Five Things About Circles


Circles Event Cafe in Shangri La Makatihas been around for years and (1) it was just my first time to go eat at  last month.

We didn’t know that we had to get a reservation. Good thing we arrived early (very early, actually), so they were able to find a way to get a table for us. (2) They asked if it was okay for us to be seated right in front of the singer. Wala namang kaso sa amin ni Enzo ‘yon as long as hindi judgmental ‘yung singer!  Masaya naman ‘yung thought na may sume-serenade sa amin habang nagpapaka-bundat kami. Nyahahaha! :))

{some of the buffet sections}

We first checked all sections so that we can think of our individual strategies on how we can get our money’s worth. (Well, his money’s. Thanks for the treat, Mr. Trajano!) We went there for Saturday dinner, so the buffet rate is around 2k each.

Once we knew the dishes we wanted to get, we attacked. Shempre, deadma na sa mga dishes na madali lang mabili at maluto sa bahay.

{more buffet sections}

I was too hungry to take pictures of all the buffet sections. Basta, if my memory serves me right, there sections are: Japanese (sushi, sashimi, maki), Seafood (crabs, oysters, mussels, scallops…), Grill (lamb, prime rib, pork, chicken), Mediteranean (make your own shawarma), Indian (sorry, I heavily dislike this cuisine so I didn’t bother to look), Pasta (they will cook it for you), Salads (super fresh veggies, fruits, dried fruits, nuts, cheeses), Dessert (cakes, chocolate fountain, pastries, cookies, fruits, ice cream, sorbet), Bread (didn’t bother to check this because I didn’t want to get full on carbs) and Drinks (iced tea, wine).

{Enzo said I should have at least 5 plates, excluding dessert.}

(3) The 5 things that I liked the most were: lechon— with meat so succulent and tender and skin so crunchy/ salmon sashimi— buttery texture, very fresh/ the salad I made – romaine lettuce, arugula, pecans, dried apricots, smoked salmon, vinaigrette, and blue cheese/ angelhair pasta with fresh tomatoes and mushrooms and olives— very simple, but the sauce was simply superb/ raspberry sorbet— perfect mix of sweet and tart, refreshingly flavorful!

{Circles rocked except for…}

I can’t think of anything negative to say. We were pretty full and satisfied from it. Si Enzo nga nauna pang nag-tapout kaysa sa akin. Mwahahaha! But wait! (4) Yeah… there’s one thing we didn’t like! Something that Circles should consider changing– the salt and pepper shakers! The colors are so close to the color of the tables that we didn’t notice them until we were already having dessert! HAHAHAHA. May masabi lang! :p Seriously, I couldn’t think of anything negative about my Circles buffet experience.

And what is (5) ?

My maxi dress.

{one of the very rare moments that I wore a long dress}

It’s my first time to wear a maxi dress. Thanks to all those who liked that picture on Facebook, I am sure to wear more long dresses in the near future. Also, I am sure to go back to Circles. I wanna bring my parents there. Probably on their 33rd wedding anniversary this January 2013. 😉
