Yakumi at Solaire Resort and Casino Revamps Your Favorite Weekend Buffets
Your favorite weekend buffet at Yakumi inside Solaire Resort and Casino is embracing the Kaizen factor—a Japanese business philosophy of continuously improving—by revamping its menu line up and adding more interactive live stations.
Yakumi’s weekend offers are getting fresh tastes with the new Saturday All-You-Can-Eat buffet and Sunday Brunch
Solaire Resort & Casino’s Yakumi weekend offers are getting fresh tastes as their new Saturday All-You-Can-Eat buffet and Sunday Brunch are getting refreshed with more list of Japanese delicacies.
Inside, you’ll also find a private room dedicated to tempura, and chawanmushi, a Japanese steamed egg dish with savory ingredients that resemble flan or pannacotta.
Around, you’ll probably see Japanese chefs assemble sushis at another station. If you’re too excited and eager to sit and eat, there’s a roving sashimi trolley that will keep your plate occupied as a chef precisely slices your serving fresh from a whole tuna.

Aside from the sushi section, you’ll also discover the art of Robatayaki, where they grill skewers of various vegetables, as well as meats ranging from chicken parts to USDA beef portions, squid to Blue Marlin chunks coated in teriyaki sauce.
Meats ranging from chicken parts to USDA beef portions are also freshly chopped at the Robotayaki station
Although kaizen means improvement, some stations don’t require any necessary touch-ups like the broths and noodles station of Shoyu, Miso, Tonkotsu, and Tantanmen ramens with a choice between Soba, Udon, or Somen noodles.

On the other hand, when we say improvement, it doesn’t necessarily mean revising everything.
Yakumi’s extensive list of desserts adds another popular staple dessert on the list—Mochi. It’s a Japanese rice cake that’s often filled with sweet red bean paste with three unexpected variants: green tea, apple, and peach.
These mochis will now be part of the three-station spread of fresh fruits, delectable confectionaries, frozen treats, and cream-based desserts.

There are also new sake cocktails that will refresh the palate mid-meal or when the chopsticks are finally down.
They have Fukumi Navel—a Honey Umeshu-based drink that’s sweet and zingy at the same time. Saturday Fizz, on the other hand, just like what its name suggests is a refreshing fizzy drink that will make you second guess whether your taste buds are giving you sweet or sour.
Unlimited servings of some of your favorites are still available during Saturdays with a new All-You-Can-Eat Buffet. Yakumi will offer a tick-box menu of featured Nihon dishes and Set Menu Upgrade options that can be ordered as additions for a more filling visit.
Gracing the buffet area are the master chefs that showcase their experience and expertise in the Japanese cuisine.
