Yaki House


Last night I finally got the chance to return to Yaki House and take some photos of their food. I have been planing to make a post of this new restaurant ever since it opened but unfortunate circumstances always prevented me to capture photos of their food. Since this wasn't the first time I have dined at Yaki House, I already knew which dishes to order.

Yaki house specializes in Yakiniku which is basically grilled meat in Japanese. The first thing you will notice upon entering Yaki house is the Japanese inspired interior design. The wooden floors, ceiling and partition is reminiscent to traditional Japanese architecture. The warm lighting adds to its ambiance and compliments predominantly wooden interior.
Unlike other Japanese restaurants here in Cebu, Yaki house serves most of their dishes raw. This is common to all Yakiniku restaurants since customers are the ones who will cook their own food at the grill provided at each table. Although there are some cooked and ready to eat dishes on their menu, people who dine at these types of restaurant prefer the uncooked food, since cooking your own food is part of what makes Yakiniku restaurants enjoyable.
When we arrived at Yaki House last night, the place has just opened and was still empty. The waiters immediately entertained us and within a couple of minutes our raw ingredients were served. We opted to choose our dishes and ordered the squid, imported beef, and pork belly.
Yaki house provides a well ventilated charcoal grill to cook your food. The ventilation also keeps the charcoal burning constantly and minimizes the smoke in the interior. It usually takes about 10-15 minutes to cook your food depending on what dish you are cooking. Serving sizes for their dish is about the size of one whole plate. Another thing to take note at Yaki House is the huge serving size of their rice, which is around four cups.
Each of the dishes we ordered had different flavors and the outcome of the dishes depended on how well the ingredients were cooked. I particularly enjoyed their imported beef, which was basically thin slices of beef marinated with their special marinade. The flavor of their tasty beef reminded me a lot of beef teriyaki. Price range for their dishes is from P120.00-P200.00. We spent P180.00 for the imported beef, P120.00 for the Squid, P160.00 for the Pork belly. All in all we spent P610 including the rice and our drinks.
Service at Yaki house was great, the waiters were very accommodating and our orders were served immediately. They also made sure that the charcoal in our grill was always burning and my unlimited ice tea was alway full.
If ever you decide to dine at Yaki House I suggest you try their imported beef. For people who have a huge appetite you should try their eat all you can. Yaki House is located at El Dorado Subd., Banilad (beside Caltex), Cebu City. Yaki House is open daily from 11:00am - 2:00pm and 6:00pm - 10:00pm. They have ample parking space and is very accessible for people who are using public transportation.

    1. Hello minnie, I can't remember how many strips of beef they serve per order but it is good for 2 persons and more than enough for one. It really depends on the apetite of the person and if he is a heavy rice eater. Personally I am a heavy rice eater and i have a huge apetite, the single order of beef is good enough for me as long as I pair it with their rice. I hope this helps.

    1. you can ride a jeepney going to ayala,
      From there, you ride a Talamban jeepney.. - but since the location is near the bride, jeepneys won't stop there so you just have to get off after the bridge and walk a little back to the Gas station (Caltex), which is beside the place.
