We all wish we had the budget for luxury buffets in expensive restaurants and hotels. But sadly, we often end up settling for less — for restaurants that are easy on the wallet, but aren’t satisfying enough.
So we’ve rounded up some of the sulit eat-all-you-can restaurants around the Metro that don’t require you to break the bank for those days when you just want to eat your cares away!

We can’t get enough of samgyupsal because, to us, it’s the most sulit kind of eat-all-you-can there is. Don Day in particular satisfies our need for unli beef and pork for a low price of PHP 399 to 499, inclusive of a small buffet table of appetizers, make-your-own bibimbap, and other ulam to go with your grilled meat. It’s great for budget barkada lunch hangouts when you all just want to binge-eat the day away!

Stepping into Guevarra’s, you’ll feel like you’ve come home to a relative’s house.
