Japanese Eat-All-You-Can in Manila’s Century Tsukiji

by - Thursday, June 08, 2023


It’s been a while since I’ve last been to a buffet restaurant. With the increasing price of goods, I just thought that those eat-all-you-can places I used to frequent no longer offers the same quality of food. But when I saw this offer from Century Park Hotel’s : Century Tsukiji restaurant, I did not even think twice and reserved a table for a Sunday lunch with the family.

Century Tsukiji does not have a huge area, and I think they have a limited number of seats available, which is why calling to reserve a table is a must. They also have private rooms you can reserve for a minimum consumable amount, which is pretty reasonable if you will avail the buffet. It was ₱8,000 consumable amount for a room with 7 guests.

They offer a wide variety of sashimi, aburi, and maki. Some of their sashimi include the usual salmon, tuna, octopus, yellowfin tuna. They also had some uni. Their seafood were all of good quality and really fresh. 

They have a DIY Ramen Bar where you can choose your own toppings and broth (cheese, tonkotsu, or seafood) to create your own bowl of ramen. We tried their tonkotsu which was okay, broth was not as rich but flavorful enough. 

Their yakitori station was also great. I was not able to take a photo with all the items available, but you can check my Tiktok video for that. This station had a lot of assorted barbequed items on a stick, including wagyu cubes, shrimp, and bacon enoki roll

Of course they also have a tempura station with all their fried dishes, starting with the different kinds of tempura, as well as karaage and tonkatsu.

They also have a few pots of your typical Japanese dishes like yakisoba, yasai itame, and yakiniku (which I really liked, so you should definitely try it).

What’s a Japanese eat-all-you-can without a teppanyaki station? You can order their salmon, scallops, or beef tenderloin. We ordered several plates of their beef tenderloin for our group and have it delivered to our VIP room. 

Their beef tenderloin was okay. I actually liked their yakiniku better in terms of flavor.

They also offered us some gyoza and oysters and served it in our room. 

These are the desserts they have. They have ice cream, crepe, and mini cakes.
