Paseo Uno at The Mandarin Oriental Manila

Goodbyes are hard.  Specially when you've grown accustomed to something/someone/someplace for the longest time.  What on earth am I talking about?  I'm referring to the Mandarin Oriental in Makati.  When news first broke that this famed hotel was closing, everyone started asking why. I myself am not familiar with why the hotel was closing, but we can all breathe a sigh of relief because they promise to open at another location within the year  2020.  Before we bid our final goodbye to Mandarin Oriental's current location, Hubby and I decided to pay them a visit.

Let's start with their buffet selection, shall we?



Cold Appetizer

Fresh Catch. Check out the huge tuna!

Paella and Lechon

Tempura Station

Chinese Station


Carving Station

Pasta Station


Halo-Halo and Ice Cream

Selection of Wines

...with all the selection of food that Paseo Uno has to offer, I've only managed to take one photo of what I had.  Why?  Well, first, the glutton in me was so hungry, I forgot!  And second, I think that among everything they had, this was the best of them all.  Scroll down to see:

Unlimited Foie Gras!!!

Between the two of us, I think Hubby and I must have consumed about 30 pieces of foie gras.  No judging!  It was soooo good!  I did feel a little bit lightheaded after, so I stopped.  Cholesterol levels must be off the charts!  LOL!   

Overall, I wouldn't exactly say that the buffet at Paseo Uno is beyond exceptional.  Aside from the carving station and the fresh pasta, everything else was ho-hum.  But for the sake of nostalgia, I would definitely recommend it.  Good news for you guys too!  From August 18, 2014 to September 5, 2014, Paseo Uno's luxury buffet will be offered nightly at only Php 1950+.   For the price of just a regular buffet, you get to enjoy free flowing wine  and unlimited foie gras, something that is usually offered at a far higher price.  This is the perfect time to make that reservation, because Mandarin Oriental will be closing its doors permanently on September 9, 2014.

Paseo Uno is at the G/F of Mandarin Oriental Manila, Makati Avenue, Makati City
