The Top 8 Korean Restaurants
By Naveen Ganglani
You can never go wrong with Korean food.
Sure, the options on the menu don’t go as deep as Japanese or other cuisines, but even if what you order may be similar each time you visit a Korean establishment, it’s going to do the trick and leave you with a satisfied stomach.
Makati is home to many great restaurants, so it should come as no surprise that you’ll have a ton of options to pick from if you’re craving the Korean cuisine.
Here are our top 8:
8. Matgalne Korean Restaurant
4768 Kalayaan Avenue, Makati
If you’re seeking somewhere not too pricy but can still do the trick, Matgalne is the place to be. You get a buffet that involves unlimited beef and pork for below 400 pesos, which is more than good enough value for a low-key place to eat after a hard day of work.
The quality isn’t the best when compared to other elite establishments, but you won’t be complaining much at the end of your meal. The place is cozy enough as well to enjoy fun conversations with friends.
5650 Don Pedro, Makati
Open 24 hours, Jumong is frequented by many of Poblacion’s visitors for pre or post drinking sessions. Fairly priced with many options on the menu, the establishment often gets many visitors despite not having the prettiest interiors. Your bill won’t come out too expensive but the food will be good enough to satisfy a K-BBQ craving. Make sure to order the pajeon. It’s to die for.
6. Bulgogi Brothers
Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati
Considered one of those “sure ball” Korean restaurants. Although Bulgogi Brothers specializes in their K-BBQ, it’s no secret that the other items they have to offer make the establishment a place you can return to repeatedly. The vibe is always family-friendly and the service is top-notch.
5. Kiss The Tiramisu
GF Three Central, Valero, Salcedo, Makati
The famous dessert café in Korea made its way to the Philippines late last year and has already attracted a ton of happy customers. Taking the popular cake flavor and turning it into different ice cream options, you’ll immediately notice the great quality of the ingredients they used after your first bite. To top it all off, the presentation is pretty incredible as well and will surely improve your IG feed.
