Feast on Friday Dinner Buffet at Richmonde Cafe in Ortigas

If you're searching for the best dinner buffet places in town, why not go hunt around Ortigas area, as it offers an incredible variety of restaurants, hotels and cafes to suit every taste and occasion, without breaking the bank.
One place I can suggest to you is Richmonde Café, the all-day dining restaurant of Richmonde Hotel Ortigas, that recently joins the T.G.I.F. celebration by offering us dwellers of the metro’s concrete jungle a convenient and relaxing venue, away from the maddening crowd.
Now, we can cap off the weekend with friends and colleagues, over a scrumptious buffet, wine, and drinks, right in the heart of Ortigas Center’s business district.
You can indulge in a mouthwatering array of international dishes, action stations for a la minute cooking, and refreshing drinks at the FEAST ON FRIDAY DINNER BUFFET,
served from 6pm to 9pm, for only PhP 750nett per person. They serve their breakfast there everyday from 6am to 10.
For lunch, it is from Mondays to Fridays 11am to 2pm.

From soup and appetizer to carving, main course and desserts, you can have your fill of unlimited gastronomic pleasures which now come with bottomless iced tea and select juices, plus even 50% discount on wine bottle orders!

We had a chance to try their regular spread of Friday sumptuous buffet offerings during the bloggers event and I must say, they never disappoint.
They have 2 interactive kitchen : One is the show kitchen where they cook their pasta, do their carving and sometimes they have the grill station located on that spot.

This is a house special salad but you can always opt for the regular salad with the basic dressings, just make a request to Chef Michelle and she will make one for you. 

This is a thick soup with a very long process to make it great. If you have allergies, executive Chef Jesse Factor advised not to have a taste as the richness of seafood like crab fat (aligue), shrimps, plus she includes a special ingredient to take out the "lansa" of the fish taste.
Tomatoes were added so it was kind of sour and shrimps to make it salty, and finishes it off with butter to gloss it and cream that balances everything out.
This is not the regular soup however. They have a cycle and changes every Friday. But they are trying to make it as international as possible

One of their best-sellers. They sell the product at their booth located at their lobby.
All their breads are made at Richmonde Cafe. They don't purchase anything from outside. 

Chef June is Chef Jesse's co-kitchen and she asked him to help her fix up the dinner that night. He made this Spanish Sardines with pickled onions.

They try to get away from mayonnaise since its summer because of the heaviness content so she makes it as fresh as possible and vinaigrette is her number 1 choice

 One of the pastry chefs in Richmonde Cafe is Chef Angel. She takes care of the fruits, desserts,  halo-halo station and the rest of the sweets.
She also did this yummy soft chewy cookies that they will be launching soon



They also offer all-you-can drink juices

Rouladin is a very famous polish dish. A beef striploin that sliced really really thinly then pounded it well and inserted a pickle and roll it back again and then seared it and put in a beef broth with different types of mushroom with it.
When the beef is cooked, they take it out, take the broth , reduced it some more and add some demi glace with it
