Food + Travel: A Gold-Struck deal at Midas Hotel

I've become the queen of coupon purchases!

My love affair with all the good deals online made me buy some of the most essential and not-so important goods and services. But these hard to pass up offers also lead me into experiencing one of the best dishes in the metro. Other than my Prestige Cruises encounter, I've also managed to buy an All-You-Can-Eat-Sausage promo from eBay Kuponan. I also got the opportunity to buy a few Midas Buffet vouchers from Metrodeal.com on two separate occasions. 

For now, let me start by sharing to you my food affair with Midas Hotel's buffet dinner.

I've been to Midas Hotel twice now. One was in December 2011, and another last February 2012. And compared to what Prestige Cruises offered from their deal, Midas completely came through with their own advertisement. They truly promoted how good a catch their offer was. They were the real deal indeed. 

Anyway, here's a peek at what they offered through Metrodeal in 2012:


Everything that Midas offered, we were able to get and more. We were welcomed into the restaurant and was escorted to our table without having to feel that we just bought discounted vouchers. But what was more remarkable was that for a price of P899 (originally P1930), we got to sample some of the best Asian and European viands. Drinks were unlimited too. Now, I usually don't go for buffets but this was an exception!

Anyway, here are a few snapshots of the tasty dishes that we were able to get our hands and mouths on.. so enjoy!

Different Maki Versions (Not sure if the other pieces were sashimi slices)
The Salad Area
Other Japanese/Chinese Viands
The Bread Connection!!! Didn't get to sample these anymore as we were saving more space for our tummies.
Bite-size Desserts. =)
Dessert area yet again.. 
A plate of salad-goodness -- with slices of beef and a bowl of egg custard on the side! 
Here's the chocolate fountain and a few fruit selections. =)
I got the pink glass that had a slice of strawberry on top of the custard.. its sweet-filling was super yummy! 
My Anniversary Dessert Treat! =)
I went for seconds and got this chocolate-filled glass with actual chocolate bits 
on top, a piece of chocolate-dipped fruit & sapin-sapin.

All in all, our buffet dinner experience was well-worth the money and the long commute (braved Quezon Avenue and Roxas Boulevard despite the rush hour). After having dinner at Midas Hotel, I promised myself that I would go back. And so I did after two months! =P

Explore & Be Free,
Mai

I hope I also get your touch when it comes to coupons. I'm a bit scared of taking deals. sometimes, I feel that it's just to good to be true but looks like this one is a good one.

papaleng said...

Half the price, that's fantastic. The foods are yummy, but I'll stick na lang sa dessert. I'm not into Japanese foods eh.

I've been to this phase once.
The deals are really great, especially when I got the teeth bleaching deal a lot cheaper than usual.
The treats on your deal here is priceless! Nyam!

Claire Rafols said...

Fantastic deal and unlimited buffet at Midas, I want to grab a bite!

Mai Flores said...

Nice review! We've been there before and food was okay but not awesome. :P

Mai Flores said...

My husband is also a coupon addict and will let him read your review of Midas Hotel. Hoping he would treat me there when we have a chance this year to come back to Manila.

Mai Flores said...

Sure you got yourself a great deal out there! I just love all-you-can-eat buffet, I am a person with huge appetite, this should be a must try.. :D

Mai Flores said...

Why do I keep on missing deals like this! Nice for you! Will try Midas one of this days!

Mai Flores said...

Oh my! The desserts are to die for! They all look sooo yummy! And I haven't eaten makis for a long time. D

Mai Flores said...

Wow, it really tempted me to purchase those Metrodeal midas deals but now I won't have any second thoughts. They do have good food after all.

Mai Flores said...

Hahahahaha...indeed sis you are the queen of coupon purchases. It seems I'm next to you but for now I am addicted to GODADDY and TMART coupons from RetailMeNot.

Mai Flores said...

why is everything in bits? hahaha! wala lang, takaw ko lang.

Mai Flores said...

Yummylicious! ;) I've also bought some vouchers from Metrodeal pero those were photobooks :)

Mai Flores said...

Looking at the food selection, Parang it's too expensive even at a discount.

Mai Flores said...

Wow, chocolate fountain! I love dipping everything in chocolate! From marshmallows to fruits to meat! Hehe :)

Mai Flores said...

Sounds like a good deal and great discount. The foods look so yummy!~

Mai Flores said...

Hmm, eat all you can, I like it, i can eat all on the table and come back for more.

Mai Flores said...

Thank you Rochkirstin! So where do you think are the best served hotel buffets in Manila?

Mai Flores said...

Where are you from Sarah? :)

Mai Flores said...

Sofitel, Trader's, Circles (Shang) --> to me, those are the best so far. :D

Mai Flores said...

I haven't been to all those restaurants yet. But I've definitely heard of great reviews. :)

Mai Flores said...

Nice to know that about you. I'm not much of a heavy eater. But my experience at Midas was an exception. :)

Mai Flores said...

Do watch out for it na lang. :)

Mai Flores said...

Same here! :)

Mai Flores said...

Indeed they do. :)

Mai Flores said...

Now, that's a different kind of addiction. :)

Mai Flores said...

In bits para pwedeng matikman lahat.. hehe!

Mai Flores said...

I've yet to buy photobooks too! Just don't know which of my photos are worthy to be printed..hehe!

Mai Flores said...

It maybe expensive when compared to the likes and price ranges of Yakimix or Sambokojin. But I assure you, their selection of food were very tasty. The service was great and the staff were exceptionally nice and efficient too, which was a plus for me all together. :)

Mai Flores said...

You dip meat into chocolate? Wow! What's that taste like?

Mai Flores said...

Indeed Ron!

Mai Flores said...

Hehe.. I hope my metabolism for eating works rapidly so that I can eat as much too. :)

Mai Flores said...

From Davao City.

Mai Flores said...

Cool! I've yet to visit Davao. Baka sa area niyo meron din mga hotel + buffet deals just like what Midas has been offering. :)

Mai Flores said...

Yes, it tastes awkwardly delicious, reminds me of "Molé" less the spice. :)

Mai Flores said...

Sorry, but is Molé a restaurant or kind of food? =P Never heard of it til now.

Mai Flores said...

Cool! Will actually be there this August. :)

Mai Flores said...

We got to avail of this deal too, and while I'm satisfied with the taste of Midas' offerings, they were lacking some buffet staples. But meh, at least we got to eat with a discount XD

Mai Flores said...

Hehehe.. I don't know about the staples but I was completely satisfied! =P
