Hello! I’m back with my samgyup escapade and it’s already making me think that readers are getting sick of it. 😀
This time, we visited a Korean BBQ house located near my place – somewhere in Makati to be exact. 😊
Samgyupsalamat Makati Cinema Square branch has been there for like two years or so, and it was only last March 1, Sunday, that I was able to visit. I remember trying Samgyupsalamat Vito Cruz branch, the one beside the fried chicken house but I think they already moved to a new place. I can’t really remember “the” experience, except for the fact that they use coal in cooking. 😊
So! I went there with my friend, to the Makati Cinema Square branch at around 3 in the afternoon. It was a full house, given it’s a weekend and yes, payday. We had our names listed and it didn’t really take long before we could settle in. We were welcomed by EXO by the way performing Love Shot, having that big TV screen mounted to the wall playing HD music videos of your favorite K-POP groups is a PLUS PLUS PLUS!
Like other bbq houses, this one also offers an unlimited dining where you get unlimited side dishes and meat! I was really craving for samgyupsal I insisted we meet that day and eat out. 😀
Being the samgyupsal enthusiast I am, I decided to go for seasoned meat first, not the marinated ones because they have the tendency to make me feel full. Remember? The tastier the meat you consume, the more water you would want to consume in between to wash off the flavors? 😀
We were served with A LOT of side dishes before they filled the table with the coal and grill. I was surprised to see the amount of side dishes, and, to see the side dishes themselves. At other Korean bbq houses, they don’t usually offer japchae and egg as part of it but here… TADA! What you see in the photo is what you get, oh, except for the rice. You have to order from the friendly staffs. 😉
I was the official cook, as always, because I formed the habit of cooking. I love cooking. ♥
I know that some marinades all taste the same, but somehow, eating here made me feel really ecstatic; especially when I ordered Bul-jib, the thick cut pork meat, literally the samgyupsal I’ve known. I even borrowed scissors because I wanted to cut them even if they were already tender after grilling.
Their marinades were so excellent we had to order another serving of their yangnyum and gochujang. Oops, not just “another,” but MORE. ♥
I can’t remember how many servings we were able to consume but I know it was a lot. The staffs were approachable too, the serving time wasn’t long, they serve you what you order real-time, the music coming from the big TV screen was a PLUS… It’s just the grill and meat MAY get burned easily since coal is being used to cook them? 😊
I really didn’t expect to fall in love with Samgyupsalamat, but now that I have, I will definitely be coming back. ♥
