Food, drink

It’s also one of the best priced buffets in town

The thing about the café, the main dining venue at the Hyatt Regency Manila, is that you can’t fall in love with what you like. Next time you visit the place, the buffet offerings will likely have changed. But the good thing about the fast-evolving menu is that, apart from ensuring diners a different experience any day of the week, there’s always a reason to come back and introduce new favourites.

The 345-seat dining area features a chic and contemporary interior.

The café recently resumed lunch and dinner service after a long period of being limited to serving a breakfast buffet due to the pandemic. Buffet stations consist of classics and innovations from Hyatt’s in-house chefs featuring Italian and other Western favorites; Asian comfort food like popular Filipino dishes (during our visit, there was pork menudo, chicken adobo and bisque Tagalog); A selection of Japanese cuisine (California Maki, Spicy Salmon Rolls, Salmon Sashimi); And the “Sculpture of the Day” venue, which is an exclusive dinner.

Meats, breads, cheeses, seafood (the baked salmon section is always a hit), soups, salads and a range of pastries, desserts and fruits. There’s also a snack station with potato chips, shrimp crackers, “twister” fries, and the best chicharrone we’ve had in a while – soft, crunchy and so delicious at the same time. Made-to-order dishes by experienced chefs bring the live cooking scene to life at the restaurant’s vibrant cooking stations.
