We went to Lamesa restaurant of Asiana hotel to celebrate my friend’s birthday.

Ambiance and Look

It was Thursday night when we visit so the place is bustling. It feels like we’re in the Philippines since 90% of the hungry diners were Filipinos. Most are celebrating their birthdays. How did we know? Screen displays of greetings are seen all over the restaurant.

haven’t got the chance to taste this section since i was too busy with the pork section :p

Food & Menu

Given that Lamesa is an Asian buffet restaurant and we’re all Filipinos, the food selection was a sure win for our taste buds, especially the pork section of course. Crispy pata, Lechon kawali, Sisig – typical Filipino food that will probably bring a high blood pressure. Everything we’ve tried here are tasty. For the main course we’ve tried all the pork variety, seafood, steamed vegetable, beef, chicken lechon. Food selections includes a salad bar, Japanese/Chinese food –sushi, maki, duck, dumplings etc. with the live cook, desserts includes buko pandan, biko, macaroni salad, cakes, ice cream, and a lot of other sweets. The restaurant also offers alcoholic drinks for a higher price.
