Based on a reliable and updated survey (which I conducted in my neighbourhood a week ago), 9 out of 10 Filipinos love B-U-F-F-E-T.
Yup, buffet it is because who doesn’t want to devour an unlimited and extreme selection of food? I believe there are a hundred of buffet restos out there, all competing to grab a spot on the Top 10 lists on the internet.
Lucky for you, I won’t give you a hard time choosing among those 10.
Let me focus on a particular value for money buffet restaurant in the metro —“Bossing’s Grill.” If that sounded sooo “PINOY” to you then guess what? may TAMA ka! (You’re absolutely mega right!) Sounds Pinoy, tastes Pinoy, and most importantly, priced Pinoy (by that I mean relatively affordable compared to other buffet!)
Bossing’s Grill is part of the famous Uncle Cheffy group of Restaurants and Catering Services which includes Kuse, Chef’s Barrel Dining and Pub, Larry and Mau Diner, Chef’s Quarter, and Market Basket (the modern Dampa).
I’ve known Uncle Cheffy’s for their juicy barbecue and thin and tasty brick oven panizza, which is one of my favorites since I’m a sucker for anything with cheese, so when I was invited (thanks to Aldous) to check out the new addition to their group of restaurants, I (faster than the speed of light) said “yes.”
Upon entering the restaurant, I was immediately distracted by the (ARE YOU READY?!)…. GOLDEN CRISPY PATAAAAA and BAGNET shining through their glass wall! Well, aside from that, is the sign saying…….BUFFET FOR 299Php ONLEEEEEH!!! (with 20% discount after 8:30pm) WHAAAAAAAT.
Bossing” knows Pinoy taste buds too well as it offers top Filipino cuisine favourites including Bagnet chips, baked stuffed crab, assorted inihaw, beef steak, fried chicken, caldereta, adobo flakes, sisig, inihaw na pusit, kare-kare, lechon kawali, and panga na tuna.
Believe it or not, your 299 pesos lets you enjoy close to 30 Filipino dishes with Pinoy desserts too (yes, halu-halo is on the list also!) and did I mention that you don’t have to pay extra for the unlimited drinks?
Each dish was cooked well and prepared with the perfect Pinoy taste. Also, their Choco Leche Flan (chocolate flavoured leche flan) is to die for.
If you ask me (and not my reliable survey) why Filipinos love buffets, it is because we love to eat and we are indecisive (I’m sure you have encountered unlimited “kahit ano” or ‘kahit saan” answers in this lifetime whenever you ask someone what and where they want to eat).
Let “Bossing’s Grill” take care of that serious situation in the most affordable way possible! Visit them in their two branches: ground floor of Ali Mall, Araneta Center, Cubao (perfect after watching that PBA game!) and at Bonifacio Global City, Market! Market! branch.
