Another hotel another buffet. I’m not a big fan of buffets but I was eager to see Resort World and Marriott Hotel.
As far as I know this is the only buffet in Manila that had free iced tea and 4 kinds too. There was the St. Patrick’s iced tea which was green and too sweet, strawberry mango, regular and the cranberry mint iced tea which I drank. It was the least sweet yet I needed to add a glass of ice to it. I liked the flavor though.

I loved their salad bar.
There was also several kinds of prepared salads.
Cashew, pecans, almonds and pine nuts
smoked salmon, salami, pork loin
assorted cheese & dried fruits
Pomeroy mustard, horseradish, mint jelly, I understand. But what is atchara doing next to the roast meats?
porkloin & US topblade
Entrees were simply labeled as vegetable, chicken, pork and fish.
garlic pesto bread
sushi, shrimp, fish and vegetable tempura
Chinese roasted meats
dim sum, soup, noodle soup
There were lots and lots of dessert.
gelato, fresh juice bar, halo halo, fruits
These are my plates. Some dim sum, pizza, bread, cheese and nuts.
Large romaine lettuce with pecans, figs, corn and marinated mushrooms. Fish, sweet potato and shrimp tempura.
More fish tempura and some Mongolian bbq which was too salty because I had the rice reduced at the last minute.
Most of the sweets I tried were pretty good. The best was the small glass on the left which was a light and yummy coconut pana cotta.
I tried some gelato – coconut, Maracaibo chocolate and Palawan honey and nuts.
The Maracaibo chocolate gelato blew me away. The flavor was unique and intense. It tasted like potent chocolate liqueur. The best chocolate gelato ever!

Finally a really nice and modern hotel bathroom. The design was very similar to the one in Elements mall in Hong Kong.
The buffet was pretty good. They didn’t have as many choices as in other hotels but for me that was a plus. I believe in less choices but better quality. My only gripe was the lousy coffee.
