Market Cafe’s Asian Station
July 27, 2012 by jotan23
MARKET CAFE – where everything is made and served fresh daily. Quality is never compromised.
Local beers and sodas are included in the buffet. Drink all you can, but make sure you still leave some space for the awesome food.
TIP: Market Cafe’s Guava Iced Tea is really good; however, it’s not included in the buffet.
Market Cafe’s Western Station – charcoal grill, pizza oven, pasta station and rotisserie
top blade steak, lamb chops, pork belly, marinated chicken, salmon steak
FYI: During dinner buffet, the meat selection also includes prime ribs and Angus rib eye steak. YUM!
Market Cafe – Baked Pasta and Paella Valenciana
There are plenty more pasta choices available, which are cooked upon request: spaghetti, fetuccine, penne, rigatoni with various sauce selections such as: aglio olio, pesto, bolognese, carbonara, pomodoro and puttanesca.
All breads are freshly baked daily at Market Cafe
Assorted cold cuts
my personal picks: brie, blue cheese and port salut
Market Cafe’s amazing salad bar.
They do have the regular salad dressings and condiments but I love the additional condiments more: preserved fruits, nuts and spices! Oh, and there are also special dressings available that you might want to try (apart from the usual balsamic vinegar, thousand island, etc): oil and white wine vinegar, pommery mustard, and yogurt citrus dressing.
Market Cafe’s COLD Station
It looks very straightforward – fresh seafood sitting on a mountain of ice with lemons. It’s good to know that Market Cafe supports the local community. The oysters are brought daily from Kalibo, Aklan; and, the tuna from Davao or General Santos City.
FYI: During the weekends, special Norwegian salmon is served, along with the rock lobsters from Taiwan 🙂
Market Cafe’s Asian Station
Live wok cooking station! You may request dishes like black pepper squid, sinigang, or whatever your heart desires!
steamed seabass and kids’ favorite prawn crackers
There are always 4 types of dimsum served everyday, which depends on what’s available: pork and shrimp siomai, chiu chow (pork and shrimp with nuts), siopao, pork dumplings, chicken feet, pork spare ribs, duck wings, etc.
Market Cafe: Teppanyaki Station
Market Cafe’s sushi station
Enjoy the freshest sashimi and sushi to your heart’s delight!
TIP: You may ask the chef to make a special makimono roll of your own choice – how about tuna, crab meat, salmon and snapper all in one roll?!
Market Cafe’s Dessert Station
It was like dessert haven – cakes, fresh fruits, tarts, flans, fondue, ice creams and more!
pineapple + chocolate = ♥♥♥
Market Cafe churns their own ice creams
Among the yummy ice cream flavors are: black sesame, ube, dalandan sherbet (a real good palate cleanser), oreo cookie, cheese (made with cream cheese), strawberry, mango yogurt (sugar free!!!), coffee Bailey’s, and rich chocolate fudge.
Bread and Butter Pudding
The bread and butter pudding is a must try whenever you dine at Market Cafe! It’s scrumptiously good that it became their staple signature dessert.
