Last week, to properly bid goodbye to one of our office mates and friend who would be transferring to his new job, we ate at The City Buffet Restaurant in Robinsons Galleria. For the price of P449 for an eat-all-you-can lunch buffet, it was worth it. It was actually a lunch treat so it was more than worth it for us because we ate for free :-) And you just add P59 for unlimited drinks.
Same with Yakimix, taking pictures of the food is not allowed but we managed to take some of the buffet area.
The right side of the buffet spread has the soup and the grilled stuff. For me, there were actually more food choices at Yakimix because of the choices for grilling.
This was plate no. 1 for me. Weird, the shrimps were just half. I think the other half was cooked as tempura.
And this is plate no. 2. Notice that I keep coming back to the sushi spread. I just love them! And notice again the bodyless shrimp?
Of course, the highlight of the meal must be the dessert and while it did not disappoint, I was happier with Yakimix. Below is the halo-halo section. They took a long time to bring out some ice though.
And this was the cake and toppings section for the ice cream. So few gummy bears :(
This is the dessert section. I loved the blueberry cheesesake! But I didn't get to try the other desserts because I was full already.
So the verdict, on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best buffet experience, I gave Yakimix an 8 while I give City Buffet a 6. Its actually just a poor imitation of Yakimix for me. So if I were to eat in a buffet again, between the two, it would be Yakimix.
