Nestled inside the busy establishment of Fishermall is a modest buffet named Quezon Filipino + Spanish Buffet. It has been serving various Filipino-Spanish favorites since 2015 and I got the chance to try it out recently. They’re under the same group as Guevarra’s, but this place has since made a name of its own.
Upon entering Quezon Buffet, you’ll think you’ve entered into a modernized early 20th century Filipino dining hall. The venue carries a black and white theme all throughout which I like. It’s simple yet classy. There are grand chandeliers hanging from the ceiling as if ready for a party. And indeed, our buffet was a great salu-salo.
The staff was very courteous and kind. They’re very attentive and will get your plates so you can get new dishes without the unsightly view of dirty plates. The only thing I noticed was that I hope they will refill the food faster. But maybe that’s just a testament to the good food to come.
There are various food stations in the Quezon Buffet. There’s a Salad Station, Mains Station, Sisig Station, Carving Station, Dessert Station, Halo-Halo Station and Drinks Station.
I actually ate a little bit of everything but a few really stood out to my friends and me. Watch out for their Bagnet, Kare-Kare, Pork Binagoongan, Cebu Lechon Belly, Baby Back Ribs and Paella Valenciana. The Gambas bowl was always empty so be sure to be on standby when they refill it. It’s one of their best-sellers. You can also get different kinds of vegetables if you want to make your plate a little healthier.
For the Christmas season, they actually have a few special holiday additions to their lineup. Don’t miss their Pork Morcon, Chicken Galantina Meat Loaf, Pork Loin Pinya Ham, Sweet Potato Casserole with Marshmallows, and Churros.
To cool you down in between meals, you can get unlimited drinks in their Drinks Station. Here, you can get different kinds of iced teas and sodas just to give you a break from all the eating.
The Dessert station also serves some Filipino favorites like Sapin-Sapin, Puto, Langka Maja Blanca, brownies, cupcakes, and even fresh fruits for the health conscious.
I mention the Halo-halo Station separately because it does have its own counter. Not everyone wants everything in their halo-halo glass, so you can fully customize your halo-halo here. And bonus points for their sundae machine, where you can twirl away and have all the ice cream you want.
The food is actually great. They have a wide variety of selections to choose from for whatever craving you have. I highly recommend trying out the Bagnet, Beef Kare-Kare, and Paella. Some dishes were a little dry though, so maybe get a bit of dipping sauce from their Sawsawan station. It would also be great if they made the baked desserts a little better. I liked the halo-halo station though, perfect ender for a big Spanish-Filipino feast. Overall, I think that the rate is reasonable considering the quantity and quality of food they serve. It’s ideal for big gatherings and celebrations, especially if you want a lot of Filipino-Spanish dishes to choose from that won’t break your budget.
