If you are within the area of Ortigas Center and want to try some new restaurant or good food, or if ever not a food, an entire buffet treat that will make your tummy tap down and surrender with a full stomach, then you should try buffet meal that can save you from pricey restos. Buffet is a new trend in the food business and the good thing is that some resto are offering it in an affordable price, it’s a battle between an ala carte meal vs. food buffet, there are restos that serve an all day buffet, dinner, breakfast or brunch, others do merianda buffet, but I observe that many are not happy with merienda buffet, (kasi puro pancit daw ).
But here in Q Bistro, the brunch buffet they offer is not an ordinary meal, its coming from the sorcery and food innovation of their inhouse chefs. Paying a price of Php300 for a platter meal from a resto can be beaten by a buffet brunch for only Php315 of Q Bistro, plus you will be served by their waiter, sitting in a nice comfy chair, enjoy listening a relaxing music and a good hideout for you and your tummy to absorb and repel all stress. Its just you and your food.
Q bistro offers this Brunch Buffet for only Php 315, it includes all brunch meals and breakfast meal at the buffet, juice and coffee are also included, so no need for you to pay other fees for your beverage.
**offered til April 2013
Q Bistro sits at the back of Malayan Plaza, it’s a condo hotel infront of the parking lot of Podium mall,and also right after the Discovery Suite (yeah its another hotel).
Q Bistro also known in offering a series of buffet every week. For example, they have this Roast Beef Buffet priced at Php 425, offered on Tues and Thurs. Mongolian Buffet every Fridays at Php 295 and then the Brunch Buffet at Php 315 only. The Roast Beef and Mongolian are offered every lunch and dinner.
I was informed that Q Bistro’s Roast Beef Buffet and Mongolian Buffet will have a new schedule
I’ll update this with an accurate info. But you can call them at Tel: 706-1668-69 for inquiries.
I’ve been here in Q Bistro last year for their Roast Beef Buffet, you can view my video blog here and check out our lunch treat - www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sys0FVV42SE
Entering the Q Bistro resto welcomed me with this garlic rice and pasta
Herb Chicken and Beef Goulash
Its not a lot of food, but its just right for a brunch buffet meal, Q Bistro’s customers are mostly people who are early practicing running, or have attended marathons, early bird shoppers, and also some hotel guests.
Barn flakes and fruits area
Here’s the ground floor of Q Bistro, I went here with my wife Lace Llanora.
Juice and coffee area
Pasta with sausage and roasted tomatoes
For me it’s a light meal with a heavy impact on your tummy.
Baked Potato and Bacon
Must try… me and my wife love this!! you know that I love bacon, the potato sips all the juices and taste of the bacon after it was bake with it. The bacon stays its original flavor and still more yummier. I love this!!
Fish ala Chowder
Tasty fish, it woke me up when it first landed on my mouth. I didn’t get another one because the bacon already distracted me
For the chicken lovers, I took a bite, but then the next food photo distracted me the most
I love the food when it is beef and tomato sauce, combined them together and you’ll see me targeting this, my 2nd favorite after the bacon thing. I ate another set of this on my 2nd plate.
Barn Flakes honey
Barn flakes plain
Barn flakes chocolate
my 1st plate
with my wife – Lace… looks like we’re on date during brunch time hehehe
They also serve this special signature roastbeef flakes with rice, priced at P205
They also offer some ala carte from their menu, you can order this if you want more food on the table
Arroz Caldo special, the waiter told me to their arroz caldo, because it was special, so I tried it and put some toppings of dried dilis, onion leaves, fried garlic and salted egg. Its my first time to eat an arroz caldo with dilis and salted egg, and it tastes good! I will try this at home next time.
Here’s the Roast Beef Flakes with rice and egg. I suggest that you try a sunny side up egg, it fuses with the taste of the flakes and it will give more flavor, eliminating the crunchy and salty of the roastbeef.
Or you can dip it in vinegar and taste another version of the roast beef flakes. According to Chef Mia, the flakes are all hand powered by them to prepare it for you. Using a machine won’t get the thin cut for the flakes
After our meal, me and my wife got a nice chat with Chef Mia and we learned that they are already preparing for Valentines Day. They have a discount promo for Valentines Day and it is offered at Deal Grocer, visit this link -https://dealgrocer.com/private-sale
They will accommodate at around 30 couples this coming Feb 14, 2013
They will also offer their 2nd floor area for Valentines Day date, a perfect area for couples who want to have a private dinner with their partner.
I also heard that Q Bistro will have a Chinese Buffet this Feb 10, for brunch, lunch and dinner.
Thanks to Chef Mia for inviting us again, I super love hanging out here and my next visit might be on a date with my wife for her birthday.
