Late Lunch at Sariwon

Its been a couple of years since we last ate at Sariwon in Promenade so we're all excited to dine there again. Hubby and daughter are craving for a Korean meal and we happen to go to Greenhills and remembered Sariwon.


Read more about our first dining experience at --- Sariwon.


Banchan comes free in every Korean restaurant. Sariwon serves unlimited Banchan and it includes: lettuce salad with sesame oil vinaigrette, mashed squash, broiled kang-kang, kimchi, sweet-salty peanuts with dilis, potato cubes, and spicy sayote strips. Banchans are basically side dishes and every Korean restaurants have their own different set of Banchans.


Dwaeji Galbi, P380. These are grilled pork loins. Very tender and flavorful. Serving size is good for sharing. You may just have to ask them to cut the meat in smaller pieces or bite size pieces upon serving or you can just request scissors so that you can cut it yourself.


Ojingeo-Bokkeum, P380.  Hubby prefers seafood over meat so I got this spicy squid for him. I love how the sesame oil balances the flavor of the chili paste. The squid is also perfectly cooked (meaning it is tender).


Seolleongtang, P320. I always order bone soup whenever we dine at a Korean restaurant. Rich soup with some bones and meat with glass noodles. You can add some chili paste to make it a bit spicy. Really, really good! Must try at Sariwon.


Mandu or Mandoo, P195. Ordered Mandoo as an afterthought because the promised unlimited Banchan took ages to arrive at our table (we just requested for additional mashed squash and peanuts and we have to remind them 3-4x). These are filled with kimchi and not meat, and 3 pieces are fried and 3 pieces are steamed. The fried ones tastes better than the steamed ones because the skin tends to harden when it is steamed and then you forgot to eat it at once. Note to self: don't order this again.

Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.


Max's Beef Salpicao and Adobo Ribs

Max's, one of the country's beloved restaurant doesn't just serve that "sarap" to the bones fried chicken but has a whole range of yummy Pinoy favorites on the menu such as kare-kare, sinigang na hipon, sizzling tofu, and others.
