The latest American Cuisine for the month of July in Vikings - SM Megamall
In honor of the upcoming independence day of US, Vikings will be launching a new set of American dishes this July 2014! Concurrently, I was lucky enough to be invited to try some of the dishes before they start invading the buffet tables of Vikings particularly the branch in SM Megamall.

American-Inspired Dishes
For the month of July 2014, every weekend (i.e. Saturday and Sunday), Vikings will be bringing something new on the buffet tables - and those are nothing but interesting American dishes! Hence, weekend dining will be more fantastic here in Vikings, and with the recent slashing down of weekend buffet prices (from P1,088 to {888), you're even more "incentivized" to try them out!

Extended Menu of American Cuisine on Weekends

Boston-style Clam Chowder Soup

Vikings' Boston-style Clam Chowder Soup - buttery, creamy with abundance of fresh veggies
This starter was incredibly amazing that my appetite got really stimulated! It featured a buttery and velvety taste and texture, enriched with an abundance of fresh carrots, potatoes and other spices! Of course, the taste of the clams was distinct making the entire soup dish so awesome!

Before I proceed let me show to you the photo of the awesome men behind the incredible dishes in Vikings!

Guacamole Salad

Guacamole Salad of Vikings - light and refreshing appetizer!
The Guacamole Salad was notably light and refreshing with buoyant avocado taste mixed with spices! What made this bite-sized dish more enjoyable was the crunchy nacho base providing the dish more character.

Hawaiian Chicken BBQ

Although this may look really simple based on the photo above, the Hawaiina Chicken BBQ is a true winner with its sweet and dynamically flavored marinate! The juiciness and the distinct pineapple taste of the meat were truly noteworthy as well the two special sauces that went with the chicken.

Portland Mini Fish Cake with Garlic Aioli

Potent fish taste in a flavorful garlic aioli sauce!
For this dish, what I was able to take note of was the distinct fish taste that was rightfully enhanced by the flavors coming from the sauce. It was simple, but suave!

New Orleans Seafood Gumbo

This dish brought together three interesting seafood ingredients namely shrimp, mussel and scallop which live up the tagline of Vikings, "Feast from the Sea".

Beef Brisket with Roasted Bell Pepper

This dish was particularly interesting not entirely because of the taste but more on the "adventure" it gave my mouth. I just found it amusing how the savory beef went well with a thick pastry base. Anyway, the taste resembled that of roast beef, but the pasty added a different layer of flavor.

Pinwheel Alaskan Homemade Smoked Salmon

A Must-Try - Pinwheel Alaskan Homemade Smoked Salmon with Cream Cheese Filling
Now, here's a dish with a stunning WOW-Factor for me! This wonderfully made Pinwheel Alaskan Homemade Smoked Salmon featured a terrific taste of fresh smoked salmon harmonically blended with the mild saltiness and creaminess coming from the cream cheese. Also, with the light and crunchy pastry cradling the salmon was really a perfect match for it! Incredible!

Now, let's proceed with the new American-inspired desserts:

Alright, we all know that one of the staple desserts in America is apple pie; hence, Vikings is introducing it to us! With its controlled level of sweetness, you are sure to enjoy the pie! However, although this is not entirely a bad thing, the apple pie made it only 3rd place among these 3 new desserts.

What I loved the most was the Key West Key Lime Pie! It just had this tangy and sweet flavor that tickled my palate, and kind of remind me of my childhood days the sensation resembles that of the Nerds candy! The New York Cheesecake, on the other hand, came in second, with its full and thick texture.


Of course, aside from these new collection, you may still enjoy your usual favorites here in Vikings. As a matter of fact, I made sure that I can have a taste of the delectable roasted lamb and grilled beef because both were super awesome!
