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.

Love the lighting fixtures over the sushi station 
025 This place is huge!

Each section offers a different kind of cuisine. They offer European, Japanese, Chinese, American and Filipino dishes plus a huge dessert spread. I’ll show you that later. 024

The buffet spread never ends!  Well, of course it does. I’m exaggerating. 023

My personal uniform. The banyo is nice by the way. Clad with very modern functional fixtures. Nothing too girly. My kind of banyo. 022On to the food porn…


Loved the Blinis (tiny pancakes). Munching on them makes me feel like a giant. 014

Cold cuts, salami, cheeses and pates013

Some of the trays got emptied the moment they were replenished. A lot of very hungry people in this place.



The maki station was pretty popular. Everything got wiped out so quickly!

My first plate was filled with these004

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!

For the gummy candy addicts
019Chocolate fountain anyone? There was also a strawberry fondue I forgot to take a photo of but just by looking at it, I felt a toothache coming on. haha. 

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.



Panna Cotta, Puddings and Mousse 
Pinoy desserts

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.

Since I started my diet, the last time I’ve been in a real buffet was ages ago so that afternoon was particularly blissful for me. Screw the calories!

If you’re interested to give this buffet a try, Lunch is 688+,Weekday Dinner is 888+, Weekend Lunch and Dinner plus Holiday is 1088+. Make sure to come with an empty stomach and most importantly, make reservations in advance.

  1. MOA may be a little far from you but I suggest you try Buffet 101 in case you’re in the area 🙂 Stay away from their dessert plate kasi mejo bland yung taste for me (alam mo nmn I’m a sucker of sweets). Haha. But their crepe, waffles and the rest from their menu are great.
    And yeah! dapat talaga gutom. At konting rice lang para makarami 🙂

  2. Mukhang yummy yung mga panacotta, mousse & puddings. That section is probably what I would go back to many times over. Thanks for sharing, Aimee!
    At talaga nman. Super payat na!;)

  4. the idea was to have the customer dine like a viking but with a luxury feel/ambiance just like a hotel. Like the 1st branch Viking MOA. Then came Vikings Marikina which has an oriental homy feel.the Idea also was for the people to dine at viking branches having different experiences. same reason as why vikings Sm north edsa has a grandeur feel. 🙂
