Tajimaya Charcoal Grill – Now Open for Your Grillin’ & Chompin’ Needs
May 14, 2016, the Baguio branch for Tajimaya Charcoal Grill opened its doors to the public. ^^,
I’ve been on alert since fellow foodie, Angeline sent me a photo of the storefront with a huge ‘soon to open’ sign posted outside. (Thanks muchie, you! =D)
The instant Sir King Omeng and Queen Ane sent me an invite to a restaurant’s opening in Military Cut Off, I knew right away which food establishment that was. (Invitation much appreciated, highnesses! =) )
After joining in the grand opening customs, we were led into the swanky dining area with tables with centers accentuated by circular grill receptacles.
As soon as we sat down, the waitstaff made their diner dash moves of delivering the grills, eating utensils, side dishes (moyashi namuru/bean sprouts and kimuchi/kimchi) salad starters tossed in a light sesame soy sauce dressing, grillables and refreshing iced teas to each table. Covered and with handles, the grills looked like soup pots to us. (Here, I started to think, there was shabu-shabu. *hihi) With a little twisty motion, the handle came away and when the cover was taken off, we were all set up with a gridiron full of glowing scorching coals. (“,)
Race took on grilling duty while we busied ourselves with various blogger/eatsplorer rituals – photo documentation of this and that in the restaurant, updating social media accounts to inform followers of this new dining place, investigating what were in the little containers that came with the regular condiment tray of salt&pepper and soy sauce. (Yes, the usi one is me. =)) ) Oh, joy! There was gochujang, freshly grated wasabi and the Japanese version ssamjang (which seemed to me was dominated by red beans or black beans in comparison to the Korean kind which is made of soybeans … I’m not sure, I’m just speculating based on the look and what I tasted and smelled *hee) in there!
Finally, the beef, squid rolls, cuttlefish slices and Japanese sausage were ready for consumption. Hooray! (I’m lovin’ that tasty sausage.)
How’s about you browse through the Tajimaya menu while we enjoy this meal, eh, eatsplorers? Check it out, they’ve wagyu beef to offer, too. (Good timing since one place for that type of quality meat in Baguio is now closed. Aw.)
(Apologies, I didn’t capture some bottom parts of the pages well. I was backed into a corner, albeit a bright happy one, you see. Anyhoo, tuna salad/sarada is P155, yukkejan soup is P190 and Set C, I believe is P1390 … I don’t think that was an 8. =b Hot coffee is the same with the iced version, priced at P110.)
Blogpost complete with verdict and treasure chest ratings after I visit this Japanese charcoal grill restaurant on a regular day and I pay out of my own pocket. But of course, you’re welcome to dine here as soon as you get the itch to check this newest establishment off your Baguio restaurant lists, my foodie friends. Go, go, goooo with the grilling and the chomping! Wee!
Almost forgot to tell you about Tajimaya’s additional facilities. They have an elevator to make it easier on PWD patrons to get to the resto as well as a smoking area outside for smokers. Looks like Race is having a nice time in that personal space, isn’t he? *heehaha

X Marks the Spot for Good Baguio Foods is a personal blog. Everything posted in this blog is PERSONAL OPINION DERIVED FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE and since TASTE can be pretty SUBJECTIVE, should NOT be taken as THE NORM or the LAW OF DINING around in the City of Pines.
Its (prosaic =b) contents are meant to help with the question “san tayo?”/where do we go? in relation to eating out in Baguio, to ENCOURAGE EXPLORING (eatsploring) and TRYING NEW THINGS offered in the City of Pines.
By all means, eat where you want to eat and eat what you want to eat. May you have a great experience with all the places you visit and may all the restaurants you go to deserve a ton of treasure chests! (“,)
(Also, if you have any second thoughts about a certain place you arrive at, please DON'T LET THIS BLOG BE THE REASON YOU ARE FORCED into ending up anywhere. If the restaurant doesn’t have what you want, please FEEL FREE TO WALK AWAY.)
