Lunch was served at Sofitel Manila’s SPIRAL!


Sofitel Manila Spiral
When you hear the word buffet, I am sure for those who know good food Spiral immediately comes to mind. It’s arguably the best buffet in the Metro! Even this iconic Spiral staircase is so grand and majestic that everyone who dines at Spiral never passes on the opportunity to have a selfie.Sofitel Manila Spiral

Spiral has 21 Dining Ateliers. Atleast 350 dishes (or more) from different parts of the world. If the dish is not available but the ingredients are, they can cook and customize it for you. Because personalized service is Spiral’s brand promise.

Before heading to the buffet area, I started with this delicious cucumber, apple and pineapple juice drink.Sofitel Manila Spiral

In this atelier, juicy and beautifully roasted chickens will definitely draw you! Too bad, my picture got corrupted. 🙁

Spiral’s open kitchen concept gives a delightfully different approach. The labels of most chaffing dishes are deliberately removed so that interaction between guests and chefs are encouraged. The setup also gives you a chance to see how food is prepared and cooked in front of you.Sofitel Manila SpiralDon’t worry, Spiral is certified hazard-free!

Spiral 2 Go
Don’t go home without buying their macarons or chocolate chip cookies! It’s a must try!Notice the bike? This bike is being used by chefs to hand you your morning paper during breakfast. The whole concept was origially part of Spiral’s “Tour De France” theme. It was such a hit that they kept the novelty idea and made it a regular feature long after their “Tour De France” theme had ended. Cool!
If you can’t get enough of what you had, you can bring home some freshly baked bread, pastries or any of Spiral’s premium items.

La Veranda
This section features French wines and cocktails to pair with Spiral’s 21 dining ateliers.Sofitel Manila SpiralSofitel Manila Spiral

For a more private and intimate dining experience, you may opt to book for a dining room.

Spiral has a total of 6 dining rooms with an oriental feel… But still uniquely different from one another. Here are 2 of my favorite function rooms:

Voyeur RoomSofitel Manila SpiralThis room can fit up to 12 people. This room also gives you a peek at the kitchen outside.

Hidden RoomSofitel Manila SpiralFrom the name itself, the room is located where no one would think to find it… At the back of the wine shelves! This room can accommodate 10 people.

Spiral doesn’t offer the same dishes everyday (except for their signature dishes). That is perhaps one of the reasons why this amazing restaurant will make you come back again and again.

See and taste the world only at Spiral!
