Palace Buffet in Davao

About a month ago it was one of our nieces birthday, and as our little tradition the whole family went to a buffet dinner.

There are many buffet restaurants here in Davao from the expensive in hotels like Marco Polo to very inexpensive.

We have tried many and we keep end up going back to Palace Buffet. The one we go to is in the Victoria Plaza parking compound. It is clean and we serviced, there is plenty of parking and are open 7 days a week. There is a second location on MacArthur Hwy at the corner of Tulip in Matina.

The other afternoon when at the mall we ran into some friends and discussed going to dinner and we agreed to go back to Palace Buffet again.pb_right

As soon as you’re seated, we get up and grab our plates. There is soup, plain and fried rice, pancit Canton which is a thin noodle with vegetables and a sauce. They always have a pork, beef, chicken, fish item. Some fried, some in gravy. The other night we were there and they had crabs too. There was sweet and sour pork that was delicious, and pork asado. The chicken was buttered chicken which is actually fried chicken.pb_sign

They also have a area with sushi/california rolls, kinilaw which is raw tuna and small dried fish.  There is wasabi available to compliment your tastes.They have salad area and a desert area with little slices of cakes such as carrot cake, a chocolate peanut butter brownie.

There is a HaloHalo area where there is lechie, sago which is a type of tapioca, sweet beans, Ube which is a sweet purple yam, sweet corn kernels and Leche Flan.  All this you can put over shaved ice.

I usually just eat enough until not hungry, but the past 2 times there I was actually full when we got up to leave. The personnel are always nice and friendly and service is good and the price is under 300 Php excluding beverages.

      Rick,
      I have only been at the one by Victoria Mall. I know the one in Matina is closer to you. I would guess the service and foods are comparable.

    Hi Kuya Bruce,

    Nice article and I love halo-halo.. Ube jam is one of my favorite too. So delicious especially the ube candies..

    • Bruce says:

      Philmor,
      I do not think I have tasted the candies. I did taste chocolate covered durain candies once. Good thing the chocolate covered the taste of the durain.
