I know it’s very late, but I’m not going to forgive myself if I’m not able to post our HEAT breakfast buffet experience. We celebrated our seventeenth wedding anniversary at the Edsa Shangri-la Hotel in October 2019. My prior dinner experience with them in 2018 was so disgusting. That’s because one of the employees didn’t understand my reservation and gave me the wrong information. But the disappointment is not at the hotel itself. It was clear in my post that our stay could have been perfect if these incidents had not occurred. Anyhow, we enjoyed our visit last year, and this time I’ll show you the highlights of this incredible breakfast experience in this HEAT Edsa Shangri-la breakfast review.
Luckily, we didn’t experience any problem entering. The staff escorted us to our table. As we were seated, I looked around to find my favorites.
I don’t pick too much food from the buffet—just a small portion of my favorite dishes. As long as there are sweets and pastries, I am happy, but my satisfaction will not be complete without knowing whether there is ice cream before choosing my food. When I saw what I wanted, I was motivated, because at the end of the race, the prize awaited me.
There wasn’t any pasta that day (I was looking for spaghetti or carbonara), but fortunately there was the pancit canton. I’m not a fan of that dish, but I enjoyed it!
My usual selection are the following : pancit canton (if there is no pasta), 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. I swear, I will try it next time.
One of my favorite parts 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 🙂
Well, I was delighted with the breakfast buffet at the HEAT. The only missing food was the cake. It’s only in the Linden Suites that I saw slices of cakes 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 selection. Overall, I will give 4.5 stars.
Thank you for taking the time to read my HEAT Edsa-Shangri-la review. 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:-)
