Grappa’s Ristorante is an Italian restaurant located at the second floor of the Greenbelt 3 Mall in Makati City. Noreen and I wanted to see a movie but we decided not to see one when we passed by Grappa’s Ristorante Italiano and they had a buffet special. A dinner buffet for as low as P595.00 (US$12.14), plus 10% tax. Noreen urged me to have buffet rather than watch a movie. So what made her go for buffet other than the price? See this.
Seen here is the centerpiece of the buffet, the suckling pig, also known as the cochinillo, as the Spanish would call it. The cochinillo is Spanish (Segovia) cuisine where a very young pig is roasted until the skin is crisp and the meat, tender. Unlike the mature pig, the young pig has less fat and is much more tender and tasty. By itself, most restaurants charge above P400 (US$8.16) for a full order. This is what made me think that I was getting a good deal for the price. I can finally have all the cochinillo I can eat!
The buffet line up was not as extensive as a hotel buffet. However, the food is very good and the service, impeccable. The staff was very attentive to my needs and they answered every question I threw at them. They were very professional and I just loved the service. The food was equally stupendous. For the price, nothing beats.
The pumpkin soup was very good!
This is one of my favorites, Tuna Carpaccio. It’s thinly sliced raw tuna seasoned to taste. I particularly liked the smoky flavor of the tuna and how the taste was balanced by the bed of veggies underneath.
Grappa’s buffet is available on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays only. Do drop by Grappa’s and enjoy the good food and service. Highly recommended for buffet hunters.
