I Ate Like A Viking at Vikings!

Vikings: The largest luxury buffet restaurant in the country today is now open in Davao

New restaurants have been opening in Davao in the recent months, but I have never encountered such hype and excitement for a new buffet restaurant such as Vikings' even weeks before it actually opened its doors last September. Luckily, I was given a complimentary dinner for four which allowed me to bring my family last week. All the questions in my head were answered as I came in by their entrance door. 

Firstly, I have to say that the modern Filipino interior design of the restaurant was simply elegant. With a quick glance of the food all over the place, you'd literally be floored just by looking at their wide selection of their dishes, beverages and desserts.  It was like a huge buffet treat being prepared for all Davaoeno foodies.

Located inside the SM Lanang Premier, just fronting the Fountain Court, they have a large capacity to accommodate 500 guests at a time. Being the first branch outside Metro Manila, this says a lot about Davao as a growing hub for business and tourism.

They offer lunch and dinner buffet daily and the greatest thing for their diners is being able to witness a full live show kitchen across all their seven food stations. You will actually see how the chefs prepare the food and it's really interesting to see almost all kinds of food you can ever think of. The owners of Vikings have conceptualized the idea of showing us Davaoenos a higher level of dining which we never experienced before for an affordable price. Plus, they highlight food from various Filipino festivals. Simply put, if you love to eat good food (read: all you can eat!), Vikings is the best place for you!

And as for my dining experience at Vikings, I have to agree that was is indeed the grandest buffet meal I've ever had. 

Vikings has 3 branches in Manila located at the Mall of Asia, Marikina and North Edsa. They'll soon be opening at SM Megamall, Jazz Mall Makati and at SM Aura Premier.
