Food Exchange Manila is a fine-dining buffet restaurant located at the lobby area of Novotel Araneta in Cubao, Quezon City. Classy and elegant interiors plus comfortable seats add to a great dining experience.
Its buffet spread brings international dishes from other foreign countries. They have Japanese, Chinese, Italian, Filipino and Indian cuisine to choose from. There is a variety of bread, pastries, cheeses and salads to start with, located at the left wing. The full length aisle of cheesecakes, pannacota, waffles cones, ice cream, dried fruits, nuts, gummy bears plus the chocolate fountain was hard to resist. The fondue section is a huge hit with the kids! Their extensive desserts line up included halo-halo, palitaw, puto bumbong and churros!
The salad section had a good array of sauces, vegetables and condiments. On the same aisle lies pizza and pasta section, wherein diners can make their own. Each member of our family has unique preferences and so we were happy with our choice of good eats.
Alongside the Japanese cuisine are sliced fruits. Diners are spoilt for choice of fresh drink concoctions and so much more.
I started my meal with a choice of noodle soup. I like seafood a lot so I handed a plateful of prawns and crabs to be sauteed in butter and garlic. I find it gratifying when the buffet spread belongs to one of my favourite gourmet delights. I went on to their carving station and had my fill of morcon, boneless lechon and peking duck.
My husband likes spices and so the North Indian cuisine section at the Food Exchange was such a big hit for him. He had his fill of masala, biryani and other appetizing curries. He devoured his delectable Indian Dishes with roti prata!
If you love Indian dishes then the Food Exchange Manila is a good place for you to indulge in these treats.
Overall, our dining experience at the Food Exchange Manila is for the books. Holiday and Sunday Brunch is definitely a steal at P1588 nett! This includes unlimited sparkling wines and cocktails. Children 12 years old and below eat for free. Call them for reservations soon!
