When you’re worn-out with the usual buffet set up in fine dining restaurants in the metropolis, driving to Lakefront Sunset in the suburb landscape of Sucat suburb to taste the delight of dining in a more informal set up is a good try.

At 7 in the evening, the buffet opens to serve your hungry stomach. Buffet At Home is Always Yummy (BAHAY) Buffet, a concept by Barbecuers and Grillers Association (BAGA), boasts a large tent covering a circle of concessionaires giving you unlimited food.

People eat under smaller tents, in front of a stage exhibiting live musical performances. Beyond the buffet tent are stalls from the same concessionaires that offer other types of food on top of the buffet menu (paid separately).


























When I got my plate, I tried a number of barbecue, seafood rice, grilled squid, Thai pasta, and sisig. To know more about the food I am about to take, I had small talks with the friendly servers.

All in all, I went back to refill my plate for three times. I had to rest before I got back for the final round to get fresh fruits including grape, banana and apple.








The winning dish for me was the Thai pasta. It was my first time to try it and my taste buds danced in enchantment. It got even more exciting when I learned that they accept orders for delivery.

There are other great options on the list including Mongolian and Arabic foods. My stomach space was so limited that it stopped me from exploring other dishes.

I also tried Brew Kettle. My companions it tasted like an ordinary beer; I did not care, as long as its liquor then it wins my attention.

BAHAY Buffet aims to promote agri-tourism. It also wants to introduce a different kind of dining experience while promoting its partner traders and other hosts. Thus, the buffet serves produces from local farmers. Getting to know BAGA Manila makes the food there more interesting. 

On top of the food that is overflowing, what I like most about BAHAY Buffet is its being an outdoor fun. While eating, I wished I accompanied my friends because I am pretty sure they will love it there. The natural air, the smoke from the grill, the tents sheltering us from the rain, and the view of the trees around were quite precious that spice up the dining experience.
