Cafe Jeepney @ Hotel Intercontinental Manila

Note: This restaurant / hotel is already closed. 

I got vouchers for a lunch or dinner buffet at Cafe Jeepney, Hotel Intercontinental from Deal Grocer earlier this year. I almost wasn't able to use it. Fortunately, I received an email from Deal Grocer reminding me that my vouchers are about to expire. I bought the vouchers for Php 875 each (original price is Php 1760++ per person). The voucher includes a lunch or dinner buffet and a glass of iced tea per person.

True to its name, Cafe Jeepney is decorated with jeepney paintings, horse decors (the ones seen in front of the jeepney), and of course, a miniature jeepney. :)

Cafe Jeepney offers both Filipino and International dishes plus a variety of yummy desserts.

You can choose from different stations like the Bread Station and Pasta & Salad Stations.

They also have a Carving Station. They were serving Honey and Cinnamon Glazed Ham with Grilled Pineapple.

There's also a Mongolian Station, where you can get to choose the ingredients. Choose Pork Liempo, Chicken Inasal, Maya-Maya and Salmon at the Grilling Station and have them served at your table.

My friend and I also indulged ourselves with the Sushi and Sashimi Bar. I can't remember how many times we went back to this station. :)

Aside from the sushi, we also helped ourselves with the desserts. :)

The Dessert Station is overflowing with cakes (cheesecakes!), pastries, panna cotta of different flavors and many more. They also have a chocolate fountain, fresh fruits station and a Halo-Halo Station. :)

I was impressed on the presentation of the desserts. I love how sweet the mangoes are though it's not in season. However, they don't have an ice cream station. Maybe a sorbetes station would be nice (and more appropriate to the theme).

Overall, Cafe Jeepney was a nice experience due to its top-notch service. That simple gesture of finding our table napkins have been refolded each time we go back to our table was really impressive.

I would love to see Cafe Jeepney introduce more international dishes on their menu. And more dessert choices. :)
