Have you ever heard of Vikings the buffet place? I ask because well, I’ve never heard of it. The only time I’ve learned of its existence was when the husband took me there for a lunch date. He brought me to the SM Marikina branch, a mall I rarely visit. Apparently there’s also one in Mall of Asia and just a few days ago, there was a grand opening of its newest branch in SM North Edsa The Block.
This was the entrance. I found it a tad bit weird that the name of the restaurant is Vikings but the overall look and feel of the resto is Oriental. There seems to be a disconnect. I also wonder if I’m the only one pondering these kinds of thoughts when I should merely be focused on pigging out like the rest of the hungry mob waiting to be seated that day.

My personal uniform. The banyo is nice by the way. Clad with very modern functional fixtures. Nothing too girly. My kind of banyo. On to the food porn…
Cold cuts, salami, cheeses and pates
Some of the trays got emptied the moment they were replenished. A lot of very hungry people in this place.
Nice to look at. Didn’t bother trying though.
I didn’t take photos of everything but if I did, this post will have to broken into two or three parts. The buffet place was that huge.
Now on to the desserts!
The dessert station was well-stocked and the mini-cakes were enclosed in a glass fridge to maintain their consistency. You just have to choose which ones you want and the servers would gladly bring out the desserts for you.
As I already had four platefuls of food (you better believe it), I decided to carefully curate my dessert plate to just these three. A red velvet cake, truffle cake and mango panna cotta.
