The poor man's Buffet 101. Haha! For P 298, I guess it was worth it. Loved their yellow rice.

Some of my staff just got promoted so they treated us all out to an all-you-can-eat lunch at Cabalen.

We usually go here whenever we would have something to celebrate (a promotion, someone's birthday, someone's kid's birthday, etc.). I don't understand why they like it here, aside from the fact that it's probably the cheapest buffet near our office. 128541

It's an all-Filipino-food buffet, so the usual fare was there: lechon, sisig, bangus, bulalo, adobo. There was also crispy kangkong, ampalaya, and pancit. I soon discovered, though, that not all items on their menu (they have it displayed outside) are brought out simultaneously; they wait for one kind of food to finish before they replace it with another. I discovered this when I went back on my 2nd round to try the adobo which I passed over on my 1st round. When I got to the buffet spread, they replaced the adobo platter with ampalaya. Whaaaat?

And they take a long time to replace the "mainstay" food. I went back to the buffet line 2x, and in both times, the lechon plate was not refilled. :( no lechon for me!

The salad choices are not that extensive, too. I guess they really can't think of Filipino salads to put in aside from ensaladang ampalaya and ensaladang talong and pipino salad *shudder.*

And with the countless yummy native desserts in the Philippines, they could only think of putting minatamis na saba, leche flan, biko, halo halo and a chocolate fountain?! Really?? Where's the bibingka, the pichi pichi, the puto bumbong, the ginumis??? Hay.

However, what it lacks in food choices, it kinda makes up for with the interiors: the high ceiling, glass chandeliers and kapiz lanterns make the place look classy. :) Mirrors on the walls and huge picture windows also make it look spacious.

Food-wise, this is not a good place to bring your foreigner friends to if you want them to have a taste of Filipino cuisine. :( Bad representation of our food! But if you want a cheap buffet to satisfy your growling tummy, I guess this place serves its purpose. At 298 per head, it's the cheapest buffet I've tried. Pang pa-busog lang!
