Friendship and I were at SM North and we were looking for a buffet restaurant. Then we found one worth blogging... Cabalen Restaurant and the ever favorite Filipino dishes they offer. Take note, it's not just Filipino dishes they serve but the BEST Filipino dishes around! I've been here several times since 2007, and one of the most memorable picks is the Crispy Kangkong, whose dip is equally worth paying attention to.

We had to sample each of the dishes and see which ones would be our top picks. The photo below looks real mouth watering. The pink one is a very soft Tocino which tastes mildly sweet. There's also the sticky yellow rice, the Bopis, Tokwa't Baboy, etc.

Even if this was just the appetizer, I think one-third of what I ate for the day was this Crispy KangKong. It has a sour cream dip that goes well here, but the dip goes well with other dishes as well.

As I was saying earlier, the Crispy Kangkong dip goes well with other dishes like this Sausage/Longganisa.

Kare-Kare with Bagoong. The sauce is viscous and has a very peanut butter flavor. Pure heaven when I had the buttery texture melting slowly in my mouth.

I spoke with one of the servers just to give praise to their Dinuguan. They said that this was also one of their bestsellers and had won awards. I'm very particular when it comes to dinuguan, some make it too viscous and ruin the taste. This one has a watery consistency, with a bit of vinegar flavor blending perfectly with the added kick of spiciness. This is just perfect.

You know me well. No dining experience would be complete without the desserts and sweet stuff. The halo-halo was one of my favorite dishes since childhood, but the sweet chocolate fondue was the winner here. Can't have enough of the chocolate.

I would agree when they say that Cabalen is one of the best buffet restaurants in the country. My only wish was that they had more offerings in the desserts section... like bibingka, cuchinta, and others. To name my top 5 favorites and the ones I'd love to have again next time:

1) Kare-kare
2) Dinuguan
3) Crispy Kangkong with Cream Dip
4) Longganisa/Sausage
5) Halo-Halo and Chocolate Fondue
