They made use of charcoal for the grill which was very good as charcoal brings out the flavor of the meat over its electric counterpart. The only thing that made cooking a challenge was that the fire was just too strong that they had to repeatedly throw in some ice cubes to tame it down.
I love shrimps but grilled shrimps make the shell stick that it's quite impossible to enjoy. I tried a few pieces and eventually gave up as I'd rather munch on the bacon and fish balls which I just have to pop into my mouth any totally avoid the struggle with my utensils.
Will I still go back to Tajimaya? Definitely! This time though I'm sitting outside and will load up on more fishballs and beef too!
p.s. Tajimaya recently opened a new branch at One Rockwell in Makati. I was also told that their first branch was actually in Cebu! Here's one good example of a provincial outlet that became successful here in Manila. Hooray!!!
