Salt Restaurant: 5-Star Breakfast Buffet (Clark Pampanga)

Pampanga, Philippines

The best perks of staying at Widus Hotel and Casino is having the complimentary breakfast buffet at Salt Restaurant.  Upon entry, I was already excited by the numerous diners who seemed happy with their breakfast.

Salt Restaurant has a grand interior that is befitting for the main restaurant of the first and only five-star hotel in Pampanga.  Its a 120-seater restaurant with half of the area allocated for its buffet selections.

I have only tried a few hotel breakfast buffets.  But, as of the moment, it has the widest breakfast buffet selection I have ever encountered.  The buffet is offered from 6 am to 10 am.  Staffs will inform you at around 15 minutes before 10 am that it is the last call.  Gosh! I was so giddy when I saw the frozen yogurt machine. Now, shall we proceed...


Cereal Station

Cheerios and Fruit Loops
Pastry Station

Hard Rolls, Pan De Sal, Ensaymada, Mini Croissant, Blueberry Muffins and Danish Pastry
They have a lot of pastry selections from the basic breads to the sophisticated danish ones.  I tried the Hard Rolls and Blueberry Muffins.  They have this cool rotating toaster where you get to drop your pastry and see it toasted and drop at the other end.  I used that for my rolls assisted by a staff.  That's another plus for Salt. All stations have an assigned staff so assistance is instantaneous.

Pastry Spread

Chocolate Syrup, Peanut Butter, Blueberry Preserved, Strawberry Syrup and Orange Marmalade
The popular choice, as I noticed, is the Chocolate Syrup.

Cheese Station

Salad Station

You can make your own salad or choose a salad already prepared.

I opted for the Apple Salad which has a mix of red and green apples which seemed like a great choice as it was delicious!

Kimchi Station
The Kimchi is really good.  I guess it has to be as the hotel is partly owned by Koreans and most of their clients are Koreans.

Waffle and Pancakes Station
There is an interactive Waffle and Pancakes Station were you can have freshly cooked waffles and pancakes and choose from honey or maple syrup (I'd like to note that it was an excellent Grade A maple syrup).

I loved my Waffles which I drizzled with maple syrup that I had to return for another. 

Dimsum Station
I have a really high standard when it comes to Dimsum.  I am rarely impress with dimsums served in buffet.  Wow!  Their Siomai is really good.  It belongs to the league of top-notch expensive Chinese Restaurants like Li Li's Restaurant or Gloria Maris.

Shabu Shabu Station

At the Shabu-Shabu Station, you are entitled to chose you toppings and sauces and then hand it over to the chef so he can cook it in their flavorful broth.  You can come for it after a few minutes.  I'm really glad they have this station. =)

This is one of the best Shabu-Shabu I've had.  Their ingredients are really high quality.  I think this is at par with Tao Yuan and other Hot Pot specialized restaurants.

Main Course
Here are some of the main course, which I didn't get to try.  Others are on my plate. =)

Frozen Yogurt Station
As for the Frozen Yogurt, unfortunately it ran out at 9 am.  The staff informed me that they had no more plans of refilling since its an hour away from the end time so I missed it. =(

Fresh Fruits Station and Juice Station
