SAVOR WITH THE VIKINGS (MEGAMALL BRANCH)

The Prep
To ensure that the enjoyment won't be spoiled by long hours of waiting, a reservation was done two weeks ahead. I am a nobody and to my surprise, Vikings would let you feel that VIP treatment you'll always want from the customer service side of things. We did the reservation through their Facebook page and voila! we got some sort of confirmation details, a code of reservation and certain follow-ups from them. From a stand point of a customer, an early 5-rating is well-deserved by Vikings. That's not even close to their table serving!

Warm Up
A warm smile (which I don't know if it's just because they have this new Megamall Branch or what) will be given to you as you slip into their world of food and flavors. That entrance door will bring you much closer to that perfect Filipino warmth and hospitality. An OFW kind of world-class servicing in the local setting. Cheesy. But swear you'll feel and experience it yourself if you'll visit.

Can't Take My Eyes Off You
Who wouldn't get excited upon seeing the parade of sushi colors, the mouth-watering array of desserts and some other sweets, the thirst-quenching jars of coolers and lemonades, the enticing glaze of roasted pig, Angus beef and that "Thanksgiving" turkey? I took my tour of food to eye those I would want to put in my tummy.





First Batch of Yum.
Some of the most familiar food I picked-- shanghai, siomai (japanese and pork), boneless lechon, gambas, tempura and Angus beef. These all I matched with the all-time love of all chao fan. Of all, that distinct-tasting Japanese siomai is the best. Also, top of my like would be the boneless lechon because of its mouth-melting texture and its being non-greasy it seems like you're not eating lechon at all!


Bread of breeds.
Those who are bread fanatics have a little space to enjoy here. From the simple pudding until the cakes of some names first time I encountered you'll find here. Surely, You wouldn't let this opportunity to indulge yourself much on the carbs of life to just pass by. This oozing basket of breads from different parts of the world would fill the your satiety.





Drink me, drink me not
 I so love the drinks--from iced tea to a range of soda you'll be able to experience. From the simplest distilled water (which is amazingly like it has the "spirit") up to that I-don't- love-so-much beer I let my taste buds experience. And the truth is-- I love them all but my tummy space won't allow them all at once. And so the sampling amount in my glass just to taste them all. I smiled when some people just did what I did.
A bonus would be my own version of root beer float. I tried it with the salted caramel and the avocado ice cream. One word: perfect!



Eating Ain't Over
Sweet tooth would be an advantage since it's raining desserts and sweets in Vikings--ranging from the simple sweet breads/pudding up to those with complex mixtures of creams, whips and fruits on top. If you were not able to taste these, you definitely missed half of your Vikings experience.
Since I love whips and milky textures on desserts i indulged myself on these pieces of sweets.





That Mix/Create-Your-Own Option
Define your freedom! What would be better than putting pasta toppings and mixing the pasta ingredients on your pace and choice! A wide variety you can handpick. Just Tell our friendly crews your table and it will be served hot!

Pause for a Pose
Bonus on the visit are the friendly peeps of Vikings. Of course, it's important you know those who prepare these sumptuous food we have on the table. A photo opp really is deeply appreciated to complete the "feel" of the food review. Kudos to your superb skills of flavorful food and world-class customer service!
