Yakimix Sushi and Smokeless Grill Restaurant at Veranza Mall

I’ve always been an unabashed HEAVY buffet eater. I can eat from a good spread for hoursss. Recently, I had a fantasticly yummy buffet experience at Yakimix Sushi and Smokeless Grill Restaurant at Veranza Mall in General Santos City. I even broke my strict personal rule of not being late to appointments just so I could enjoy the buffet longer. And if I didn’t have that abovementioned appointment, I could have eaten for an even longer period of time. Why wouldn’t I? There was a spread of Asian food that I could eat, eat, eat.

Grilled Seafood Platter

I had the pleasure of dining at one of Mindanao’s dining gems, Panagatan Seafoods Restaurant in Opol, Misamis Oriental during a roadtrip to Iligan City from Cagayan de Oro City. When I was told we’d be eating at a restaurant along the way, I had expected a small quaint restaurant with a few dishes on the menu to served to weary travelers. I certainly did not expect a humongous seaside restaurant that served a selection of fresh seafoods which can be cooked according to the diners’ preference. I was in heaven.
