Shaburi & Kintan Buffet: My All-You-Can Eat Yakiniku Dining Experience


Shaburi & Kintan Buffet opened its newest branch last June 25 at Japantown Top of the Glo in Glorietta. This restaurant have Japanese shabu shabu and yakiniku under one roof.  Diners can choose if they want the Japanese shabu shabu of Shaburi or the Japanese BBQ of Kintan. 

I was in the mood for some bbq so I opted for Kintan's buffet course. To order, you will first have to choose a course: Regular Buffet, Kintan Buffet, Premium Kintan Buffet, and Special Wagyu Buffet. The same course menu should be selected by all members of the group in the same table.

Kintan Rice

Next, you will have to choose your rice: Kintan rice or steamed rice. I had the Kintan rice. It's a steamed rice with special sauce, green onion, and strips of seaweed.

Choose your meat. The menu has a wide selection of good quality pork, beef, and chicken meat. For your first order, you are allowed to order two plates per person. To ensure the freshness of the meat, the raw meats are freshly-sliced upon customer's order. After your first order, there is no more limit to the number of meat plates you will order.

Since it's my first time to eat at Shaburi & Kintan buffet, the waiters were very helpful in suggesting the "must-try" and the perfect duration in cooking the meat.

One of the staff was kind enough to prepare a dipping sauce for me. It's a sweet sauce added with lots of garlic and red chili.

Foodie tip: Request for a cheese curry dipping sauce. It complements the chicken.

Aside from the eat-all-you can meat, there is also a buffet table where you can find fresh vegetables, pasta, appetizers, karaage, Japanese curry, sushi rolls, side dishes, and dessert.

Not to be skipped is the beef gyudon. It's tender and mildy sweet. Probably the best gyudon I've tasted.

The drink bar offers cucumber lemonade, iced tea, soda, Milo, and UCC coffee.

Make sure your tummy still has space for a matcha ice cream.

Diners have 90 minutes to enjoy the buffet. An additional P190 per 30 minutes extension per person will be charged if you exceeded the allotted time.

Honestly, 90 minutes is more than enough. I even had time to take photos for this article and yet I was to full already before my 90 minutes was over.
