Primero Casa Filipino’s Classy and Affordable Filipino Buffet

Honestly, just seeing the word buffet in a restaurant name is enough to send me scurrying away, evoking of a horde of diners pawing at trays of microwaved food purchased at a warehouse club store.

But when I finally decided to visit Primero Casa Filipino, this didn’t happen. This newly conceptualized restaurant bring much-needed class and spunk to the buffet genre, with its eclectic offering, slick ambiance and snappy service.

For a reasonable price of Php498.00 on a weekend dinner, me and my Grumpy got all-you-can eat to more than 10 Filipino dishes, mouth-watering roasted pork and chicken, a selection of very good appetizers, a well-stocked desserts bar.

Primero Casa Filipino offers all the trappings of typical restaurant service. Here, there’s no trying to flag down one server who is racing to clean 10 tables. Instead, drinks are refilled quickly. Used plates are snapped up in seconds. Custom preparations are offered in the roasted chicken and pork section. The minute we arrived at the place, from the Security Guard who assisted us in parking from the Waiter who greeted us right in front of the door, accompanied us to our table, then happily introduced us to their buffet section, we were just all smiles. I liked what I am experiencing! 🙂

The restaurant’s decor of polished brown hard wood, recessed lighting and dark brown tables, giving this area the feel of a classy place. On the opposite side are longer tables nicely spaced out for groups and families who want to make repeat trips for seconds (and thirds and fourths). Haha!

We were pleased with the huge selection of good-looking Filipino dishes. Highlights include the Zubuchon, Chili Crabs, Buttered Shrimps, Seafood Kare-Kare, Fried Tilapia Escabeche, Chicken Fricassee and Sisig Shooters.

Having our stomachs sufficiently filled by these Filipino dishes, we made our way to the rest of the buffet, and found more. 🙂

Moving along, we got to the other part of the buffet section. Yes, we were just on the first part. Haha! Toward the end of the buffet is an assortment of another set of appetizers.

At this point, we were slumping into our seats in a hushed, satisfying stupor. Our intrepid crew recovered and ventured on us to try the fun and exciting part of the buffet — DESSERTS! And so, we politely obliged and got ourselves a plate and started to fill it with those sinful slices of chocolate cakes and sweets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There’s also a home-made chocolate and strawberry ice cream. Too bad, we weren’t able to try them anymore. Haha!

Gauging the size of the crowd and the restaurant’s only having this new concept for few months, it seems that Primero Casa Filipino is finding a market of its hip yet classy and affordable buffet concept. Me and my Grumpy vowed to return with our family and friends. I’m sure they will also be satisfied by the eclectic piles of Filipino dishes. 🙂

  3. This place looks familiar to me but then when I saw the address I’m sure I’ve never been to this restaurant. Does it have other branches near Manila?
