Food: Valentine’s Date Part 2 – NIU by Vikings

Yesterday, I wrote about the first part of our Valentine’s date. And if you know us, our date wouldn’t be complete without food! We love to eat and we love to explore different restaurants. Our pick for that day was NIU by Vikings in SM Aura.

If you love Vikings, I’m pretty sure you would love NIU more. Why? Because first the place is so classy. The ambiance is superb and the food all looked so appetizing. There’s a wide range of food and drinks to choose from. The price is also worth it. Budget is ~ P1500.00 per pax, including taxes.

Each section is designed differently, but are all equally classy

A way to serenade the customers

It would be a great idea to reserve your seats days before you plan to eat there. It wouldn’t cost you more. That way you could be the first to be seated and you could even request for a specific place. As for us, I reserved a table where Paulo and I can sit beside each other, and not in front of one another. 🙂

???????????????????????????????

Don’t forget your table number! The staff would ask you this if they would bring your food to your table.

Let’s now go to the food and drinks stations.

And of course wine.

Even if I wanted to try all of it, my stomach couldn’t take it anymore. :/ We also ate gelato, crepe, lobster miso soup, and pasta. There were a few more stations in which we haven’t tried. So we’ll get back to it next time.

Unfortunately, they didn’t have order-only dishes as advertised by other bloggers. :/ I was really looking forward to that pa naman. Other than that, the experience is superb. I would definitely go back here. 🙂

This post wouldn’t be complete without our picture! 🙂

See the plates? Haha.

Last thing, they don’t charge for leftovers. So you can get everything you want. 😀
