Richmonde Cafe's Feast on Friday Dinner Buffet.


Most of us look forward to Fridays because it's the end of a stressful work week. Just in case you're in the area, reward yourself with a scrumptious buffet at Richmonde Cafe in Ortigas.  And if you're dining in a group of 4 (and up), you can get 25% off the buffet price! Just mention the code J&M x RHO when you make a reservation.   






T and I were invited by Richmonde Hotel to try their Friday dinner buffet a while back.   As soon as we arrive, we are introduced to the Executive Chef who gives us a tour of the spread.




We start with the appetizers.  Chef tells us that she chooses the salad options based on the weather.  At the time we went, it was still hot so the salads had no mayonnaise or dressings, like Greek Salad or Calamari Salad.











Chef tells us she makes her own Sardines and it takes her one week.  T really likes this.






I like their Shrimp Bisque because the flavor is not that strong.  The deep fried garlic croutons are a plus, too!









There's also a Japanese Station with different kinds of makimono and sashimi, a Cheese Station, and a Bread Basket.












Chef also explains what the different mains are-- Cardamom Chicken, Mahi Mahi with Seafood Sauce, Beef Rouladin in Mushroom Sauce, and Asian Marinated Grilled Pork.












There's also a Pasta Station with different vegetables, seafood, and meat as choices for toppings.












And my favorite part of the buffet.. The Carving Station!  











For the side dishes, there's Plain Rice, Seafood Mixed Paella, Sauteed Mixed Vegetables, and Chateau Potatoes.














I like how there's a Drink Station for bottomless iced tea and juice.  Dinner buffets don't usually have this.






And finally, saving the best for last.. The Dessert Station.  I have this Pistachio Cream Cheese Bread first.







And then we try the Mixed Berry Pannacotta, Kahlua Creme Brûlée, Turtle Cheesecake, Caramel Cream Puffs, and Chocolate Moist Cake.  For those who are not into sweets, there's also a Fruit Station.



















After dinner, they give me and T a box each which contains their bestselling ensaymada.  It's really good!  A must try.






And before going home, T and I have drinks at the bar beside Richmonde Cafe called The Exchange.  They have live entertainment too so it's a good way to pass Friday evening traffic after dinner.






Again, if you're dining in a group of 4 (and up), you can get 25% off the buffet price! Just mention the code J&M x RHO when you make a reservation.   Happy weekend!
