This weekend, my boyfriend came to visit me (yay!!!). I was already planning as to where to take him when one of my foodie friends, Harvard of Always Hungry PH, extended the invitation to us for Buddha Bar Manila’s 7th Anniversary party. We thought why not, since its a Friday night anyway.
I started with this cocktail – I think they call it the Mind Eraser (rum based with pineapple – I love my cocktails a bit fruity). And waited for the food to be served. The theme of Buddha Bar Manila’s 7th Anniversary is Crazy Rich Asian and my friend Raina, dressed the part. They had the veteran DJ Manolet Dario spinning oriental lounge music to complement the night too. I’ve always enjoyed chilling at Buddha Bar as it has a very cozy ambiance.
My boyfriend and I arrived a bit late so everyone else already ate. I loved everything they served us especially their sushi. The one in photo is the Salmon Flake Volcano Roll. They also served as some nachos – first time I tried it. It was a bit spicy but perfect to snack on while having your drinks. And then, the dessert was chocolate-y good. Not too sweet, just the perfect amount to make you want more.

And then I went for a second Majestic drink because it was so good! It was during this that the host announced that there’s a raffle so I went to the reception to write my name and Mehdi’s. And guess what, he won! We actually waited for the raffle winner announcement before we left. You know what they say, good things come to those who wait haha.
