Weekend Family Buffet at Eastwood Cafe

Summer time is family time! I know most of you have already been busy planning a lot of summer vacations and activities which your entire family will enjoy. But if planning for a summer fun is getting to be a challenge, why not just indulge into a family feast and bring the folks and the kids to Eastwood Richmonde Hotel's all-day dining restaurant, the Eastwood Café, and have a delectable yet affordable feast that everyone will surely love? :)

I was invited to the launch of Eastwood Café's Weekend Family Buffet yesterday at Eastwood Richmonde Hotel. Along with other guests and food bloggers, Mark and I got to indulge into an extensive buffet spread, with stations strategically placed in the cafe, featuring hot-off-the-grill meats, healthy hot pot, native delicacies, unlimited sweets, and so much more!

Starting this weekend, Saturday, April 6, and for all weekends of April, May, and June of 2013, Eastwood Café pays tribute to the summer sun and brings a scrumptious Weekend Family Buffet packed with dishes to satisfy every family members' cravings all for just Php 880 nett!

T.G.I. Friday's

It has been 5 months since Mark came home from Qatar but he still didn't have the chance to be with his friends again, especially our college friends. So when Ian asked me out for some get together, I immediately relayed the invite to Mark. Everything was just planned in a rush and everyone already had their prior commitments, and so what transpired was just a dinner date of us three. :)

I fetched Mark after his shift and we headed straight to Eastwood to meet with Ian. We arrived around half past 10pm and started to rummage the place for somewhere to eat. There wasn't a lot of restaurant choices since it was already midnight good thing we spotted T.G.I. Friday's.

Mark was so hungry so we immediately placed our orders the moment we were seated. A few pictures while waiting for our orders... :)

Ian's order was served first. Ian was on a diet (or maybe a bit shy because it was also Mark's early birthday treat for us) and so he only got the Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad. It was just the usual Caesar Salad but what made it shine from the usual I think was the generous amount of slices of marinated char-grilled chicken breasts.

Mark's Jack Daniel's Salmon came in next. Another generous serving, the North Atlantic Salmon fillet was char-grilled and glazed with their special Jack Daniel's sauce. It was also served with buttered corn kernels and cheddar cheese mashed potato. Mark is still on a diet since he's prepping up for some competition and so he settled for fish.

Mark enjoyed his dish. He gave me a spoonful of the fish and I also loved it. The fish was seasoned well, it was not too salty and the Jack Daniel's glaze gave it a sweet and spicy kick.

I started drooling when my order was served. I immediately devoured the dish after I took a photo of it. The chicken and shrimp servings were also generous. The sautéed garlic-marinated chicken breast was very tender and juicy, it was not too salty and was a little spicy. The shrimps were equally delicious and was made more delectable with the Bruschetta marinara.

With onions and bell peppers plus marinara sauce on top of melted Mexican and American cheeses, it felt like I was eating a pizza with chicken and shrimp toppings minus the dough. :p It also comes with creamy mashed potato which balanced out all the spices. This dish is really a must-try!

Most may find T.G.I. Friday's food a bit pricey, but I guess the price is just reasonable. Aside from the good food, T.G.I. Friday's service was also commendable. Our orders didn't take too long to be served and the waiting staff were very attentive to our requests. :)

We all enjoyed our dinner. Aside from the great food, we also had fun catching up and so we all agreed to make it a monthly routine. :) Looking forward to our next dinner date! :)
