FIESTA Resort & Spa’s popular World Café  buffet is back with new features to ensure customer safety and convenience.

"We're serving good quality food with a varied selection so our customers will continue to have a great experience with us," said Das Krishnan, food and beverage director of Fiesta Resort & Spa.

He said it is a big challenge to reopen the restaurant while complying with the health protocols and other requirements.

He said he came up with a concept  that maintains the usual World Café buffet menu, but with a modified presentation. “We didn't change the menu,” he added.

This time, the various food items are displayed on tables, and the guests, instead of helping themselves directly to the buffet, will be helped to the food by restaurant servers.

“The  customer can go around for more selection of food,” Krishnan said. “It's good exercise, too.”

Wilson Rallo, one of the restaurant servers, said customers can “come back for another plate and ask for more.”

Krishnan said their customers’ safety and convenience are  “our main goals.”

He noted that in the pre-pandemic period they only had one cook. Now, he added, they need three cooks and more service and crew members.

World Café had a capacity of 400  before the Covid-19 pandemic, but under the current health protocols, the restaurant may accommodate up to 200 customers only.

Philippine Honorary Consul to the CNMI Glicerio "Eli" Arago, who dined at the restautant on Friday, commended Krishnan and the restaurant management for the new buffet concept.

“There will probably be more improvements, but in the meantime, this is the best way and is comfortable and safe for the customers," he added.

Another customer, Education Commissioner Dr. Alfred Ada, said: “This is a new thing, and Covid-19 has forced everyone to be creative.”

"We want more feedback from customers so we can further improve our services," Krishnan said.

World Café is  open from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Thursday to Saturday. The buffet price is $19.99 for adults and $9.99 for children.

There is a special Sunday brunch every from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and the price is $30 for adults and $15 for children.

Sunday brunch customers are allowed to use the swimming pool, and management will provide a towel from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
