Mexican buffet experience at Crimson Hotel Filinvest City

Last May 3, 2019, we visited Cafe Eight at Crimson Hotel Filinvest City for their monthly international food special, for the month of May, their resto features the Mexican cuisine from May 3-11, 2019. This is not their first time to offer a Mexican cuisine, I always know that Cafe Eight offers this every year and its one of the best food cuisines at their buffet stations.

For a rate of PHP 1,470, you can enjoy a Mexican food buffet per person, plus you can enjoy unlimited Mexican beers just in time for Cinco de Mayo celebration.
