Sambokojin: Yakiniku Smokeless Grill

For the past two months, I went to Sambokojin 5 times and I thought it would be fitting to post about it here considering how much I enjoy eating there. The best thing about Sambokojin, for me, is being able to grill on your own and feel like you’re a chef. This is especially good for me, since when it comes to cooking skills, I’m lacking. Aside from the experience, the flavors and the tenderness of their meat make the casual-buffet-dining experience top notch.

Considering the fact that they only charge

  • 549PHP for Mon-Fri Lunch
  • 629PHP for Mon-Fri Dinner
  • 659PHP for Sat-Sun-Holidays 

gives you even more reason to visit this food establishment.

Check out the photos below for their delicious buffet spread:

For the Japanese and already-cooked spread, I was only able to take a few photos, but take note that these sections have a lot to offer.

Their service is great as well! Waiters will go back and forth to your table making sure your dining needs are attended to. Also, don’t worry about Sambokojin getting too crowded. I hate it when that happens not only in buffet restaurants, but anywhere else! Although I’ve only visited their Southmall branch, they’ve managed to keep the whole restaurant, in such a way, people don’t have to feel like sardines lining up to get food from the buffet spread even if there is considerably a big amount of people in the restaurant. 

Some of you who’ve come across this post might be choosing between Sambokojin and the more spread out Yakimix. I’ve only tried Yakimix once and for me, once was enough (although I’m thinking of giving it another chance). The buffet spread in Sambokojin is less than that of Yakimix’s, but I find Yakimix’s food bland. 

So for now, I say, go for Sambokojin over Yakimix!
