I remember the long queue when we were looking for a restaurant in HongKong with this link:  http://inpinaysfootsteps.blogspot.com/2012/01/taste-of-hongkong-din-tai-fung.html  and the line was too long so we gave up. It seems a culture in HongKong to really wait even for more than an hour just to eat in the restaurant of their choice.
Last night, some friends invited me and the places Vikings and Buffet 101 were mentioned. My friends actually preferred Buffet 101 for the more varied choices and more fruits, they said. 
I have been to Buffet 101 several times. But, I read it in the blog somewhere that folks were raving about the Vikings restaurant so I guess I was curious and decided on Vikings.
So here we are in Vikings:
Lo, and behold! The "super-est" queue ever especially in the Philippines!
Well, we found out they were serving No. 5 in a line of 45! Wow! I guess it was practical to find another place. I just had to peek in the place, though!
of course, the VIKING longship!
So, I have to waive the chance to experience Viking's. So, here is our pose for posterity.
We moved to Buffet 101 but I was really wondering why there is no queue at all! I know the place is good! Here is a link to my previous visit to Buffet 101: http://inpinaystummy.blogspot.com/2012/02/taste-of-manila-buffet-101.html
Here is the price comparison:
My experiences with Buffet 101 have all been very good so this place was fine with me. 
They said the ambience was so five-star except for the sounds around with everyone just enjoying the company of their family and friends.
I enjoyed our Buffet 101 dinner and in fact, there were too many excellent choices for our own good!
And, for me, the people we are with, is always more important and the place and the food are the "toppings on the cake" to make the experience better.


  1. Looks interesting place but looks like its crowded. anyway, Akala ko the 'viking' is literally biking hindi pala :D

  2. I have never been to a buffet resto before. But these places actually exceeded my expectation. I have always imagined them to be crowded, and almost nowhere to sit at all. :)

  3. Oh my highschool classmate is working at Vikings. I haven't been there though. Tagal ko na din napupunta sa MOA and I am sure there are big changes na.
