We celebrated Andrew’s birthday at Yakiniku Senri, a Japanese/Korean restaurant specializing in grilled meats. I’ve featured several yakiniku restaurants in Manila and Hong Kong and Yakiniku Senri is my favorite. It had the best tasting beef and all the other dishes were excellent too. The prices were also reasonable specially when compared to the ones in Hong Kong.
Each table had it’s own grill. The exhaust in the restaurant was quite effective. We didn’t smell like grilled food when we left.
We sat inside a small room with Horigotatsu style seating. That meant we had to remove our shoes and sit on the floor and tuck our legs under the fixed table.
We just ordered 2 kinds of beef and no other meat. I prefered the US karubi cut with had some fat marbling. The fat disappears when you grill it and it leaves the beef very tender and flavorful.

The rosu cut was a very lean cut of beef. It cooked firmer than the karubi cut.

It only took a few seconds to cook the thin slices of marinated beef. It took even faster to eat it all.
The yakiniku sets were available only during lunch and were a great deal. Each set came with a bowl of rice, kimchi, salad, beef slices and a choice of iced coffee or nata de coco. The complete set costs the same as a plate of beef and had the same number of slices. We found out about this after ordering the a la carte beef. We did order more sets when we ran out of beef.

Their iced coffee tasted way better than Starbucks ice coffee.
This was one of the best preparation of clams I’ve ever eaten. I could have finished the whole plate by myself.

I’m obsessed with finding the best bibimbap or Korean mixed rice cooked on stone. I ordered bibimbap in all the Korean restaurants I’ve eaten at. And I can say this is the best! I can’t pinpoint exactly what made this different than the others but this was just the yummiest for me. Give it a try and tell me what you think.

Chijimi is similar to Korean pajon. This was quite good in it’s simplicity.

Andrew’s mom brought chocolate cake from Classic Confections.
I really liked the cake. It was deep, dark, rich chocolate, fudgy cake that wasn’t too sweet. It was the perfect ending to a perfect meal.
