Appetizers to Start Your Feast Right:
For starters, Fresh offers a variety of cheese – Gorgonzola, Manchego, Mixed Cheese, Cheddar, Asiago, and Brie – which go perfectly well with the cold cut options that are also available. Those who are looking for a healthier alternative can indulge themselves in the salad station, where they can ask the chefs to toss your choice of greens and ingredients in the cheese wheel to make it even tastier.
For sushi and sashimi, the chefs at the Japanese station make everything fresh daily. They also have shrimp and fish tempura prepared and fried at the station, so you're assured to have something that's perfectly warm and crispy every time you come back for another round.
Must Not Miss Mains:
The highlight of the dinner buffet, Fresh serves unlimited lobsters which you can have the chefs cooked based on how you like it – grilled, steamed, with garlic butter, or even have it as a Lobster Thermidor. Want lobsters in your risotto and pasta? You can definitely have them by simply asking the chefs at the pasta station for it.
Aside from the lobsters, chicken and other seafood like squid and tuna are also available at the grilling station.
The meat-lovers have the carving station, where they can enjoy a slice of roast beef, rotisserie chicken, or a serving of crispy pork for that putok-batok goodness.
Aside from the seafood and the carving station, Fresh also offers a selection of Asian and Continental dishes, so make sure you save room to try each and every dish from these stations. This includes their dim sum, noodles, Filipino favorites, and a make-your-own bibimbap stations. They also have a number of curry dishes available for those who love dishes that are more on the spicy side.
Head on over to the Italian section if you're craving for risotto and pasta, as they chefs there could definitely whip up a nice dish and serve it to you warm and freshly-cooked. Want to make your dish cheesier than it already is? Just request for them to toss it on the cheese wheel, and they will do so, no questions asked!
Unlike the other buffets in the metro, the rates for a dinner buffet at Fresh is already inclusive of drinks. So whether you want a glass of lemonade or a bottle of draft beer to pair with your buffet favorites, you can definitely have an unlimited fill of thirst-quenchers without paying extra.
Want a glass or two (or three or more?) or red and white wine? No problem, because you can also choose from the four different kinds of wine they have available here, all inclusive in their dinner rates!
Desserts to Save Room For:
Coming from the same chef who plans and heads everything that's served at Solaire's Patisserie, Fresh's dessert station is not something you should pass on during your visit. Here, you get to choose from the cakes, ice cream, fondue, and ice creams (sweet corn-flavored ice cream, anyone?), all of which are made in-house.
While you're there, make sure to have a slice and indulge in their Solaire Chocolate Cake, a rich chocolatey, mousse cake topped with bits of edible gold.
The station also carries a lot of Filipino desserts and treats. Of course, the halo-halo is not to miss, but you should also take note and try the kakanin – biko, ube halaya, nilupak, and tikoy – they have available.
