Lunch Buffet at "F" Restaurant in Best Western Premier F1 Hotel

Located near the major hubs of Bonifacio Global City is the newest five-star hotel called "Best Western Premier F1 Hotel".  Aside from offering a wide range of luxurious rooms, it also boasts of its newly opened  "F Restaurant" located at the 5th amenity level beside the Pool Side Cafe.

I was fortunate enough to be invited to try the one of the first lunch buffet offerings at "F Restaurant" so I'll share the experience here with you.  Their buffet changes daily and is still at its dry run period so expect some alterations and improvements in the upcoming days.  While we were dining, I noticed F Restaurant's General Manager Chad Davis was entertaining all the guests and welcoming their opinion about their offerings.

F's appetizer section had the most variety among the rest.  From the Japanese Cuisine, they had salmon and tuna sashimi, crab sticks and special maki.  The special maki is pretty good! =) There were a lot of varieties of canepes and salad too.

I'm so glad to have finally had the opportunity to try the flavorful thinly sliced Spanish ham called "Jamon Serrano" which literally means mountain ham.  Unlike other hams, they come from white pigs and are hanged hung in a cool, dry place for 6 to 18 months depending on the climate.

Although F has a seafood section, it didn't offer much.  There was boiled crab and prawns and fresh oysters.

pastry section
Pastry Section
F's pastry section offered a few types of rolls and different types of whole bread. Unfortunately, the pastries didn't seem to have made itself noticed by the guests.  I think it's because the set up didn't have a bread slicing area where you can slice the bread to your desired proportion.  Apparently, I failed to notice that there was a slicing area below the rolls so you have to grab the whole bread and slice it there.

cheese buffet
Just beside the pastries is the cheese section.  I'm a cheese enthusiast so I hope they could add more variety in the future.

lentil soup
Lentil Soup
The only soup option available was the Lentil Soup.  It was delicious!  But, F would certainly satisfy more visitors if they offered another soup alternative.  I'm taking into mind my blogging partner Kurt who doesn't enjoy vegetables as much as I do.  Update: Based on my second visit, they now have two soup options

Shabu-Shabu and Dimsum

They have a Shabu-Shabu (Hot Pot) section where you can choose your favorite ingredients and have F's chefs cook them for you.  They also serve dimsum that includes Sharks Fin Siomai.

It's great that they had a lot of side dish options because Filipinos really have to eat one of these staple foods to be satisfied.

They had more seafood varieties which are pricey if ordered on ala carte!  The Mixed Seafood Au Gratin was my favorite dish of the day!

Roast Beef in Mushroom Sauce and  Grilled Tuna Belly with Dill Herb
When I tried the Roast Beef in Mushroom Sauce, I noticed that it was the same with the freshly carved Roast Beef with the mushroom sauce option.  Except that this was more covered in sauce.

The King Du Spare Ribs was tender and tasty just the way I like it.

F's Roast Beef is perfectly cooked as you can see the tender juiciness of the lightly pink meat.  It's a must to taste  F's Roast Beef whenever available.

Upon arrival at F's Restaurant, the dessert section by the entrance has all the sweet treats displayed to entice you to try them out!

Pistachio and Bitter-Sweet Amaretto
I enjoyed all of their dessert selections!  I love the cakes especially the one with pistachio and blueberry. The ice cream is also very good.  It is so soft, thick and creamy in texture.  The Pistachio flavor is delicious.  The Bitter-Sweet Amaretto is as delicious as the pistachio.  Imagine that cool rich bitter-sweet chocolate with a hint of almond plus the perfect soft, thick and creamy texture gently tickling your taste buds.  Yum!
iced tea
Buffet includes their own blend of Iced Tea
Overall, the experience was good but I'm looking forward to improvements on my next visit.  Perhaps, I shall expect more specialty dishes and interaction from their chefs.  I'd like to note that the servers are very keen in getting the empty plates and are attentive to meet guests concerns.  F's service is the fastest service ever!
