Recently opened Solaire Resort and Casino Complex is in the process of establishing itself as the premier casino hotspot in the country, and would prove itself to be a worthy adversary of Resorts World Manila, another Hotel, Casino, Retail & Dining paradise.
Being a Foodie myself, I dare not go to where the rich and flamboyant dare to, but in the name of gastronomic adventures, I might end up gatecrashing into one. My most recent discovery here, is Solaire’s answer to buffet fanatics and connoisseurs; Fresh. That’s the name – Fresh. The said buffet dining section of the hotel casino showcases a fusion of Filipino, Chinese, Japanese and Korean food – which are all distinctively Asian.
There are other stand alone signature anchor restaurants to be found inside the complex, and if you and your wallet is up for the challenge, then by all means. Two food sections; Fresh and Solaire’s Food Court appeals to those on the mid-range and for the budget conscious, but still lets you dine, taste food and experience the Solaire Ambiance. As the reviews say, ‘like no other’ (well, most of them claim to be the same.)
Going back to ‘Fresh’, here’s the advertised rates for the buffet, divided to Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch and Dinner rates, depending on the day of the week. What’s new here is they’re open 24/7, but the goods are a la carte – meaning you can’t munch to your heart’s delight, but you get to choose what you crave for even on the wee hours.
The price range may leave you gasping and a for others, shocked at first, but an honest statement from a friend says that the buffet line up, quality and taste are incomparable to Vikings, Yakimix and Buffet 101.
The food selection tastes better than the rest but is more affordable compared to Sofitel’s Spiral which costs 3,000+ pax.. So, who’s brave enough to try?
If the cost leaves you wide eyed and jaw dropped, no sweat. Try Solaire’s Food Court. Still has the classy feel and ambiance, also has a wide selection of food choices aptly divided from Asian, European and Western choices.
You and your wallet, purse or what-you-have won’t be shell shocked with the price range either, and here’s a good place to catch up with your friends, lounge out, and if you’re like me, explore!
I’m not a gambler myself but I’ll be there to sample out the food, ambiance, people, service , and what Solaire has to offer. Quite a shame since I haven’t tried Resorts World yet, though it seems to be more accessible, all eyes are hot on the newest casino hub at the moment.
For those who wonder where on earth this is, Solaire is located at Pagcor Entertainment City (very near SM Mall of Asia), Paranaque City. It sits on the same reclaimed land where MOA is, so now you have a clear picture of where this is. If you’re standing in front of the MOA Globe Rotunda, it’s on your left. It’s near DFA and is along Aseana Avenue. Hoping to experience a delectable dining experience here!
