Lunch with the Corstens
Posted on

It was the hottest day of the year (so far)—36 degrees outside, and the Corstens were treating us to lunch.
“Indian or Filipino food or something else?” Lia BBMed me prior.
“How about Heat buffet?” I suggested.
Last Tuesday, one of the Top Ten DJs of the world, Ferry Corsten and his Filipino wife Lia, squeezed us in between gigs in Boracay, Seoul, Macau and Tokyo, for some chat and chew.
I didn’t take many pictures of Ferry—even as Lia was feeding him all sorts of Filipino desserts, like puto bumbong (you have to hear Ferry say it, hehe) and cassava—because Ferry would look at me and say, “No blogging.”
And so I restrained myself, because when I took too many pictures of Boy George in Malate, 2005, he finally told me, “That is the last one.” (Oops.)
Back in 2005 my camera was so low-tech.

lolo George

So I took mostly food shots. 🙂
I love Heat buffet because it’s easy, it’s good, and very near our home.
I usually start with a dimsum platter. They have the best siopao asado. Pork siomai is OK. But hakaw tasted old (read: not worth the calories).

Ferry started with this very well-plated seafood selection.

Heat has seriously the best fries in Metro Manila. Ginggay ordered this.

I had the bottles. Cause I love cute sizes. 🙂

I had like two servings of lechon kawali until they ran out—this was so good!!

Ferry’s next plate was what he called the “Protein Platter.”

Jeroen began to notice that I wasn’t paying attention to his food for a change, so he asked me to take a picture of his plate, too. 🙂

I swear, we were there until the buffet closed at 2:30 PM. We left the place at 2:45 PM, at which point I was so sleepy from all the food I ingested.
Finally I could take the pictures I wanted.

Heat buffet is the best! I like it better than all the other buffets who have more selections since these usually fail in the quality control department. Heat buffet’s sushi is good, and whatever is on the carving station is usually panalo! I also chanced upon tempura- style soft shelled crabs there once, and that was so good and fun! They used to serve this baked salmon dish with philly crust on top which was super good, but I don’t see that anymore. I hope they can bring that back 🙂 Also, I love their desserts, but I once saw… Read more »

cecile that mango something salad in ferry’s plate from the sushi bar is super delicious. that’s what I always look for in Heat and usually it runs out all the time
