Though I eat out often, I must admit that based on experience, a hefty bill doesn't always equate to a full, contented stomach. That's why most people resort to all-you-can-eat buffets, but finding the best of them all takes time and a lot of pig out sessions too! I've only tried dining at Tong Yang and Dads, and until now I always root for Dads!
BF and I headed to SM Megamall last Saturday, why? 2 things. First was that he was gonna buy me my first Fossil wallet, which I plan to really take care of! and Two, is to celebrate because we both have been tremendously blessed lately in our work.
Round 1! Chum and I both stuffed our plates silly with jumbo sized sushi, maki and oh so fresh sashimi varieties that were really hard to stuff inside my mouth.
Let's take a closer look at those gigantic sushi, shall we? Of course you can try and divide it in half if it's really too big for you, but you won't get to experience the awesome combination of all the ingredients melting together in your palate. Forget about being a prim and proper lady for once and eat it whole! Food is always meant to be relished and enjoyed!
I had a sudden craving for nice, crisp pork skin so I asked Chum to get us a plate of Pork Lechon, and he came back with Lechon Kawali. Good enough for me! We ate this with caution though, we didn't want to get all dizzy and have our blood pressure skyrocketing up after our dinner. :)
Taking a break from our Japanese food attack, Chum got other Seafood Kebabs, and other viands I didn't get to taste from Kamayan and Dads for the meantime. The Seafood Paella was for me but sadly it wasn't a hit. It just tasted like rice cooked in a tangy tomato sauce (Though I don't know if the red paella is really supposed to taste like that, the paella negra in Legazpi Sunday Market was much better).
Okay, isn't it obvious we LOVE Japanese food?? :) Sadly this picture of the temaki, tempura and nachos drizzled with 2 type of cheese, ground beef and spring onions turned out crappy no matter which angle I try. Maybe I just did bad plating of my food? What do you think?
There's an area in the Saisaki section of the restaurant where you can pick the ingredients to go in your noodle soup and a chef of theirs will cook it right in front of you. I told BF to forego the sukiyaki because we were already doing a lot of damage by eating a lot of sushi, but still he went. :)
The surprising thing was, the sukiyaki prepared for BF was probably the tastiest dish we've tried in Dads. Keep in mind that they make it a point to cook their food less tasty than you would normally expect the food to be, which we guess would help the diners to not get fed up easily and make the dining experience more worth it. Chum had a hard time finishing his sukiyaki so I helped in a little. It was delicious but I guess it was either we were too full or our taste buds got shocked from the flavor intensity change.
For the final touch we mellowed down with dessert. They did have a lot of pastries and assorted desserts at our disposal, but since we were already full Chum just got a slice of Black Forest cake, marshmallows dipped in melted bitter sweet chocolate and a helping of creme brulee.
I must commend the staff from Dads because they really attend and take care of the diners, our emptied plates were always immediately taken away, our glasses refilled even though still half full, here's the best part, we didn't even have to call and order them to do it! So if you want excellent service, wide variety of food choices and satisfaction guaranteed, head over to a Dads restaurant near you! BF already wants to go back again as of this writing, hehe all I can say is I can't blame him! See you on my next pig out session!
