Tsim Sha Tsui

I had Chicken Feet, Xiao Long Bao and Malacca Rice.

The Chicken Feet was so-so amidst the craze I heard.

The Xiao Long Bao was a huge disappointment. It was too huge that you couldn't stuff it in your mouth and supposedly taste the gush of liquid which is supposed to be in it.

The Malacca Fried Rice was dry but spicy.

The Siomai and the Siopao was so-so but not as so-so as the Chicken Feet.

My friend had this and this.

Now that I have eaten here, I don't know if I will still return here.

Feria at Raddison Blu

Limited choices but unlimited bacon and unlimited croissants. I hope their lunch or dinner buffet will prove me otherwise. Still, Shangrila's buffet is better.

This P128 buffet really didn't catch my attention but I don't know what got into me and my housemates when we found ourselves there one Saturday ago.

I started with the KBL. It was different. Seems like they placed something in it. But it was delicious and a totally welcome change. The meat was not that tender but what matters most is that it wasn't tough.

The Sotanghon was delicious as well. I have never tasted a bad-tasting Sotanghon.

The Grilled Tilapia was good but it was an ugly sight because people just dug a piece out of it.

I didn't really enjoy this pork dish which came with a lot of fat.

I enjoyed this Chicken. When I came back for seconds, it was already consumed. :(

This meatball is seemingly a favorite of the people there last Saturday. I don't really find it amazing though.

The Fried Chicken is so-so.

The Tortang Talong is also so-so while the Fried Lumpia is the worst.

The desserts are weird. One is a spaghetti with cream and fruits which really didn't taste bad.

There was also Bukayo which tasted like Bukayo.

128 is worth it but the Bottomless Iced Tea is at P50, very sweet and takes time to have refills.

I have once eaten here and found their Bicol Express delicious. One night, however, we had Pork Liempo. It was priced at P90.

After about P20 minutes, it arrived. Well, it was delicious but it was fatty - very fatty.

Markim's is not one of my favorite restaurants so I might not come back here in the near future.

Everytime I eat here, I always order their meal sets. At around P150, you get salad, pasta, pizza, meat and rice plus drinks. It used to be worth it before but now, it is still worth it but... not really. Their serving size has lessened.

For their appetizers, I chose Tacos instead of Caesar Salad. I like the Tacos of long ago because it was really a taco. And if I could remember right, there were two tacos instead of taco innards sprinkled with crushed taco shells.

For pasta, I opted for Carbonara. The Carbonara was watery. It had less cream in it making it bland.

The Piazza pizza was small this time but the crust is thin but not biscuit thin.

The Chicken Salpicao was delicious! Yum yum yum. It was soft and well-cooked. I also like the rice which was soft and a little wet.

We also had Bacon Baked Potato which was worth it at P68. It was cheesy, steaming hot and had bacon bits.

The meal set is still worth it. I don't see myself returning here soon though... except of course, for the Baked Potato. :)
