Still the best Mongolian Barbecue in the Metro bar none.

For only P370 you get to enjoy unlimited Mongolian Barbecue. Whats good is that you can put all the meat and seafood you want unlike in other similar restaurants where the same is controlled. Word of caution though, do not overstuff your bowl with meat because it could ruin the fla or of the food. Make sure everything is balanced.

I would have given this place a 5 if it had ample parking and service is a bit quicker. No matter what, this place still deserves high marks.

Let's eat like a Mongol!

Went here to come back and taste their Pistachio Sans Rival Cake (96php).According to their staff, it's their specialty. Upon tasting however, it doesn't fall far from the usual cashew-filled sans rival.

Unli Mongolian Rice Bowls! 360 pesos!

Super sulit and super good!
I went back three times! 128541128541128541
Pigmode to the max!

Make sure to save room for dessert! With all the cakes and pastries displayed ... You really can't help but eat at least once slice! I went for the Tiramisu! My friends chose the Sansrival and Strawberry Shortcake. All cakes were equally good! 128076🏻

They also do catering as well!

Their staff were very nice and super attentive!

Cafe Sweet Inspirations at noon turns into an eat all you can Mongolian Bowl joint.

Step 1.  Get a seat (place is packed)
Step 2.  Prepare your Mongolian Bowl.  Pick your veggies,  you can add rice if you like carbs,  add sauce (there is a recipe of sorts posted depending on your preference -  spicy / sweet and spicy), pick your meat (choices include - beef,  pork,  chicken,  squid,  fish fillet,  chicken liver and squid balls)
Step 3.  Pass your bowl to the server and take a number
Step 4.  Chill and wait for your customised Mongolian Bowl to be served.

I followed the spicy recipe.  Skipped rice,  added bean sprouts,  carrots and bell pepper,  added chicken,  beef and pork.  And voila,  Mongolian Bowl ala Reich.  This bowl of stir fried goodness is oozing with flavors,  the meat is cooked perfectly and best eaten hot.  Price tag - php 360, not bad eh?

For a straightforward recommendation, I so love their pistachio cake. It melts in your mouth. They offer unlimited Mongolian buffet for 360php which I find so sulit. Plus they have variety of pastries to choose from. I also like their cordon bleu rice meal. Haha it's like you'll love everything in this cafe. From rice meals to viands, not so pricey too. What will really make you stay are their staff who are so welcoming. Better drop by and for sure you won't leave empty handed :)

The place isn't that big and the food they offer isn't that grand as compared to other buffet restaurant. The best thing about Sweet Inspirations is the homie feeling it brings because the place is cozy and people are very friendly, food is good as well. Various cakes are served too and believe me, they'll bring you to cloud 9! #12Days

Café Sweet Inspirations is an institution in Katipunan and they serve a mean breakfast buffet.  That's what he said. 

There is veracity in his claims.  Yes,  the joint has been around for quite sometime and they do serve a mean breakfast buffet.  I say this after three breakfast buffets and one late night visit to nurse a cake craving.

The buffet is reasonably priced.  You get to pick from myriad of Filipino breakfast staples.  From tapa,  longganisa,  tocino,  dried herring,  danggit and adobo.  You get to pick from plain rice to good old-fashioned sinangag, pair it with fluffy scrambled eggs,  if you want to carbo load,  get some pancit canton. They also serve fried eggplant and shrimp paste.  You can nurse a bad cold with their arrozcaldo and champorado.  Dont forget dessert,  they have kakanin too and some pastries.

I liked their tapa,  tender and flavorful.  The danggit never goes old,  i pair it with arrozcaldo.  Aside from tge hearty dishes, one thing that makes Café Sweet Inspirations is their excellent customer service.  The servers are quick and pleasant.  Full house on a Sunday morning is a walk in the park,  that's how efficient they are. 

If you don't feel like waking up early and wants to have something sweet,  try the pistachio sansrival.  Teal colored frozen cake that is nothing but awesome. Crunchy,  buttery and creamy. 

I have yet to try the Mongolian Barbeque Buffet they have during lunch time.  Maybe next week.

This place is kinda "hidden" even though it's just along Katipunan Ave because their signage isn't easy to see. 128514

Thought this was just an all-coffee, all-desserts café, to my surprise they also do Mongolian buffet for P300, I think. 128584 Well, to be honest, my first bowl was a failure. At 22, I still don't know some cooking games, so what I did was, I just put some rice and every sauce I saw. When I gave it to their staff for it to be cooked, it tastes soooooo salty!!!! 128541128552128541128552128541128552128541128552128541128552128541128552128541 But I had to finish it since they charge P150 for left over. It was unedible, but I had to finish it.

On my second bowl, I followed their posted instructions on how to make a sweet & spicy rice... I followed it and it turned out good! 128522 Lesson learned: Don't pretend to be great cook and mix everything you see. Finally I was able to eat it but that's just all. Can no longer finish a third bowl so I went for dessert already: Leche flan! 127854

They have lots of cakes and pastries. Can't wait to try the others. 128522

Breakfast buffet for 250 is good. Filipino breakfast at its finest. Only complain though is the spacing between tables.

Mongolian buffet is good and affordable! I have my own sauce combination though - half a teaspoon of brown sugar, 4 teaspoons of garlic, 2 tablespoons of Mongolian sauce, 1 tablespoon of teriyaki sauce, 6 teaspoons of chili paste and half a teaspoon of chili (siling labuyo) 978697869786

Sweet inspirations offers Filipino dishes and mongolian rice on their menu. They also offer unlimited mongolian rice bowl, but that is too heavy already for me at that time.

Good thing they offered all day breakfast, hence I ordered Pork Tocino. The tocino tastes good especially with their vinegar!

The new york cheesecake is not bad too, considering its price, which is relatively cheap for a cheesecake. This tastes good as well though this needs improvement!

By the way, Sweet Inspirations has a big place, hence it can be loud at times. Then, service can be slow too. But the staff are very poliye and apologetic.
