The New Spiral Buffet Manila 005

Bonjour Mabuhay!

After all what happened during the previous storm and despite being the most expensive buffet in Manila, Spiral Buffet at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila remains the best and the most sought after hotel buffet in the Philippines. Well, I don’t see any reason why not… It offers luxury in every level. The Food is still exceptionally amazing, top notch service and hospitality, ultra modern equipment, and a truly exquisite dining experience.

After more than a year of renovation, the New Spiral Manila emerges stronger than ever and immediately took the crown of being the best, most luxurious and the biggest buffet in the Philippines and probably in Asia. Let me list down some of the major improvements and changes that the New Spiral offers.

While most of us call it Food Stations… Spiral Calls it Dining Ateliers!

Fresh locally grown produce and organic colorful vegetables freshly picked from our garden will be tossed for you by our chefs with your choice of homemade salad dressings.

That Was Amazing!! These dishes were served during a Weekday Lunch. Expect a more extensive spread during Weekends and Brunch! I must tell you, you have to prepare your tummy before diving in to Spiral’s Buffet Spread!!

Technically, no one is allowed to take this much photos of the food especially in detail so a big THANK YOU to my 2 Angels who assisted me in taking photos. If it wasn’t for them I would be probably be dragged away by the security! You know who you are!! :)

If you want to increase the level of luxury, If you are dining in a big groups or if you just want to dine privately with your officemates, friends or family, you may reserve one of Spiral Manila’s Private function rooms. You must spend a minimum amount to be able to use one of the rooms.
