The Cookout (only available on weekends, lunch and dinner) is available now until December 27, 2020. That’s why you still have a whole year to plan and to EATSperience this special offering by Circles!
We would like to start this EATSperience off by showing you the kids’ activity area that Circles has prepared. When we were at The Cookout, the awesome people of Make Believe Productions did a lot of fun and enjoyable activities for the kids!
She decorated her very own apron with the help of the teachers from Make Believe!
Beanie had so much fun playing games and joining fun activities at The Cookout! Aside from doing lots of things with the Make Believe team, Circles also has a special activity room where kids can run and play around. Talk about being an ultimate kid-friendly EATSperience, right?!
After having all the fun that she could have, of course, there’s a whole buffet spread of sweet and savory dishes just for kids! It has Pasta, Chicken Fingers, Fries, Meatballs, Mallows, Waffles, Cakes, Donuts, Candies, and many many more.
Our Not-So-Little-One, eating by herself! It was great seeing her have so much fun, be so sociable, and be very independent that day at The Cookout.
After all the fun stuff that kids can do, we will be sharing about all the things that adults can enjoy at The Cookout! The first thing is this spread of grilled meat and seafood skewers which is exclusively available only during weekends at The Cookout. Diners can pick as many skewers of pork, beef, and seafood as they like and the chefs at Circles will grill it and serve it fresh off the grill!
One of the best things to get from Circles’ Grilled Skewers Spread is the BBQ Beef Short Ribs! If you are a meat-lover, you will surely enjoy these bad boys!
Salmon Belly! We love love love Salmon Belly because it has the perfect ratio of meat and fat. We probably got 6 skewers of this beautiful thing because it was just so good!
Shrimps, Pork BBQ, and Salmon Belly, take your pick!
After munching on the grilled skewers, it was time for us to visit one of the best stations at Circles, The Carving Station! During our EATSperience at The Cookout, there were three kinds of roasted meat, Roasted Pork Belly, Roasted Leg of Lamb, and Roasted Prime Rib. Our favorite was, of course, the Prime Rib!
Perfectly roasted Prime Rib! It was really tender, seasoned beautifully, cooked just right at medium rare, and the fat content was just divine. We confess we had to go for seconds and even thirds on this one. It was simply too good!
We never ever leave a buffet EATSperience at Circles without having a few pieces of their super fresh Sushi and Sashimi!
Happiness! As you can see, Mrs. Eats is happy with her plate of Sushi and Sashimi.
Before we forget, Circles also offers a Mocktails Buffet for just Php 250++ on top of your food buffet. In case Mocktails aren’t enough, just ask your server about their drinks and cocktails list to make your EATSperience at The Cookout even better!
After all the grilled food, roasted meats, and other must-try savory food stations at Circles, make sure to leave room for dessert! The Dessert Station at Circles is always full of delightful treats that will surely put a smile on your face. Don’t forget, The Cookout is available only on weekends (lunch and dinner) for only Php 2,100 per person. A great and complete all-you-can-eat EATSperience await the whole family!
