My Top 3 Dish at Yakikai and Possibly Yours Too

1:55:00 PM

I just recently went to one of the food establishments that you can find in Tomas Morato. Probably, it is one of the freshest food hubs in the field. It is one of the new places in the area where you can enjoy a buffet of Japanese and Korean fusion dishes. The name of the food hub is YAKIKAI.

The name is new to my ear, but the aroma of their cuisines is quite familiar. It is indeed true because the owner of the establishment is the sister of Hodai's owner, the one I posted about before, where you can find in Examiner Street, West Triangle, Quezon City.

These two (2) establishments, share a typical taste when it comes to food, both of them serve Japanese and Korean Fusion Cuisine. I would probably have difficulty categorizing whether it's Korean or Japanese. Well, as long as I enjoy the meal with that delightful flavor, it's good for me to come by and visit from time to time.

Too bad, I'm doing this post after Valentine's Day, quite late to promote their Heart's day offering. But I think they'll be having it until the end of February since this month is the love month.

With my blog post about Hodai, I featured nine (9) of their exciting cuisines that made me hungry. For Yakikai, I'll be highlighting three (3) enticing dishes that will let you savor for more.

Before we move on with Yakikai's menu, let me describe first the place. I'm indefinite with the floor or land area of the establishment, but I'm sure they have quite a room to fill in. One thing that I've observed with their restaurant, they love to make their guests feel at home. I think it is more or less 200 square meters with a second floor that would at least give more space for their customers. It is a great spot to visit on cheat days.

If you're a music lover, the ambiance and the choice of music do jive together. Whether it's Valentine's Day or not, they do hold a great playlist. One more thing, they have this voiceover that makes announcements about your car if needed to be moved. It's like the ones in the department store.

By the way was able also to talk to its owner and asked what's the meaning of "Yaki Kai" and according to her it means "Grill Together," which is really great because of the guests coming in loves to grill, chat, and enjoy the night with friends and relatives.  

Cuisines that I love most, there are three (3) that I would like to share, of course, this is my pick for this restaurant. You may or may not agree about it, but at least I did give an option.

The first among the meals that I enjoyed grilling and tasting is their Samgyeopsal. Interestingly, I was amazed by the slices that they did for the beef and the pork. So thin that it is practically similar to a bacon strip. Their presentation isn't a simple laid picture look, but instead, served on bento boxes exquisitely. It can be stacked together to give customers enough area to grill, eat, and enjoy that tasty meat.

If you're a regular samgyeopsal eater, you'll probably look for a variety of side dishes, but Yakikai doesn't have that. What they have are the typical ones - the kimchi and the sauce - that compliment the meat. You're there to enjoy Korean Cuisine. For me, what they offer is adequate to enjoy samgyeopsal.

The next one that got me to drooling is the Sashimi, that exquisite Salmon fish meat. Freshly cut with that exciting aroma. According to Ms. Sam, they only offer the best and fresh Salmon meat to their customers. She even let bloggers see how the Sashimi is cut. I will be sharing this on YouTube Channel very soon.

I remember I once watched a video on how to dip the Sashimi or Sushi to a soy sauce with wasabi. If I remember it correctly, you only let the top part kiss the soy sauce. That is to retain the flavor of the fish meat and not overpowered by the sauce.

With Sushi (Maki), I enjoy it very much. You get to enjoy the flavor of seafood with the intriguing taste of rice.

For me, it just so happen that I enjoy these kinds of dishes when I'm in a Korean or Japanese restaurant. It's my comfort food in a feel-at-home ambiance like Yakikai. Take note that YAKIKAI have their Sulit Buffet for only Php399.

So, if you want to enjoy an Eat All You Can of Samgyupsal, visit Yakikai Grill & Fusion Buffet for that delectable dishes. Just make sure to call for a reservation because of the influx of customers.
