I thought we had a good mix, from the newly opened Hill Station to old time favorites like Cafe by the Ruins and Forest House, I had every meal covered even for our afternoon merienda! What I didn't include and actually failed to give more attention to was this restaurant that has been famous for their Mongolian Buffet for years! It was only when friends started leaving comments over at my Facebook page urging me and the group to give O' Mai Khan a try. What convinced me was a message from fellow foodie Nowie who can't stop raving about the restaurant and the food. After reading his message, I was truly convinced!
So we decided to drop one restaurant from the list and headed directly to O' Mai Khan for lunch on our second day. Service at Hotel Elizabeth was amazing! To ensure that we can easily secure a table given that we're such a big group, the front desk officer offered to give the restaurant a call and made reservations for us!
We got there at exactly 12 and it has been raining non-stop that day. I silently prayed that they have really reserved a table for us since there seems to be a crowd growing already by the porch of the restaurant. O' Mai Khan used to be located near the Rizal Park and Cafe by the Ruins, they just recently moved to their current and way bigger location at the Upper Session Road where they can offer more parking slots and tables for their growing number of customers. This a waiting line is a common sight in the restaurant as told to me by the server.
I never thought the Baguio community would love Mongolian buffets so much but hey for only Php. 210 per head (adult) and to be able to enjoy bowls of piping hot veggies and meat to combat the chilly weather, I figured out that it made perfect sense!
As soon as we were led to our table and the kids were seated, the adults headed directly to the buffet table.
Look how excited Irene was as she piled her bowl high with Baguio's fresh greens!
Basically the process here is that they control your rice and meat portions (you can choose from pork, chicken or beef) and you can get as many veggies as you want!
