Restaurant 5 Lunch Buffet at Discovery Suites!

The first time I dined at Restaurant 5 of Discovery Suites (it's on the 5th floor) was when I checked in the hotel with my family a few years ago. We had an ala carte dinner at Restaurant 5 and I clearly remember being very happy with the food. Restaurant 5 no longer serves dinner these days, just breakfast and lunch.

We started off with a complimentary bread basket which came complete with Discovery Suites' signature spreads. You can actually get all the bread you want at the buffet area.

I also grabbed an empanada (savory meat puff). It was soooo yummy!

There's a carving station too. That day, pork belly was on the chopping board.

Patatas Bravas, potatoes in spicy tomato sauce with chorizo pieces, was delicious too. There was also roast chicken and a several other meat and seafood dishes available.

Lunch themes change on a daily basis. Aside from Spanish there's Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai... the only fixed schedule is Friday when they serve Filipino dishes and Saturday when it's all grilled fare. It's best to call first to confirm what the theme of the days is. The fee is P695++ per person. Coffee and tea are included in the price.
