Reasons why Yakimix SM Bacolod is worth it
300 + items to choose from
Each day, either for lunch or dinner, Yakimix Bacolod prepares more than 300 items on the menu from soups to desserts. There is a wide variety of dishes to choose from. While they are primarily serving Japanese, they have a good collection of Chinese, Korean, and Filipino dishes that is sure to satisfy many different kinds of people.
But the fact remains that it is the Japanese collection that makes the cut for your in terms of value. Just imagine endless sushi, sashimi, average sukiyaki, and tempura. All these plus dimsum and about 30 varieties to grill for the yakiniku. For these alone plus drinks and desserts, you easily get your money’s worth.
Good quality foods
Yakimix Bacolod is not just about quantity but more so on quality. Their crab stick, shrimp, and vegetable tempura are good. And so are their wide array of sushis. They are not just run of the mill, fast food kind of sushi.
I have tried their different dumplings and they are good, too. I just didn’t have the stomach anymore for siopao. And their Chinese food was cooked very well, too. Moreover, the slices of salmon sashim at Yakimix Bacolod…waaa… They were so thick and wide! Imagine, just a few slices of salmon sashimi in a Bacolod restaurant serving mainly Japanese cuisine is already more than P200!
When the dishes on display run out, the refills at Yakimix Bacolod come very fast. That is because there are several staff roaming their food area to check if the serving trays. If they didn’t notice that something ran out, you can just make a request and it will be almost immediately granted.
Yakimix Bacolod have friendly staff who tries to serve every request, including refills, dish out, and lighting up of the grill. They are very helpful. Tip them if you can, please.
Comfortable dining areas
I find the dining areas at Yakimix Bacolod rather comfortable because of the cushioned seats. And because of the expanse of the restaurant, they can seat anywhere from 250 to 300, depending on the group seating arrangements. Yet, you don’t feel too crowded. We went there on the third day from opening and there were so many people there. Yet, it was okay. There was not much queuing to get your food.
Food for everybody
Kids who are picky eaters have their own corner at Yakimix Bacolod. There’s the kids’ all-time favorites like pizza, French fries, nachos, and buchi. And oh, they have a halo-halo bar, too. But of course, adults can also partake of these.
For the health conscious, don’t you worry, Yakimix Bacolod has got you covered. They have a salad bar with vegetables and fruits in season. They even had whole apples as well as pomelo that you can eat for as much as you like!
Since this is a Japanese-inspired restaurant, there is a zen-like quality to the toilet at Yakimix Bacolod. Too bad that there are only two cubicles there. But thankfully, despite going back there several times because I had two kids with me, we didn’t have to wait.
Yakimix Bacolod rates are really affordable for what you get. Sure you serve yourself but at least you have the freedom to get what you like.
But as my husband said in his article, it is only fun to dine here when you are with family and friends. It’s no fun when you are alone–there’s no competition! haha
Anyway, some people have criticized Yakimix Bacolod already. I think that we have to give them a chance because they are still new. And also, well, there are people who are hard to please. You gotta try it for yourself. I am a Japanese food lover and I think this is worth it.
My only hope is that Yakimix Bacolod maintain the quality of tjeor food and quantity of dishes. Or maybe they can lessen it just a wee bit and it would still not be noticeable. But it is the quality that will matter–flavors, ingredients, etc.
For now, I love this new Bacolod restaurant. I would definitely come back with family. Heck, I couldn’t even give justice to Yakimix Bacolod through my pictures. But I really hope they will keep it up because for me, they are already doing a great job.
