It’s been a while. I wasn’t planning to write anything on my blog because my mind is blown up and starving for ideas. I stared at my son and realized it’s my day off and it’s his day. I meant not his birthday but, every time I’m on off I dedicate the day only for him (ugh! I’m afraid lightning will strike me anytime as I can’t keep this pledge every now and then). Anyway, he celebrated his 2nd birthday on Tuesday, June 16, 2015. We’re on a meager budget so I decided to take him out for dinner with immediate family members only at YakiMix Smokeless Grill Eat-All-You-Can Buffet. We arrived 30 mins before call time since we’re on a reservation. Upon arrival, YakiMix staff called out names of their customers who reserved seats for that day, luckily, we were the first family to enter, we didn’t have to wait and were quickly ushered to our table nearest to the door.
I don’t wanna talk about the place, the interior, the chandelier and everything that housed these awesome food. I wasn’t blessed with talent in putting adjectives together to define the place.
And so their gastronomic quest began. I stayed with my bestfriend, Andre and Carl while everyone busied themselves in filling their plates with varieties of food to stuff their churning tummy.
When they were all seated, on cue, I stood up and roam around just like what I always do whenever faced with monstrous meals offered. My tip? Do not bring your plate when you loiter the area. This is because you have a tendency to fill in your plate with everything that entices you. Decide what food you’d want to eat. In case you really are staving to death, feel free to taste all their heavenly offer only in small amounts to get the value of what you paid for.
I grabbed some sweets for Dre to delight him and I really didn’t get any surprise when he toyed them and not eat ’em. That’s Andre and Playful is his middle name. Being exposed to Japanese cuisines when mom used to work in a Korean/Japanese company, my brothers seemed to enjoy their sushi/sashimi table offers. They feasted on some grilled seafood, beef skewers and almost everything from the meat selection. My sister-in-law had a mouthful of sweets and made the most out of her cheat day. Carl’s seat was almost vacant during the 4 hours food porn. He almost had a taste of everything and finally found his match with their siomai. He kept coming back for more. My personal favorite of course is the undying sushi and sashimi donned with endless toppings. My child on the other hand, seemed to have enjoyed the chocolate mousse cake I picked for him. He also had a taste of cream of mushroom and corn soup but surrendered as he dislikes hot food, he could’ve enjoyed it, though.
Being the host of our little gathering for Andre, I only had eaten those I wasn’t able to try during my first time in YakiMix. I was too busy feeding Dre and checking my family if they’re enjoying Andre’s treat. I guess everyone did. So much food for the day, it left us wanting to lay flat on our stomach on each beds.
Happy 2nd Year to my little disaster. We love you so much.
