Yakimix Bacolod has now opened! We went on the second day of its opening and we had an enjoyable experience but Yakimix was a bit crowded because of many other customers who wanted to try the latest, hottest restaurant in Bacolod City!
Yakimix SM bacolod is open also on holidays. There is a wait to get seated because it’s new so we suggest calling ahead to make reservations. If you don’t have any reservations you can just wait by the doors until a table opens up for you and your group.
Inside, there is adequate seating and each table has a little smokeless grill that you can use to cook your own food. There are a lot of things to grill, ranging from fish, fishcakes and seasoned meats.
If you’re a fan of grilling meat and seafood, you will enjoy Yakimix! There’s a lot of delicious food!
Besides grilling your food, Yakimix also serves different kinds of sushi and tempura!
They have fried tempura, salmon sashimi and all sorts of sushi rolls to choose from, all popular favorites. Refills are quite fast and my friends and I didn’t have any wait time getting tempura – which is a highly coveted item by many people. At least it’s real shrimp and not chopped fish that is shaped into tempura which is what a certain nordic restaurant did. 😀
Beside the tempura station is the dimsum corner serving hot miso soup and steamed dim sum. There were also steamed man tao and asado buns.
For those who want to try some prepared dishes, Yakimix has them too. For variety there is also make your own sukiyaki and make your own korean bulgogi with many sauces and spices.
Here we are cooking at our smokeless grill. The plate gets really hot so if you are dining with young kids, be sure to watch their hands! We preferred to try the many ready to eat dishes instead of grilling – we weren’t confident enough to try making our own saucy barbecue bulgogi so we put this aside for the next time we come to Yakimix for dinner. We did grill a lot of chikuwa and grilled a lot of shrimp, cuttlefish, salmon belly and salmon skin– these things are worth going to Yakimix for.
The dessert area has some cakes and sweets along with a crêpe and halo-halo station as well as the ubiquitous chocolate fondue fountain. There’s not much desserts due to the limited space. The most popular area was the crêpe station and the halo-halo station.
I know you guys are eager to start grilling but here’s advice from Yakimix: Don’t allow cooked food to come into contact with RAW food. You could get sick. We’re pretty sure the food at Yakimix is clean but it’s always good to be on the safe side and we appreciate Yakimix posting those reminders on every table.
Yakimix is pretty good, however we prefer a certain nordic restaurant a bit more and a certain hotel on Lacson street. For those who are curious we feel that both restaurants are a bit too similar in terms of cooked, prepared food. You could go to either restaurant and have almost the exact same experience so for those who are having trouble getting in Yakimix, take our word for it – you didn’t miss anything.
People who love grilling and cooking their own food will get a kick out of Yakimix. Older people who would like to simply sit and eat prepared dishes will find it a bit difficult For now, Yakimix is a bit too crowded for us but we’re pretty sure that the food and service will soon be better. We went during lunch time and enjoyed the tempura, sushi and salmon. During nighttime they bring out more items on their menu. We’ll be sure to give Yakimix’s dinner a try.
