My recent trip to the “Queen City of the South” to do a pre-opening visit to Vikings Luxury Buffet Cebu was a particularly pleasant one. Of course, much had to do with the amazing company I was with. But another reason why I enjoyed my trip so much was also because of the hotel I stayed in — Movenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu.
Have you already made plans for Valentine’s? If your plans aren’t set in stone yet, you’re gonna want to know what NIU by Vikings has in store for lovebirds celebrating the season of hearts.
I recently sampled the spectacular menu prepared for Valentine’s at NIU by Vikings which they will be offering to guests for a very limited time.
Valentine’s at NIU by Vikings is the perfect way to impress your special someone and set the mood for loooooove. Hahaha! But seriously, these dishes are incredible.
I encourage you to read on until the very end because I have a really cool Valentine’s surprise for you guys down below.
I’m actually not one who would immediately think of Chinese food when heading out to eat with friends or family. It’s not that I don’t enjoy Oriental dishes. It is perhaps because I’m more partial to Japanese and Continental fare.
That being said, who would’ve thought I’d have so much fun food tripping in Hong Kong?!
Just recently, my wife and I together with a couple of close foodie friends (The KTG!) and travel buddies were invited to join a fun and adventurous Hong Kong food tour courtesy of Philippines AirAsia and Vikings Luxury Buffet for their “Dine and Fly” promo – their first ever collaboration which just recently concluded. During this campaign, Philippines AirAsia and Vikings gave free trips to Hong Kong and Malaysia (including hotel accommodations) for three days and two nights to two (2) lucky winners. Incredible, right?!
So, this Hong Kong food tour meant trying out dishes – yes, including non-traditional fare – that have helped define this incredible city. And since I am one who never turns down an adventure or a challenge, for that matter, I was naturally all for it.
Cloud 9 – it means a state of extreme or blissful happiness or euphoria… a feeling like you’re floating on air.
That’s exactly what Niu by Vikings aims to bring to their customers by offering a slew of incredible dishes for their much celebrated first year an-NIU-versary.
Imagine that! It’s been 1 whole year of great food and good times. Boy, how time flies! I guess you don’t really notice when you’re having so much fun.
Speaking of fun, there really isn’t any shortage of it especially now that Niu by Vikings has come up with 9 new signature dishes that are sure to send you straight up to (you guessed it!) Cloud 9.
Who doesn’t know about one of the most well-known buffet restaurant chains in the country? Vikings is arguably the go-to place for family get togethers and various festive celebrations.
So, since Vikings is such a popular food destination, you’re probably wondering why I am still writing about them. Well, simply because one of their newest branches (which I recently visited) has very different ambiance compared to their other establishments.
Vikings at SM Jazz, Makati City has everything you’ve come to expect from this well-loved franchise… except for the maddening crowd. Yup! This particular branch has a quainter setting and a noticeably more quiet atmosphere. Hey, it doesn’t mean that mixing it up with other people while choosing your favorite dishes ain’t fun. Of course it is!
But if you happen to be looking for a place to hangout which offers the same vast selection of delicious dishes sans the noise and body bumping action as you make your way around the buffet spread, then Vikings at SM Jazz is your best bet.
When I visited Vikings at SM Jazz for the first time, its coziness was the first thing I noticed – the place was significantly more comfortable. I didn’t really have anything to say about their spread because… hey… it’s Vikings, after all! This particular branch may seem to be considerably smaller than other branches, but its space sure doesn’t compromise on the overwhelming selection of dishes being offered here.
