Matsuri Japanese BBQ Yakiniku by Tito Chef

Those in the BF area would probably be familar with Tito Chef, a restaurant in Presidents Ave. Sucat, Parañaque. Last year, we noticed some construction going on right beside it and I immediately guessed that it would probably be some expansion to the restaurant. And my prediction was right since it was Matsuri by Tito Chef that emerged. 

Hubby and I were so excited to try it out a few months ago but then we were told that they weren't officially opened yet (despite the restaurant being fully built with the lights on and everything when we would pass by, just like you see in the pic below) because there were still some problems with the exhaust system or something. So we had to wait a few more months (we honestly thought they weren't going to open anymore)...

And then last month they finally, really opened! So hubby and I trooped there with the kids for dinner a few days ago.


They have an area with low tables and of course the kids wanted to sit there. They were excited when they saw there was a TV, but they were only showing Japanese channels. They also didn't have wi-fi yet as of the time we visited.

Here's their menu:

We decided to get the YAKINIKU CHOICE SET good for 2, served with rice, soup, and side salad dessert (P980).

side dishes

We also got Yakitori Pork (P180) from the appetizers.

Here's the meat from the Yakiniku Choice Set: Original + Karubi + Harami + Tori + Ton Toro

You had to grill the meat yourself, not like in other places where the servers do it for you.

The kids had fun "cooking" but I was paranoid they might burn themselves!

Anyway, I don't know if we were cooking wrong, but the flames was really big. A waiter came by and asked us not to put the meat in the middle so it won't get burned daw hehe. And there was a LOT of smoke (maybe they still have to fix their exhaust?). But after a while it was all good. :)

The meat was really yummy and tender. You can put sauce, but it was tasty for me even without. I think hubby and I should have gotten the one good for 3. Medyo bitin pa for us haha! ;p

After, they gave these wet towels which were small at first but then grew in size after absorbing the water in the bowl. The kids were really amused by it. :)

Only complaint I have was that their cup of rice was really small. But that's just maybe because I'm a rice lover. We ended up ordering 1 more cup and still felt it was bitin haha. And ang mahal ng plain rice ha - P70! But we enjoyed our dining experience and will definitely be back. :)
