As average income earners, Fred and I only dine at (a bit pricey) buffet restaurants during special occasions. Last September, we celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary at Buffet 101 International Cuisine (Cebu). It was Sunday, we didn’t call for a reservation so we went there quite early.
The opening time was 11AM, we’re not yet allowed to go near the tables but at least the staff were very accommodating and there were chairs for the waiting guests. We were asked for the number of people dining, age for seniors and kids, and while waiting, Louise had fun posing for some photos
Buffet 101 People and Ambiance
I always love a place which is not crowded and that day, since we arrived early, I was able to notice how modern and stylish the interiors were especially the ceiling. I loved their crystal chandeliers, I even felt like dining in a 5-star hotel’s restaurant for a lower price. All-in-all, the place looks elegant. Staff were very friendly as well. I noticed they also have function rooms but forgot to ask for details. If you’re planning for a hassle-free event and if you have the budget, then this place can be a good choice.
Food and Desserts
From the name itself, you won’t get disappointed with the number of food choices because Buffet 101 has a wide variety of delicacies; from Chinese selection to Korean, Japanese, Filipino, European and American cuisine. I always love grilled meat so I checked first their grilling station.
I walked around with Louise so forgive me if I can’t provide you more photos of the food. But I tried my best to take a photo of their dessert station though.
For me to have enough place in my tummy for the food I loved, I didn’t bother getting rice, just look at my plates! Their shrimp tempura is one of my favorites so I went for a second batch.
September is also Fred’s and my birth month so we got birthday cake from them. We weren’t able to avail their birthday promo though because there were only 3 of us paying adults.
