Mommy Moments: Dinner Date at Cafe Jeepney

 Hubby and I had a post V-day celebration last February 27. As it's a rare occasion now that we get to spend time alone as husband and wife, I decided to take my hubby out for a buffet dinner for 2 at InterContinental Hotel's Cafe Jeepney :)
 Cafe Jeepney in general is a very nice place to dine. The ambience is very cozy and unique, with Philippine jeepney (Sarao) being the inspiration for the interior design. Did you know that our pampasaherong jeep were made from the left overs of WWII military jeepneys? Filipinos found a good use for it as a public transport and had fun decorating it with imagination as the limit.

See? There's one wall decor that actually lights up :)

We got there early so we had time to take pictures. Buffet stations open at 630pm. There are several tables available when we dined considering it was a Sunday but I guess it's better to make an advance call for reservation just to be sure.

We started off on the main menu where they served an array of oriental, Filipino and continental dishes. Some dishes were forgettable but I love the fish selection. 

What we enjoyed in Cafe Jeepney, sushi bar! The options are not that much but what they have I really likey. 

Salad bar. I only tried the cesar salad and it's sooo good. 

The main attraction (for me, that is) the looong line of dessert station which is such a gastronomic delight. Make sure to leave a lot of room for dessert.

Oh - oh... purple yumminess atop what looks like crushed ice! Cafe Jeepney is a concept that must work brilliantly in the location it is in.

Like you, hubby and I seldom go on dates now because the little boy always tags along. Lol! I'm not much of a dessert person, but I'd love to try their caesar's salad! Here's my MM entry: http://www.pensivethoughts.com/2012/03/bowling-is-fun-mom.html

In college, I actually did a report about the history of jeepney's, and this one really took me to it. I've never been to cafe jeepney but would love to the experience someday, thanks for sharing, and also, belated happy birthday, Janaki!
