One Sunday about a month or so ago, we trooped to Resorts World to try the Marriott Cafe Sunday Brunch Buffet. Although it costs a whopping P2,500 net per adult (half price for kids), I was surprised to see the place packed with people.
When you say brunch, you expect a cross between breakfast and lunch. Marriott Cafe Sunday Brunch Buffet is all that and a whole lot more. Upon entering you’re greeted by a table full of breads. Focaccia bread, baguettes, dinner rolls, bread sticks… there’s a wide variety to choose from.
There are so many kinds of salads in single-serve plates that I got confused which one to try, haha! I think I went for the Japanese kani (crabstick) salad in the end.
One of my favorite buffet items was the Prawns Thermidor. These big juicy prawns are topped with lots of cheese then buttered and baked. Yummy! 😀
The pasta station gets plus points for having several types of freshly made pasta to choose from which you match with sauces tailor-made to your preferences. They even have gnocchi! We all loved it! 😀
There are carving stations with various meats. I liked the US Ribeye (pictured above).
You can have as much foie gras as you want! How cool is that? Since I was too scared of the high cholesterol content I just had a piece.
Baby potatoes, cherry tomatoes, eggplant, potato wedges… whatever sidings you can think of for the meats, they have it there.
My first plate consisted of various sushi, coleslaw, a slice of US ribeye, and a prawn.
We were surprised to see a cocktail station with a bartender ready to whip up whatever alcoholic beverage you might want.
There’s even a room (yes, an entire room!) dedicated to just desserts. Cakes, French Macarons, fresh fruits, a chocolate fountain, cookies… wow, now I know how Hansel and Gretel felt when they stumbled upon the house made of goodies. XD
They had platter after platter of chocolate truffles… dark, white, milk… filled… plain… it’s a chocoholic’s dream come true.
In terms of food choices, Marriott Cafe Sunday Brunch Buffet probably has the most to offer at this point (it used to be Sofitel’s Spiral but after being flooded by typhoon Ondoy they have yet to reopen). While P2,500 per person is pretty steep, it’s an excellent choice if you’re out to indulge. They also have Indian fare like roti, curry, papadam, etc. plus a Chinese selection consisting of noodles, dimsum, and roasts. There was just so much food it was impossible to try them all in one visit.
The Marriott Sunday Brunch Buffet schedule is 11am to 2pm. I suggest making reservations and going early since the place gets really packed.
