You might have heard it before - samgyeopsal (삼겹살) or grilled pork belly is getting more famous nowadays. Pasig is just one of the luckiest cities in Metro Manila to have a Korean restaurant like this.
The Korean fever has for quite some time been in the Philippines. Koreans are presently not only wherever in the nation - especially in Boracay, Puerto Galera and Baguio City. They are likewise quick being overshadowed by their own way of life. In a peaceful town at the fringe of Pateros and Pasig City between Brgy. San Joaquin, 1223 Grill is verification that Korean cuisine is already accepted in the local neighborhood scene.
But what is the difference of this Korean restaurant to others?
So me and my friends, went to this Korean food place and see what it can offer to us.
WHAT WE TRIED👍 Budae Jjigae (army stew)
👍 Tteokbokki (spicy rice cake)
👍 Saeng seon jeon (pan fried fish)
👍 Spicy chicken and pork with cheese
Budae Jjigae (army stew)
It was my first time to try this Korean stew. It was prepared uncooked to us. So before you can enjoy it, we have to heat it using the provided stove to us.
The stew is noodle-based seasoned with some vegetables and processed food such as spam and hotdogs. It is perfect when it's hot.
The bowl is good for sharing for 3-4 persons (maybe 5, depending on how much you can eat). :D

Here's a short description of this famous Korean cuisine:
The literal meaning of the Korean word samgyeop-sal (삼겹살) is "three layer flesh", referring to striations of lean meat and fat in the pork belly cut appearing to be three layers.
In Korea, the word samgyeop-sal meaning "pork belly" often refers to samgyeop-sal-gui (grilled pork belly), in the same way that the word galbi meaning "ribs" often refers to galbi-gui (grilled beef ribs). Gui refers to roasted, baked, or grilled dishes.
One can also find ogyeopsal, with o meaning "five". Ogyeop-sal includes the skin of the pork belly, unlike samgyeop-sal where the skin is removed. This corresponds with Chinese word for pork belly, wǔ huā ròu (五花肉) or "five flower meat", as the Chinese pork belly usually includes the skin part.
What I really love about this food is, you decide how you grill the meat, what to put in it, how many of which side dish you'd like to eat - it's a complete customize eating!
