That sinful saccharine smell sure won’t be missed as one takes the first step into this resto found at the second floor of Crowne Plaza Galleria Manila. A few steps further would reveal a display counter showcasing an array of desserts: chocolate praline, crème brûlée, cheesecake slices, tiramisu, blueberry muffins, and a whole lot more of those sort, neatly arranged row by row, exhibiting the perfect picture of a sweet tooth’s dream come true.
Beside that was what I estimate as a 3 feet tall chocolate fountain where that euphoria inducing scent emanated, welcoming me as I entered. I am convinced that if Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory was for real, that is how it would smell like.
Be prepared to be satisfied by each of the seven corners of this resto found at the second floor of Crowne Plaza Galleria.
Seven Corners, which name I suppose is derived from the seven stations available for buffet, is adequately spacious. With a seating capacity of about 170 people, the restaurant’s interior exhibits a fusion of Asian and contemporary design. According to David Jamieson, Crowne Plaza’s Resident Manager, Seven Corners’ international buffet consists of seven live-action stations: Tandoori (Indian), Japanese (which includes the seafood section), Western, salad, pizza, Asian noodle, and dessert station. An all-day and all-week dining resto, Seven Corners caters Breakfast Buffet (P928.13 net;), Lunch Buffet (P1287.22 net; from 12 nn to 2:30 pm), and Dinner Buffet (P1475.06 net; from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm).
