IMPRESSIONS Sunday Brunch Buffet - A Foodie's Buffet Favorite :)
IMPRESSIONS by Maxim Hotel has an interesting Sunday Brunch buffet strategy -- they only have 3 stations (hot, cold, and dessert) that serve limited but high quality food using only the finest ingredients in the buffet.
Foodies love it because it is not overwhelming but satisfying, and you can savor each of the carefully curated item in the buffet by Chef Cyrille Soenen also known as Cicou. Also, foodies love the live stations where the food is only cooked or prepared upon order -- as many as you like.
Here are some tips to enjoy the Impressions Sunday Buffet and highlighting our favorites:

Tip: Take advantage of the great wine selection in Impressions. I suggest you go for the buffet with the wine included or upgrade your buffet with the wine-all-you-can package if available.

Overall, we love the attention to quality in every dish that is cooked or prepared upon order. We enjoyed the seafood and dessert selection the most and not much of the meat carving. What makes this buffet special is the extraordinary attention of the servers who are always ready to serve you with a smile.
It is an affordable luxury that every foodie can enjoy specially when celebrating special milestones and events like welcoming the new year 2013 :) It's one of the best Sunday Brunch Buffet in Manila!

P.S. Kids under 12 eat for free for every 1 paying adult :) Although, I don't think it is as kids friendly as the other Sunday brunch buffets.
