I was pleasantly surprised to discover that there are a lot of delicious dishes available at the Saturday Night Fever Dinner Buffet at Oakwood Premier Manila's Oakroom Restaurant and Bar. Though admittedly the area is much smaller compared to other hotel buffets, the quality of the food makes it stand tall... And all for just P1,290+++ per head!
The whole buffet area
This is the dining area. Not too big but cozy nonetheless.
They have a wide selection of salads to start with.
The Caesar Salad in particular was my favorite. In fact they have one of the best Caesar Salads I have tasted in the Metro. It tastes exactly the way I want it. A bit salty yet refreshing!
They also have Cob Salad...
A Waldorf Salad...
And a fairly interesting N.Y. Style Cheesedog Salad. It was interesting but I was not such a fan of it. But my friend and seatmate Dude For Food really liked it! They also have Pulled Chicken Salad and Pulled Pork Salad. Told ya they have a lot of salads to choose from!
Lots of salad dressings to choose from too!
They have lots of other appetizers. The Smoked Salmon in particular was my favorite! Good smokey salmon sitting pretty on top of a soft bread!
I also liked the Reuben Sandwich. The dressing is very tasty. But I just wish there was more meat. But overall, it was quite good!
The Chicken Tortilla was also really good! Its very light yet very flavorful at the same time.
They also serve Pastrami and Smoked Turkey
Let's get down to business and head on to the meaty stuff...
Hello Rib Eye! Oakroom's Rib Eye had a good amount of seasoning that it's good even without the gravy. But I suggest you add gravy as well because it's even more fantastic! Very soft and juicy!
Richie will definitely love these Pork Ribs Barbecue because of its sweet taste. It falls off the bone too!
Call me "corny" but I really enjoyed the grilled corn on the cob. It has that subtle sweetness that makes you want to nibble some more! And it goes with everything, I might add.
They also have some Buffalo Wings which have just the right amount of heat. I enjoyed this as well. Can be very addicting.
I found the Grilled Steak a bit tough. But I hope it was just tough the day we went there.
Oakroom Bar and Restaurant serves some yummy desserts
And some other delicious and very beautiful cakes!
Like the Red Velvet...
Black and White Brownies...
And Mud Pie. And a lot more!
Then finally, the moment you've all been waiting for... The Croissant Doughnut station by Chef Jerome Cartailler! It's a well-oiled station machine that serves fancy and sweet croissant doughnuts, and also cooks savory ones on the spot per request!
Take for example, their best seller the Croissant Doughnut Philly which has tender beef, onions, and lots of cheese sauce.
And of course, a flavor that is truly Pinoy! Presenting, the Croissant Doughnut de Pinoy has pulled adobo, cheddar, and then topped with crackling.
And a Burger Croissant Doughnut
While these savory croissant doughnuts are good, I personally prefer mine to be more on the sweet side. I guess it's just my mind anticipating that doughnuts in any form should be sweet hehe.
If you're worried that you won't be able to finish one whole, you can ask them to make only half an order.
The Saturday Night Fever Buffet is available every Saturday from 6PM - 10PM at Oakroom, Restaurant and Bar, located at the 6th floor of Oakwood Premier, 17 ADB Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.
