Vivaz Buffet Restaurant & Nightclub

No buffet has ever gotten me as excited as this one. This restaurant has broken the ‘quality over quantity’ golden rule by giving us both. You heard right… Quality AND Quantity.
Lovers of pork crackling can now rejoice at the churrasco grill with unlimited serves of roast pork which is dry-rubbed and roasted with caraway seeds. If crunchy crackling isn’t your thing, how about the flame grilled chicken wings with paprika and chilli? Or perhaps you would prefer the grain-fed beef with tequila barbecue sauce.
The Latin American concept behind Vivaz goes to as far as the live music dance floor where salsa enthusiasts can shake off all the calories they’ve just consumed. Perfect for hens nights, which I am coincidentally here for (in case of any confusion, I thought I should also clarify that it wasn’t my hens night). But anyway, what happens on the hens night, stays on the hens night, so there are no photos apart from photos of food, glorious food.
Here’s what we had:

I initially had my doubts about the pairing of an all-you-can-eat with a nightclub, but it definitely works here and I’ve become a big fan.
