Whilst reviewing Amorita as an overall resort, one of the major "CONS" that we wrote down was Saffron Restaurant and I am extremely confused how other guests liked this restaurant.
My husband and I are foodies and my husband actually works in the restaurant business....We ate here for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and each and every single meal time, we were left disappointed. Buffets in the morning were so bland, it was mind-boggling. And then, every item we ordered on the menu for lunch and dinner, every single dish was overly seasoned, and others swimming in sauce and bordering on being sweet--which was very concerning to me because I am watching my sugar intake but even dishes that aren't supposed to be sweet, tasted sweet.
To be more specific, here are the food items we ordered besides the breakfast buffet: We got the Gado Gado Salad -- the sauce was TOO SWEET. We also got the Poke Bowl -- not only was it bad, the sesame sauce was also TOO SWEET. We got the Shrimp Sandwich -- and surprise, surprise, it was TOO SWEET. We also got the Chopsuey -- it was swimming in over seasoned sauce, completely overpowering the vegetables that we couldn't finish it. Got the Pinabusog na Pusit -- SUPER BLAND. Finally we got the Longganisa & Bree Pizza, SUPER BLAND --we couldn't understand why the pizza in Saffron does not have the same quality as pizza in Azotea. Like, why?
Finally we discovered Tomar and Azotea, and ate there instead.More
