Vikings: A Feast in SM Marikina


My friends from Chinabank days (my first employer after graduation) make it a point to meet up at least once a year. Eversince the four of us turned our back from the corporate world and pursued different careers, it is very difficult to squeeze into each other's busy schedule. We have planned this Vikings date a month ago but had to reschedule. And sadly, Michelle wasn't able to join us.

Angela, Anne and ME :)

I live in the nearby Antipolo but it has been years since I last visited SM Marikina. I've been hearing raves about Vikings in SM and it was Anne who suggested that we dine here.

Nice, 'no? I was not expecting it to be this grand. And it gets better once you step inside.

Anne made a reservation via Vikings' Facebook Page. Although they accept walk-ins, I recommend that you make a prior reservation unless you are willing to wait or share a table with other groups that don't have reservations. If you are not into FB, you can also reserve by sending SMS to 0917.876.6888 or call 570.3888

Guests started arriving around 11am. A few minutes later, almost all the tables were occupied. And it's a weekday!! I repeat, you must reserve in advance! :-)

Ready for the food tour?

Here we go...

Angela advised me before to reserve the maki on the last round. But out of habit, I headed towards the Japanese Food Station. When I saw the colorful makis, I could not resist. I convinced myself that getting a few pieces won't take up much space. Anyways, I don't plan on eating rice later.

  At least I managed not to get a second serving.

She also told me to stay away from soup. But this Corn Soup with Seafood is worth defying her.

For my entree, I had a thick slice of US Roast Beef, Lechon Kawali and Chicken Alfredo Roll

From the Chinese Food Station, I had in my plate hakaw (yum!), mushroom, pata tim, pork siomai, smoked sausage and sweet and sour chicken.

There's a fresh seafood section. I saw someone requested the chef to grill some squids. Sadly, there's no lobsters or crabs.

My plate before dessert -- oyster, quiche, chicken galantina, assorted cold cuts and deviled egg.

I'm not a dessert person. If you have a sweet tooth -- Vikings is a paradise. As for me, Mango Panna Cotta, Chocolate Mousse and Blueberry Cheesecake sufficed.  

I'm not a big eater but what I had was worth the price I paid. And we left Vikings gastronomically satisfied.

BTW, if it's your birthday I suggest you celebrate it at Vikings. You get to eat for FREE. Just bring an ID or any proof that it's your birthday.
