Korean grill gets more and more popular in the Philippines these days. But what makes a Korean restaurant different to others? Let me show you what Romantic Baboy has!

Opened in January 2018, they are already making noise in the metro. Curiously, we came and visit to try their best-seller "Cheesy Samgyeopsal".

How Romantic Baboy is different from other Korean restaurants?

Many other korean restaurant has their name with korean meaning which filipino are not really familiar and hard to pronounce and memorize and so many korean barbeque is opening without any professionalism. So they adopt the authentic new modern style of korean BBQ and come up with their own style of cut and recipe. The restaurant is where family and friends binds together and eat. They really tried to focused how will we make their dine memorable. So they come up with funny and catchy name with our mascot where the families and friends can take a pictures to have their memory forever.

What I love with this meat is its super thin slice. I love the marinate. The meat is tasty and just a bit spicy, perfect for those who like spicy food. Best of all, you can dip it in the melted cheese! Grr!

This one is rolled sliced pork. Although it looks thick, it is still soft and easy to bite - just the way I wanted to eat them.

I also love the idea of having a Japchae (chapchae) as their side dish. Of course, the experience will not be complete without kimchi!

Romantic Baboy is easy to find if you are thinking of their location. It is just near the rotunda of Boy Scout Circle And Monument in Diliman, Quezon City. Just a few steps away, you view the restaurant afar along Tomas Morato Avenue.

Although they have plenty of tables and seats, they can only accommodate at least more or less 50 heads at the same time. Their queue for new comers are very high. I suggest that you come at least 1 to 2 hours ahead of time to reserve a seat.

However, since they have enough staff to cater their customer, the serving of food is still fast. The place is fully airconditioned and like other Korean restaurant, they also have exhaust in each table.
