Mercado the Budget Buffet

I have been to Mercado numerous times in the past so I am aware they give discounts to new Resorts World card members. There is no a la carte here so you would have to settle for the buffet.  

Last year, I became a member of Resorts World because I saw that you would get a 70% off the buffet price when you dine at Mercado.  Right now, I don't know what their promotion is but people who are not members yet will certainly head over to this awesome buffet.  Since the buffet is cheap compared to other buffets in the area, you won't see dishes like salmon, shrimp tempura and roast beef.  However, I saw my new favorite dessert Bread Pudding so I got real excited for dessert.  

This Beef with Asparagus is nothing to get excited about.  All the dishes here were good which was surprising for a budget buffet.  Pictured at bottom is Seafood with Cashew nuts and below that is Fish with black bean sauce.  There were a couple of dimsum choices including asado siopao and spareribs.



I took 3 pictures then got cut off by some idiot who told me "not allowed to take pictures".  Do I look like a Korean to you, mofo?  Anyway, I decided to take some food after that since my tummy was growling.  There was a bread toaster that is easy to use so you can reheat the bread before eating.

Since I have eaten at Mercado so many times, I conclude you must take a look at the dishes before deciding to eat there.  There are times when the dishes are fantastic and there are times when you won't be able to put anything on your plate because all the choices suck.

Today, I was luck because almost all the choices in this Filipino restaurant were okay.  The buffet was not big but it was good enough to topple notable Filipino buffet restaurants like Kamayan and Kamay Kainan.

I have a Resorts World card but haven't claimed it. I've yet to go there one day.

I didn't think there would be anything 'budget' in RWM since it looks so posh.

Several restaurants I hear are quite wary of picture-taking, probably makes them a little nervous.

Their food looks so delicious. But I wonder why there are policies prohibiting diners to take pictures of food.

"not allowed to take pictures"? why o why? >:/

Gil Camporazo ayon kay ...

It's not your fault why you took those pictures. I don't know if there's a sign that says so not to take food pictures. In fairness with this resto, you should be given a due respect for they've the reason why taking pictures of their foods are not allowed. Remember this is a business and competition is highly regarded issue.

picture taking is prohibited since the restaurant is located within the casino area.it's always like that whenever you're in a casino.you guys should know that businesses runs policies before calling their staff idiot and mofo that dutifully only follows the company's policy.
