Davao has been a growing market in terms of retail and restaurant industry. Many are confident to invest here, with the 3 new malls that had opened, many are opening a restaurant branch here in the Durian city. With the cleanliness, less traffic and peaceful environment we have here in Davao, another player on the buffet restaurant industry has newly opened a branch outside Metro Manila. A sign that Davao city is indeed a good place to invest not just on restaurant but also on the retail industry. Davao’s lifestyle has upgraded from just dining at a simple BBQ places around the city, to dining at different restaurants that before were only found in Metro Manila. With the growing market of people coming in and out of the city, its good to know that a lot of good brands and restaurants had build confidence in opening here in Davao.
Vikings, the largest buffet restaurant in the country has opened at the SM Lanang Premiere, with a seating capacity of 500 guests. Vikings Lanang is their first branch outside Metro Manila, as they want to bring luxury buffet to Davao at an reasonable rate and with more choices of food. The Davao lifestyle had somehow grown, as Davaoeno’s are learning to spend their money on good food & on good lifestyle brands. The first of a kind in Davao dining, Vikings features full live kitchen in all the 7 stations they have. Each branch of Vikings has its own interior, therefore its exciting to take time and visit Viking’s other branches across Metro Manila. Vikings Davao has a modern Filipino theme. They want to bring to Davao
After months of waiting as to when Vikings will open, finally it had its soft opening a few weeks back. We were all wondering as to why people are patiently lining up and willing to wait just to try Vikings. Then finally our turn came, we were all excited to dine. As our family is a foodie bunch, we were told to be there by 5:30pm, to avoid our reservation cancellation. There were various food stations that were found inside, they are the Filipino, American, Japanese, Chinese, Korean & Mediterranean food. They also have the Carving stations, Anti-pasti, pasta station and other food from different parts of the world.
When your inside, its not just your tummy that is feasting, as your eyes are also feasting as everything is displayed right before you. Its indeed a feast fit for a king, a freedom for diners to choose as to what they like and eat like a viking!
