Being three skips and two hops away from my residence, Buffet 101 Robinsons Magnolia is the closest buffet restaurant to me. Although I frequent Robinsons Magnolia, I rarely eat there. It took a friend’s birthday celebration (Hi, Pats!) for me to finally try the food at Buffet 101 Robinsons Magnolia, and I was not disappointed.
Buffet 101 Robinsons Magnolia offers Asian and European cuisines just like Buffet 101 – Glorietta 2. While the former does not offer as many options, it has better food. All of them are well-seasoned, at the right temperature, and not overcooked and dry.
From outside (inside the mall), Buffet 101 Robinsons Magnolia looks small because only the buffet tables are seen from the main entrance. Inside the restaurant, there are tables near the buffet tables and more tables in in the area that faces the garden.
We ate there on a Thursday, when I thought that the restaurant would not have as many patrons, but there must have been at least 300 people inside the restaurant that lunchtime. People milled around the tables and, lo and behold, food disappeared from the table faster than I could say Buffet 101.
Eating that day was a constant exercise of willpower. I tried my best not to stray from the green and leafy vegetable path and avoid having carbonated and artificial drinks. My only concession to indulgence were two plates of desserts. 🙂

The staff was accommodating. The lady manning the dessert station encouraged me to get one of each dessert instead of just only one slice. 🙂 We asked two ladies to take our photos in three separate occasions, and they patiently did so. Thank you, guys!
