For appetizers, I decided to go Asian. I did not know that Cabalen nows offers Asian cuisine in addition to their Filipino cuisine.  For an additional Ph 30 only, you get to savor Asian dishes as well.  This option is available only in 4 selected outlets of Cabalen:  Glorietta, SM MegaMall, Trinoma and Clark branches.

They did not have my favorite sashimi but they had the Spicy Tuna Salad which satisfied my raw fish cravings.  Tempuras were nice serve with thier a little bit sweeter Tempura Sauce.

The selection of Sisigs was a delight.  You can go healthy or go Yummmmmmmmyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! We tried both the extremes when Azrael order the Tokwa and the Pork versions.  Both were really good!  Azrael said that the Pork Sisig tasted like the original Aling Lucing’s original Sisig he tried in Pampanga. Of course, the Fiesta or any Filipino celebrations will not be complete without the “Turkey” of Philippine tradition, the Lechon (Roasted Pig).  They served Lechon de Leche (Roasted Piglet).

The crispy kang-kong is a must try, they make yummy tartar dip for that. They also have great Filipino viand to choose from like Kare-Kare (oxtail cooked in peanut sauce), Lechon (roasted pork), Pinakbet (sauteed mixed vegetables) and other Filipino trademark foods.

Take note that Cabalen buffet serves authentic Filipino dishes but some branches also have Asian selection ( Chinese and Japanese foods) so prices varies. It’s Php 398 for Filipino-Asian Buffet and Php 298 for All Filipino Buffet. Add Php 40 for drinks.

Another review is from the blog He visited Cabalen’s SM Cebu branch on his brother’s birthday. He was very satisfied with the Buffet and enjoyed it very much with his family.

They do offer very delicious dishes as what they are popularly known for. They also offer lechon during dinner. Though, the sad part is they are not very keen on refilling the almost emptied items. My favorites where the battered kangkong leaves, binagoongang baboy, yellow rice(my favorite, though a bit oily), different kinds of kinilaw, kare-kare, chocolate and marshmallows, the pink maja-like dessert and my favorite, do-it-yourself halo-halo.

Would you blame me if I had another round? For only P298, it is well worth the price considering the yummy offerings they had. Drinks aren’t as expensive as I thought it would be. So definitely a bucks’ worth.

Negative Review of Cabalen Buffet from Personal Blogs

Krizza of visited Cabalen with her family during vacations. But she was very disappointed with the service staff at Cabalen Buffet. Moreover, no table napkins were kept along the dinner. This was quite disappointing for her.

We didn’t have a chance to take pictures of some main dishes because it was getting crowded at the area that time. I was a bit disappointed as some service staff were not attentive and never replenish the empty chafing dish on the buffet table right away even after you have already called their attention.  In fact, they never responded with a yes or a no after being asked.  I also noticed that they don’t place table napkins on the table. How do they expect us to get along eating if like that?  On the second thoughts, maybe they are worried that some food items will be wrapped on tissues?  Well, I really don’t know (lol)
