Vikings, Largest Buffet Restaurant in Davao City
Largest Buffet Restaurant opens in Davao, Boosts Tourism
Tourists spend an average of $92/day around 4,000php. At least 225 of this amount is spent for food and beverage according to the Department of Tourism 2011 tourist profile report based on the Arrival and Departure Cards, Shipping Manifest and the Visitor Sample Survey.
“Food tourism is one good selling point of destination. In fact, positive image of a place is propelled by good food and entertainment for guests, “DOT Regional Director Art Boncato shared.
New developments in the food and restaurant sector helps position Davao in the Tourism industry. Amidst peace and order concerns in some parts of Mindanao, Davao continues to gain positive investments with a roster of big stores recently opened like French Baker and M&S. Already on soft opening is Vikings Lanang.
Vikings is the largest buffet restaurant in the country with at least six hundred capacities. Located at the SM Lanang Premier, Davao City’s Viking branch has a capacity of five hundred for its seating guests.
Vikings Lanang is the first branch outside Metro Manila. “This only proves the Davao’s marketability in terms of investments is truly high. The potential for business growth is promising,” City Tourism Officer Lisette Marquez bared.
The first of its kind in Davao dining, Vikings features full live show kitchen in all the seven stations. The actual food cooking will not only show high-quality and fresh food but will entertain the guests on how their food is prepared.
“Each Vikings branch has its own unique interior. We encourage guests to “travel” from one branch to another, as a true Viking would from one uncharted territory to another. Vikings Mall of Asia has the more Nordic theme with elements of the Vikings ship incorporated into the interior. Vikings Marikina has a homier vintage feel to it, and it also boasts the longest buffet table in all our Vikings branches. Vikings North Edsa has a classy black & white theme. Vikings Lanang in Davao City, the first Vikings branch outside Metro Manila and first in the province area, has a modern Filipino theme,” Marketing Director Mr. Charles Stewart Lee enthused.
According to Vikings Director Mr. Anderson Hao, they chose Davao City because it is a growing city. “We thought it would be good time to show the Dabawenyos a new way of dining. Something that they’ve never experience before. A luxury buffet that’s out of the hotel but an affordable price.”
Vikings puts premium on Philippines festivals and Filipinos love for food. “We wanted to enhance the experience of “Feast” in Davao City by providing Dabawenyos with a variety of cuisines beyond imagination. At the same time, we also noticed that the Dabawenyos LOVES to eat, and there’s no better place to do that but in Vikings,” he further explained.
