By sundown, minus Ericke because she had to attend a wedding at Barbara’s, the foodies vamoosed to Brandon’s most-loved Yakimix for all-you-can-eat Japanese, Korean and Cantonese eats. Reservation is not honored in this restaurant.
All the prominent Asian ingredients were on the buffet tables. Sushi, sashimi, ebi tempura, salads and ready-to-cook marinated meats were overflowing. I kept going back to the Korean section for japchae (stir-fried sweet potato noodles and veggies) and sukju namul (seasoned bean sprouts).
Brandon and the dad feasted on grilled (smokeless, btw) salmon belly slices, shrimps, squid, pork intestines and marinated beef while I made room for bacon-wrapped asparagus and peppered beef. The meats were tender, good quality.
A tad pricey at 580 Php per head, I think, but less pricey than Vikings, and definitely, a bargain compared to something such as Sofitel’s Spiral multi-cuisine buffet. In SoCal, where Asian buffets are ubiquitous, dining at lesser-known buffets is cheap; the price is rather steeper in places like Todai, Onami and Midori, however.
We were quite lugi, as in shortchanged, by Shirley. Such a tiny bituka!
