Get a Load of Japanese and Korean Food at Sambo Kojin SM Fairview

By Posted on 2 m read

What better place to be when you’re craving for Japanese or Korean food, or even both, than in a joint that offers a full load of it?

Sambo Kojin, a buffet restaurant known for its Japanese and Korean dish offerings, opened their new branch at SM Fairview Annex 2 and I was able to try it.

Sambo Kojin’s name is derived from SAMBO KOJIN, the Japanese Kitchen God, fire creates, gratifies and protects.

Sambo Kojin is known for its grilled dining experience – yakiniku. Thus, they pride to be offering a wide array of premium selections of meat, seafood, poultry, vegetables, all prepared and waiting to be cooked right at your table.

Choosing from over 200 dishes, I knew it would take me some time to select and taste most of them. So I hurried to their counters and took my time to choose.

What’s good about Sambo Kojin is that they cook the food on their buffet in small portions only, thus, ensuring to get a hot and newly-cooked meal every turn. Unlike other buffet restaurants, wherein, if you’re unlucky to be late, you get a rather cold meal, which can really spoil the whole eating experience.

After getting my first glance on the selections, I made sure not to miss my faves, so I headed to their sushi bar. Sambo Kojin has over 50 selections on their Japanese menu. Ranging from kamameshi, katsu, furai, yakimono, takoyaki, okonomiyaki, gyoza, nimono, teppan, karaage, tempura, name it, they got it.

Not to mention their choices of ramen, maki, sushi and sashimi. Yum!

Korean favorites such as bibimbap, chapchae, beef stew, pajeon, and my personal fave, Korean chicken wings, are just some of the offerings at the Korean counter.

Sambo Kojin is not all about strictly Japanese and Korean, as they also have other selections under their sleeves like roast beef, pork and desserts!

Not to forget, they also have a wide selection of drinks (cold teas, fruit juices) to complement the dining experience.
