I am a fan of Japanese cuisines. I like their very appetizing recipes. When I had my vacation trip in Japan 5 years ago, my sister brought me to this usual diner in Japan. Yes, that was my first time to dine in a restaurant like that. They call it Yakiniku
meaning "grilled meat". You can cook your meal by yourself. It's fun and exciting! Plus the fact that they have varieties of meat that you can cook.
Recently, I craved for Yakiniku. Since, I don't have any idea of where on earth I could find any restaurants like that in Manila. I did my own researched again in Google and find this restaurant that is buffet, meaning a system of serving meals in which food is placed in a public area where the diners generally serve themselves that is according to Wikipedia.
Sambo Kojin is a must visit Restaurant for those who seeks for Japanese cuisines. When honey and I decided to eat there, we only have 3 hours to spend our time in there. Because we arrived there at 7pm when its closing time is 10pm. I even told honey that maybe we can't enjoy our dinner in Sambo Kojin since it's buffet, because some of buffet restaurants are serving good food when it is early. So we didn't expect it to be as fresh as early in the morning.
When we arrived there, it was a huge WOW for me. The ambiance is so-japanesee
! I like how it was arranged. It's in the 2nd floor of the building. It is again a WOW for me when we saw the table arrangement. They big tables for families. I've never seen a restaurant that is full of families customers. I mean from their grandmother up to the youngest child of the family, they're enjoying their stay. And that made my curiosity started.
We first served by this very appetizing drinks/shakes. Of course, my ever favorite beverage watermelon shake and for honey is green mango shake which is according to honey it is the best mango shake in town! So refreshing!
I know I was overwhelmed when I first sat on their chair. I don't know where will I start. For your information, it was also honey's first time to try Yakiniku. Since, I had experience in this I taught honey of how we will cook the meat. We first grab our first batch of meats. LOL bacons, strip of pork and beef.
I couldn't count how many times we walk in and out in the buffet table.. It was fun and super delicious! The meats are fresh which is we were wrong because we thought it weren't.
We started to cook our meats and we really enjoyed it! We can't even start to eat it because we were enjoying our time in cooking since cooking is my passion! hehe...
After munching and cooking a lot of meat. It's time for our very delectable desserts! Ice cream sprinkled with colorful candies and a marshmallow. They said looks can be deceiving. But this time it wasn't! Because we truly enjoy our desserts, the ice cream is not just an ice cream, it has a very unique taste. I think it's one of the Japanese ice cream!
To top it all, I will go back here over and over again. Since I had my enjoyable stay here. I can't explain how happy I was when I finally learned that there are some restaurants that is really suit my taste.
Prices: 400 per head.
very worth the price.
