Buffet Dinner at Acaci Restaurant, Acacia Hotel

It was a rainy Tuesday afternoon when a friend invited us for a dinner at Acaci restaurant, a newest buffet dining spot in the South of the Metro.

Located just above the lobby is ACACI, the buffet restaurant of Acacia Hotel.  It offers wide variety of scrumptious dishes, both local and international cuisine for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

I guess Acaci’s carving station is the restaurant’s main feature with its flavorful lamb, tender prime rib and this huge fish served with different sauces for your liking.

It felt like breakfast with so many bread and spreads. There’s seven kinds of freshly baked assorted bread with butter, sun-dried tomato tapenade, basil pesto and black olive tapenade to try.

You will enjoy both Filipino and other Asian cuisine at Acaci Restaurant. I was delighted to see pork sisig, (a spicy Filipino pork dish) in the buffet table. There’s Seared Cod Fish Fillet with Tomato Confit, Fennel and Capsicum Sauce Cajun Spiced Chicken with Pumpkin and Asparagus Tips, Braised Bean Curd with Assorted Mushrooms and Fried Rice with Ham and Vegetables.

It was raining heavily when we arrived so a bowl of sinigang soup comforted us from the cold weather. Here at Acaci, you can choose your sinigang from fish fillet, pork ribs, prawns and salmon belly. By the way, don’t forget to check out the Shawarma and Tacos Salad Station.

Acaci’s soft Crepe topped with blueberry and a scoop of vanilla ice cream was my favorite that evening.

Acaci restaurant offers a sumptuous buffet for only P995 nett (US $22) per person for breakfast, lunch and dinner inclusive of one round of Iced Tea or Pandan Juice which started last July 11, 2012 . A journey of gastronomic delight from local to international dishes and just before we leave, we were lucky to meet Executive Chef Raffy Hubilla. He has been in the hospitality food scene for 22 years and now leads Acaci restaurant.
