4th of July Theme in Vikings Luxury Buffet

Dining in Vikings Luxury Buffet during birthdays has been somewhat a yearly tradition for me and my husband. And why not? We had the privilege of experiencing fine dining and I am convinced that Vikings can give hotels a run for their money.

The  presentation of the food by the chefs is exquisite, the ambiance of the place with its chandeliers is very elegant,  yes, even the comfort room looks splendid, all at about half the price of what you would expect to pay in hotel restaurants.


A couple days ago, I was happy to have been invited by my friend Rattus to a food sampling in Vikings SM North Edsa.

Vikings offers a theme every month and for this July, it is "4th of July." A celebration of lavish American inspired cuisine. It starts today, then every weekends (Saturday, Sunday) this whole July.

The menu prepared by their skilled chefs is splendid indeed!

Boston Clam CHowder Soup

Boston Clam Chowder Soup [comforting and potatoes are not overly done]

Indiana's Pork Loin with Cranberry Sauce or Ginger Lime Gaze
Mississippi's Turkey Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie [tasty and satisfying indeed]

3rd Main Course:

Corn on a Cob Yorkkshire Pudding Tenderloin (Red WIne Sauce and Horse Radish Sauce)

Corn on a Cob
Yorkshire Pudding [I cried out upon tasting how yummy it was]
Tenderloin (Red Wine Sauce and Horse Radish Sauce) [I admit this was the first time I tried meat medium rare- middle was pink and it was soft- but I learned that if cooked longer, like if I had it well done, it becomes a bit harder and chewy]

Pastry:

No matter how full I am, there's still space in my tummy for dessert! My meals are never complete without it.

Boston Cream Pie New York Cheese Cke Cherry Cashew Parfaits

Boston Cream Pie [satisfied my hardcore sweet tooth]
New York Cheese Cake [I think we all agreed this was yummy]
Cherry Cashew Parfaits [the taste was just right and I liked chewing the cashews]


Drinks I had:


Green Tea (in previous photo)
Clockwise- Coffee
Minty Lemon-Lime Juice [uniquely refreshing!]
Tamarind Juice [authentic sampaloc taste]

What a grand gustatory delight! If I had to choose a favorite, it is quite hard because they are all delicious, but it would have to be Tortilla Club Sandwich- because it was the first I tasted, everything hence seemed to be dream-like because I was transported to food heaven!!!

We filled ourselves with this good food for about 3 hours, same as the time spent when me and my husband returned here again just last night, his birthday.

Birthdays at Vikings means FREE food (lunch/dinner). FREE buffet for the celebrant who is with one paying adult on the birthday itself. And there is a  new promo for all their branches- bring 4 paying companions and the celebrant can eat for FREE on the other days of his/her birth month. Don't forget to bring your valid ID!
