Partying until the wee hours of the morning can take its toll on you. Wake up too early to catch that complimentary breakfast and you’ve got a major hangover to battle with. Sleep your hangover and you miss the buffet spread. Waking up before 10 in the morning is a crime when in Boracay.
At Star Lounge, we never did have that dilemma, waking up late was never a problem. They have buffet brunch.
|THE BUFFET AREA AT STAR LOUNGE|
|CLASSY DINING AMBIENCE|
The Star Lounge is the in-house restaurant of The District Boracay, a luxury beachfront resort located at Boracay’s White Beach. Set on the second floor, they serve a mix of Filipino, Asian and Western dishes on a buffet spread during the mornings and an ala carte menu during the evenings. Their breakfast (6:00AM to 10:00AM) or brunch (10:30AM to 1:00PM) are served free of charge for The District’s checked in guests, but walk-in guests are also allowed to join in on the fray (Php500.00 adult / Php250.00 kids).
|HAPPY CRISPY BACONS PLUS GARLIC LONGANISA FOR BRUNCH|
|PENNE WITH MEAT SAUCE PASTA|
Star Lounge’s breakfast, or buffet for us, did not disappoint. It wasn’t dubbed the best brunch buffet in Boracay for nothing. Aside from the usual Filipino morning fare, they have pasta, noodles and even roti. My favorites are their local garlic longanisa and, of course, their very crispy bacons.
Later that night, we were invited to try out their Weekend Grill Dinner which runs every Fridays and Saturdays at the roof deck bar. The dishes they served to us were quite new and aren’t on the menu just yet. Eager guinea pigs, we absolutely were.
|BBQ ROOTBEER CHICKEN LEG WITH POTATO SALAD AND BUTTERED CORN|
|GRILLED PORK BELLY | GRILLED PRAWNS|
|BBQ PORK RIBS WITH POTATO SALAD AND BUTTERED CORN|
|AUSSIE SHRIMP ON THE BARBIE | ASIAN GINGER BEEF SKEWERS|
|CHILLICONDOG; BAGUETTE, DIJON MUSTARD, PICKLES, BAKED FRIES, CHILLICON & CHEESE|
|BBQ JERK CHICKEN LEGS | YAKITORI BBQ CHICKEN|
We’ve had burgers, barbecues, hotdogs and seafood. Imagine anything grilled, Star Lounge probably has them. It was a sumptuous feast, but of course, there has to be a favorite. For me, it’s a tie between the chillicondog, which was an absolute mess to eat but was totally worth every sloppy bite, and the aussie shrimp on the barbie, which most of my friends agree to with. Serving size of each dish was very generous and good for sharing, but I can probably down two of those hotdogs by myself with no effort.
With shirts fit to bursting right after, we were left wondering if there’s still enough space on our tummies for our beerfest later. Burp!
