Our family trooped to Mario’s Restaurant right after church yesterday and had a gastronomical feast as we took part of Mario’s Sunday Lunch Buffet.
It was a stripes kinda day for us #TeamAspacio! 🙂
We were ready to devour our soup and appetizers to jump start our lunch. Ooooppps, I think we clicked on the shutter a little too late – our little guy just finished a helping or two of pinsec frito with chili dip.
Sunday Lunch Buffet Offerings
First off, these were up for our Sunday lunch – let us count the many offerings of Mario’s Restaurant for their Sunday Lunch Buffet. We were told that it varies every Sunday but the Appetizers, Mario’s Ceasar Salad and the Carving Station are pretty much mainstays.
I always love the feel of a comfy and charming restaurant. It gives a vibe of home as diners readily enjoy chitchats as they catch up between bites.
Appetizers: Spicy Steamed Mussels and Pinsec Frito with Chili Dip
Assorted Sushi and Sashimi
My second plate was of my second helping of Oysters Rockefeller, Mashed Potato Paella Negra and Roast Beef from the Carving Station.
I don’t remember passing off an Oysters Rockefeller when there’s a chance to grab one. It’s always been a personal favorite. I especially love the fresh taste of Mario’s Oysters Rockefeller. No stench like what I’d get sometimes from other restaurant. The Paella Negra was phenomenal. I swear I was going back for a second helping if not for an already stuffed tummy.
The left side of the Carving Station was that of this robust-looking-but-going-gone-flavorful turkey.
I love that there isn’t just a single mound of meat sitting at the carving station like it usually is in other restaurants. Everything was good at the carving station. I was only able to sneak a shot towards the end of lunch time. The roast beef was a box-office winner, for sure. The Roast Leg of Lamb, too. The Cochinillo (suckling pig) wasn’t so far behind as the only piece that’s left was its head.
For our bunch who haven’t had red meat for a while, this crispy and succulent Cochinillo was particularly hard to resist.
Mario’s Dessert Spread: Chocolate Fountain, Creme Brulee, Bread Pudding, Chocolate Mousse, Crunchy Peanut Butter Bars and Yema Cake.
