I've been having Wagyu cubes dreams since the first time I saw pictures of Wagyu cubes and lots of seafood being grilled in this tucked away Little Tokyo restaurant - Urameshi-Ya. Everyone seems to have something good to say about what they offer!
Imagine this: UNLIMITED Wagyu Cubes x shrimps x scallops x oysters x sausages x chicken skin on skewers x other glorious meat - grill and eat for 45 minutes, 500Php plus service charge! AMAZING DEAL! I knew I needed to try this place out but there were hindrances:
|Urameshi-Ya, Little Tokyo
1) Buffet is only available from Monday to Wednesday
2) Restaurant opens at 5PM
It's just impossible to drag the husband on a weekday! Months passed and husband finally got a VL on a Monday so it was the perfect time to go to Urameshi-Ya! We tagged some foodie friends with us that day to make the experience fun! We were 7 in our group so we asked for 2 tables and 2 grills. We went early, like 4PM early, to secure our tables. The wait was worth it! When it was time, our server, Che-Che, asked for our orders since it was a sit down buffet.
|Unlimited Yakiniku for 500Php + 50Php service charge
Bowls of Wagyu cubes, scallops, oysters, shrimps, assorted sausages and marinated beef strips landed on our table ready for grilling! The buffet came in with unlimited servings of rice, miso soup, salad (with sesame dressing) and house tea (hot or cold).
|Wagyu Cubes x Scallops x Sausages x Shrimps!!!
|Look at the good ratio of fat vs meat! Perfect combination for that melt-in-your-mouth experience!
|Plump scallops x oysters!!! Your 550Php is worth it just with these babies!
|Orange shrimps, ftw!
|More on the grill!

Note: Monday is the BEST day to take advantage of their buffet because stocks are fresh and don't get replenished until the following week. So you see, there's no guarantee that there will be Wagyu cubes or scallops on a Tuesday and more so on a Wednesday.
5 out of 5 Stars for Urameshi-Ya!
