Pigging out at Dads Ultimate Buffet

Dads Ultimate Buffet is actually the crossover of three famous restaurants of the 70's, 80's and 90's those are Kamayan, Saisaki and Dads owned by the Triple V corporation. It was renamed to satisfy the new generation customers.

Kamayan's Lechon
Kamayan is an iconic Filipino cuisine restaurant where you can taste a lot of delicious dishes that can be found from different parts of the Philippines like Laing from Bicol, Lechon from La loma or Cebu, or a Caldereta cooked from home and many more. I remember it well when I was a kid they used to have a prepared hot towel for the customers who wants to eat using their hands. I'm not sure if the customers can still ask for it, but from my recent visit, they don't have hot towels, maybe because it is  already a crossover, what was retained from them is their group of singers and musicians where you can also request them to sing your favorite song in front of your table while you're eating.

Saisaki is a Japanese restaurant where you can eat famous Japanese specialty dishes such as sukiyaki, ramen, katsu, tempura and also sushi.

Dads was opened in the early 90's, I also remember my grade school classmate told me it was a "pang-mayaman" restaurant because during 90's it was one of the famous buffet restaurants in Megamall that serves steak.

So what to eat at Dads? Here are some of my recommendation:

Try the U.S. Roast Beef, U.S. Roast Turkey, New Zealand Roast Leg of Lamb and Dads Ham they are the dishes that belong to carving station. I think these are the highlights of the restaurant. For Chinese cuisine,  I love to eat Siomai! Of course, who doesn't love to eat siomai or any kind of dumplings? Next is Chicken Feet some may not like chicken feet, but I find it savory that is why it is one of my favorite dish, they also have Pork Spare Ribs and Pata Tim which I guess you would like to try.

Indonesian Cuisine is also a must try they have Chicken Sate, Pork Sate, Beef Sate; A Sate or satay is a sliced meats that were skewered and grilled like a BBQ though it is more spicy when you tasted it. Also try Beef Rendang it is good, but spicy.

Their rendition of Mexican Chicken Quesadillas may be simple and ordinary, but I love its taste 

From Kamayan's corner, I'd like to recommend Lechon de Leche, Crispy Pata and Kamayan Pritson. Well, I am not really a fanatic of lechon, pritson, but these were the kinds of food that were just occasionally served at home right? So why waste an opportunity to eat those? 

For Saisaki I usually enjoy eating Sushi, Sashimi and Ebi Tempura which I like the most


Why you should eat at Dad's Ultimate Buffet?
  • It has a laid back ambiance that is also ideal for big family gatherings; Filipino families always like to eat while chatting or discussing and what is more enjoyable is being also entertained by the singers here that brings positive vibes to their bonding. 
  • If you don't want international cuisines there are a lot of yummy Filipino dishes; Unlike other cuisines, they will always showcase the international cuisines but here a lot of Filipino dishes are also being served.
