Sambokojin Yakiniku Smokeless Grill

I haven't seen my college friends lately and since a friend is getting transferred somewhere a little farther where Sambokojin branches are located, we decided to meet at Sambokojin.

Sambokojin is a Yakiniku-style, eat-all-you-can restaurant. Yakiniku means "grilled meat" in Japanese. It is one of the newest restaurants of the Triple V group, who also owns Dad's, Kamayan, Saisaki and Something Fishy.

I went to Sambokojin a few months ago to do a food review for my company's food club and I must say that I loved the whole experience that I brought my college friends with me this time.

I called Sambokojin that afternoon to reserve a table. This is a must-do for everyone, and you must arrive between 6:00pm to 6:15pm to secure your reservations.

Luckily, my friend and I arrived before 6:00pm. While waiting for others to arrive, we got few meats to grill.

The meats are marinated to different sauces like Bulgogi, Teriyaki, Sambokojin sauce and many more. There are also plain ones like ox tongue (a personal favorite) and pork liver. Also available is fish, vegetables and other seafood.

There is also a sushi bar and other cooked dishes available, but we really love to grill. hahaha. :)
Our friends finally arrived, and after a few trips back to the buffet table, we finally got dessert.

My friend got us pastries like cheesecake, brownies and eclairs. And I got myself ice cream (of course), Sambokojin serves The Big Scoop ice cream! Yummy! :)

True enough, the first-timers fell in love with Sambokojin that they couldn't stop grilling the beef. Personally, I love the thinly sliced beef that you'd want to eat it straight from the grill.

The dinner costs Php 595 per person during weekdays, which is worth the taste and the experience and the good service.

Here are other pictures:

We ended our dinner with "Let's go back next month!"

  3. It looks nice ha. Wala na ba other branches? I wanna try.

  4. Sadly, Sambokojin only has two branches: Eastwood and EDSA Greenhills. You should try it! :)

  5. I think Sambokojin is a perfect venue for reunion or for a big gathering, as they offer a wide range of foods in eat-all-you can manner with a reasonable price. And the place looks very comfortable to go to. The photos are very appealing as it makes me drool and crave for another Japanese food.


    1. Hi Queenie! Yes, it's usually for big groups. ;) You should try it! The meats are usually beef and there are so many choices for seafood and sushi. :)
