All You Can Eat Japanese Grill, Tajima Yakiniku

August 31, 2015 Ellyna Tjohnardi
Oh when the dollars have decided to on a hiking trip, they are so determined and unrelenting until they reach the top! The weakening of Rupiah against US Dollars lately has caused, or perhaps even resulted (in economy, it's a chicken and egg cycle), the prices of meat to hike as well, especially that of beef and chicken. Ok, sounds like a good time to become a vegan? Now, wait just a minute there, because despite all this debilitation, there's actually a nice Japanese yakiniku restaurant that offers an All You Can Eat (AYCE) set menu for a ridicolously good price!
Tajima Yakiniku (www.culinarybonanza.com)
Tajima Yakiniku's All You Can Eat deal, is available at its stand-alone restaurant at Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK) and at its branch inside Thamrin Nine office building. The latter branch was open not too long ago, and it still retains all the signature interior elements of the main restaurant at PIK.

The AYCE price starting from IDR 168,000++ / adult or IDR 128,000++ / child, is an all inclusive set, that already includes Gohan (steamed rice), Soup, Ocha, Appetizers, Meat and Haagen Dazs, all of which are top up-able, means if you like the appetizers so much, you could have 2nd or even 3rd helpings, but I'd rather save the space in my tummy for the Haagen Dazs ice cream LOL!

1. Choice of Appetizers:
Tori Karaage / Chicken Katsu / Tajima Croquette / Tajima Menti / Kakuteki / Kimchi / Tyoregi Salad / Potato Salad / Namuru / Gyu Suzishoyu. We shared and tasted all of the appetizers and whatever your choice is, it would be good (well, at least for my standard).

2. Choice of meat:
Every set will have 4 core meat, the karubi (ribs), chicken, harami (rump steak) and chicken sausage. Set B would give you additional pork belly and jo misuji / jo tongue (jo tongue is the rear part of the tongue, hence more tender and less chewy). When you sit at the table, you will be served with the full set bu default, unless you have been here before and already know which meat that you will eat. Yes, apparently this happens, especially with regular customers here.

And, of course your unlimited choice of Haagen Dazs! This is probably the 'cherry on top' for some of us who come here to dine the AYCE. Well, in fact there aren't many (if any) restaurants out there who dare to offer unlimited Haagen Dazs ice cream and this certainly has its own appeal.

This is one of the rare example where the all you can eat offer is truly worth every cent and you'll feel well sated with all the premium meat served (don't forget the unlimited Haagen Dazs too!). Absolutely recommended, I'll swear in the name of Loki LOL!
