It wasn’t my first time dining at Vikings Luxury Buffet in SM City Marikina. With some friends, I was there a couple of months ago. I had such a wonderful time at their place that I swore to take my husband to Vikings when he comes home. I cooked up a plan to celebrate his birthday through a simple family dinner.
Vikings Ultimate Luxury Buffet was tagged by “Ang Pinaka,” GMA News TV’s magazine show as the “Pinakapatok na Buffet Restaurant” in Metro Manila today. It was given a rating of 4.5 / 5 star ratings of Trip Advisor.
Vikings offers a wide-array of cuisine from different parts of the world like Italian, French, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Vietnamese, and even our own Filipino. But we did not barge or walked-in their resto just like that. A day before our scheduled family dinner, I made a reservation through sending a private message to their official Facebook page.
Since it was my husband’s birthday, he got to eat for free, and he was even given a free cake by the staff. He just presented a valid ID showing his birthdate.
I began my gastronomic journey with a Cream of Asparagus soup. I remember choosing this over Sinigang na Lechon.
You can get to choose your own appetizer. Cheese? Bread? Soup? Salad? You won’t be disappointed with the selections at Vikings.
Freshly-baked breads, anyone?
This is every Japanese food lovers’ paradise! Though not seen in this photo, I remember seeing different kinds of makis, sushi and sashimi.
Baked Oysters. Whenever I pass by them, people are always falling in line for this. Too bad for me because I’m not a huge fan of oysters.
If you’re very excited for the main course, these are some of my favorite dishes from Vikings. I love their version of Lechon — so crispy, soft, and juicy. The same goes with their Roasted Turkey and Beef. These are must-try’s when you dine in here.
Of course, when dining, beverages shouldn’t be left behind. Vikings offer different kinds of juices, shakes, sodas, coffee, and yes, even beer — all unlimited or bottomless. I’ve also tried Vikings’ Wintermelon juice. Beside the freshly-brewed Twinings Iced Tea is Mango Juice, which my daughter loved! She had 3 glasses of this when we were there.
I’ve tried the Fresh Strawberry Lemonade. It is sweet and fruity! There were bits and pieces of strawberry seeds. I’ve also tried the Milo Shake, tastes-like Milo, of course!
If you need booze, here’s for you. Drink your heart out with this bottomless beer!
You can also “Make Your Own Pasta or Pizza.” 🙂
Here’s some of the foods that ended up in my plate!
Round #1: Crab, Baked Cheesy Macaroni, Siomai, Sausage, Yakitori, Roast Beef, Grilled Squid, Lechon, and Hakaw. 🙂
One of the foods that I kept coming back for was their Pork & Shrimp Siomai and Hakaw! There were just so yummy! My husband loved them, too! I love the fact that they stayed true to the ingredients to make some good real tasty siomai. I’d say, all out! 🙂
I love sweets and I always leave room for dessert. Here’s a pinch of what to find at Vikings. There’s certainly more to what my camera could take shots of. The have ice cream, 3 chocolate fountains, Halo-Halo station, Bibingka and other Filipino traditional desserts (kutsinta, puto, suman, etc.)
I gotta try their Red Velvet Cake, Chocolate-Coated Cream Puffs, Creme Brulee, and Blueberry Cheesecake.
Dining at Vikings Luxury Buffet in SM City Marikina was indeed very satisfying. My husband said that what we paid for was worth it! Children below 3 feet can eat for free, too! 🙂
There is surely a next time for us here. ❤ Vikings at SM City Marikina!
