The PVL Buffet Center opened at the Shaw Center Mall in Mandaluyong on January 30, 2015.
Owned by Mrs. Norma Lim, the lady who is famous for her bright light decors on Policarpio Street during the holiday season, and the giant siopao, the restaurant currently offers buffet meals for as low as P300 per person for lunch and P350 per person for dinner.
While it’s an opening day, My family and I am no stranger to PVL’s dishes, being frequent visitors at its existing restaurants that serve ala carte menu: the one in Lopez corner F. Ortigas St., New Zaniga (also in Mandaluyong City), and the other one at the foodcourt of The Landmark in Makati City. It’sbeef lengua estofado in white cream sauce, salmon head sinigang and beef kaldereta are reasons enough for my family and I to keep coming back whenever we can, and we are all happy to see the same dishes and so more during the PVL Buffet Center’s opening day.
Even though this restaurant is inside a mall that houses primarily the BPOs, PVL also has many types of customers in mind if I gauge it from the variety of dishes that it serves — Asian (Chinese, Filipino, Korean, Japanese), European (Spanish, Mexican) and American. The same can be said of its soups, starters and desserts. That provides opportunity for the diner to sample as many as 10 dishes at a time, and that alone already spells value for the money one is about to spend. Yet, what I find even more special about PVL is its effort to stay true to the authentic taste of each dish that it offers to its customers, much to the gastronomic delight of eager diners like us.
