DINING at the Broadway Restaurant of the Tinian Dynasty Hotel & Casino is nothing new. I’ve been there countless times in the past five years but this time, it was different. Gone were the hundreds of diners who come in for the buffet breakfasts and lunches. We were there for dinner for the first time, after the Broadway was transformed into an ala carte restaurant.
Attentive staffers supervised by Executive Sous Chef Ramonsito Apostol came to assist me and my dinner buddies Chell, Geoffrey and his family.
The Broadway Restaurant dinner is a destination fit for someone who has been starving for the whole day. For $15 per person, you can have a feast from the cold selection bar—Caesar Salad, mixed greens, macaroni, potato salad, coleslaw, selection of daily seafood, cheese platter and cold cut meats; Western or Asian soup of the day, bottomless coffee or tea, and a feast of the most tempting desserts in the island.
From the ala carte, we tried the Certified Angus steaks—heavenly slices of Filet Mignon, 8-oz Rib-eye and sirloin steak dripping with mushroom sauce or black pepper sauce and served with mashed potatoes or steamed rice. Spear into the succulent slices of the medium rare beef with its pleasantly tender texture with its marinade penetrating far into the meat and leaving you craving for more.
You should also try the grilled pork chop, grilled lamb chop and island style fried chicken.
I ordered the Catch of the Day, grilled slices of unagi served with steamed rice and tartar sauce. I also ordered finadeni sauce and we all traded slices of each other’s dishes.
The dessert station is a temptation bar by itself. Not exactly a dessert lover myself, I was surprised to find all the items not that sweet.
The feast was not over. At noon the next day, Chell and I headed to the Broadway Restaurant again to try the Continental Breakfast which is $15 per person and includes an eat all you can breads and pastries, cold selection, a Japanese Corner where you can get your fill of steamed rice, grilled fish, miso soup with tofu and seaweed, pickles and takwang, and bottomless fruit juices, coffee or tea from the beverage section.
For ala carte you can go Western or Asian. We tried the egg set with you can get any style with a choice of bacon, ham or sausage and served with your choice of hash brown potato, toast, the waffle which became my instant favorite, and the pancake,
For other choices you can go Asian and try the rice congee with choice of chicken, pork, beef or Century egg, the chicken fried noodles or fried vermicelli, or wonton noodle soup.
We also ordered some items from the lunch menu like the beef brisket and the fried rice which, unlike any other fried rice, tasted so good it was a full meal by itself. The salted fish was rarely visible—thin strips mixed into the fried rice but you can taste it in the flavor.
Your $10 lunch gives you free access to an all you can eat selections at the salad bar, Western or Asian soup of the day and bottomless coffee or tea.
Try the Western ala carte menu and order pasta, the Baccarat Burger or the Club Sandwich, chicken fried vermicelli, Wonton noodle soup.
Chef Ramon said diners who order anything from the ala carte menu automatically get a 50 percent discount for the breakfast, lunch and dinner prices. That means
Tinian Dynasty Food & Beverage manager Geoffrey Jones Garcia said they will be making changes in the menu every now and then, and invites the community to try their mouthwatering dishes at very affordable prices.
