Going the Distance with Pacman at Midas Cafe

A full twelve rounds, and Pacman goes the distance. I go the full distance too, with a brunch buffet at Midas Cafe...

AirAsia brings all the thrills and excitement of a championship bout at Midas Hotel and Casino's Midas Cafe, with a lavish brunch buffet. Round after round, and plate after plate, a real slug fest...

AirAsia recently hosted a private screening of the Pacquiao-Algieri bout live at Midas Cafe last Sunday, with a large screen set-up and comfortable couches as well as a brunch buffet for selected guests as part of its partnership with Team Pacquiao. 

The first few rounds featured both fighters feeling each other out with few calculated punches. I start with  a comforting bowl of Cream of Vegetable Soup.

Then, the action picks up with a flurry of punches from both fighters, and I pick up the pace with a refreshing plate of mixed salad greens.

More punches are traded, and I go for a plate of ham, potato salad, coleslaw, pickles, with sides of mustard and horseradish.

The first of two knockdowns take place in the sixth round, just in time for some Crispy Lemon Chicken, Hash Browns, Scrambled Eggs, and Nachos.

But you've got to hand it to Algieri, for showing heart and determination against Pacman's flurry of punches. But the Champ's looking good, and the mains at Midas Cafe's brunch buffet looks good too, with Boneless Daing na Bangus, Pork Adobo, and Garlic Fried Rice.

One decisive punch after another, and Algieri goes down. Again. And rises. Again. And I go for another plate of indulgent French pastries. Again.

The final bell rings, but the outcome has already been decided long before, as I celebrate yet another of Pacman's victories with a plate of fresh fruits. But both fighters earn my respect for a classy bout. After meeting Pacman in GenSan via Air Asia (see more on that amazing visit via Air Asia here at and Pacman up close at the Pacman Wildcard Gym in GenSan here on my other blog at, it was great to bookend the experience with another win by Pacman. What started a week ago with a daytrip to GenSan with Air Asia culminates with another convincing win for Team Pacquiao. The Air Asia and Team Pacquiao partnership is off to a great start, and there's more to come from Air Asia...

Midas Cafe is located at the Second Floor of Midas Hotel and Casino, 2702 Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City or call 902-0100 local 1187 for reservations and inquiries.
