During our last visit to Cebu, we made a spontaneous trip to Shangri-la Mactan to have dinner there. This was months ago, and again, this is another late post, huhu. Anyway, as always, I still think it’s not too late to share our dining experience at Tides, Shangri-la Mactan! 🙂
To be honest, we weren’t actually planning on eating at Tides, as we wanted to try eating at Tea of Spring, Shangri-la Mactan’s Chinese restaurant. However, at the entrance of Tides, we saw a familiar face – Mike, one of the servers. He’s one of the people that, it seems, we always manage to encounter there! Anyway, it didn’t take much to convince us to have our dinner at Tides – after all, as we have gone here quite a number of times already, we know that we won’t be disappointed with the food!
During our visit, there was, I believe, an English theme going on, so there were fish & chips being served and other English dishes.
Some of the sushi on display.
They have an Indian cuisine station.
I think this is part of the Filipino food station.
Assortment of small dishes like salad and cheese for you to choose from.
You can create your own noodles in this station. They have the Filipino Pochero and Singaporean Laksa here as well.
At the time of our visit, Pokemon Go! was at its peak, so this sign was very timely, hehe. Anyway, you can experience eating Filipino street food here.
I thought this sign was really cute. 🙂
Choices of noodles and add-ons in the make-your-own-noodle station.
They also have a pasta station where you can ask them to make you pasta. I chose their carbonara. Anyway, my uncle got tired of me asking for plate after plate so he ended up asking the chef to make 2 servings of pasta and place it on one plate! lol, not surprising then that after this one I didn’t ask for more.
Some of the dishes they have in their Asian station. There’s some Korean and Japanese dishes available here.
Fish and chips.
Some items that are part of their Filipino street food offerings.
Highlight of the Filipino station – the lechon, which is the dish that Cebu is famous for.
There are quite a number of little cakes and pastries for you to choose from in the dessert station.
My favourite place in any buffet, haha.
Some Filipino delicacies were also available in their dessert station.
Bread, a staple in any buffet lol.
They also have ice cream – they offer a lot of different flavours, and even yoghurt.
As usual, I enjoyed our dinner at Tides, but I think that it seems like the food choices have decreased, which is a bit sad. Still, I look forward to coming back, anyway! Hopefully this summer we’ll go back. This time I’ll take better photos, haha. 🙂
Tides, Shangri-la Mactan is located at Punta Engaño Rd, Cebu, 6015 Cebu, Philippines.
