Hapag Kainan

To celebrate our father's 77th birthday, he asked us to bring him to Market!Market ! in Taguig City. We got there early, and the place was busting at the seams with people. We could only go to the National Bookstore to get some stationery supplies before deciding to have dinner.

Our first destination was the open-air food center, but he didn't seem to be impressed with the choices and the location. We finally decided to eat at Hapag Kainan, a restaurant within the area that offers an "all-you-can-eat" buffet of Filipino dishes.

The buffet has a good set of choices; traditional Filipino dishes, shellfish, pork barbecues and even ice cream for dessert. Soda and Iced tea are refillable too.

I first got some crispy fried shrimps and broiled pork liempo. For my soup, I chose the tahong swam (mussels). After this, I tried the Kare Kare, bopis and calamares. I finished my dinner with broiled hito (catfish), deep-fried pork chops, more shrimps, and calamares.

There were still other choices, but I was already so full.I only had enough room for my favorite dessert, sweetened saba.

I should also add that the service crew was very attentive. They were always ready to refill our drinks and take the used plates.

There were four of us and we spent even less than half of what we usually spend in other buffets. Hapag Kainan buffet really gives value for your money.
