Just recently, Vikings has launched their Dine and Learn Program, which aims to provide a new and more interesting way of learning how to create food and drinks, thanks to the initiative of the people behind this group of buffet restaurants. Initially, it targets many on-the-job trainees from various schools in Manila wherein they get a chance to get into the action, whether it's inside their kitchens, at specific cooking stations or even service and hospitality trainings,

But before I get into detail about this new program, let me show you the stunning ladies room at Niu by Vikings. I've always been fascinated with how the restrooms all their branches are themed differently, but seeing this now is just beyond my imagination.

What better way to start the program than to celebrate it with food first? Check out this massive bowl of freshly made Caesar Salad with lots of parmesan, croutons and bacon.

At the Dimsum and Chinese Specialties area, there are choices that you just can't seem to avoid getting. The Soy Chicken and Pork Asado cuts both taste magnificent.

You wouldn't believe that this is tofu. Nice, right?

Or try something new at their grilling station, like these Mediterranean fare made with seafood, lamb and chicken.

You also wouldn't miss the Carving Station, right? Feast on some New Zealand Garlic and Rosemary Studded Leg of Lamb, Herb Spit Roasted US Prime and Roasted Angus Beef Belly.

You can also find time to order a bottle of wine or whisky just in case you are at Niu by Vikings to celebrate very special occasions.

The Ice Cream Station is looking very much like your Italian Gelato Stand. Have a scoop of everything if you wish to do so!

Or have fun mixing and matching your favorite toppings at the Crepe Station.

These Macarons by Niu are looking very elegant as well.

But you can always find me with my bowl of frozen yogurt after each meal at Vikings. I usually enjoy it in its plain form but you can never go wrong with having sweet and fruity toppings according to your preference.

Right after having my sumptuous meal at Niu by Vikings, the time has started and there we tackled a discussion about Cocktails and the methods on how to make them. This is truly something interesting to learn if you wish to entertain friends at home! And take note, you can avail of this program just by dining at your favorite Vikings branch! 


During the time that I was there (I left early though), I had the chance to learn on how to make a Blow Job. (sorry for the term hahaha, but surely you know it's just a popular cocktail name!)

The methods to making one are not complicated at all, but sometimes you have to be careful because you need to achieve a perfect layer of each type of liquor.

They even thought us how to make it even more interesting by making a Flaming Blowjob, which was done by layering wine glasses and setting it on fire (it's just a tiny weeny fire, don't worry hahaha).

We even had a chance to learn about Molecular Mixology, one of the more popular trends when it comes to creating such wonderful cocktails. Turn your ordinary drink into works of art!

You can either make it into caviar-like morsels, or even bigger morsels that can fit into elegant spoons. Do they just look fabulous? And yes, you can do this at home too!
