“Cafe Review: Tajimaya Charcoal Grill”

In my search for the best restaurant in Baguio, I asked Martina (my friend) on where does she eat good food here in Baguio. She shared me this Japanese restaurant called Tajimaya Charcoal Grill.


According to her, this is again a newly opened restaurant which is located in Military Cut Off, Baguio City just near the Sage Cafe.  But with the severe condition of traffic, it took us some minutes to decide whether to check it out or to try others because I was thinking as well that I am not fond of Japanese foods. Then after a few minutes, we finally decided to give it a try.

Well, I guess, Tajimaya is a place for many Manila residents, this maybe a place that they’d want to go and eat everyday.  But for us (some) Baguio locals, this is a bit new to us. Yes! Because Baguio is saturated by a Korean and a lot of simple restaurants (simple but well known) like Good taste, Sab-atan and others that’s why I wrote above that I’m not fond of Japanese food.



Tajimaya actually offer an unlimited serving of their pork, beef, chicken, lettuce and sausages. And of course with the sidings kimchi, and bean sprout at 499 Php. My first experience here was so good and we really did enjoy our meal. However, 499 per person for me is kinda bit expensive. I’m also confused because it’s Japanese overall but there are lots of Korean options as well.


Their serving was good. The requirement was to finish the first batch of food that they serve and then you can re-order whatever you wanted. And you can have as much of what you most prefer to grill. After grilling, the first batch, we ordered was the beef and others until we were full.

Their kimchi was also good and that made me wonder if Tajimaya is really a Korean or Japanese hehehe. Staffs were attentive. Ambiance is also perfect. Overall , this is a good place to dine with family and friends. But expect to smell like food when dining here.


Author’s Note:

♦ You can request for less fatty beef if you prefer.

♦ They have a time limit on their buffet (2 hours).

♦ Yes the price is a bit pricey but to experience a good quality of foods is very well worth it.

♦ Wifi available.

♦ Opening Hours (11:00AM – 11:00PM).

Thank you for reading!

Till then,
