Maguro Nights at Seven Corners - Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria

Seven Corners in Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria is celebrating Maguro Nights this January. Until the 31st of this month, guests can enjoy freshly-prepared tuna sashimi and special tuna dishes in the hotel’s dinner buffet spread. Whether you love raw tuna or you prefer it grilled, seared, or mixed into your favorite dishes, this promotion will surely satiate the seafood lover in you.

After all these years, Crowne Plaza’s all-day dining restaurant remains to be a favorite buffet choice among the pickiest diners of Manila. With Seven Corners’ extensive selections from different cuisines, expertly-cooked dishes, and generous offerings, it’s easy to understand why the 11-year-old restaurant continues to be flocked by patrons and new customers. I personally think it is one of the most well-curated buffets in Manila—one where no dish is a “filler”, and everything is of good quality. In addition, they offer steak and a big variety of seafood even for lunch, unlike other outlets where the midday buffet is almost always mediocre compared to dinner.

A giant tuna greets guests from this month’s special station, and from here, you can enjoy fresh sashimi or request the chefs to cook the tuna according to your preference. Take note that even if the menu changes daily, you can still approach the chefs and express your requests.

In any buffet, I always start with some appetizers before attacking the Japanese station. Seven Corners has a good selection of salads, breads, and cheeses, alongside fresh fruits, dried fruits, and nuts. From the Japanese section, I spotted unagi among its beautiful arrays of sushi and rolls—instant plus points because I loooove unagi! Fresh shellfish like mussels and scallops, as well as crabs, prawns, and curacha are just nearby, tempting hungry guests, allergic or not. Steamed? Cooked in lemon butter? Grilled? Topped with cheese? Take your pick!

The Carving Station is always a hit, especially with Seven Corners’ delicious rib eye steak, which you can pair with some roasted vegetables or potato wedges, then top with gravy, mushroom sauce, or simple herbed oil. I loved their perfectly-cooked lamb chops—free of the weird taste you get from this meat if it’s not prepared properly.

The Indian Station is another highlight of the restaurant, where diners can feast on Halal-certified creations such as Indian breads (papadum, naan), tikka, biryani, tandoori, dal, and chana aloo, to mention a few. I love Indian food, so I always make sure that I get a plate full of spicy dishes before I try the rest of the buffet offerings.

There’s an Italian Station filled with pizzas, pasta choices, and fresh ingredients you can choose from to create your own pie or pasta dish. For those who love pesto (like I do), you can request the chef to whip up one for you, then top it with some grilled seafood, chicken, or whatever meat is available for the day—or really, whatever you prefer.

Chinese, Filipino, and Western dishes are also offered. Whether you are craving for a steaming bowl of Asian noodle soup, some tasty lechon, good old roast chicken, or Spanish stews, the buffet will make sure you are not only full, but also immensely satisfied.

Finish off your meal with some decadent desserts—and don’t forget to grab a scoop or two of Seven Corners’ famous gelato, the best gelato in Manila! I highly recommend the vanilla, melon, pistachio, coffee, and ube flavors.
