Starting Feb 10, 2011, Marina Oyster, Seafood and Grill now offers a breakfast buffet, inclusive of drinks, for only php 149.00 That's daily, from 6 am to 10 am. Marina is located at SM City Skygarden.
Just heard this news from a friend who happens to pass at SM City everyday going to and from work. At first, I didn't believe her. A buffet meal, plus drinks, for only php 149..?? She must be kidding me..
So, I have to see it for myself. And to my surprise, it is really indeed at php 149.
Normally, a breakfast buffet would cost someone php 150, but without the drinks! If you're familiar with Something Fishy, in Libis, they are famous for their midnight to morning breakfast buffet. They have a long array of dishes, from soups to rice, up to desserts. But they don't offer free drinks unless you order it separately or you opted to drink water.
With Marina, they may not have the long array of dishes Something Fishy can offer, but I'm pretty sure it's enough to make anyone full or "busog". They also have soups, rice, desserts and drinks (juice or coffee). They have the staple breakfast dishes, which can be seen on a typical Pinoy table, like scrambled egg, hotdogs, corned beef, tapa, adobo, dinuguan, pansit. They also have pandesal or pancakes, your choice. For those who have sweet tooth, they have kakanin, like biko and cassava, and fresh fruits.
|Pansit for looong life.. :)|

|Cheers to a good life!|
The place isn't too crowded. You have the option to stay inside (non-smokers) or outside (smokers). The inside is well lit and it looks so tidy. I love the interiors, it's mostly in white. Plus, you can have the view of the city, since it's situated atop SM Skygarden, you'll witness the hustle and bustle of the city life, from the flooded (by cars, buses, etc) street of EDSA to the huge crowd of people going to and from their work.

Also, one major good news! If it's your first time to dine at Marina, their courteous manager would approach you and would pleasantly ask how's the food and your stay. He will also have you sign a form (i guess it's a survey form) and after that, will surprise you by giving you a discount coupon which you'll definitely use on your next visit. And guess how much is the discount? 50%.. That's for real..
So, dine now at Marina. Their breakfast buffet awaits you...
