Food was quite expensive. serving is big, but not big enough to be worth the price. Plus everything was just too sweet for me. If you're a sweet tooth?m, then you'll love this place!

Buffet 52 - a buffet house just along Cafe 52.
Me, Charlene C and Charel were very ravenous that we originally decided to eat in Gogi Gui, a cheap unlimited grilling house with korean side dishes but as we went there it was already closed for good. Good thing, there are a lot of options for a Korean Buffet restaurant and chanced upon this newly discovered buffet grilling place.

In just 399php you could enjoy the unlimited buffet which includes a lot of dishes such as rice, fried rice, buttered chicken, sushi, pancit, jampong, kimchi soup, bibimbap, pizza (and many dishes I have failed to mention). There are also marinated beef, chicken and pork, samgyeopsal, shrimps for unlimited grilling. Aside from that you can also enjoy dessert such as ice cream and cupcakes. There are also different tea's. But be sure before getting foods randomly that you can finished it, since leftovers would make you pay 699php, much more expensive than the prize you pay.

On the other hand, the staffs were very accommodating. One staff welcomed us and explain what are the inclusions of the buffet, he was so smiley and talkative at the same time. There's no hassle for grilling as well since one staff could also grill the marinated meat you get. I love how friendly the staffs are.

But be sure to get there early for lunch since they only opens at 11am-2pm, we didn't ask though if what time they would resume for dinner time.

DavaoeƱos who are Korean food lovers this place is for you 128522

Yeah, it was weird that the waitress gave me a spoon. ONLY. I still don't get it.

Anyway, I ordered Spaghetti Classico and Ice Matcha Green Tea. I love their Matcha Green Tea! Reminds me of Matcha flavored KitKat. 128525
The pasta was okay. It was just an ordinary pasta and it was great too. 128076

I like the place. Because as my sister, Suzette C, mentioned that the place was very spacious. It's the perfect place to hang out with friends and just talk.

The place was super spacious, tables and chairs were nice and there are a lot of food choices. It's a coffee shop and restaurant. So you can come in to eat a heavy meal or chill with their cold drinks or halo halo.

I tried their korean version mango shaved ice, it was good, but serving was quite small and we found it quite pricey, but ambiance was definitely a winner, we would like to comeback again because the place does not get tok crowded :)
