The Lab Gastropub is at the tranquil side of SM by the Bay, MOA Complex Pasay. It has a soft touch good for people who chose to have a relaxing dinner after a days work. Unlike other chain of restaurants along SM By the Bay, the area is calm... no loud music or bands playing in, out and around the restaurant.
"It is a restaurant-school run by the Center for Culinary Arts Manila where the menu was thoughtfully developed by talented culinary students in the 6-month fast track chef program, mentored by highly experienced chefs."
The ambiance is relaxing and the buffet table is the first thing that will catch your eye. After our hi's and hello, the group decided to have the Eat and Drink all you can promo.
Eat and Drink-All-You-Can Buffet
Food: 5-courses with salad and dessert
Drinks: Juices and Cocktails
good for 1 hour only
It's not the you-won't-be-able-to-taste-everything kind of buffet like that in 'Vikings' where foods are overflowing. Their buffet only has 5 kinds with a basic salad, dessert and cocktails. Since they are from the fresh minds of the culinary students, expect a feast in your palette... but some, at times, are not yet chef-perfect (due to my experience of a chewy tough beef).
|5 course buffet which includes rice, pasta, finger food|
|appetizers (see pic below) and a chewy tough roast beef|
|Pineapple Juice and Tequila Sunrise|
|This has a Caribbean mix that I really love.|
|Unfortunately, they removed this in the buffet promo,|
|but you can still buy it by the glass|
They also have a separate function room where you can gather and enjoy Lab's cuisine.
