“Manong, saan po dito yung seafood restaurant?,” I eagerly asked the tricyle driver. It was already lunchtime when we completed the tour in Pinto Art Museum on a holiday in August 2016. We were all hungry and were looking forward to a rewarding meal. The tricycle drove along the Circumferential Road in Brgy. San Roque (Antipolo, Rizal), the same barangay where the museum was.
After about 10 minutes, we arrived at La Travieza Seafood Restaurant, with buffet lunch at Php369.00/person. This time, we realized that an eat-all-you-can treat would be timely to satisfy our appetite (haha), so we hurried in.
Their signages wrote, “no meat cubes,” “no instant mixes,” “no MSG“… which implies that the owner advocates health consciousness. The place is cozy and clean, and is good for family and friends’ get-together. The staff are also friendly and accommodating.
On the buffet table, delectables are spread – dishes inclusive of seafoods, fried chicken, pasta, choice of fried rice and plain rice, bulalo soup, fresh ingredients for vegetable salad (salad bar), shabu-shabu, pizza, desserts (choice of buko pandan, coffee jelly, kakanin, etc.), and cold beverages (choice of iced tea, sago gulaman, juice and soda). However, they do not have the labels for each main course/dish so I cannot exactly name them, except for those that are commonly served.
I kept on coming back for the green mussel, which I loved the most!
If you do not have allergies from seafood and no cholesterol problems, you might want to try La Travieza. It’s value for money. They also serve daily breakfast meals and offer different buffet menus everyday. On weekdays, buffet lunch is served from 10:30am-3pm, and buffet dinner from 5pm-10pm. On Saturdays and Sundays, the restaurant serves buffet from 10:30am-10pm . Special discounts (Php249.00) are given to children aged 4 to 7 years old. Regular buffet price is Php369.00.
