Pick your choice of greens from a row of salad jars, indulge in a guiltless vegan lunch, or have your fill of seafood as Feria at Radisson Blu Cebu infuses its buffet with diverse and new pleasures to turn everyday dining into a feast.

Some customers are very particular about their food choices and Feria, in response, has added a counter that displays purely vegan dishes, said Princes Anderle, Radisson Blu director of marketing communications.

The salad in a jar section, which holds a selection of fresh veggie mixes in single-serve containers and even more dressing choices, provides additional healthy options, she added. The noodles in a jar counter, where you get to pick your favorite combination of noodles and ingredients from several choices, follows the same concept.

Every Day Is A Feast holds true at Feria with its Seafood Mondays, Hearty Tuesdays, International Wednesdays, Mediterranean Thursdays, Surf and Turf Fridays, Oriental Saturdays and Filipino Feast Sundays.

The lunch buffet from Monday to Saturday and dinner buffet every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday cost only P880 net per person and already include free flowing drinks, according to marketing communications assistant Christine Estrella.

WIDE CHOICES. In this line are vegetable samosa, pork chops, lamb tikka, grilled fish, and roast chicken.

Always something different

She added that with the offerings that change from day to day, there is always something different in the buffet.

Diners can have their fill of seafood specialties like blue crab, lobster, sashimi, nigiri rolls and ceviche on Mondays and get a totally different experience on Thursdays with all they can eat gourmet pizza, fajita, burrito and cheese and cold cut pairings.

Dinner during premium nights of Monday, Wednesday, and Friday is extra special since it also includes free-flowing local beer aside from soda, iced tea and chilled juices.

Feria Sunday lunches

Sunday lunches take on a Filipino theme and are family-oriented, according to Estrella. For P1,450 net per person, you get your fill of local favorites – from lechon, kinilaw and sisig to kakanin and halo-halo.

She added that Feria puts up candy and soft-serve ice cream bars on Sunday for kids and these are on top of the regular dessert offerings.

Yakimix Cebu offers ‘biggest, most affordable’ Asian food buffet

A few days after opening day, Yakimix Cebu is filled with diners attracted to its wide buffet selection. Robert Chua, Yakimix Cebu owner, said they offer the biggest and only smokeless grill buffet in Cebu City at a very affordable price.

A few days after opening day, Yakimix Cebu is filled with diners attracted to its wide buffet selection.

Robert Chua, Yakimix Cebu owner, said they offer the biggest and only smokeless grill buffet in Cebu City at a very affordable price.

The newly opened Yakimix branch at Capitol Square, Escario St., Cebu City is the first in Cebu but the 13th nationwide, said regional manager Chito Manlapaz. There are already 10 branches in Manila plus one each in the cities of General Santos and Davao.

Yakimix Buffet

GRILL. Yakimix offers a wide choice of marinated meat and seafood that diners can cook on the smokeless grill found on every table.

There are 150 to 200 dishes of mostly Asian food, specifically Cantonese, Korean, Japanese and Filipino, in the Yakimix buffet, he added.

Yakimix Cebu buffet rates

Yakimix Cebu buffet rates are very affordable at P499 for lunch and P599 for dinner from Monday to Friday and P599 for both lunch and dinner during weekends and public holidays, said Chua. Your lunch or dinner already comes with bottomless drinks.

According to Manlapaz, the restaurant accepts reservations and can seat a maximum of 250 people. It has a function room that can accommodate 36 diners.

Yakimix is open from 11:30 am to 3 pm and 5:30 pm to 11 pm, Manlapaz said.

Hong Kong chefs Tony Lao, the executive chef, and Ken Diao – whose specialties are Cantonese or traditional Chinese food – take charge of the Yakimix kitchen and ensure that every dish is prepared just right.

Competitive advantage

The name Yakimix is taken from the Japanese word “yakiniku” which refers to grilled meat dishes and “mix” or to put together. It describes the fusion of Asian cuisine that makes up the Yakimix buffet, explained Chua.

Chua said the Yakimix Cebu branch is his first venture in the restaurant business. His company, which supplies fruits and vegetables for the restaurant chain, partnered with the Yakimix owners to put up the branch in Cebu.

He added that his business is related to the restaurant business and even gives him a competitive advantage over his competitors.

Yakimix Cebu buffet selection

WIDE SELECTION. Yakimix offers a wide selection for its buffet.

The reason why they can afford to offer the Yakimix buffet at such an affordable price is because they source food ingredients directly from suppliers, Chua said.

“Our seafood, for example, is from Pasil. Since we buy from the suppliers directly, we have to go there at 2 a.m. If we rely on delivery, the supply would be more expensive. It’s hard but it makes our food more affordable,” he cited.

Since opening on Saturday, May 16, 2015, Chua they already have a minimum of 450 diners daily.

For inquiries or reservations, call Yakimix Cebu at these numbers: (032) 254-7499 or (032) 254-7501.

Good food at an affordable price is what Grand Majestic, one of three restaurants at the Grand Convention Center in Cebu City, aims to provide customers.

With their selection of varied cuisine, iHoldings Inc. president Winglip Chang said they’re offering what Cebuanos are used to in a buffet without them having to pay a lot.

“We want to show that a good buffet doesn’t have to be expensive,” he said.

Grand Majestic buffet

THROWBACK PRICING. When we ate in Grand Majestic yesterday, the restaurant announced a “throwback” price of P195 for the buffet from the regular P499. The restaurant will hold more throwback pricing promotions, which will be announced on the day it happens, in the days leading to the grand launch in September.

Although many of Grand Majestic’s dishes are Chinese-influenced Filipino fare, there are sections that carry international flavors. There’s a Japanese food display, carving station for steak, as well as dessert and salad bars.

Grand Majestic serves noodles and dim sum as well.

Chang said they have full-time food technologists working in the kitchen to ensure the quality of every dish served at the Grand Convention Center of Cebu.

“We make sure that the manufacturing and cooking process follows the standards,” he cited.

The two other restaurants at the newly renovated Grand Convention are Tsay Cheng and Seafood City.

Tsay Cheng is a Chinese restaurant with function rooms where small groups can meet for business or leisure while Seafood City is tailored for travelers who want to experience the fresh bounties of the sea at affordable prices. Like the popular Sutukil (for sugba-tuwa-kilaw), diners get the option of having their fresh seafood grilled, stewed or prepared as ceviche or kinilaw.

Promo campaigns

From today up to the grand launch in September, Chang said they’re running promotional campaigns that include a price throwback for Grand Majestic and discounts for Tsay Cheng and Seafood City. Each of the restaurants can seat around 300.

The price cut for the Grand Majestic lunch buffet, which starts at 11 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m., goes down to P195 from the regular P499. Dinner is from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. and costs P599. Grand Majestic’s popular Peking duck is served at night.

Chang said the announcement for Grand Majestic’s price throwback may be done on their Facebook page on the day that it happens.

Tsay Cheng diners get 10 percent off on their lunch bill until September 15, 2014 while travellers who can present a boarding pass or ticket with Cebu as destination enjoy a 15 percent discount at Seafood City.

Grand Majestic buffet desserts

MICE market

Grand Convention Center can cater to big social events like wedding receptions and birthday parties or host Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibits (MICE).

Chang said they would like to compete in the MICE market and believe their second floor facilities, which can accommodate a maximum of 1,200, are well-equipped for such events.

At P550 per person for a minimum of 300 people per event, Chang said Grand Convention has the lowest charge among similar establishments. He added that although the minimum cost for a function is P165,000, they’re flexible and prospective customers may request for other arrangements.

Grand Convention has international chefs as well and can accommodate food preferences of guests.
