Last year, we had the opportunity to eat a wonderful buffet breakfast at Dusit's all-day dining restaurant, Basix. But now, Basix no longer exist as they replaced it with a new restaurant called "The Pantry." Luckily, I still have my free buffet dinner voucher good for 2 from my Dusit Wine & Dine membership so we had the chance to discover what The Pantry offers for simple diners like us. Without the voucher, a dinner for two would cost us around Php2,800. Kids 5 years and below eat for free.

It looks very inviting especially after seeing those desserts being displayed.
|I always love wood furniture and interiors because it gives a homey atmosphere to the place. On the other hand, I did notice that the place is a bit smaller or should I say it accommodates less diners than Basix did.|
I only saw shrimps...and nothing more.
|Only a few bread selection. I wasn't able to taste one unfortunately.|
|Some choice of toppings for your pasta/pizza|
|Roast Beef and Lamb Meat. This is the reason why I became full so soon. I ate plenty of slices of these meats. I had a few slices, had them cooked, and they were juicy, tender, and flavorful just the way I like it.|
I really wish I tasted one.
|I tasted these three and they all tasted distinctively delicious. The pink ones on the right tasted salty sweet, but it gives a different but delicious kick from the sweet selections.|
|I don't know the name, but the dessert served in glass (upper right) that tasted like pandan Panna Cotta were really delicious - not too sweet, but "creamyliciously" good.|
Sadly, that's all the pictures I have. I was a bit disappointed that they didn't serve any Japanese maki or sushi. I also didn't see any crepes nor chocolate fountain for the kids. But I did notice that all the food served on their buffet selections (that I tasted) were good and tasty. I did not taste any food that was bland. So even though they have a smaller selection of food compared to Basix, I think they focused on improving the quality and taste of their food from appetizers to desserts so thumbs up to that.
