Cebu City Marriott Hotel is known to be one of Cebu’s premier business hotels. Conveniently located in Cebu Business Park, and just a stone throw away to Ayala Center Cebu, the hotel is very ideal for visiting businessmen, families and tourists, as it is in the middle of one of Cebu’s major business and lifestyle districts.

Another thing that Cebu City Marriott hotel can be proud of is its F&B outlet, Garden Cafe, as it bested other restaurants in Cebu on Tripadvisor, and is currently on the website’s number 1 restaurant in the metro.

Last night, I had a pre-valentine dinner with my fellow Cebu Fashion Bloggers to get the feel of the Garden Cafe’s dining experience. The international buffet spread has different stations – Salad Station, Pasta Station, Grilling Station, Curry Station, Japanese Station, Dessert and Fresh Fruit Station to name a few.

I started my dinner with a sampler plate, which included slices of lechon belly, roasted ribs and grilled squid rings. From the heavy appetizer, I progressed to chow down on some maki rolls and slices of tuna and salmon. And then Chef Nestor made us sample some of the newest dish creations like Malunggay-Squash Raviolli in Creamy Tomato Sauce and Tofu Sisig. And for dessert, we had Turon Halo-halo! Yum! My most favorite part of the entire dinner? The Malunggay-Squash Ravioli! It’s made with malunggay and squash then enveloped in pasta, with cream and tomato sauce and shreds of cheese. Really good!

Tides also added a station that the little ones would definitely love, the Kiddie Station! Kids get to choose any food from a spread of kids’ favorite dishes and even get the food themselves since the chafing dishes are reachable by kids as tiny as 3 feet. And yes, candies as much as they want!

Tides 3

Cebu is known for having the best roasted pig recipe in the country. And when at Shangri-La Mactan, you don’t have to go outside the hotel to get your fill, for Tides is serving roasted pig  fresh from their kitchen’s very own charcoal pit every dinner. Complete the experience by dipping the meat with either liver sauce or  vinegar and chili. Yum!

Tides 13

 

The spread at Tides is insanely good! With more than 150 really delectable dishes to choose from, dining at Tides is a feast! Risotto, La Galbi at the Korean station, Chicken Cordon Blu at the Western Station and Lechon at the Charcoal Grill and Rotisserie Station to name a few of my Tides buffet favorites.

And we have to thank  Head Chef Mark Mulder  and Chef de Cuisine Alvin Lee for the wonderful International spread!

Chef Mark Mulder now heads the culinary team at Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa, Cebu, taking the lead in the renovation of Tides, the resort’s all- day dining outlet.

“People are excited with the re-opening of Tides. While considered the breakfast hub for our in-house guests, we envision Tides as an all-day dining restaurant, market service- style, where guests enjoy the best of international cuisines,” Chef Mark said.

While Chef Alvin is in charge of all Tides activities related to the kitchen – from menu creation, kitchen staff management and restaurant inventory to plating design.  He  joined  Shangri-La Tides Team at an auspicious time, with a fully renovated all-day dining restaurant as playground to showcase his culinary expertise.

“I am truly thrilled to be joining the Shangri-La group for the first time. I look forward to leading the Tides team, especially after a substantial renovation of the restaurant. As an interactive lifestyle restaurant, Tides’ cuisine philosophy is simple – ‘fresh out of the pan, hot off the grill and right out of the oven.’ We are excited to welcome back Tides’ loyal patrons,” said Chef Alvin.

And  I am ending this blog with a shout out to all Tides servers, who deserve to be commended for their outstanding courtesy and service. All of you made our dining experience more snug and cushy. Thank you! ^_^

Tides will officially reopen on October 29, 2014, Wednesday.

Some people think that they should have an appetite of that like the Blob for them to get their money’s worth on hotel buffets. But that’s a totally wrong assumption. First, most of Cebu’s best hotels have great chefs! And great chefs = awesome food! ^_^ And how’d you know who are the best hotels in Cebu? They get featured on iLuvCebu! 😛 And second, you just need to know a few tactics to be able to squeeze in everything you want in your tummy.

So we hope you brought your appetite today as we give you a walkthrough on UNO Restaurant’s buffet.

Uno would be the very first restaurant  you’ll come across as you pass the cobblestone strip at the Gourmet Walk ( if coming in from the main lobby) of the Waterfront Hotel and Casino in Lahug. The buffet restaurant offers a spread of International, Chinese, Japanese, Mongolian and Asian cuisine.

The big square section carries the appetizers, salad bar, a good cheese selection, Japanese and International dishes. The other square section holds the dimsum and Filipino dishes. The long stretched counter is where the roasts, Mongolian and grilling stations are. And last but not the least, the dessert section!

I love cheeses! Two of my favorites are the creamy milky  brie and the grassy – fruity taste of emmental. The soup of the day was Pumpkin Ginger soup was really good, flavorful and surprisingly the ginger taste was just right without overpowering the pumpkin taste, or vice versa. The Mongolian station where you can pick your own ingredients for your perfect Mongolian plate is also a personal favorite. And all- you- eat crepes and make-your own halo-halo at the dessert station  would be heaven to those who loves sweets!

After running some errands at a nearby mall in North Reclamation Area, I gave myself a good pat at the back for being so productive and  said “hey, me, myself and I need to celebrate!” haha. Okay okay, that’s just a lame excuse. The truth is , I feast a lot (the blog gives it away , no mystery there). Well, as Julia Child said, “People who love to eat, are always the best people.” #TrueThat

So I decided to take on the buffet spread of Tokyo Table. Been hearing a good bunch of people talking about Tokyo Table‘s great buffet, but I tend to temper down my expectation on buffets for I know only a few great places here in Cebu that carry an awesome food wagon.

I was greeted with a warm smile as I entered the restaurant and walking to my table, waitresses I pass by welcomed me with smiles, that made me feel more dashing. Teehee.

So here’s the spread. One side of the buffet are raw meat for grilling. Squid, shrimps, beef, chicken, pork, hotdogs and  hams. On the other side are asian favorites like lemon chicken, korean pork barbecue, spicy squid and etc. At one corner is  a dimsum station where you can find the soup, siomai and some steamed ribs. Some sushi varieties,  Japanese rolls, tempura and calamares on the chef’s spread. There’s also a dessert station, where you can choose from an array of cakes, an ice cream station and DIY halohalo! You also get an unlimited fill of sodas and iced tea.

Had a weeklong birthday celebration and my last birthday hurrah for 2013 was a dinner with my family. <3  We love Japanese food and decided to have  yakiniku at Wakamatsu. Without making any reservation, we were lucky to got a table for dinner. Yipeee! (well it’s my birthday celebration so God’s been extra kind to me. :P) But seriously, you should make a reservation when you plan to dine here. For dinner, everything on the menu  is on Eat-All-You-Can (except for the drinks which would be charged and just 1 round of dessert for free). And price is just for 580php. But be sure to order just what you can consume or else you would be charged double. 🙂

Seasoned angus, buttered scallops, squid, maki salad, california maki and chili shrimps would be our top recommendations to order for this restaurant. Chicken was seasoned well too. On top of the awesome food, service is good! <3 This would be one of the restaurants that we would love to visit over and over again. 🙂
