I am not a picky eater. In fact, my taste buds are really easy to please. I don't know much technicalities when it comes to food but nonetheless -- allow me to share some of my thoughts whenever I dine somewhere new.
Earlier today, we went to Somethin' Fishy in Eastwood to try out their breakfast buffet. Somethin' Fishy has breakfast buffet (P159.00), lunch buffet (P425.00 on weekdays and P525.00 on weekends) and dinner buffet (525.00). The breakfast buffet, from what I read over the Internet, starts from 12:00 midnight up to 10 AM. We got there almost 9AM because I woke up late. Boo, haha!
Somethin' Fishy is in Eastwood City Cyberpark, E. Rodriguez Jr. Ave.,
Bagumbayan, Libis, Quezon City
While we wait to be seated, I noticed that the place is a bit dull. There's a big fish plastered on the wall facing the entrance and tons of photos showing people with their big catches -- that's all. Anyway, we came for the food not for the interior. ☺
Sometimes I still wear shades inside a building
so I can observe my surrounding in a non-obtrusive way.
The place was buzzing with diners so it took awhile for us to be seated. We barely have an hour to go and I was kinda expecting the food to be almost gone. So, check out what we've managed to haul from the almost empty buffet table...
Plate number 1 contains (I'm trying my best to guess their names, LOL!) pansit guisado, longganisa, bistek tagalog, tocino, pork adobo, sweet ham, fish fillet and lumpia shanghai (spring rolls).
Plate Number 2 contains the breakfast essentials: waffles, pancakes and well, that's dessert (what's left from the kakanin table) called biko or sweetened rice cake. They still have palitaw (or rice dumplings) but I did not bother to get any.
Plate number 3 contains: omelet, fried rice, sweet ham and tofu...
Based on the empty spaces at the buffet table, I think we didn't miss much. Too bad I didn't get to try their siomai though -- I'm a big fan of siomai with lots and lots of chilli oil. There's also pansit palabok, but I'm not an advocate so i skipped it.
It was a decent breakfast, the choices are great and varied but none that really made a huge impression. I recommend Somethin' Fishy's breakfast buffet to diners who are budget conscious and to those who aren't really particular with the 'ambiance.' But if you are, go find another restaurant. This is not a place for romantic dates, but I think would be awesome for family celebrations or group hang outs. In fact, I was overhearing happy family chatter and huge group of friends just exchanging stories over a hearty meal. They're the ones who's making the place fun. I'm not gonna try their lunch or dinner buffets because when I checked the menu, they are mostly sea foods. I'm not a fan of sea foods, sorry. Haha! But if you are, check 'em out and tell me what you think.
By the way, the service is OK. I did not encounter any rudeness, they were polite and accommodating. They refill your iced tea promptly and the restroom was fine too.
Until my next wandering, thanks for reading!
