We Filipinos have one thing in common—we all love to feast. We normally do this during annual festive occasions or locally known as fiesta. But here in Baclaran, you don’t need to wait for the next annual fiesta as you can have a sumptuous feast anytime you want!
Pista Food Hall offers heaps of hearty food perfect for any celebrations may it be a birthday, anniversary, job promotion, or even just a normal cheat-day!
Food & Price
Their buffet comprises mainly of Filipino food normally present in fiestas such as pancit, lumpia, caldereta, halo-halo, etc. They also serve Mongolian Rice Bowls, Shabu-shabu, salads, and seafoods! Everything was delicious but my personal top picks that I enjoyed the most were the Mongoloan Rice Bowls and Shabu-shabu!
Not everything is precooked. Most are to be cooked upon request so food is guaranteed fresh. Just like the Mongolian Rice Bowl and fresh crabs which you can request the crew to cook on the spot. Shabu-shabu on the other hand, is to be cooked on your own table which I find enjoyable and adds to the fun of feasting! Noodles, seafood-buns, raw shrimps, eggs, corn, and vegetables are all provided.
And of course, no buffet is complete without desserts. They even have chocolate fountain, cookies, bread sticks, ripe mangoes, chocolate sticks, and our all-time favorite halo-halo! The cookies and bread sticks were all crunchy which means they are all newly refilled.
Their halo-halo ingredients are also served buffet style so you can freely create your own and choose only the ingredients you want to eat. Shaved ice, milk, and sugar were also available.
And what’s more exciting is that for only P455, you can enjoy unlimited Shabu-shabu, Mongolian Rice Bowls, Salad, Filipino Buffet, and desserts! That’s super sulit compared to having unli samgyupsal for just the same price!
For those who are willing to shell out more, you can enjoy Paluto all-you-can for P888 (with unli crabs), and P688 (w/o unli crabs). If you’re really into fresh foods prepared and cooked for you on the spot, this should sound great to you!
Aside from mouthwatering and sumptuous feast, the overall ambiance is another asset of this food spot. There’s an artsy side with Barrio-inspired interiors, and another side with classy atmosphere. The place is fully-airconditioned, clean, and well-lit.
It’s also super spacious! Seats were not jammed together and there’s ample space to walk around. So don’t hesitate to bring all your friends and family here. Feasting is indeed best done with the people you cherish. And special occasions and celebrations are best held in Pista Food Hall!
Buffet was sumptuous and refilled promptly. The crew were neatly dressed, accommodating, and attentive. What also impressed me was that eventhough the place is huge, you can spot the staff almost everywhere. All the available tables were dirt-free which means they clean immediately.
The paluto service was quite fast. You can wait for it and watch the crew cook it right in front of you, or you may also ask them to deliver your cooked food on your table.
