Who doesn't eagerly await lunchtime? This much-needed break, especially during work hours, offers a precious moment to relish packed homecooked meals or rush to the nearest food stop or convenience store for a quick bite. While these options are enjoyable and satisfying, why not embark on a lunchtime adventure like no other?
Imagine indulging in a lavish hotel buffet on a regular weekday. You have all the options available depending on your cravings, plus they’re made by chefs who have dedicated themselves to serving only the best meals. It sounds luxurious, doesn't it? At Seda BGC's Misto Restaurant, you can take delight in this kind of feast that will leave you looking forward to your next lunch out.
Surrounded by skyscrapers, verdant parks, and exciting nightlife, Misto at Seda BGC is a fantastic urban hideaway for foodies looking for that special blend of sophistication and a carefully orchestrated dining experience.
With its central location, Seda BGC is an ideal choice whether you want to treat yourself to a good meal, a nightcap, or even a staycation.

The hotel is also 30 minutes away from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA)’s terminals and the Makati central business district.
Food and Drinks
When it comes to choices, you’ll never run out of dishes to try at buffets. But sometimes, having too many options can be overwhelming. At Misto, the choices for appetizers, mains, and desserts are just right, allowing you to try most of what’s on offer.
For starters, there’s freshly baked bread that you can pair with soups, or if you want something refreshing, salads are also available. You can have the salad prepared at one of the stations or you can assemble your own, depending on your preference. There are also small glasses filled with pre-prepared greens, so all you have to do is grab an entrée and bring it to your table. The Pesto Potato Salad is filling and full of flavor, making it a perfect meal starter.
There are also maki and sushi selections, including California and vegetarian options, allowing you to fill your plate with different kinds in one go. After sampling the appetizers, the main dishes await. Misto’s lunch buffet features "specials of the day," giving you rice, pasta, and heavier fare. During our visit, we were able to try the Gambas & Chorizo and Beef Salpicao, two flavorful dishes that went well with the Adobo Rice. Each spoonful of rice complements the tender Gambas and savory Salpicao.
If you’re a fan of pasta, you can also chance upon a serving during your visit. We tried the Puttanesca Pasta and weren’t disappointed with the ingredients used. The star of the buffet is, without a doubt, the grilling station. Take your pick from the fresh seafood and meats that the chef can cook on the spot according to your liking. The Seafood Skewer was succulent to the bite, while the Grilled Beef Tenderloin was filling enough to be enjoyed on its own.
If you’re a certified seafood fanatic, you shouldn’t miss the fresh lobster and Salmon with Crispy Onion. Each guest is allowed to pick only one grilled item that will be served as soon as it’s cooked, while the rest of the food choices are unlimited.
A word of advice: Leave room for dessert. Misto’s lunch buffet features sweet treats that have just the right sweetness and will leave you with a contented palate. The mini cakes are moist and satisfying, guaranteed to deliver sheer bliss after every bite. You shouldn’t miss the Caramelized Pecan Tart, the Mars Cake, and the Banana Mousse Cake. There are different flavors of ice cream you can try, too.
Drinks aren’t included in the weekday lunch buffet, but you can order them separately if you want a glass of fresh juice, a smoothie, or a soda. Wine and cocktails are also available.
Misto is just a few steps away from the lobby, and as you glide through the restaurant’s entrance, attentive staff will greet you and assist you to a table.
As you survey the surroundings, you’ll be captivated by the charming display of desserts and mini-sugary treats. Meanwhile, at the main dining lounge, your eyes will be drawn to the dishes artfully presented and dotted along the gleaming counters.
What will instantly pique your interest is the show kitchen, which gives a peek into how the chef masterfully fires up the grill and prepares meat and seafood. The restaurant’s interiors highlight modern elegance and classic allure that create a warm and welcoming ambiance. With its high ceiling, marbled floors, and plush furnishings, settling down at your table already feels like a reward in itself.
Misto also has large windows that let in plenty of natural light, while letting guests admire the urban vibe of BGC while dining.
