The Viking goes to the South!

Popular buffet chain Vikings Luxury Buffet recently opened a branch at SM BF Paranaque (hooray for southerners like me!). Been wanting to treat my mom here and it’s great that they have a birthday promo because she’ll be "buffet-ing" for free! (another hooray!)

When we arrived, there were already a lot of people waiting at the walk-in queue. Good thing that I already made reservations so we were immediately led to our seats. Vikings SM BF is high-ceiling, has elegant lights and at the center is a very extensive hors d'oeuvres spread. I liked their waldorf salad, watermelon gazpacho, caprese, and tuna geviche. I find their cheese and cold cuts lacking tho.

I then proceeded to the belly chon, forty cloves roasted chicken and deep fried turkey which you can drizzle with wild mushroom or barbeque sauce—yummy! Vikings SM BF also has a make-your-own shawarma station.

I also enjoyed the Asian dishes such as beancurd roll, hakaw, roasted beef mechado, pork asado, steamed suahe and fish ampalaya tausi. They also have different kinds of siomai—pork, chilli chow, beef and quail egg.  For soup lovers, Vikings SM BF has seafood bouillabaisse, seafood hototay and birthday noodles soup.

My mom, meanwhile, feasted on various seafood and Japanese standards such as maki, sushi, etc.

Finally, time for dessert! Well, it’s not that extensive—the usual fresh fruits, panna cottas, ice cream and halo-halo. But they have plenty of cakes and Flipino native delicacies like puto bumbong, kutsinta and pichi-pichi. Plus, they have a chocolate and white chocolate fondue!

The PhP 932.40 I paid (weekend lunch rate of PhP 888 tax exclusive) also comes with unlimited drinks. And there were plenty to choose from—from Jacob Creek wines, milk tea, to Milo shake! But I’m quite disappointed with the various juices (lemongrass tea, fresh tamarind, lemonade, etc) because it was too “artificially” sweet.

Anyways, they gave a small cake for my mom , made her wear a “Vikings” hat and sang her a birthday song. Truly, my mom celebrated her birthday like a Viking!
