I can’t believe the past week just flew by so quickly! 😦 Time really does fly so fast especially when you’re having fun I guess. Now another weekend is about to commence and a long one for that matter so before another set of adventures come along I would have to deal first with some of my backlog from last week’s happenings and events.
One of those was the filling buffet spread which I indulged myself into. Located strategically along the confines of Wilson Street. 7 Flavors would surely give you the bang for the buck.that you deserve especially if you’re eating out with your friends 🙂
So just last week I was cordially invited by Aldous from Aldous Ate The World to sample the finds in this quaint restaurant called 7 Flavors. I wasn’t really keen on the name so of course the next best thing that I did was to google it up and lo and behold what I found were a treasure trove of food reviews and some photos of the sumptuous delights they offered. So I immediately said “Yes” to the invite. I mean, come on who doesn’t love great food right? Especially when it’s concocted by one of the most known Chefs in the Metro. 🙂
I first met Chef Boy a few years back in one of the studio events of GMA 7 wherein they asked some food bloggers to join in on their set of “Idol sa Kusina” with Bettina Carlos. He was really down to earth and nice back then since he narrated to us his humble beginnings and how he clawed his way out of poverty through sheer hard work and perseverance. Now that’s a success story right there! 🙂 From that day forward he had served as one of those inspirational people in my mind which exemplify clearly the saying that “Nothing Worth It Ever Comes Easy”
7 Flavors, co-owned by GMA’s Chef Boy Logro, is actually a buffet, a cafe and a bakery rolled into one space address offering a wide selection of dishes according to one’s type of craving. To define its name, dishes revolve around 7 flavors: sweet, sour, bitter, salty, spicy, astringent and umami. There is no definite cuisine as all the recipes are paralleled to a fusion style or could be dubbed as internationalcuisine.
The recipes at 7 Flavors are all developed by Chef Boy Logro himself so imagine my excitement to devour and taste everything in the buffet! 🙂
Hey, I wouldn’t have become a food blogger in the first place if it wasn’t my innate love for food right? 🙂
The buffet costs around 600 per head and here are some of those dishes we tasted that night.
To be honest, it was overall okay for me however perhaps they could improve and deliver more exciting new dishes which will whet up the appetite of their guests even more because even though their dishes are authentic I guess I was looking for something a little bit off tangent or maybe something new.
The service was overall great although since there were a lot of people that fateful Friday night the staff needed a little more following up on. But in all fairness, the dishes were continuously refilled. I guess for the price you are paying, this could be a good idea for a simple dinner venue with your friends perfect for your GNO’s .
