Oldies but Goodies at Tomas Morato: Alfredo's and Kozui

Nothing could be quicker lunch than a buffet. We were again driving around Tomas Morato looking for a place for a quick lunch, when we decided on trying out Alfredo's Sunday Angus Beef-All-You-Can Promo for P751 (net) per head. 

Here's the spread:
Cheese and Broccoli Soup
Chicken Macaroni
Sesame Vegetable Stir Fry | Sardine Piccante
Rice with Parsley | Bilbao Rice
Cheddar and Bacon Mashed Potato | Buffalo Wings
Carving Station for Hanging Tender and Roast Beef

The place wasn't packed when we arrived, but gradually filled up. The crowd was mostly comprised of families.

I didn't do justice for the P751. Here are the food that actually fell on my plates. 
The hanging tender was very succulent, excellent quality for something found off a buffet. Well, we were at Alfredo's.

I loved the taste of the spicy sardine pasta. How can you go wrong with sardines? Though we were eyeing at how easily it must have been made.

I even went back for the sardines and added it to some Bilbao Rice!

Not being a fan of cakes at all, I skipped the cake display altogether. We decided to go across the street to Kozui, a 6-year old modern Japanese restaurant and tea house which I've never stepped foot in, considering the six years I've worked at the Tomas Morato vicinity.

Nikko's brothers would usually pass by this place for some Anmitsu after any Tomas Morato lunch or dinner. Anmitsu is the Japanese version of Halo Halo, with a green tea or vanilla ice cream top and pearls, dango balls, sweet azuki beans, taro jam on the sides.

I had a lower-calorie version of the dessert, which was simply a small serving of the green tea ice cream with pearls, taro balls and dango balls. Heavenly!
