Samjung Grill Restaurant

Watching too much Sageuks is bad for the health. My hubby has been craving for Korean dishes ever since he watched his first Korean series- hahaha. Actually, we used to have a favorite Korean carinderia somewhere in Malate but it already closed so we need to find a replacement. We did find one but it's in Baguio City so we can't dine there when we want to. Luckily, we found a perfect Korean restaurant in Burgos area in Makati City.



It was an accidental discovery, hubby and I were just going around the streets of Burgos area in Makati when we chanced upon Samjung Grill Restaurant. It's a few steps away from Alchemy.

I guess we really haven't eaten at a Korean restaurant for a long time because I forgot that they serve ban chans, and I was like-- "I didn't order that." 

So here's what we ate-- we started with beef ribs soup which was hubby's favorite. The serving portion is good for sharing and comes with a cup of rice. The meat was tender and the soup was flavorful. There are bits of beansprouts and some glass noodles and egg mixed in with the soup. Quite filling and perfect for rainy nights. Weather was hot though when we dine there but got seated near the AC!


Kimchi Fried Rice. I was a bit hesitant to order this because it might be too spicy but its not. Very tasty that even if I told hubby I might not be able to eat all of it... Well, you can just guess what happene. Serving portion is good for sharing. Samjung serves great tasting kimchi by the way. I'm just not sure if you can buy from them. 


Grill Squid. It just took a while for this dish to be served because they grill it only when there's an order. Spicy but I lived! Hahaha. Just make sure to remove the chili bits, otherwise it might stick to your throat and leave you coughing. Extra rice please! 


I was thinking of having dessert but we're quite full. There are many other interesting dishes on the menu although I forgot to take pics. Reason to go back. 😉

Bo-Bangkok!

Going to Bangkok is not complete if you haven't tried their famous Thai Milk Tea which are sold on the streets for 20 baht. It's not really hard to find a milk tea seller because there always seem to be one nearby.
