Wakamatsu Yakiniku Japanese restaurant in Cebu: A Must Try

It's now time to taste some Japanese dishes for a change and I just discovered a Japanese restaurant which you may like. Welcome to Waka Matsu Yakiniku Japanese Restaurant located in Pacific square Building, F. Cabahug Street, Mabolo, Cebu City.

As you enter the restaurant, one could hear Japanese greetings from the waitresses. The ambiance is very Japanese so that you feel you are brought into the set of a Japanese movie.
So it is not just the food which is Japanese. One gets to eat the Japanese way.

We sat on the floor. Wet towels are provided to keep your hands clean.

It is eat-all-you-can in this restaurant and during dinner the cost is around P560 each as long as there are no leftovers.

As you can see from the picture above, the table has grills as the customers will do the grilling themselves of some of the food. To prevent smoke from filling the room, a vacuum and exhaust of sorts is placed above the grill. The grilling add to the unique and fun experience.

I liked all the food that we ordered.

The Ranchi Karubi Yaki (Angus beef) and the Buta Karubi Yaki (Pork short ribs) especially the latter are sliced thinly like bacon. Don't expect the ribs to have a bony part. The bones are removed and what you receive is the meat. and once you grill them then taste them, you will forget the price yu paid for the entire meal.
Angus beef still to be grilled
I am not particularly fond of Japanese food especially the California Maki but when I tasted their California Maki, I tried to get some more.

We also ordered delicious tuna which was grilled as well as scallops with butter (Hotate yaki), also cooked by grilling....

Plenty of seafood choices really with grilled prawn (Ebi yaki) and spicy shrimps. Don't worry, the spicy shrimps are not too hot and spicy.
We got to taste also a sad known as Mango Kani and as the name translates in Cebuano, there really is mango mixed with some vegetables, crab meat and dressing.
The entire meal includes one round of drinks and dessert. The dessert is not their strong point for me but who cares about dessert when you are already on a gastronomic high with the main course?

I also suggest that the establishment makes available free wifi to the customers.

I look forward to eat again in this restaurant and try their soups perhaps. I highly recommend this place in other words.
