Korean Restaurants Around the Metro


Watching K-Dramas every night made me crave for kimchi, ramyeun, bibimbap, and even for Korean ketchup gochujang! I am even curious for their black bean noodle dish, now where to find that here in the PH? 😃

Anyway, sharing some of my random Korean food trips around Metro Manila! 🍲


Soga Miga

I always see this place whenever we park or eat in Molito, but I thought it looks intimidating from the outside. We finally tried Soga Miga last January 20 for my birthday dinner, and found out that this resto serves legit Korean dishes with a very Korean interiors and ambiance! Even their metal chopsticks and cup and plastic water container remind me a lot of my Seoul trips. Add to that, most of their diners are Koreans! Parang nasa Korea na talaga ako!

Dad said the beef that they ordered here is the best!

Ice Flower

Craving for Korean dessert? Another Molito discovery is the best bingsu place for me and my sisters: Ice Flower Snow Falling Korean Dessert Cafe (Whew, ang haba! 😂). They even have a play and photography area with fake snow! ❆

Chef's Noodle Korean Bistro

After visiting my friend's wedding dress maker in Banawe, we south girls decided to try the food fuss in the area while we were there! Buti nalang all three of us were craving for Korean food, so we stopped over the first K-restaurant we saw. Chef's Noodle has really nice interiors, and my food is actually good. Just one downside from this experience: Wala silang KIMCHI that time, which is a no-no in any Korean restaurant!

Bulgogi Brothers

If you want accessible Korean food, my go-to is Bulgogi Brothers as they have lots of branches in my usual malls. Also learned that Bulgogi Brothers really originated in Seoul. They even serve free Korean tea to all diners, and lots of free, refillable, yummy side dishes! Sold na sold ako, hehe!

Santorini

One of the first Korean restaurants that I tried was around UST. These were photos from my old camera, thus the pixelated quality, haha! I can't remember how the food was, but I was amused by the whole restaurant feel: K-Pop overload! They were even showing music videos from Korean girl groups and boy bands, making the whole experience very memorable (and this happened more than 5 years ago already!). I think I also had my first Melona and fish-shaped ice cream here!

Jang Ga Rae Korean Restaurant

One of the advantages of having an ate who loves to discover different restaurants is having to try something new for every birthday in the fam! During mom's birthday last year, we went to south's popular food trip district in BF Homes Paranaque to try Jang Ga Rae. Like Soga Miga, the place will make you feel like you're really in Seoul for a vacation!
