F CAFE AGAIN (F1 ALL DAY DINING)

Christmas may be all fun and "Fa la la la la la la la la la" but seriously, it could be one of the cruel holidays there is. Oooh yes! Diet all you want and have several hours running at the treadmill... when the holiday spread presents itself at you, you'll lose all  elements of reason and just surrender to the forces of food.

Yehesss... So cruel. 

That is exactly what happened after weeks and weeks of controlling my wild appetite. I thought I was already doing a great job and promised that I will really eat like a bird during our recent staycation at F1 HOTEL MANILA, when  HELLO! F CAFE was serving the Fiery and Frosty Christmas buffet!!!!

How?
What?
Where?
When????

And just like that Christmas won once more and I was powerless over all the hot and glistening food served at us.

Truly... truly cruel!

But I LOVE it!!!!

BWA HA HA HA HA!

F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

On the first day of our staycation, we headed towards F CAFE for our first buffet Christmas lunch.



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

F CAFE may not have a long buffet line compared to other popular restaurants out there but the dishes were exceptional and celebrated the Filipino and Asian flavors!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Their cheese spread may not be as big as a whole room but the delectable favorites were there. I cannot wait to dig in!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

We started first with the appetizers at F CAFE and I was almost dizzy from the selection.



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

What about you? What will you choose?



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA
F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Of course, I know that sashimi was not really the celebrated dish for the holiday season but I just can't help it! I LOVE Japanese food so much I may already be committing a sin!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

AND I loaded up on some oysters.... 



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Plus, I requested to have these steamed lobsters to be fried up with butter and garlic! 



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

I was so attracted to the colorful fresh lumpiang ubod which is usually one of my favorites at home.



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

BUT OPKORS, I'll make room for THE star of the F CAFE buffet.... The Organic Lechon! 



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

You'll immediately get mesmerized once the chef pierces the roasted crispy pig and glorious steam pipes out! 



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

I tell you, the aroma of lemon grass with pork fat was just indescribable!!!!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Too lazy to pick out the bones? Then go for F CAFE's special for their Christmas buffet... the stuffed pork belly with arroz ala valenciana is NOTHING that I've ever tried before!!!

And WOAH... are we missing a lot!


F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Of course, a Christmas spread is not complete without the popular Ham!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

My master Mati helped himself to a lot of food that lunch. He especially pigged out on F CAFE's seafood!


F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

I got 2 servings of the F CAFE baked salmon with cream sauce! The boneless fish was cooked just perfect and was still soft to the bite.



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Upon seeing this platter of buttered spicy crabs, I thought to myself that it WAS  a fiery and frosty Christmas indeedy!




My utoy was particularly drawn to the brown rice seafood paella in the buffet. And yes, it was indeedy a winner!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

The F CAFE food gets a 4 fingers up from the Chinese Adonis! Ha ha ha ha ha!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Finally, we were all able to make up our minds in what to get and sit down to EAT!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

My beautiful seafood salad!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

The fried buttered crabs were finger lickin' good!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Dibs on the crunchy skin!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

The little lords were extra behaved this F1 HOTEL MANILA staycation and did not need much prodding to finish their food. So YEY!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Good thing because the Chinese Adonis and I were planning to stay in F CAFE for a LOOOONG time! Ha ha ha ha ha!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Time for dessert!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

My husband was going for the healthy route and filled up on fruits for his "panghimagas".



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

As for me, the F CAFE bread pudding, fondue, and Christmas log looked so heavenly to pass up!


F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Especially this chocolate dipped strawberry which I lovingly picked out!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

I was happy too that even if Andrei already had plates of food, my picky eater enjoyed F CAFE's leche flan and cut himself a big serving of it!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Our lunch at F CAFE was more enjoyable because of the kind and prompt service of this particular waiter. I forgot his name but he was certainly very attentive to our every need!




For dinner, my boys were all ready and dressed up... with bags.



