Chef Laudico Guevarra's Buffet
|The 1920's House turned restaurant|
I was inspecting a project site in Mandaluyong with my best friend along Lawson St. in Addition Hills last week, and it was him who suggested the idea of trying out Guevarra's a few corners away along Argonne St.
Tucked hidden from the main streets of San Juan and Mandaluyong is Chef Laudico Guevarras's. It's a 1920's house that is converted into a buffet restaurant showcasing the culinary masterpieces of Chef Roland and Chef Jacqueline Laudico.
From the narrow streets, you will be guided through the entrance gate to the parking area. We were a bit early for dinner, but I'm guessing it's more challenging during peak hours and weekends.
Inside, the halls and rooms of the house were converted in dining areas, and function rooms. The decors are simple, reflecting a vintage vibe with old photographs and art hanging from white panelled walls.
A huge hall on the side of the house showcases the creations of our local Masterchefs, displayed on a long buffet station. Don't hassle yourself in making choices because you need to try everything. My favourite would be the Lechon and the Angus Beef Kare Kare.
What's even more admirable about the restaurant is the price. They are actually cheaper than some of the buffet restaurants in Malls.

Please take note, that dining is done in batches, so be mindful of the time to maximise your meals. If you arrived late, say 6 PM, you can opt to avail the early dinner rate for the remaining hour, or just wait until 7:30 PM for the full 3 hour dinner service. The only difference with the batches is the price and the time constrains, but the food is just the same.

It's a good place to bring your family for any occasion. I will be coming back with friends and this time, will ensure enough space in my stomach to sample everything!
