St. Mark Hotels’ Sumptuous Crispy Pata Buffet
I love meat.
And while I think I should do a major rehaul in my diet if I want to lead a healthier lifestyle, I can’t help in but give in to the really good pork dishes once in a while (I’m trying my best to take beef out of my diet after watching Leonardo Di Caprio’s Before the Flood).
So, anyway, if you are in for some really good crispy pata or lechon, I suggest you head over to St. Mark Hotel to get your fix.
I had the chance to be invited over, along with a few CBC friends, and we sure had one of the most sumptuous lunch.
St. Mark Hotel is located right beside the Redemptorist Church at Queen’s Road, Barangay Camputhaw, Cebu City.
Their Halo Restaurant offers the not-so-typical buffet in that they feature native Filipino dishes.
I’m talking about pork ribs barbecue, caldereta, escabeche, tinolang manok and, of course, crispy pata and lechon de Cebu (didn’t get to try this though)!

They also have Filipino-inspired appetizers such as the mango with bagoong, chicken skin, spicy dilis and more.

And your meal wouldn’t be complete without desserts. Halo Restaurant offers fresh fruits, sweets, crepes, halo-halo and many more.
I’m quite sure you’d have the most satisfying lunch (and dinner) here at the Halo Restaurant at St. Mark Hotel!
