Sweet, Sour, Salty, Spicy, Umami, Bitter, and Astringent.

What am I talking about, exactly?

These are the seven basic tastes, a common theme found in Chef Boy Logro’s restaurant/buffet/bakeshop, 7 Flavors!!! Chef Logro is pretty much considered a household name here in the PH, all thanks to his hit TV show on GMA7, ‘Kusina Master’. He has cooked meals for several dignitaries and world leaders – The Sultan of Jordan, the late Princess Diana of Wales, and former US President George HW Bush, to name a few.

Naturally, I had really high expectations for his buffet. However, my mom, who had lunch at this place a couple of weeks ago with her college buddies, didn’t really think that the buffet was worth it. I wanted to try this place out for myself, though, so I convinced her to take me and my dad to 7 Flavors this morning.

There’s a café downstairs if you don’t feel like stuffing your face with too much food at the buffet.

Here’s the buffet!! Not a lot of dishes to choose from… The food ranges from Japanese, to Filipino, to Chinese, and Mexican.

Starting off with some creamy Asparagus soup. Probably had three bowls of these.

Here’s my first plate, which includes the following: Spicy buffalo chicken, Tempura, Soy tofu, Meatballs with mushroom sauce, and some appetizers. Aside from the tempura, everything tasted a-ok!

Second plate consisted of more appetizers, several pieces of Maki, more meatballs, and Tonkatsu. The tonkatsu had this nice, greasy taste and was also very crunchy.

A piece of yummy Roast Beef.

My parents tried the usual assortment of fruits, plus, maki, tempura, tofu, Yang chow fried rice, and Fried ika.

Not a lot of options for dessert either. Aside from the ones pictured here (Brownie and Red velvet cupcake), some of the other choices included Halo-Halo, and Maja Blanca.

Some of the other items in the menu include: Hawaiian salad, Tacos, Steamed rice, Beef kare-kare, Salad, Pancit canton, and Bread and butter, among others.

I’m pretty glad that I gave this place a try because it wasn’t as bad as my mom said it was – In fact, it was quite the opposite, although they could use a little more improvement with the amount of food served at the buffet. Still, if you’re trying to find a great buffet that won’t break your budget, then 7 Flavors is a good choice.
