Yummy buffet experience at Sambo Kojin SM Fairview

For months, I’ve been drooling over Sambo Kojin’s Instagram post everyday. Living up North, there are a few buffet restaurants in the three malls situated in our area.


Last month, they opened their sixth branch located at SM City Fairview’s Annex 2. I was supposed to visit during their opening day last August 24, but my trip to Cebu was scheduled the following day. My Southies friends always teased me that I should try Sambo Kojin if I visit our client, SM Southmall. Good thing there’s one in SM Fairview.

Just this morning, I was delighted to be one of the food bloggers to try authentic Japanese yakiniku and Korean cuisine at Sambo Kojin. Upon entering the spacious buffet restaurant, I was stunned over their yummy pastries, fresh fruits, and desserts to crave on.

I love Japanese and Korean food! When I was about to check out what makes Sambo Kojin as haven of foodies here in our area, I can’t get enough of sushi bar favorites, katsu, okonomiyaki and takoyaki (my favorite!). Don’t forget to try their bibimbap, chapchae, and pajeon!

After hours of eating some of the food offerings at Sambo Kojin: Food coma is real! I love how they served the best Japanese and Korean cuisine in a buffet.

Meanwhile, if you’re going to celebrate your birthday soon, they have Sambo Kojin Free Birthday Buffet promo.

Here’s the mechanics: The birthday celebrant gets a free buffet when he/she dines in any of the participating branches with one full paying adult on their actual birthday, three days before and three days after their birthday.
