In a nutshell, flavor is all about the experience of the food, minding the food as a whole, it's color, texture, the aroma, the whole censorial feel and probably some memories attached to it making the food a flavorful dish.
Just in time for a flavorful meal, set amidst the hustle and bustle of Makati shopping arena, Bhogs and I were able to check out Flavors Rsstaurant, at Holiday Inn & Suites Makati. Let see how we can truly define flavor against taste here.
Spectrum Restaurant. I knew they just turned one year since they opened their doors last April 1 and they have been celebrating since then.
I have a secret! There had been a promo that's going on till April 30 which coincides with their 1 year anniversary celebration. After finding out about this, we went straight to Holiday Inn at Glorietta, Makati to verify the deal and it was confirmed. Will tell you about it at the end of this post. In the mean while just indulge in the photos I have collated during our buffet session.
We were so blessed to have come early, we were the first diner to come for yesterday's buffet dinner actually. We came a few minutes after 6 pm, though they open at 6:30 pm.
Aside from being seated near the buffet area, this has been my view for the rest of the dinner time. I love the simplicity yet intricacy of this artwork, however I didn't go further to study the piece for I was more eager to see their offerings. So let me now give you a food tour at Flavor's buffet area.
Starting with the salad station.
On a bed of crushed ice are bowls of pre-prepared salad mixes and some other mix-ins on the other side, and all over the table, while on the middle is a bunch of fresh lettuce.
I didn't get any bread anymore, but I find the tall bread sticks amusing.
Make a 360 degree round about and you will see the Sushi area, with a chef commanding the station never misses a space on the sushi trays.
On the center next to the chef's station is the isle for main dishes. I checked first what they serve for soup. They usually have two options, for now they have Butternut Squash soup and Cream of Corn.
You will love this station! Promise!
What a way to finish a table. This spot totally defines Flavors Restaurant. Laid on the table are gorgeous spices on wooden plates so the diners can have the feel of how unusual spices looks, smells and feel like, though I dare you to taste them.
I couldn't even describe them all anymore. But what really made my day was the Halo-halo station. Since I've been craving for it for days already.
Like most of buffet meals on hotels, beverages aren't included in the price of the buffet, but the wait staff were so mindful of our glass being empty with cold water. Though, a cup of coffee or tea comes with the buffet package.
Oh! Of course, I would not go from here without telling you my secret!
We only spent P 1117 for the both of us! A regular fee for the buffet is P1,100, as for their hush, hush promo, a companion pays only P 1 for his or her meal. This promo is valid for lunch or dinner. Hurry this promo will run only until April 30, 2014.
