Dinner Buffet at Chef Laudico Guevarra's

7:33 AM Lee 0 Comments

Having buffet lunch or dinner is one of the most popular kinds of get together events especially to Filipino families. We have the Japanese, Western, or Filipino cuisine. The good thing about buffet is the vast selection of cuisine, from appetizers, main course, to desserts. 

After seeing Guevarra’s on Kris TV, we’ve decided to celebrate Ron’s birthday there. It is not located on the likes of Capitol Commons or High Street, but in a subdivision at Addition Hills in San Juan City. A little help from Waze app is what you need if you’re not familiar in San Juan. 

Arriving at the place, a beautiful (ancestral) house will welcome you with a sociable garden for waiting customers and enough parking spaces for guests. 

I’m not really prepared for a feast, so here’s what my plate looks like.
Salad w/ Guava Jelly dressing, Angus Tapa, Baby Back Ribs
I had salad (singkamas, carrots, bell pepper, mango, lettuce) in guava jelly dressing, Angus tapa, baby back ribs, and a small dessert. The guava jelly dressing on my salad was delivering fireworks on my taste palette. Delish! That I had to ignore the meat on my plate. All others were also good.
Tablea Champorado & Kalabasa Pastillas
The tablea champorado is highly commendable that comes in small portions, which looks neat rather than having it in a big container. The serving amount was a good choice.

Of course on special occasions, there’s a complimentary cake for the celebrant with the singing waiters! I love when they sang the birthday song with the lyric “Tumatanda ka na pero cute ka pa rin!

Overall my dining experience is okay. Some tables are in a room-type area, so it would be better if there were waiters stationed in each areas of the house. It was frustrating at first to ask someone to clean up being in a corner table, we had to go out of the room just to get the attention of the staff. An alternative would be having a dish station so as for the customers to just bring the plates there. The staff are very polite and accommodating, a good point for their customer service. Chandeliers, wooden floors and walls give it a homey feel, it reminds me of my lola’s house in the province. 

For first timers, I’d say give it a try! :)
