… An array of various dishes was on display at the buffet counter. You’d be confused which to get first. Three hot pots of soup lined up the counter; Bulalo, Tinolang Manok and was it Guinisang Mongo?. Not sure. I only sampled Bulalo. I liked it because it’s really hot. Then I came back for the main meal. Although there were Dinuguan, Adobo, grilled liempo and Lechon or Roast Pig as among the many dishes offered at the buffet counter, my choices were limited coz I don’t eat pork. I just indulged on the grilled seafood like squid, boneless bangus, catfish and grilled chicken as well. Thankful that there’s seafood Kare-kare, Guinataan and Bringhe. For dessert, they have Maja blanca, leche flan, marshmallow, fruits, chocolate fondue and other sweets which I didn’t had the chance to taste coz they quickly disappeared from serving trays and I didn’t bother to wait for the serving plates to be refilled. …

You might be wondering why else I’m disappointed with Cabalen in Trinoma. First I was expecting a wider variety of main dishes. Second, the dishes were all bland for our taste. The only ones I enjoyed was the Bopis and Pancit Bihon. The rest were lacking in flavor. Even their Ginataang Alpahor was flat. Their beef in their Kaldereta was tough, the fried chicken was overcooked. *sigh*
The service crew was also slow at refilling the servings. We, along with a couple other diners, had to follow up 4 times to refill the Tempura and some of their other dishes. Ken even had to wait for about 10 minutes before they can refill the marshmallows for the chocolate fondue! Seriously?!
