Surfing at Marriott Cafe’s Ocean’s Surf Buffet

18 Jan

I haven’t fully recovered from the alarming weight gain from the holidays. Because of that, I’ve made a solemn vow to myself that I will take my 30-pound weight loss challenge seriously.

Until the day  I received this invite from the mail:

I rarely get invites from buffet dinners and the chance to experience this first hand in the Marriott is just an honor. So there I was in the office trying to starve myself to compensate the “pigging out” that will happen that Thursday night. Well, guess what it was all worth it! Here are some photos of the entrées from Cathie:


Any seafood craving can be sustained from the array of different entrées from the sea that welcomed us. From rock lobsters, seafood salads to sushi and sashimi, I really had a hard time selecting which entree to eat. I ended up getting almost all the offerings from the Japanese section:


The chef was able to capture the right taste of a good sushi! I was particularly in love with the ebi sushi. The plating was cute and as I bit into the prawn, the texture was soft and doesn’t stick to your teeth.

They also offer Italian dishes such as Stuffed ravioli with shrimps, Homemade Tortellini with Tune mousse and the Cafe also gives you a chance to create your own dish, an all time favorite for those who frequent Marriott Cafe.

If you are overwhelmed with all the seafood, they also serve juicy roasts from beef and lamb at the Carving Station, and some barbecue pork, marinated chicken and Beijing style duck at the Hot line section.

Ocean’s Surf will be available every Friday and Saturday dinner at PHP 1,750nett for adults and PHP 875nett for children. Children below 12 get in for half the price while children below 6 get in for free!

Marriott Cafe is ideally located at the lobby of Marriott Hotel Manila. Open daily from 6:30am to 11:00pm it offers a sumptuous local and international breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner buffet and irresistible a la carte menu.  For more information and reservations, please call (632)988-9999, find us on face book or visit
