The first time I was at Dad's was wayback 1999 when buffet was not yet a mainstream dining habit, and blogging was not yet an online literary notoriety, much less food blogging.
Just today, in celebration of my college room mates birthday, we troop to the place like hungry lions hunting for its prey. Our faces so ferociously beastly that one can literally feel the hungry animals in us when we headed to Dad's Kamayan and Saisaki Buffet.
Last 1999 that I hit Dad's was at Megamall. This time, since we expect a lot of urban zombies to swarm all of the country's malls, we diverted to West Avenue.
Although the building is a little bit of unkempt and surely needs overhauling, the place is nevertheless clean and well-resolved. The set up remained their signature arrangement, sorted with a dedicated section for each buffet type, separation of Dad's, Kamayan, and Saisaki.
The buffet is classified into two dining type, one for not-so-hungry lions with Blue Plate. And the other for the staunch hungry pride with White Plate, they call it Ultimate Buffet where you can crisscross at all sections. Although I forgot the price for the Blue Plate but for our buffet type, White Plate, it was pegged at Php645 but you are obliged to get their Moist Towel which at Php4 each. And since we don't want to devour gargantuan volume without ramming down our throats, we got ourselves a bottomless soda which is at Php81.
Although it may pale in comparison as it with Spiral, Circles, and Heat, I couldn't complain at its price point.
