Eat Like a Viking at SM Lanang Premiere

A new dining experience has opened its doors to Davao City’s premiere mall.

Boasting its wide variety of dishes and being the biggest buffet restaurant in the entire Philippines, Vikings’ opening was not only warmly anticipated but was enthusiastically welcomed by Davaoenos. The first branch of Vikings being opened outside Metro Manila catered to ten buffet stations highlighting your favorite cuisines and an array of desserts and antipasti of your choice. Name it and it’s probably there.

We were lucky that we were able to take a glimpse of the luxurious buffet and experience eating like a Viking together with my fellow bloggers. During our visit, I was also able to grab the chefs in some stations and ask few questions about their preparation and the process they go through to come up with meals that are being served in the buffet.

It may look simple and easy when you simply dine in the buffet but each station is equipped with live kitchens where food is prepared right in front of you. Stations like the grill, pasta and pizza, crepe and churrasco will allow you to create your own dishes that add to the Vikings experience. Hot right to your plate and fresh like morning dew, all food you can imagine to eat in a one place you can consider heaven.

Now let's start this gastronomic tour. First stop: ANTIPASTI

Canape. A small size of bread with savory topping 
Insalata Caprese. Fresh cherry tomato mozzerella basil and olive oil
Deviled Eggs.


 The stations include your favorite Chinese dishes like choices of dimsum, oriental seafood, chicken and beef while the Filipino cuisine will welcome you to a bottomless  lechon, mechado, and all your favorite pyesta dishes. The Chinese-Filipino station also has the shawarma corner but these corners change every now and then.

Miso Soup

Chawan Mushi. An egg custard dish taken not as a dessert but a dish in a meal


Teppan and stirfy.
 This is my favorite station not just because of the unlimited salmon sashimi and spicy fried salmon skin but also because of the unlimited maki, tempura, sushi and teppan! All the Japanese goodness are here (the badness comes only when you overeat and bloat yourself)!

Moving to the main courses: CHURRASCO

This is where you can find your favorite steaks and other grilled meat that you can consume to heart's content! You can request for a grilled meat in your preferred style including sauces to pair depening on your taste. This section will never be complete without the carbs on the side like potato and corn.

At the side of this station is where you can find other European-style main dishes and four to five choisec of fried rice aside from the yang chow and binagoongan fried rice (that are found in the Chinese-Filipino station).

You can also find the seafood grill station adjacent to this cuisine. This station will ask you to choose your item then have them grilled by the chefs. You can wait or have your plates served to your respective table.


This station will allow you to create your own pasta and/or calzone by choosing your own pasta, sauce, and condiments. The wonderful chefs of Vikings will bring to your table your requested dish after being prepared.

You can also enjoy your favorite American snacks like Fish Fillet, Corndogs and French Fries right beside the Italian section.

Next Pitstop: BEVERAGE

This is another favorite section for me. Complete from all types of juices (of all flavors) to milkshakes, softdrinks and even alcoholic beverage like beers and wines. They also serve hot tea and coffee. You can find the perfect match to every cuisine that you eat!

Of course, the luxurious lunch or dinner comes with a certain price but of course, Vikings would want you to enjoy the buffet and experience eating like a Viking!
