first is i finally found the courage to go inside a korean restaurant. i've been a tiny bit afraid because koreans here don't really mingle with us filipinos.. of course it turned out i was worried about nothing. most korean business owners i've encountered are really friendly and even talk to me in their broken tagalog. (i guess that's good business acumen hehe) the first korean restaurant we went to is the one nearest to us, ICHEON restaurant located in Sumulong Highway, here in Antipolo.
In total, i've been there 3 times already! the first time, i was with the boys and 2 of my HS friends...it's better to go there with a big group.. so you can try more dishes! the price and serving sizes are really meant for sharing. 2nd time, i was just with raymond and the kids.. we already knew what to order. 3rd time, i was with my Dad, who happily enjoyed it! (though he didn't admit it haha. My dad is not really adventurous when it comes to eating) ICHEON restaurant in Sumulong, Antipolo
These are accumulated photos from my 3 visits in the restaurant:
Some grilled meat.. think this was samgyupsal (pork belly) and.. a beef one, forgot which.
finished product. you wrapped them in some lettuce leaves and put some hot pepper paste.
the side dishes and bibimbap; looove the side dishes, bibimbap was okay
bulgogi.. this one tasted great
kalbi jim (beef short ribs) my favorite korean dish.
first time i went there.. we ordered a lot!
