I had the chance to finally try NIU by Vikings with my fellow foodie Lovelee.
NIU is the upscale buffet concept of Vikings, the fast-rising buffet restaurant brand in Manila.
Upon entering the restaurant, it felt like we were transported to a posh hotel. The staff was very helpful in assisting us to our reserved table.
Vast seemed like an understatement to describe NIU's buffet spread.
There's a lot of choices for freshly-baked bread, cold cuts, cheese, salad, and other appetizers.
There's also a noodle station, sushi and sashimi station (my favorite), yakitori and teppanyaki station.
There's also a grilling station, where you can choose any fresh meat or seafood to be served to you.
Another favorite is the carving station. :)
I don't think I still need to explain why. :P
Western cuisine is also present. There's a pasta, pizza station and lovely choices for Spanish dishes.
In that area is where you can request for foie gras. Yes, foie gras is available during dinner service.
Since I loved the desserts on my visits to Vikings, I expected I would feel the same with NIU, and I wasn't disappointed. In fact, I was overwhelmed. :)
There's a pastry station, halo-halo station, Filipino desserts station,
There are frozen yogurt and chocolate fountains. Not to miss is their homemade gelato station.
NIU by Vikings also has lots of choices for drinks: fruit juices, smoothies, coffee, tea, cocktails, and a roving wine cart.
Here are a few of what I had that evening:
NIU by Vikings is worth visiting. The service is top-notch and very personal (don't hesitate to ask the staff to assist you with anything you need) and the food was superb. Overall, the quality of NIU by Vikings can surpass the quality of a popular hotel buffet. I would love to go back here soon. Don't forget to call for reservations should you visit.
