    Yes it's a good buffet, I'm referring to the Boston/ Maine lobster with claws, Mikey vid only shows the spiny variety of lobster, but that's still good.

    @sir raypin , how was your experience at Fresh. I tried the brunch buffet at Nobu yesterday, not your usual Japanese buffet. No tempura, no sukiyaki, no sashimi, they serve Nobu"s new style sashimi and tiradito, and crusted roast beef that is cooked on tepanyaki table. They have good fresh oysters and nice desserts. At regular brunch rate(almost 3k) not "sulit" Imho. Got discounted rate from metrodeal, so pwede na.

    Mm....disappointed.Fat curacha were aplenty but the Boston lobster were nowhere to be found. I had to request the older guy in the cooking station to bring me some. Two Boston lobsters nga but it seemed to have been poached sometime ago so the meat was rubbery. Did not ask for seconds. The veggie medley was oversalted. I wanted good brocolli, one of my favorite cruciferous. Mas maalat pa sa Pacific ocean. The carving (roasted top sirloin) was good (very tender). I wanted pork but I stuffed myself silly with the free-flowing juice and vodka mule.

    Love the Caesars.....they use high-quality anchovy fillets....definitely not the canned ones from the supermarket.

    Service was excellent.


    Just looking at those hardened my arteries:

    Solaire is aging very well. It still looks and smells like new.

    p.s. no ulang! P.I.

    ^ maybe when you're lucky to be there when some VIP YouTuber is featuring them, that's the time they'll bring out their better ingredients haha. Best buffet should be about their consistency.

    ^The only peeve about Fresh, especially during buffet lunch, is that it’s almost filled to capacity with Chinese, Korean and Japanese players. The only good thing about them is that after eating they hurriedly get back to their gambling tables. Mostly, Fresh staff replace leftover buffet food with new ones if you ask them to, but often they leave the bowls until the contents are gone. The sushi and sashimi section needs some flair, and better choices, to say the least. And once, when we celebrated some event last year, they featured Indian-Pakistani food which was a welcome and delectable treat, although it was rather spicy and you actually smelled like an East Asian the whole day.

    They also now have a vegan corner, for those who insist on vegan fare.

    Any opinions about The Alley by Vikings? I haven't tried it, but I'm always curious about it when I pass by the buffet at BGC area.
