Enter the land of sweets at Spectrum’s #SweetSundayBrunch
Posted on

“I love your job, Mommy,” Ben told me as we had lunch at the Raffles Makati last Sunday.
When Ben was little he used to complain, why didn’t I go to the office like other moms?
Cause I used to work at home. And now that I have office space and the kids are older, they understand that yes Mommy is working, and Mommy has a fun job.
We’re lucky we get invited to go places and dine at the Raffle’s Spectrum buffet.

Last Sunday we were there again to sample their Sweet Sunday Brunch, which offers a lavish spread of international dishes along with so many colorful sweets using Lindt, Ghirardelli, Valor and Haribo products, among others.
Two giant Haribo gummi bears will greet you at the entrance. Don’t you wish you had these at home?
The boys went nuts.

Decisions, decisions…

At the Spectrum buffet, I usually start with the crunchy salmon skin roll. Just look at this spread.

I also look forward to lechon, but you have to come early unfortunately. My boys got the last cuts of skin. I went for la paella instead.

They have amazing food stylists. The salad bar almost looks like a farm.

Fun food meets Lego at Spectrum’s Awesome Sunday Brunch
Posted on

When I was growing up, one of the things I really enjoyed was going to hotel buffets with my family—usually on special occasions.
Now that I have my own kids, we go to them more often—sometimes when there’s a special deal, something to celebrate, or on weekends when we feel like it.
One of our top three hotel buffets in Manila is Raffles Makati’s Spectrum—first because Raffles is our family’s favorite staycation hotel in Metro Manila, and second because Spectrum has a nice buffet spread that’s not too wide and confusing and has a selection that our Dutch relatives can relate to (read: AFAM friendly).

Last Sunday we were extra excited to go because of the Lego Awesome Sunday Brunch that’s on until March 2015.
Upon entering, a special display of Lego goodies will welcome you at the kitchen window.

I started instead with a great combination of lechon skin and paella. I love that they didn’t chop the lechon into small pieces babuyan style. You can cut your own skin using the tongs provided.

Here’s the real reason why I love Spectrum—crispy salmon skin rolls!! I’m still thinking about it. I regret not having more
