It’s my Dad’s special day and I wanted to have lunch with him, just the two of us. So I insisted that he try Vikings.
I think it’s imperative that you make a reservation for restaurants like this, specially when it’s new and there’s still that hype, where almost everybody wants to try that new buffet place. What I like about Vikings is their wide selection of food items that’s quite comparable to those expensive hotel buffets. The interiors are quite endearing, and the servers were quite courteous and attentive.
Each table has a number that is in a small shield which I think is quite cool btw. There are a total of four food stations in the restaurant, that is quite distant from each other. But since we arrived a bit late and I was really starving I decided to skip the appetizers and get to the good stuff 😀
I started with their fish fingers with a bit of garlic ranch, some sausages and tenderloin which I drizzled with their truffle sauce. And since I love their tenderloin cuts I repeatedly went to their grilling stations to get some. (There’s a line and you can only get three slices of meat, choice of lamb, lechon, and tenderloin) I usually prefer it well done but the cook suggested medium well since thoroughly cooking it might cause it to be like your flip-flops and said I might not be able to eat it.
My dad really enjoyed the seafood items for grilling as well as the oysters. The last time I tried Vikings was December and at that time there was Diwalin their seafood section, what’s sad though was the availability was limited and other items were not available towards the end of the buffet.
I did munch on a few of their rolls and loved their chawanmushi. We also tried their dumplings I liked their hakaw and cuapao.
Lastly I finished it off with a couple of mousse some brownies and those marshmallows dipped in chocolate. Since they also have brewed coffee I got it with an additional espresso shot for that extra punch. The coffee wasn’t all that great but I’d still opt for coffee with my dessert platter rather than juice or soda. My Dad was so full he just got fresh fruits for dessert 😀
