Primera Restobar | Unli Yakiniku, pizza, pasta, wings & more for only 299 Php

Yakiniku, what’s that? Yes, Yakiniku may not be as popular as Samgyeopsal as the latter went along with the KPop and KDrama trend. But not many people do know that Yakiniku (Japanese) is just as enjoyable as Samgyeopsal (Korean) when it comes to the joy of grilling the meat right in front of you while sniffing its mouthwatering aroma.

I’m so thankful we found a restaurant that serves eat-all-you-can Yakiniku. Primera Restobar gave us the experience of eating grilled meat, Japanese style! They even partnered it with pizza, pasta, and wings that you can also eat to your heart’s content!

Let the grilling begin!
Wings, Tofu, Burger, Shrimp Tempura, Carbonara, Maki, Spaghetti

Awesome part is that you can eat these dishes while waiting for the meat to get cooked! My most favorite is the Tempura as the shrimps were huge and the batter was flavorful but not too salty! I also liked the creaminess of Carbonara, I liked it even more when I paired it with wings! The spaghetti was Italian so it’s a bit sour. The pizza wasn’t photographed as it came late and we forgot to take pictures when it came!

Update: Burger is not included anymore in their current menu

Unli Set of Pork, Beef, & Shrimp Yakiniku. We added lettuce because some of us wanted samgyeopsal.

But how do we eat Yakiniku and how does it differ from Samgyeopsal? Here it is.

How to eat Yakiniku

  1. Dip the meat in the desired marinating sauce. Available sauces are Yakiniku, Teriyaki, Spicy, and Soy Garlic.
  2. Grill the meat for 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. You may dip the meat again then eat it with rice and side dishes.

It’s just like Samgyeopsal except that the meats are not pre-marinated and are eaten with rice instead of lettuce.

In Samgyeopsal, meats are wrapped in lettuce leaves together with kimchi, garlic clove, soybean paste, etc. and then eaten like a burrito. While in Yakiniku, grilled meats are first dipped into various dipping sauces and then eaten using chopsticks.

Shrimp Tempura. This is so yummy!
Marbled Potatoes. This is my fave among the side dishes!
Teriyaki Wings. A little spicy!

Service

What can I say, almost everything was ready upon arriving at the restaurant. And it took only less than 10 minutes to complete the set! The crew were prompt in refilling the dishes. They are also attentive to our requests like for example we wanted to add lettuce or we requested for extra plates.

Ambiance

The restaurant is located inside a food park (Kamuning Food Trip) so we need to expect limited space. There’s no air-conditioning inside the food park but it’s fine since they are only open during evening. There are no exhaust tubes for the grillers due to food park restrictions.

Primera Restobar used to offer live band and comedy shows in their previous location (they transferred from Congressional to Kamuning) but they currently cannot host such events anymore due to food park restrictions, even Karaoke is not allowed.

Location

Situated just along the main road (Kamuning), the restaurant is easy to locate. Just search for Kamuning Food Trip and you’ll instantly see the restaurant inside.

Address: #48 Kamuning Road, Quezon City (Waze/Grab/Uber: Kamuning Food Trip)
