A Night at the Spiral Manila: Grandest Buffet in the Metro

They say that the best things in life are free! Guess we're lucky enough to have experienced said to be Asia's one of the grandest buffets ever: the Spiral Manila, located at Sofitel Philippine Plaza in Pasay City; and it's all for free! Yes, we've got 4 Spiral Manila Dinner Buffet Vouchers courtesy of CDO Danes, which they gave out as a grand prize in one of their online promos wherein my father and I joined and won. Just in time to celebrate Tatay's birthday! Thanks you Danes Cheese! ♥

Not all buffets are created equal and Spiral Manila could explain why.=)

Spiral Manila is loud and proud of its 21 Dining Ateliers- from French Cuisine, Asian, Indian, name it and most probably they have it! My family and I have always been buffet fanatics and I'm telling you, I've never seen this much food selection before. My eyes literally went full of the choices! Spell variety, whoah!

Receptionists and other staff were all accommodating. I personally loved the couch where we were seated. They're so comfy and spacious- desirable for us who value privacy while taking meals. At least others won't see my big bites, haha!

Like we always do in a buffet, we got an overview of the food's array first before actually getting our plates and filling them up with each kind. So let's see what they've got there:

Pizza! Oven-baked cheesy pizza!

How about lots of bread?

For Japanese food lovers, don't be sad! They've got treats for you too! Sushi, Sashimi, Maki and different kinds of Tempura are also in!

Swim into the goodness of these freshly-served oysters, gosh, oysters! There are shrimps, mussels, crabs and lobsters too. Oh, you can also have them baked should you want. Just a little request would do.

Paella.. oohh lala! =)

Have your pasta cravings satisfied. Top them with sauce, meat and garnish of your choice.

At the Asian Station, you could find pansit, stir-fried pork, beef or chicken and vegetables, pork asado pie and a lot more! Well, my favorite "butchi" catched my attention. Filipino dishes are also there like sinigang na baboy and of course, adobo.

Their carving station is a gem! Beef's so juicy and tender, so as the lamb's meat. Best paired with their peppery gravy.


Spiral experience wouldn't be complete without visiting their famous Cheese Room! Yey! This is typically heaven on earth! Now I understand why this is the most raved about feature of Spiral Manila.

In the same room sits a pile of aged hams and meat: rosette is one of my favorites!

Just a few steps away from the Cheese Room rests another set of different herbs and spices.

Sweet tooth alert! Of course we saved room for desserts!

My husband decided to end his day with a cup of coffee. By the way, upon sitting, customers are informed that the only free drinks that go with the regular buffet rate are iced tea and coffee, others would be separately charged. Our vouchers include all drinks and wine though. =)

There you go! Feeling hungry now? Visit Spiral Manila and treat your tummies!

'Till next time guys!♥

Life's Fun and Easy with Sodexo GC!

"Nothing in life, even a few broken bones, is without its reward"- John le Carre

I was a former Restaurant Manager in a fast-food chain before I decided to be a full-time homemaker.

Few years back when I was still working, my employer, KFC Philippines awarded and rewarded its Top Performing branches, together with the management for the "Highest Up-Sizing Category"- in the form of Sodexo Gift Certificates!

I felt so blessed that my store was included in their list for four consecutive quarters and with that, I got to take home a total of P10,000 worth of Sodexo Premium Passes.
(Pagkaabot pa lang sakin beshy andami ko na agad naisip puntahan at bilhin. Excited?)

To be recognized itself was already a rewarding experience for me. But wait, there's so much more to that! What could be more "rewarding" than a reward? My Sodexo GC's will tell it all.

My Most Rewarding Experience with Sodexo Gift Certificates:






Food is life, and when I say food,I mean buffet, haha!

Yes, my family and I were able to indulge in a feast, just like full-blooded Kings at Vikings SM Mall of Asia branch using my Sodexo Premium Passes!

It was fun and filling, and we really enjoyed such bonding. Plus, our tummies were the happiest at the end of the day. LOL!

What's in it for you: Sodexo Gift Certificates are accepted from over 10,000 merchant outlets nationwide! Wow, that's a lot!

If you have one and you still have no idea on where you can use them, see the list of their partners here:


Shopping isn't really my thing but when it comes to my daughter's stuff, I don't hesitate to spend.

Good thing I had those Sodexo GC's with me on her birthday, I was able to buy some clothes, shoes, toys and other kiddie things for her from SM Department Store and Toy Kingdom SM San Lazaro.

Uh-oh, wallet saved!






Groceries, yay! Hep hep, Sodexo GC's can also be used in SM Supermarket, and that favored my side, hehe!


(Ipinang-grocery ko na 'yung natira beshy, bago ko pa maubos sa pagkain!)

What I like most about Sodexo Gift Certificates is that they have always been and forever will be VALID; re-validation and replacement of these are free of charge once the validity is reached.

That means, you can buy whatever your heart desires without the need to hurry!
(May FOREVER kasi sa Sodexo GC's!)

So those are my amazing and rewarding experiences using Sodexo Gift Certificates!
How about you guys? We're excited to hear yours too!
