I was in Buddha Bar when it celebrated its 4th anniversary last 2016, and I’m proud to be part of its 7th anniversary this January 25, 2019. They celebrated the night in a Crazy Rich Asian fashion! I loved the oriental lounge music with some slight influences from Mediterranean house music by DJ Manolet Dario! During the intermissions, a dance troupe in colorful imperial costumes did the Chinese fan and ribbon dance to traditional Chinese folk music.
Buddha Bar also served some of its featured items in the Majestic Sunset Happy Hour (available daily from 4 PM to 8 PM). It’s a CRAZY GOOD DEAL to Buy 1 Get 1 on cocktails for only PHP 290 and sushi rolls for only PHP 499! I mean, Buddha Bar has really good cocktails and modern fusion sushi rolls!
Among the drinks, I personally enjoyed the Majestic, a pretty mild rum-based cocktail with a hint of pineapple, and the Afternoon Chaos, a heavier whiskey-based citrus cocktail with egg white.
Among the sushi rolls, we got to try the Salmon Flake Volcano Roll, Crispy Crazy Salmon Roll, and their bestseller The Pink Lady Roll.
We also ordered some interesting flavors from Buddha Bar’s maki creations like the Filipino-inspired Salted Egg and Shrimp Roll (PHP 380).
