Cafe d’ Asie Buffet at Bellevue Manila

Our recent staycation at Bellevue Hotel in Alabang was inclusive of a Cafe d’ Asie buffet lunch. When I was younger I loved buffets because it meant being able to eat obscene amounts of food at a fixed price. I still like buffets, but the reason why has evolved. These days, it just means I can choose what I want to eat and decide which interesting stuff to try pronto. I really can’t eat as much as I used to. It has something to do with age I guess. The buffet area is markedly smaller compared to hotels like Sofitel and Shangri-la, but it also costs less per head compared to those two. At the very least I like how it’s set up because it’s very easy to go around and check out all the offerings.

Cafe D Asie BuffetThere were two soups that day, this Cream of Spinach soup and Turkey Soup with Egg.

Cafe D Asie BuffetThere were a few cheeses with the usual accompanying dried fruits, nuts, and honey. I love cheese, I always have some at buffet spreads that offer it.

Cafe D Asie BuffetI noticed that the main dishes were mostly Chinese-inspired, because aside from the dimsum and noodle station there were short order dishes like this Yang Chow Fried Rice…

Cafe D Asie Buffet…Braised Pork with Mushroom…
