Second time to dine at Sambokojin for Valentine’s and things just keep on getting better and better!
Oh chapchae, how I missed you.
Anyway, let me just rave (again) on how awesome Sambokojin (and their staff) is. Here are the reasons why:
- The wait staff are “stealthy” when it comes to refilling drinks. I just took a sip and after a split second, the glass was full again. It’s amazing. I haven’t tried dining in the EDSA branch though, but I sure hope the same applies.
- They are even stealthier when it comes to clearing used plates. I just set aside my empty plate and after a while, it magically disappears! They are the fastest among all buffets I have tried. Makes dining more fun and clean.
- They go the extra mile. I was just talking to my grandma who was busy getting some chapchae when one of the staff bent down to get me a plate. When I was getting some chili paste and both my hands were full, another staffer offered to bring that small saucer to my table. In other places, I need to ask the staff to do that. Or worse, nobody would bother.
Sambokojin has a super team plus meats and cooked dishes that are more flavorful and delish than similar buffets in the metro. All that said, Sambokojin gets A for effort in my book. They just need to add something to keep guests entertained at the waiting area. I wish they’d come up with a loyalty/discount card for super fans like me! XD
Btw, since I am slowly enjoying Korean cuisine and I like lettuce, I ate lots and lots of samgyupsal while I was there.
If there’s one thing I really love about buffets, it’s that I get to try other cuisines without shelling out money on something my tastebuds are unfamiliar with. I learned to eat and enjoy sushi, sashimi and kimchi all because it’s there on the buffet spread. ♥
