Vikings Birthday Promo x Food Review

No, I am not yet done with my birthday post. Like I told you, I had a second celebration over at Vikings SM Marikina branch with my family so I wish to share it here. Again, I consider my birthday this year as one of my best birthdays ever because of the double treat and the awesome gifts I received from my friends and family. Thank you so much guys! Now let's go to down to our gastronomic experience at Vikings restaurant and their on-going birthday promo which I happily availed.

Oh yes, I got a free meal worth P1088 and a group of Viking peeps sang a birthday song to me.

Plus, they also gave me this very cute complimentary cake. How generous? :)

Time for lunch! This is the salad section. They have greek salad, potato salad, macaroni salad, etc.

More appetizers here.. cheesese, nuts and cold cuts.

This is where you get fresh bread and pastries.

Feeling Japanese? Here's the sushi and sashimi section.

Unfortunately, this is the section that I needed to skip cos I'm never a fan of sushi and sashimi.

Here's the hotpot section: corn, mushrooms, noodles, meatballs, and may more.

The dessert section is where the ice cream is. Hmmm.. daughter's favorite.

They also have halo-halo, kakanin, and a great selection of cakes and flavored gelatine.

Beside the chocolate fondue is where they make crepes. Yum!

Warning: this is nothing but gluttony so excuse the amount of food you'll see in my plate. Haha.

There are some sections that I missed here. I did not have a shot of the soup section, seafood and grilling section, main course section, and the dumplings, lechon, steak, etc. You know if you are at Vikings, you'll likely forget everything and just dig in. I tell you, I went to each section with my camera with me, but I would always forget taking a shot before filling my plate.

Our first experience of a Viking meal was 2 weeks before this one. We first tried Vikings MOA one random weekend, then went to Vikings Marikina for my birthday. So far, my overall impression of Vikings is very good, as well as hubby's. In fact, it was him who wanted to go back to Vikings a week after our first visit. I just had to disagree, thinking that we could get a cheaper buffet meal because of my birthday.

If I were to rate the overall value of the restaurant including its ambiance, service, price, and food, I would say it's 9 over 10. Almost everything tastes delicious at Vikings. You will seldom find something bland or lacking flavor. The ingredients are complete and most food are well-presented. My only complain will be with the beverage section. I guess it will be better if they serve buko juice, sago't gulaman, melon juice, etc. instead of powdered juices.

By the way, to avail the Vikings birthday promo, I called them first for a buffet reservation. Upon reservation, they asked me if anyone of us was celebrating a birthday and I said yes. As proof of my birthday, I was required to bring any ID with my date of birth in it. It was that simple.

So feeling hungry now? Interested to celebrate your birthday with Vikings, too? Below is the complete details about Vikings birthday promo.

1. A birthday celebrant can avail the promo in a total of 7 days at Vikings Marikina. Just visit either 3 days before, 3 days after, or on the actual day of your birthday.

  1. Belated happy birthday!! I wish you the best things in life :)

  2. finally im enlightened with your post. my friends been raving about this one!

  3. happy birthday! i've been thinking about going to vikings for quite sometime na, but being a minimal eater lang, i feel that sayang naman the buffet. so i'll just wait for my birthday to avail this :P hehe

  4. Wow! Why didn't I know this? I should have celebrated my birthday at Vikings! Thank you for sharing. I have something to look forward to on my next birthday. :-)

  5. Belated happy birthday sis!

    Haven't tried Viking yet, lagi kasing puno yung MOA branch. One time we planned to eat there, we ended up dining at Buffet 101. For me ha, it's better there. More spacious, more varied food selection, more complete beverages (they serve wine for free, sa Vikings may bayad daw). Plus, they have fresh fruit juices and shakes! :)

  6. Belated happy birthday sis. Good health and more blessings.

    I haven't tried Viking, but I read a lot of good reviews about this place. Hope I can visit Viking Branch here in Davao.

  7. Happy Birthday!

    I once attempted to try Vikings in MOA, but they are always full. I had no patience to wait in line.

    I guess I'll call to make a reservation on my birthday. ^__^

  8. Hey belated happy birthday! Vikings food are extraordinarily delicious! I hope to eat there soon also with my family. :)

  9. Happy birthday!

    I hope their birthday promo is permanent or at least will last until February next year. Haha! My sister and my birthdays are 5 days apart and this would be a perfect treat for our family. :)

  10. I'm so excited because Vikings will be opening a branch here in Davao soon. I'm sure that I would have the same great experience that you had from their buffet spread!

  11. Super sulit ang Vikings! I just had dinner there last night. super busog na busog ako. nyahahaha :D ang cute din kase they sing a happy birthday song to the celebrant there. :D

  12. Happy Birthday, sis!
    This is an awesome celebration. I hope they open more branches, somewhere near my place para I can celebrate my birthday at Vikings, too. Haha! :)

  13. happy birthday! wow! the food makes me so hungry!

  14. Belated happy birthday! This is interesting. My birthday is coming up and this will really be a nice treat.

  15. Happy happy birthday! Have a fabulous one girl!
