THE FOOD CLUB: 10 Yummy Things I like About the @TheFoodClubPH (A Review)
THE FOOD CLUB is a well-curated buffet focusing on Western and Asian specialties and promises higher quality food versus other buffets. The selection may not be as extensive as Spirals', but it's definitely good value for the price.
I'm not a fan of buffets that display cooked food presented in a chafing dish. The Food Club buffet is more interactive: you have a lot of options for customization and you can request your food to be cooked on the spot.
Here's what we like about The Food Club...
(Tip: Be sure to reserve the booth in Radiant Orchid color - The Pantone Color of the Year.)
JAPANESE BAR & FRESH SEAFOOD
We like the cured salmon, thinly sliced on order, and with a variety of toppings and condiments.
I love the fresh seafood! You can have it cooked the Asian or the Western way.
YES, you can make your own Tacos with unlimited meat, cheese, and other toppings you want! :)
For wine lovers, make sure to ask for the cheese platter with grapes for your appetizer. :)
Make-your-own Mongolian bowl is always a hit because you can customize everything to your liking and you can put as much meat as you want.
For soup, make sure to get the Sinigang na Baboy. You can also customize it with the different vegetables and side dishes. This sinigang was really good! :)
They have a good selection of meat carvings like Rib-Eye.
...but I love the San Miguel Draft Beer options more. :)
They have Hardy's Wine as part of the buffet! You can drink as much Chardonnay...
They have a dedicated section for desserts, which is as extensive as the dessert section in Hotel buffets.

This is one of the buffets I enjoyed that isn't in a hotel setting. It has a hotel-like ambiance and the quality of the food is better than your average eat-all-you-can buffet. I love the fresh seafood, the interactive customization stations, the Japanese selections, and availability of draft beers and wines.
The Chinese section needs improvement...I wish they had really good dimsum. The Western section could also use more interactive sections and additional international dishes.
Note that they don't answer the phone during the peak buffet lunch and dinner hours, so make sure you make your reservations way in advance.
This is one of the best places to go before or after watching a show in CCP or going to Scream Park.

P.S. Thanks to Cez for treating the Mercato Team! :) Cez's family was one of our vendors in our Soderno Market when we opened in Alabang. Good luck on your The Food Club venture!
