Lunch Buffet and Dinner Buffet Schedule for Peñafrancia Fiesta 2016

Before anything else, note the buffet start times:

Lunch Buffet: 11am – 2pm
Dinner Buffet: 6pm – 9pm

Jimmy and Tang’s Restaurant will serve lunch buffet and dinner buffet, as usual, on all weekends of September. Specifically, the lunch and dinner buffet will be available on the following dates of September:

September 3 (Saturday)

4 (Sunday)

10 (Saturday)
Peñafrancia Fiesta event for this day: The Regional Band, Majorette and Fancy Drill Competition at 7am

After (watching or participating in) The Regional Band, Majorette and Fancy Drill Competition, you’ll probably be in the mood for a hearty lunch. So head on over with your team or your family and friends to Jimmy and Tang’s Restaurant for their Weekend Lunch Buffet.

11 (Sunday)
Peñafrancia Fiesta event for this day: The 2016 Naga Highland Triathlon at 5am

17 (Saturday)
Peñafrancia Fiesta event for this day: Fluvial Procession at 4pm

If you’re in Naga for the Fluvial Procession, you may have either the lunch or dinner buffet.

If you’re already in Naga at lunch time, try the lunch buffet at Jimmy and Tang’s Restaurant. Then you can proceed to your choice Fluvial Procession vantage point right after.

Or you may want to eat after the Fluvial Procession, instead. Then you should come for their dinner buffet on that Saturday. Of course, if coming for a post-Fluvial Procession dinner buffet, it’d probably be best to walk to Jimmy and Tang’s Restaurant. At that time, Magsaysay and Peñafrancia Avenue is likely to be too crowded for both public and private vehicles to make much headway.

18 (Sunday)
This is the feast day of Our Lady of Peñafrancia – so this is Fiesta Day!

If you have special, from-out-of-town guests for the fiesta, just bring them over to Jimmy and Tang’s Restaurant. You won’t have to cook anything, and you can be sure lunch will be a treat.

24 (Saturday)
Peñafrancia Fiesta event for this day: 4th Regional Cheer and Dance Competition at 4pm

25 (Sunday)

Weekend Lunch Buffet and Dinner Buffet Sample Menu

A Jimmy and Tang’s Restaurant buffet typically includes soups, salads, pastas/noodles, desserts, fish, meat, and seafood.

And a lunch or dinner buffet at Jimmy and Tang’s COULD (please note the operative word, “could”) include the following: Kinunot, Lechon Kawali, Dinuguan, Kare-Kare, Crab Relleno, Bopis, Baby Back Ribs, Pork Barbecue, Kinalas, Tinumtuman, Bicol Express, Laing, Fried Lumpiang Ubod, Tempura, Tanguigui Steak, Paella, Clam Pasta, Carbonara, Nacho Salad, Green Salad, Mixed Veggies, Ginatang Mais, Mini Burgers, Cheese Pimiento Sandwich, Chicken Sandwich, Ham & Cheese Sandwich, Caramel Tart, Ice Scramble, etc.

Again, let me repeat that not all of the above can be present at any single buffet and that the actual menu for any given buffet could vary depending on the availability of ingredients.

[Of course, during the Anniversary Buffet last November 2015, every one of the above-mentioned dishes made an appearance.]

CONGRATULATIONS po Sir Jimmy & Ma’am Tang for a Very, very, very Successful 1st day of Jimmy & Tang’s Restaurant’s 1st…

Snacks or Dessert Anyone?

If you’re in the mood for a light snack or a great appetizer, try their Chicken Crepe Pockets. These divine treats are crepe filled with creamy and flavorful roast chicken meat tied into cute little bundles with a piece of spring onion then served with a sour cream dipping sauce.

And if you’ve a hankering for something sweet, try (in the words of Ma’am Tang) “The Leche Flan to Die For.” It is smooth, melt-in-your-mouth, creamy, caramel-ly, but not overly sweet – it will hit just the right spot for Pinoy leche flan fans.
