SEDA Misto Buffet at BGC: Watch Out for This Unbeatable Deal
We remember our first stay in Seda BGC.
Actually, it was our first EVER staycation in our life. It was 2012, the flagship Seda hotel in High Street just opened and there was a fantastic discount being offered for first-time stayers. We couldn’t resist, and checked-in.
But what to do? We were in the middle of the city, so we stayed in the comfy enclave of the hotel, with their bar, resto, and swimming pool. Then at night, we went out and window-shopped, had a leisurely walk, and check out some of the newer establishments (Fro-yos were all the craze back then if I remember correctly).
After a night of restful sleep, we had breakfast at Misto, which, even now, is one of our favorite spots in BGC. It’s tucked to the side of the hotel’s main entrance and offers a great view of the main street in the 11th Avenue; perfect for people watching.
New Seda BGC
The progress of BGC is indeed going at lightning speeds, because just like that, the renovations of the hotel is done, and it now features a new second tower, a swankier interior aesthetic, and a bigger and improved Seda Misto restaurant.
Gone is the familiar white, gray, and dark hues of the old Seda. The new lobby and the interiors of the new rooms are more bright, open, and warm in color. Light yellow is the prevalent interior aesthetic. There’s white walls, light yellow wooden accents everywhere, and bright lights in the rooms and hallways.
The number of rooms available in the hotel increased, going from 179 to a staggering 521 rooms. There’s more parking space as well, with their new underground parking. Seda fans would remember the small parking space at the hotel’s back, and the spillover parking in High Street when the spaces are full. There are also plans to improve the much loved Straight Up Bar in the hotel’s rooftop, along with the Club Lounge, gym, and pool.
The new aesthetic translates to our favorite Misto restaurant as well. The restaurant is now more spacious, and can now serve more than two hundred people. Compare that to the smaller Misto space, which is squeezed tight in the corner of the hotel.
However, we were fond of that small intimate space, and when asked about its future, Seda answered that they will keep it as an extension of Misto, and turn it into a café. We breathed a sigh of relief.
The new Misto has an expanded menu as well. At the unveiling of the improved Seda BGC, we sampled pizzas done Neapolitan style, Indian dished made from their authentic tandoori oven and grilled cedar plank salmon. We also tried Osso Bucco Lamb Shanks, Bagnet, Crispy Tadyang, and more. The Misto buffer costs (nett) Php 888, and is available all week.
With some improvements still on-going, we can’t wait to see what’s next in Seda BGC’s future.
