My friend and I experienced joining a Bazaar last weekend. It was our first time to do that. I could say that it was both tiring and enjoying but I don't think I'll ever do it again anytime soon. We weren't able to meet the set target to be able to get what we have spent but we both felt that we need to celebrate for a very pleasant experience we had.
We've heard about Yakimix
for several months ago but the line was just intolerable. They even say that it will take you one week to make a reservation. Despite numerous positive remarks about the Grill Restaurant, we didn't bother joining the trend until yesterday. Luckily, there were less line so it was very fortunate for us.
I started with their "raw food" selection. I took all the bacon, sausages, steak, chicken, prawn, and salmon
that I could see for grilling.
Then I went to their Maki Section and got the "makis" that I have never tried before. Honestly, I only know California Maki.
I truly enjoyed the concept of cooking or grilling your own food. Although I have already tried Shabu-Shabu, but that was just more of boiling.I loved their sausage selection - Chinese and Smoked
. Five spoons
. I went back for them so many times because they are easy to cook and eat.
I also loved their Spicy Bacon, Pork Bacon with Sauce, Rolled Fat Beef, HK Style Chicken and US Fat Beef with sauce
. I know what you're thinking, cholesterol overload. Well, what the heck, this doesn't happen all the time right? Five spoons
for my super fat dish,
As for my seafood selection, I tried Salmon belly, shrimps, and cuttlefish
. I didn't really enjoy them that much as compared to my Meat Group maybe because I don't know how to cook them well. Also, I don't know what would be the seasoning for these. I give them Four Spoons.
For my Maki and Sushi, I tasted Crunchy Maki, Tamago Maki, Salmon Skin Sushi, and California Maki.
There were all good but nothing spectacular. Four spoons
Chapchae and More
I also went to try their "Cooked Food" or their Hot dishes, I tried Chapchae, Honey Lemon Chicken, Tempura and Bulgogi
. I enjoyed Chapchae, Bulgogi, and Tempura. The rest were too hard to bite. Maybe it was exposed too long on my plate.
I wish I could say the same thing to their Dessert Selection but I can't. Everything that I have tried their failed. Chocolate Mousse and Strawberry Mousse
tasted like marshmallow. Their mini cupcakes/bars/brownies
tasted bread without any flavor. Leche Flan
lacked sweetness and creaminess. Fruit Tart
was sour. I don't know if it was because of the Kiwi. The egg tart
tasted scrambled egg.
Ice Cream for Dessert
I enjoyed the ice cream because it was branded but the toppings like marshmallow, chocolate bits, gummie bears lacked quality. But for their Fruit Salad
There were so many other dishes I failed to try like oysters, sukiyaki, prawn, and crabs because I got overwhelmed with so many food displayed. Maybe the next time I visit their, I'll try them all.
Overall, I had a blast. Worth recommending especially if you're celebrating something special.
