Charcoal-grilled Wagyu at Yakiniku Ohji

Now that buffets are back in full force, we buffet lovers are back with a vengeance. If you’re looking for something value-for-money, Yakiniku Ohji has buffets priced from $24.80+, with a menu of over 70 free-flow items to choose from. 

This time we headed down for their $54.80+ A4 Wagyu buffet to fully indulge in some Japanese charcoal-grilled meats.

Food at Yakiniku Ohji

Paying under $100 for a Wagyu buffet is shocking, let alone just $54.80+ for the A4 cuts, free flow. While they aren’t as beautifully marbled as the A5-rated ones, the meats you get at Yakiniku Ohji still sport distinct and well-marbled fats that sizzle into juicy and tender chunks atop the charcoal grill.

Options are aplenty here, with pork, chicken, and even cooked sides or mains to choose from. For Wagyu, there’s the kalbi, AKA. short rib, sirloin, beef tongue, inner kalbi, lean meat, marinated beef, and harami skirt

The sirloin cuts came up on top with their good ratio of fats to meat. The best thing about grilling them yourself is that you get to cook them a tad bit more so that some bits are crisp up at the edges too.

If you don’t mind the fattiness, definitely go for the kalbi strips. With more fats than meat, they were the juiciest cut by far. Every bite was buttery, but without the presence of butter.

For some Taiwanese night market vibes, order the inner kalbi that comes in the form of fatty cubes. Ask for some pepper and brush on some soya sauce, and you’ve got yourself a new flavour experience at the buffet joint.

Not only does the Wagyu buffet cover a variety of marinated and non-marinated pork and chicken, there’s also free-flow salmon sashimi, aburi salmon sashimi, and teriyaki salmon. The salmon slices are served thick, giving the buffet even more bang for the buck.

If you’re one to have carbs alongside your meats, order a hearty Original Curry Rice, soul-warming Tonkotsu Ramen with Egg, or sweet-salty Yakiniku Oh Fried Rice. The fried rice even has soft stewed beef tendon stir-fried into the mix. 

Other Japanese sides include sauce-drenched takoyaki, kakiage (fried vegetable tempura), and fried croquettes. Gym bros would be happy to know there are also plenty of protein options such as cold tofu and ramen eggs to pile up on too.

Ambience at Yakiniku Ohji

The restaurant is so well air-conditioned that we didn’t end up perspiring despite the heat from the charcoal grill. That being said, be prepared to leave smelling like you’ve eaten your worth at an affordable Wagyu yakiniku spot. Do take note that the space located on the first floor of 321 Clementi Mall holds only 10 groups at a time, so make a reservation to secure a spot before heading down.

The verdict

Yakiniku Ohji has always been known for its value-for-money Japanese fare. This time, they have really won me over with their new Wagyu buffet. The prices are reasonable and the meats are on-point with the generous amount of marbling and tender cuts.
