Best Filipino Houston 2007 - Gold Ribbon Bake Shop
Buffets can be a wonderful way to sample the cuisine of a particular country, especially if you're not familiar with it. At Gold Ribbon, names of dishes appear above each item on the buffet, which helps to identify the choices. White rice and fried rice anchor the buffet offerings, where you will find such dishes as green beans in coconut sauce, fish with ginger escabeche, a rich, dark chicken adobo or a chicken afritada stew. The lechon kawali, or roast pork, comes with the crispy pork rind and is delectable. The restaurant is large and can be rented out for weddings (they also make sweets and wedding cakes).
I was disappointed with the kind of service this AUTHENTIC filipino restaurant. We almost eat a rotten cake when my friend had a party. I told & asked my friend if they know how bad the cake was. Immediately they informed the restaurant & they responded in filipino words" ay ganun ba...cge punta nalang kayo dito sa sabado para palitan natin". How disgusting these people...they don't say sorry or offer a refund. I strongly suggest please do not eat in this restaurant. Do your party somewhere else. It's a waste of money or you get sick.
