Today, we celebrate another union in our family. One of my cousins got married at Manila City Hall followed by a buffet lunch at Cafe Ilang-ilang in Manila Hotel.

The restaurant is quite big and spacious. We are a group of 20+ so we occupied a long table like this one

And here are the photos of some of the buffet stations

I ate a lot of Maki and Tempura, tasted some cheese (I don’t not like Blue Cheese but it’s not something I will eat again and again), and ate lots of sweets! I had to go back 3 times to taste them all. And then I later found out that there’s a Chocolate Fountain at the back part of the dessert station. Sheesh!

the last ones on my plate

I wasn’t able to take photos of all the buffet stations because I was so overwhelmed with all the food in front of me. But aside from the photos I have taken, Cafe Ilang-ilang also has Seafood station, Filipino food, Steak, Breakfast station, an area with burgers and hotdogs, Chocolate fountain, ice cream station, and Filipino desserts at the dessert station. I enjoyed everything I ate. I don’t feel so full but my taste buds are satisfied. We had a pleasant experience at Cafe Ilang-ilang. The staff is courteous and very attentive. By the way, my cousin used Metrodeal Vouchers and we never had problems using them.

It was such a fun day for all of us. We enjoyed taking photos of the food and tasting all of them. I feel so lucky to be with my family – a family who loves to eat. Thanks to my cousin and her just-wedded husband for the very generous lunch. We wish you all the best in your married life.
