Here’s my take!
From the cafe downstairs and the bakery outside comes the Filipino favorite kind of meal: an Asian fusion buffet on the 2nd floor!
On a quick glance of every food that is available here, all I can say is that the mixed Asian flavors of the entrees are the perfect “beer match”. While alcoholic drinks are not “yet” served in this restaurant, the meals are something you’ll both find as a delectable lunch set, and something you’d want to keep munching with an alcohol shot. Check out this list of buffet food available during the time we get the chance to try it out. Take note of the ones highlighted in RED. They’re our favorites and the ones we can truly say a must-try in 7 Flavors!

More 7 Flavors Chessecakes, the perfect finale to a mouthwatering buffet rollercoaster!
And of course the big ender to a tasty meal, the signature 7 Flavors Ensaymada. See the Pandan and Ube in there? Truly mouthwatering.
Soon as we enter the premises, the establishment promises to bring you a “straight from home” meal goodness as the location obviously was a refurbishment of a comfortable house. While the interiors aren’t as complete during our visit, it’s easy to say that a combination of a coffee shop and a buffet restaurant is something you’d love to look forward to. Access to this place is easy: walk back towards Wilson St. once you arrive at McDonald’s Addition Hills.
The buffet is definitely the leader of the pack. I’m not a drinker but the food really seemed like a mug of beer is a-must. Also, the available food may not be truly comparable to that of the huge buffet restaurants available, but the real family-cooking goodness will give you that inviting signal to try out a somehow stretched selections.
Are We Going Back:
Yes! We have yet to try the rest of the milkshakes. Plus, the 7 Flavors Ensaymada is something we’d love to bring home.
Step inside and experience a different kind of comfort meal goodness open 11:00am-2:00pm during lunch, and 6:00pm-10:00pmfor dinner at 7 Flavors!
We’d like to personally thank Ms. Kathy Kenny Ngo of Life Is Kulayful for giving us the chance to experience a buffet and desserts extravaganza the 7 Flavors way. 🙂
