Makati Palace Hotel is seated at the premiere location close to the Makati Business District, particularly at the P. Burgos, the street ostensibly known as the melting pot of Makati because of the sheer number of races converging at the spread of pubs, hubs, and hubbubs. I'm speaking in metaphor but a politically correct term for that are geodetic points meant for leisure, dining, and entertainment purposes.
One of Makati Palace Hotel's dining places is Caesar's Coffee Shop, a place where I stormed at to try out their Italian Pasta Buffet ℅ a groupon voucher I bought worth Php225.
The cafe offers a whole gamut of modern day pasta concocted from the different continental origin. The conflation of this culinary concept surely satisfies ones discerning palates. They have different variations of pasta so even if it's only a pasta buffet, you don't even need to eat the same food twice.
What I have ordered are Pesto in Penne, Capellini Carbonara, and Seafood Marinara. Oil-based pasta, especially the Pesto, has always been my favorite of all pasta type, but my palate was surprised to taste the awesome goodness of the Seafood Marinara. It has the typical Italian sourness and tanginess brand of pasta sauce.
The half of the customers at the time were the lumads(Filipinians) and the other half were Black Americans. Yes, I told you the place is teeming with different racial strata, so a comfort food buffet like pasta astutely fits the dining crowd.
The place is well-lit wit iconic statue at the middle of the indoor waterscape and has an ambiance fitted for a lazy afternoon talk.
Kudos to the outstanding service provided by the staff and the chef(I forgot his name) who made sure that the pasta were served efficiently and sumptuously from their live cooking station.
