Circles Event Café, Makati Shangri-La

For the past four years, it has become a tradition for us to celebrate special family occasions at Circles Event Cafe in Makati Shangri-La. This restaurant has witnessed a number of birthdays and anniversaries, and it was also here where my wife and I had our first breakfast as a married couple. There are so many things to love about Circles such as the homey atmosphere, the friendly staff and, of course, the great selection of cuisine.

At Circles, meals are exciting affairs that are worth looking forward to. We would start by getting prawns, mussels and crabs at the cold section, and would have these cooked in garlic and butter. Of late, however, crabs have been absent so it might disappoint those who are in love with this crustacean. As for us, we are content with the large prawns and plump mussels.

 The carvery is another must-visit station for our meat fix. A slab of juicy, medium rare beef, smothered with gravy or red wine sauce, plus a siding of tasty potatoes, vegetables and Yorkshire pudding is always a winning combination. A plateful is not enough so a second helping is certainly in order.

Fresh slices of tuna and salmon sashimi, as well as rolls of California Maki are also perpetually present. These dishes never disappoint because quality and taste are top notch at all times.

Aside from these, there are a lot of other dishes, ranging from local to international, that cater to a broad range of palates. With the many selections, it would be difficult to sample everything though. Moderation is key for those who are on a mission to sample all dishes.

The dessert station is no doubt another favorite. Something light? Why not opt for chunks of fresh fruits in season? But if you want to indulge, there are cakes and pastries like Tres Leches cake, vanilla pudding with butter, and tiramisu, to name a few. For a cool treat, there is halo-halo, ice cream and frozen yogurt.

  7. Ah, really? That's nice to know. At least you still try to reconnect with your birthplace. Must be nice to experience 2 distinct cultures -- that of the US and the Philippines.
