2020 Birthday Dinner Buffet at Niu by Vikings SM Aura Premier Bonifacio Global City Manila. Niu is the lavish buffet concept of the Vikings Restaurant Group which differentiates itself through gourmet dishes, elegant interior design, plush seating and live entertainment.It is located at the upscale SM Aura Premier Mall in Bonifacio Global City. Be sure to make reservations ahead of time so you will not be delayed in enjoying the 9 live food and drink stations with more than300 dishes and drinks. The 9 Stations are: Cold Appetizers and Salad,Japanese, Beverage, Pan Asian, Chinese, Grill, Carving, Continental and Dessert. Starting at the Beverage Station you will have a choice of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, we focused on their White and Red wines, hot sake and imported beer to pair with our chilled seafood and cheeses. They also have Ice Cold Draft San Miguel Beer to be paired with the Steamed suahe and Hot Sake with our Japanese dishes and fresh shakes and infused waters to refresh the palette. They have a selection of imported beer like Snow, Taiwan Beer, Max, Tiger and Chang. The cold station used to have big ticket items like New Zealand Black Mussels, Slipper Lobster and Crabs, but over the years they have occasionally been removed from the buffet. Take note that they have consistently had Spanish Manchego cheese which is made from milk of the manchega Sheep breed and one of the most expensive cheeses in the world. The Japanese station has colorful assorted maki’s that may tempt your eyes and on this visit they had salmon and uni sashimi and their tempura is always freshly cooked. We spent a good deal of time returning to the Chinese station solely for the crabs and the steamed suahe. From their dimsum only the shrimp dumplings stood out but we would have preferred the wrapper to be thinner. Take note if you are lucky you can ask the Chef for a special order of Chili Salt & Pepper Crabs. Carving stations at buffets are notorious for always serving dry meat as they tend to get overcooked while sitting pretty underneath 150 watt suspended heat lamps. At Niu this sadly was also the case so make sure to choose your cut of the New Zealand Garlic and Rosemary studded Lamb Leg with mint sauce and US prime rib with mushroom gravy just so you got your bases covered. The signature dish at Vikings has always been their Lechon Belly or roasted pork belly and this is worth having at least two servings of as it is crispy,aromatic and just so addictive! The continental station has wood fired pizzas, fresh pastas and stewed European dishes but the only thing we used to gorge on is unlimited foie gras. Unfortunately it wasn’t part of the buffet on this visit and hasn’t been for a few years now. Currently the only other venue that serves unlimited foie gras is the legendary Spiral Buffet at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza. The dessert station is massive with local desserts, assorted cakes and pastries, fresh fruits, halo-halo, frozen yoghurt, crepes, chocolate fondue fountains, churros and to top it off artisanal ice cream and gelato. Niu is more than just a Viking’s Buffet it is an offering to the gods, a celebration of life,appreciation for food and a welcome addition to Manila’s evolving Buffet scene.