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

We were supposed to have our BARBECUE NIGHTS at the Canary Lounge but because of the weather, we conveniently stayed indoors at F CAFE.



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

We don't really mind where we'll be eating as long as we'll be having platters upon platters of THIS!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

The juicy and tangy barbecues were served with this flavorful corn salsa that had a lot of bite!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Of course, the F CAFE buffet was still available for our other dietary needs. Ha ha ha ha!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

I was especially curious to try out F CAFE's Mongolian Buffet since I'm a sucker for those mixed in saucy stir fries!





While having dinner, the F CAFE servers headed by F1 HOTEL MANILA Marketing Coordinator, Mr. Paulo Esmedilla, sang happy birthday to our KTG bossman Mr.Spanky Enriquez!

If you wanna see the bash that KTG gave for him, check out his SURPRISE DINNER PARTY from us!



ERICJAZ FOODIES with the little lords at F CAFE All Day Dining!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

My sushi and salad plate!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Which was immediately followed by my very saucy Mongolian Barbecue!


F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

I ordered a glass of Coke Zero to drink which was zoinked by Andrei. 



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

It's okay. I helped myself to a bowl of spicy yet creamy laksa as my "panulak". This was SERIOUSLY delicious!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

And since I felt the night would be better with more carbs, I helped myself to some. 



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

The mini pastries for dessert were the perfect ending to a very "hot" dinner. Of course, coffee was in order.



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

The Chinese Adonis got himself a Bacardi Gold though.



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

I was really impressed with Andrei and how much he loved the leche flan from F CAFE!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

He cut himself a very big serving of it again. I don't blame my baby because that F CAFE leche flan WAS very creamy and had the right sweetness to it. 


F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Just like what we have at home!!!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

My extra dessert plate!




F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

The next day, the kids were up early jumping on our beds. Usually we'll just wave off the little wake up call but we remember it's time for us to have breakfast yet again at F CAFE!!!!

And so we were up!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Even though it was the peak hour at breakfast, the F CAFE attendants were still able to seat us fast. Good thing because we were all hungry!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Mati proceeded to fill up his plate with breakfast goodies and his favorite runny scrambled eggs.



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Andrei headed for his hot off the pan favorites!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

There was also a pot filled with very decadent chocolate porridge. Hmmm... I might help myself to some of this after my itinerary of "silog", "pancakes", and whatever else out there. He he he he he!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

It never hurts to have A LOT of bread in the morning too!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

There was a noodle bar in F CAFE which I could include in the "agenda".



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Another probable candidate are the piping-hot eggs from the omelette stations. 



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

The F CAFE breakfast buffet had the usual morning staples but what got my attention are their few add-ons that somehow made their spread unique.

I don't think I have ever encountered a breakfast buffet offering some Hainanese Chicken!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

As well as Burger Steak with gravy!


F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Things got a little french with the pot of ratatouille!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Of course, my husband got plates and plates of bacon then requested to have it fried extra to a crisp!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA, ERICJAZ FOODIES
F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA


ERICJAZ FOODIES with the little lords at breakfast!

Yep! We're straight from the bed! Nyahaaaa!!!! Please don't judge.



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

My first plate of F CAFE Tocilog!


F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Plus, our VERY CRISPY bacon plate! OMIGERRRRD! Life is now complete! We had 2 plates of THIS!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

To be a bit healthy, we helped ourselves to some all natural ice cold drinks.



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

Of course, I cannot NOT have breakfast without coffee. It would somehow be sacrilege to me. 

Yep. Hell would freeze over if that ever happens.



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA
F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA

F CAFE'S delicious breakfast was enough to fuel up our little lord for hours of swimming. 

As for me and the Yub, we burned all the calories by sitting down and chatting. Ha ha ha ha ha ha!

See? Live THE LIFE this Christmas and New Year's at F1 HOTEL MANILA!!!



F CAFE, F1 ALL DAY DINING, F1 HOTEL MANILA
