2016-05-14 Baguio Tajimaya Charcoal Grill store sign

May 14, 2016, the Baguio branch for Tajimaya Charcoal Grill opened its doors to the public. ^^,

2016-05-14 Baguio Tajimaya Charcoal Grill grand opening blessing

Grand opening ceremony =)

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)

2016-05-14 X at Baguio Tajimaya Charcoal Grill

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! =) )

2016-05-14 Baguio Tajimaya Charcoal Grill dining area

Like most days these days, the day for this food adventure with complete Tres Marias came pretty quickly. (Zoom-a-zoom-zoom through 2016!)

The sumibi yakiniku. In english: Charcoal grill. \m/

After joining in the grand opening customs, we were led into the swanky dining area with tables with centers accentuated by circular grill receptacles.

2016-05-14 Baguio Tajimaya Charcoal Grill salad starter and side dishes

A starter of salad  and side dishes: Moyashi namuru and kimuchi. =D

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. (“,)

2016-05-14 Baguio Tajimaya Charcoal Grill condiments soy sauce, gochujang, freshly grated wasabi and the Japanese version ssamjang

Condiments, condiments, condiments. Wee!

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!

2016-05-14 Baguio Tajimaya Charcoal Grill grillables beef strips, squid rolls, cuttlefish, Japanese sausage

Grill-ables for the opening celebration: Beef strips, squid rolls, cuttlefish, Japanese sausage (“,)

Finally, the beef, squid rolls, cuttlefish slices and Japanese sausage were ready for consumption. Hooray! (I’m lovin’ that tasty sausage.)

2016-05-14 Baguio Tajimaya Charcoal Grill feasting

Let the feasting begin! Full concentration in the cooking, my better half! ^^,

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.)

2016-05-14 Baguio Tajimaya Charcoal Grill menu

The Tajimaya menu.

(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.)

2016-05-14 Baguio Tajimaya Charcoal Grill resting after the meal

The calm after the gorging storm. =b

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!

2016-05-14 Baguio Tajimaya Charcoal Grill elevator for disabled and smoking area for the smokers

Get a load of Tajimaya’s additional facilities. Elevator for PWD patrons and a smoking area for smokers.

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

    Tajimaya charcoal grill looks like a nice place to eat. I hope I can try this soon.

    • XiNE says :

      Hello, lån! Sure is a nice place, this Tajimaya Sumibi Yakiniku. And to think of installing a lift for persons with disabilities, how forward thinking, caring and socially aware of them. We’ll have to try more dishes before I get a more thorough post up about the tastes but so far, so good. I hope you enjoy Tajimaya Charcoal Grill whenever it is you get to visit! (“,)

    First time to dine in Tajimaya, service was poor and surprisingly the food that I ordered which was the bibinba has a strand of hair, after thirty minutes of waiting really a strand of hair? thirty minutes and our order was not yet complete so I suggest that maybe, for the wait staff to be alert and at least somehow a kind of refreshment will do like water for instance. But thirty minutes is way too long to wait on food.

    • XiNE says :

      Hello there, anonymous comment-er! So sad to hear that you had this kind of experience. I do hope you alerted management about the hair in your bibinba as well as told them your suggestions about quicker and more attentive service so that they could start improvements on these fronts as early as now (six days from grand opening). I hope you have better dining experiences in the future in the City of Pines and elsewhere! (“,)
