Charcoal Grill Goodness : Tajimaya Sumibi Yakiniku (Rockwell)
A real gem of Rockwell, Tajimaya Sumibi Yakiniku. Yes, that is my impression after I had dinner in the restaurant. It is might as well called a hidden gem since the restaurant is a bit hidden at the ground floor of One Rockwell. The restaurant is well known for its charcoal grill cooking.
Tonight is an event courtesy of Tajimaya and Zomato Philippines. Our night started out with us meeting one of the owner of the restaurant, Ms. Michelle. After a quick introduction we were flooded by a lot of sumptuous meals that I wanted to share with you.
We started the night with a serving of the Tajimaya Tamagoyaki. Tasty and juicy fried beef egg roll with a really nice soy based sauce. A really good appetizer to start with. My foodie note? Masarap.
The next thing that served is their Salmon Sashimi. I really do not eat sashimis but still my fellow foodies insisted. This is my second time to try out a salmon sashimi and my first one was not really bad. So here I go again eating a slice of Tajimaya's Tuna Sashimi. It really turns out to be so good and I think I had about two slices. The sashimi is juicy without the fishy after taste. My foodie note? Masarap.
The next dish that was served to us is a proud recipe of Tajimaya's chef. The Deep Fried Camembert Cheese is coated and fried into a perfect golden brown color. It is served with 3 jams as side dips. This is a balance of sweet, salty and creaminess all in one.
