Husband and I are big-eaters the reason why a buffet (eat-all-you-can) type would always end as our preference more than a fine ding restaurant. Aside from its fixed price, the selections are extensive and often the range of cuisine can be eclectic.
Sunday, while still in MOA and after the Ferris wheel ride, husband was complaining that we haven’t eaten anything decent that day. Truly because the lunch place I picked for Sunday was closed and we only had German sausages while going around the travel fair. Oh, we had cheap ice creams too. 🙂 So, we’re determined to get a good meal for dinner. I suggested Buffet 101, which had good reviews but because I don’t exactly know its exact location we walked the wrong way and going back was no longer our option so we tried our chance at Yakimix despite the long queue of people outside. We will be listed #33 if we are so willing to wait. You think I can wait that long? No! We left and decided to drive away at MOA grounds.
Well, we always love Makati ambiance and fortunately there’s a Yakimix branch at Greenbelt 3. I went ahead to check if we can get a seat right away and happily I was listed #3. And even before husband gets to the parking area I was already guided to our table.
Yakimix tagline Sushi-Smokeless Grill enthuse me as this would be Leoncio’s first time to eat and grill at the same time. I was happy too that we were seated near the buffet tables as it would be easy for us to refills. 🙂 There was a good assortment of appetizer, salad, entrée and dessert of course.
The fare I picked from the Japanese station –different maki rolls, sashimi, salmon and shrimp tempura.
I went back for the second time to get more of that crispy shrimp tempura
From the raw section, Leoncio and I shared this portion –thin slices of red meat, salmon, shrimp (suahe), and cuttlefish meat.
And more –bacon wrapped enoki mushrooms, the other one with carrot, cucumber and I guess its onion? We also had some spiced spareribs and squids.
And the gripping piece of our dining experience, the grilling part. 😀
Think Leoncio is enjoying it very much because back home he says, he’s not enjoying grilling alone (remember NY and my Birthday when he was assigned to grill the baby back ribs, hehehe). He loves grilling and eating at one fell swoop!
I ate those meat slices ala-Korean style bulgogi –wrapped in lettuce and dipped is sate sauce!
I can’t remember how many times we went back at the raw section for shrimps and squids! It was so sulit! By the way, we didn’t touch any from the cooked portion.
From the dessert station, we ended our dinner with these –leche plan, cheesecake, fruit tart, mini-choco cupcake, strawberry mousse.
Fresh Fruits –watermelon, oranges and pineapple
And DIY Halo-Halo! They also had Selecta ice creams and green salad station, and cakes from Red Ribbon.
Leoncio washed down with his blue Lemonade while I had soda.
I was so full, probably the same feeling I had when we dined at Spirals last year. And it would be a lesson all over again for me, never eat buffet during dinner time. It wasn’t meant! Hay!
Because Yakimix didn’t disappoint me (not a little), we could go sometime again probably after the lent is over. And Yakimix had wonderful service to account, attentive wait staffs, fast refills and comfortable setting aside from its being smokeless.
However, I find the buffet price a little pricey for me during weekends. 😐
