One might overlook this simple-looking restaurant along Tropical Ave in BF International. It looks like a house converted into a Japanese restaurant, with its homey interiors and traditional low tables where you sit on the floor. It's also not the usual buffet - for this one, you can order as much as you want off their menu, and they will cook each dish fresh. It avoids food wastage, food you eat is freshly cooked thus you're assured it's always hot but it does kind of drag when you have to wait for your order to come out. One technique we gathered was to order a lot at the start of your buffet, so that each dish comes out from the kitchen like clockwork.

We had beautifully cooked ebi tempura, with just the right amount of crispy batter and fresh ebi. They also served kani salad, gyoza, beef sukiyaki with unlimited soup, gohan rice, tofu steak and 2 varieties of sushi. All of these our group kind of inhaled nonstop! Hahaha

The dining experience proved to be promising, and has its novelty. I do hope they renovate the place for added visibility in Tropical Ave, given it is now also booming as one of the food streets inside BF.

*The owners would like to note that they are in no way affiliated with the Bless Okiniiri in Aguirre Ave. It used to be under their brand but the new owner just did not drop the name, much to the chagrin of the previous owners. As of date, they are still petitioning to have the Okiniiri name dropped from that establishment.

Okay, first of all I think this place has 2 branches. The one I tried is the one along Tropical Avenue. I have Metrodeal vouchers for this priced at P399 per person (instead of P850) for unli grill and shabu-shabu. I'm a fan of Korean barbeque places and I've been really trying out places like this, so I bought 2 vouchers of this place.

I think this place isn't well known because we were their only customers when we arrived. Then another group came in after us, who also had metrodeal vouchers.

The ambiance of the place is superb. Well, it's nothing too fancy but it's quite nice. There are places where you can sit on the floor like a typical Japanese restaurant. There are paintings of cherry blossoms on the wall.

Service is not that good. When we were seated, they started setting up our table. Then they started bringing in all the food and told us that we can already turn on the stove. Uhhh HOW??? (Since their stove is different from other places I've tried). Then that's it. We weren't even informed on what the sauces on the table are for, will we be the ones to put oil on the pans (since we didn't know if one "sauce" on the table is the oil), nothing. And one more thing, one of the servers was not in the mood to work.

The grill - all the meat to grill were delicious. There were 2 kinds of beef, one with the sweet marinade and the plain one, then the pork and chicken were also marinated in the sweet sauce. These are automatically served to you at the beginning. Everything is unlimited, including the rice and iced tea.

The shabu-shabu - a big NO! The soup was very very very very bland. We even asked the server if that was the soup or if they were going to bring in more (like the usual shabu-shabu places where they have different soups), but no. That's it. We told her that the soup is bland and her response to me was to just add the dipping sauce of the shabu-shabu to the soup itself 128529 the other table also complained about this, and we even heard them laughing about how the customers in the restaurant should be the one to season the soup 128531

To sum up, these are my viewpoints:
▪️ For the price of P399, this place is worth the try. I'll just leave it up to you guys if you want to try the shabu-shabu, but for me, it's really a waste of time.
▪️If you're looking for a place to have yakiniku, I think this will do, but only if the price is less than P500. So if you can get just the unli Yakiniku (not including the shabu-shabu) for that price, I think it's good enough.
▪️Considering to try this place for P850 is not a good idea.
