LAMESA ASIAN BUFFET RESTAURANT DUBAI

LAMESA ASIAN BUFFET RESTAURANT DUBAI

Filipino food is not that hard to find in Dubai.  On every street and alley, there will always be an available food suitable to a Filipino’s palate.  My friend, Shera, decided to treat me for a buffet serving Filipino cuisine in one of the famed restaurants located at the 5th Floor of Asiana Hotel.

From the name itself, Lamesa Asian Buffet Restaurant caters to mostly Filipinos though it serves also Korean, Chinese, Japanese and Thai cuisine.

I KEEP THINKING OF BARBEQUE
I stayed at the fancy lobby of the hotel as I wait for my friend.  With the humidity and high temperature outside, not to mention a breakfast of sandwich bought at a nearby mall, I was drooling and imagining the feast for lunch.  Finally, adobo, barbeque and other Filipino cuisine to look out for.

MY BREAKFAST BEFORE THE BUFFET
As soon as she arrived, we took the elevator to the 5th Floor on the right side of the Asiana Hotel and with reservations made, we were seated immediately.  The ambiance is nowhere Arabian.  Most if not all of the guests are Filipinos.  I was truly amazed of the large Filipino community in Dubai.

The offerings of all-time favorite crispy pata, pork and chicken barbeque, lechon kawali and a lot more presented on a long table at the middle made me forget that I am in Dubai.  Seldom do overseas Filipino workers in Dubai feel homesick as they share their stories.  And maybe one of the reasons is that, comfort food is within reach.

I was immediately full that I wasn’t able to try other types of cuisine.  I was concentrated on the Filipino cuisine and the colorful desserts.  I even took less pictures as I was slightly hungry.

THE DESSERT SECTION
The array of food on each corner representing varied Asian cuisine may be quite limited but it is delectable and tasty.  The price is reasonable for such a buffet experience.

Lunch at AED49+ (approx.PhP637.00)
Brunch at AED89+ (approx. PhP1,157.00)
Dinner at AED89+ (approx. PhP1,157.00)

The dim lights on one corner where we are seated makes me sleepy though.  The interiors are kept simple.  Nothing fancy.

I’m not sure if they serve beer but from my current state, moving is inevitable that I had no time asking for a beer.  I had a good lunch and that was thanks to my friend. 

It was fun dining at the Lamesa Asian Buffet Restaurant and more so, when you catch up stories with friends on how life is, working outside the Philippines.  The dining experience in fact made me appreciate more of what I have back in the Philippines.
