all you want for buffet diners. I was not able to take a lot of photos because I was also busy eating. The photos below are from my husband's experience, compared to our experience, mas marami yung seafood nung kumain siya. 

And because of my husband Marriot Cafe’s experience, he said we will eat here on his birthday, but it didn’t happen because Sheraton Manila upgraded us to Sheraton Club when we had our staycation so may libre na kami na buffet. 

After few months of waiting, I finally crossed this out on my bucket list. Since the rate is not cheap, we literally took our time eating and drinking, so we were there for almost three hours. Marriott Cafe also gave me a Complimentary Birthday Cake, but just like our Yurakuen experience, busog talaga kami so take-out namin yung free cake.
