Five minutes away from Eastwood, in Katipunan Ave, in front of Ateneo de Manila University, you’d find Gillian Gail Desset Buffer. At P299 per person, inclusive of coffee, tea, and unlimited ice cream, it is a terrific bargain. Add P20 for bottomless iced tea, or add P100 for dessert inspited rice toppings.
But let me rave about this in as few words as possible ( and with each picture worth a thousand words ).
Round 1 with cookies, pretzels, cupcake and tasty bites.
Round 2 consisted of dessert cups with nuts, chocolates, and fruit preserves,
Round 3 is a healthy mix of assorted fruits – papaya, watermelon, apple and kiwi
I was with the family, so we did share some stuff: crispy palitaw, banana bread, creme brulee and turon. The crispy palitaw was superb, but the serving was too large for a buffet place,
The nachos were light and crispy, and I thoroughly enjoyed the cheese and Jalapeno
There were several cake choices. I was full already, but who could resist a slice of moist chocolate cake?
I always end a buffet with at least six scoops of ice cream. Here’s four of my six ( Selecta vanila and Selecta Super Chocolate) scoops. There were lots of topping options, but I didn’t use any, because I remembered I’m on a diet!
And my pinipig crunch.
And finally, my Choco-Hazelnut Cornetto.
A bargain at P299!
