NIU by Vikings has finally opened at The Podium! We were invited to try out their most recent branch and it was an evolved buffet dining experience.

Located on the fifth floor of The Podium, ADB Avenue, Ortigas, Mandaluyong City, Niu by Vikings has a posh ambiance. It is very spacious and well-lit, giving a positive vibe--definitely a good place for family and friends to gather and dine. 
Niu (which means “nine” in the Viking language) is the sixth installation of the Vikings group after its arrival in the Philippines way back in 2011. Established at the lavish atmosphere of SM Aura in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Niu stands out with its huge and decorative space along with its massively wide variety of international and local cuisines. Niu understands that Filipinos are excited for new flavors hence the commitment of bringing the finest dishes from all over the world. Guests can take the pleasure of appreciating delicious food while being in an ambiance full of grandeur and comfort. 

Niu takes pride in itself with having only the best. Despite being the most recent branch off from the Vikings Group, Niu is distinctly different just like how each Vikings branch is different amongst each other. With its carefully hand-picked selection of chefs, employees & staff who dedicate their excellent service, there is no wonder that Niu will definitely take its guests on an evolved dining experience. 

Though carefully chosen, employees at Niu still undergo through an extensive process of training to make sure they are committed to giving the most excellent service. Established chefs from all over the globe who have worked at Michelin Star restaurants were invited to create various mouth-watering dishes that range from Italian, French, Mediterranean, Japanese, & Chinese. In addition to this, state-of-the-art materials and kitchen equipment are used in this one of its kind buffet restaurant which ensures the guests of the quality of their food. 

With its precise and well-defined service and dishes, one can only expect the finest Niu has to offer.

Here are the dishes that you can expect from Niu:
Starting with the beverages, Niu has a lot to offer, ranging from fresh juices, coffee and tea, to soft drinks and alcoholic drinks. 
There are a total of nine stations at Niu. With so many enticing dishes to choose from, I can't decide where to begin.
Their Japanese dishes are one of my favorites. The sashimi and ebi tempura are always a must-have for me during buffets.
Century Eggs and Shanghai Rolls are some of the things I can't get enough of at the Chinese station.
These cute buns are something that both kids and kids-at-heart would like. They are filled with custard or chocolate. 
Another station that I look forward to when it comes to a buffet is the carving station. Starting from the beef shawarma to fine ones such as the binusog na lechon, Angus chuck eye,  rib eye, Angus belly, stuffed turkey, beef ribs, and leg of lamb. They also serve huge slices and will sear it the way you want to--I prefer mine rare, though, so I skipped the searing. 
Dishes that are good sides for your meat. 
Complimentary luxury dishes such as the foie gras ravioli are also available. Mmm.. I love foie gras. They also have mushroom and brise croquettas, and beef wellington.  
Their baked oysters and ginger onion crab are a must-try among their seafood dishes.
Find time to also try out their savory delicacies:
Indonesian Lamb Rendang.
Iranian Chicken Roulade.
Roasted Pork Loin in Wild Mushroom Sauce. 
Beef Burgundy. 
Beef and Ox Tripe Creamy Kare-Kare.
Lechon Paksiw.
Lengua Estofado. 
Or grilled ones such as the Grilled Pork Liempo.
Personally, I avoid eating rice when dining in a buffet restaurant, but their Paella Valenciana is irresistible.
The Salmon Mousse and Blinis and Caviar are good appetizers.
Pair those cold cuts with different types of cheese. Goes well with wine, too.
The dessert station is also a favorite and they have an extensive menu to choose from--fresh fruits, crepes, kakanin...
To chilled treats...
and pastries. 
I definitely had too much to eat when I came here. The dishes are really delectable and indulging. 
The KTG Family Picture. Because dining here is so much better with family and friends.
