I know this is very late, but I won’t forgive myself if I won’t be able to post our breakfast buffet experience @ the HEAT when we spent our 17th Wedding Anniversary @ the Edsa Shangri-la Hotel last October 2019. My last dining experience with them in 2018 was so disgusting not because of the food, but because some of the staff did not actually understand what I booked and gave me the wrong information. The disappointment, however, is not with the hotel itself. It was clear in my post before that our stay could’ve been perfect if those incidents did not happen. Anyway, we have enjoyed our stay last year and this time, I will show you the highlights of that incredible breakfast experience.
Luckily, we didn’t experience any problem entering . The staff was polite and we were escorted to our table. As we were seated, I looked around to find my favorites.
I don’t pick too much food in buffet– just a little portion of my favorites. As long as there are sweets and pastries, I’m satisfied, but my satisfaction won’t be complete without finding out if there is ice cream before I select my food. When I saw what I was looking for, I was motivated because at the end of the race, the prize was waiting for me.
There was no pasta during that day (I was looking for spaghetti or carbonara), but luckily there was pancit canton!
My usual selection are the following : pancit canton, chicken, and egg .
The buffet breakfast isn’t complete without the congee and the element of excitement in combining the ingredients.
Bruce wasn’t in the mood that morning, but a cup of hot choco made his day.
For the kids, the cereals, pancake and champorado are the bestsellers. Too bad, I wasn’t able to try the ube champorado.
One of my favorite part of this eating episode is the arrival of the “Taho and Pandesal Guy.” It’s kinda unusual and cute to find the modern way of yelling “Tahooooooooo!” and “Pandesaaaaaal!.” Take note: the pandesal comes with other fillings, but I picked the chicken-filled pandesal.
And of course, here’s the sweet ending 🙂
THE VERDICT: Well, I was really satisfied with the breakfast, I think what I just looked for that was not there was the slice of cake. Of all the hotels in Ortigas that I’ve been to, it was only in the Linden Suites that slices of cakes were included in the buffet. I hope that there will be a time that all my faves like cake, pizza and ice cream are all included in the buffet. Overall, I will give 4.5 stars .
Til my Next buffet experience @ The Heat! Thank you for taking the time to read this post. I will be posting another blog on the last week of this month because we will be having a tour at the EDSA Shangri-la Manila Hotel on February 23, 2020. I will show you around with the help of Ms. Terylle from the Horizon Club Lounge:-)
