The Alley by Vikings in Bonifacio High Street - P799 only!

The Alley by Vikings in Bonifacio High Street - P799 only!

Vikings Group just did it again with a new buffet innovation. They have launched a fresher concept with the opening of another branch of The Alley.

The Alley is an innovation combining luxury buffet experience with sophisticated layering of concepts in its ambiance. It introduces this notion of walking into an entire alley wherein you're 'free' to take every food you want. Imagine walking from one restaurant to another and just talking whatever makes your mouth water.

How does that work?
Imagine an entire street filled with 14 restaurants. You may go into the pastry shop to get coffee and cakes. Move to the Italian restaurant to get pizza. Finish off with an ice cream from a dessert store. Each having a distinct theme. All you need to do is pay up a certain rate at the start of the street, and you may begin food hopping without the need to pay anything else.

I know it can be pretty abstract hearing it for the first time, so let me walk you through.

14 Food Concepts to Explore in The Alley by Vikings

Upon entry, you'll be strapped on with a paper bracelet which grants you the power to take whatever you can eat. Eat-all-you-can. Unlimited meat and side dishes. You may call it whatever you want. What's important is for you to have a full buffet experience! 

Kegz in The Alley for Unlimited Cocktails and Alcohol

At the start of the alley, you will be greeted by the refreshment bar called Kegz which serves cocktails and other alcoholic beverages. Again, I'd like to reiterate that this is part of the buffet. Hence, you can have as many rounds as you can. This explains why some BGC party-goers are choosing The Alley as their pre-game hot spot.

Plus, there's Ferino's offering bibingka and puto bumbong. And no, you don't need to pay additional for these. They are all part of the buffet, which makes it even more exciting and sulit!

The Alley in essence gives the same busog satisfaction with a normal Vikings Buffet. However, the overall dining experience is further elevated with the variation in its ambiance, and this makes a stark difference. Hence, if you are a fan of wonderfully crafted interior, you'll love it here.
