Gracias, Escolta

Okay, so I am not sure if Escolta is Spanish or whatever.  The important thing is that the buffet of Manila Peninsula hotel delivered on all levels.  All the main course dishes are recipes I have never seen before.  Since I ate another buffet the night before, I tried to take it slow with this buffet.  Boy, did that fail on all levels.  It was hard to resist all the beautiful dishes in front of me.  The appetizer included a whole section of bread, sushi bar and four choices of soup.

Unfortunately, I am someone who rarely eats appetizer at a buffet especially if the main course dishes are so tempting.  The dishes included Braised Beef with Onions and Paprica, Sliced Veal with Mushroom and Leek Potato among others.  There were actually flags on top of the dishes to symbolize the fact that the buffet represents a lot of countries.

It would be a sin to miss desert and there are a ton of cakes and fruits at the desert bar.  My favorite part is obviously the create your own crepe station.  

The buffet goes for a price around 1500 per person but a bunch of charges would boost the price to 2000 pesos.  One of those charges is actually a .7% food tax.  Can you believe that?  This is the first time I have ever heard of a food tax.

Score: 4/5
