Restaurant Review: Mongolian Lunch and Dinner Buffet

Published on June 09, 2012

FTFBadgeIt was a rainy night in Tagaytay so we opted to stay in the hotel and just avail of One Tagaytay Place’s Mongolian Dinner Buffet. A restaurant staff approached and talked to me about the buffet when I used the hotel’s restroom prior to our check-in time. I declined since we planned on going out for lunch but I told him that we’d avail it for dinner. The restaurant is just on the right side of the reception area so you literally don’t need to get out of the hotel premises.

The same man who approached me earlier ushered us to our seats. We were lucky to be seated right away when we arrived because the other guests after us had to wait for other seats to be vacated.

It was my first time to experience a Mongolian buffet. We weren’t able to try it when we paid Mongolian Quick-Stop a visit. Fortunately, Jeff and Joie were with us. Their only tip: Just put everything you want on your bowl!

I first put enough rice in my bowl. Then I put different kinds of meat and seafood. I added vegetables to make my dinner healthier and more colorful too.

The most difficult part was choosing what sauce to put. I was keenly observing how Jeff put a little bit of everything. I was so scared at how my bowl would taste when I put teriyaki sauce, chili garlic, brown sugar and sesame oil.

Joie asked the manager why they don’t have peanuts. According to Joie, a Mongolian bowl is not as tasty without a sprinkle of peanuts.

We handed our bowls to the waitress and gave us number stubs in return. After a few minutes, the bowls started to arrive on our table.

If I remember it correctly, the buffet costs PHP350 inclusive of a glass of iced tea. Except for Jeff who took another bowl, I believe we didn’t get our money’s worth. Nawala ang takaw ko sa sobrang pagod! =))
