*This establishment is now CLOSED. Other Yakimix branches are still open.*
We had a simple company Christmas dinner at Yakimix in Tomas Morato last Dec. 21, 2013. There’s very few of us in the office and so we never really had one until now. The first time I tried Yakimix was back in 2009. I had to take photos with my cellphone secretly because they did not allow picture-taking back then. These days, I think they’ve accepted the idea already as nobody tried to stop me.
Since Yakimix is primarily a meat-grilling place, there are built-in smokeless cookers on all the tables.
I was happy to see that they still had the sukiyaki station. They’ve had it since 2009. You put the ingredients you want in a bowl and then pour some piping hot sukiyaki broth in it.
What Yakimix does have a lot of is raw meat for grilling. They have different kinds of chicken, pork, beef, and seafood.
I personally prefer the US Fat Beef as it’s kind of like the stuff they serve at Korean grill restaurants.
I was surprised to find sisig and lechon kawali in the lineup. Everyone liked the lechon kawali as the meat was tender and the skin crunchy. I was unable to snap a photo.
Desserts consist of fresh fruits, a selection of refrigerated pastries, and a small chocolate fountain with marshmallows and other food items for coating/dipping.
When Yakimix first opened a few years ago, I was very impressed by the selection. I think they were among the first to offer affordable eat-all-you-can. Many other establishments have sprung up since then and well, this particular trip did not excite me in any way as the selection paled in comparison to Dads World Buffet which charges a similar buffet rate (only slightly higher than Yakimix’s but they offer more than triple the selection). Also, I felt as if Yakimix now has deteriorated a bit compared to Yakimix then.
