NIU by Vikings: A NIU branch at the NEW Podium!

NIU by Vikings at The Podium 

The elevated buffet experience of NIU by Vikings can now be savored at the new and upgraded atmosphere of The Podium, Level 5.
posh and classy ambiance 

Posh and classy in shades of pink, blue, purple, gray. Seats aren't just chic and stylish, but are also comfortable too. Chandeliers, fixtures, decorations, and even details on the silverware all make the dining experience truly a grand one!

And yes, speaking of "grand", there's literally a grand piano at the center, yet the place remain spacious. It doesn't matter if you're dining solo or in a group, the ambiance alone can provide you an upscale feel the moment you step in.

The food, of course, a more important factor, are well-selected despite the wide array of Japanese, Chinese, French, Italian, and Mediterranean cuisines.

You may scroll down through the photos below but what stood out for me that I don't normally see in buffets are the cheese and tapas section, the unlimited wines, cocktails, and sake, and the premium meat selections. At the carving station alone, which consists of lamb, turkey, Angus beef, to name a few, you can already get your money's worth (~Php1,500).

My Plates
I usually start with sushi and sashimi when I go to buffets. I know, they're heavy "starters" but I so love Japanese food and authentic ones aren't that cheap. I'm quite satisfied with the sushi selections and they're good. I've seen a lot more selections in other buffets, but it's because that's what they specialize in.

NIU by Vikings has quite a number of dumplings too. The Penguin Chocolate Bun and the Chicken Custard Bun are really cute I almost don't want to eat them!

I had some tapas and cheeses in between just to alter my taste buds. A variety of seafood are also available but I just stick to baked oysters. Binusog na Lechon is savory and the skin is really crunchy! And if you're a meat lover, you can go gaga over their steaks and ribs.

Several selections for dessert: cakes, ice creams, fruits, doughnuts, brownies, even Filipino desserts such as halo-halo and kakanin. But my favorites are bibingka and putobumbong. After all, it's nearly Christmas!

So if you've got Php1,500 to spend on food, NIU by Vikings is the perfect place to reward yourself. The grand atmosphere paired with lavish and hand-picked dishes are sure way to provide that sophisticated dining experience.
