Yakimix Buffet: Restaurant Review

Yakimix - Sushi and Smokeless Grill Restaurant is one of the most affordable buffet restaurants in the country.  This is our go to place, whenever we are in the mood for some mega-eating, but does not want to splurge as much.

Yakimix buffet spread is a mix of New American, Chinese, Filipino, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Seafood, Sushi Bars and Thai.  Food options is a bit limited compared to other buffet restaurants in the country and the food variants doesn't change much, but it enough to satisfy anybody's appetite.
Lunch and Dinner Buffet cost vary depending on Yakimix location, day and time.  

Below is the buffet price at Yakimix Podium, where we are frequent guests: 

Lunch, 11:30am to 2:00pm
Mondays to Saturdays P524nett / Sundays  P683nett

Dinner 5:00pm to 10:00pm  
Mondays to Saturdays P629nett / Sundays  P683nett

Note that Yakimix offers regular discounts by as much as 24% off via Metrodeal.
However, be mindful that they only have limited sittings for Metrodeal voucher holders so if you are considering a fixed date, remember to do at least two weeks advance reservations (especially during weekends).

Additionally, please come early, so as not to loose your slot. They only  allow 30minutes holding time.

Here are pictures of the Yakimix Podium from our most recent visit:

Be friend the grill :P   If all things fail ask for help from one of the very helpful crews.

As soon as seated find your way to the tempura section and  raw shrimps. These are often the fastest to run out. 

Our technique is to get cooked food first ~ followed by the raw items for grilling, as cooking may take a while.

Grill time :P

The buffet includes drinks, coffee and desserts

Big Daddy's opens at SM Angono: Restaurant Review

Big Daddy's is one of our go to fast food restaurants, whenever my boys are in the mood for specialty burgers.  

We are frequent visitors of the Big Daddy's SM Taytay Branch
(Please check here our review of Big Daddy's at SM Taytay: MamaSpeaks meets Big Daddy) and I was happy to have been invited to one of their recently opened branches during a Food Crawl event with Rizal Bloggers and Media friends. 

The Big Daddy SM Angono carries the same theming as its SM Taytay counterpart ~ rustic and  cozy.

Big Daddy's serves some seriously to die for burgers...

(Regular burgers are priced at P100+ and Signature ~ Home Run and Ultimate burgers at P200 and P225 respectively). 

Their burgers are perfect with Nachos (P125) and French Fries Cheese Overload (P75).

Don't fret if you are not into burgers since Big Daddy's also serves pasta and rice meals.

Buffalo Wings (5pcs at P155 and 10pcs at P295)

Pasta Seafood Penne  (costs P125+) is my personal favorite.

Baby Back Ribs (P150) is tender and juicy.

Porkloin Steak (P155) equally delicious.

Have your fill of delectable burgers and steaks at really affordable prices. Visit Big Daddy's at SM Angono.
