I feel like everything Korean has literally taken over my life now. Aside from living in a part of QC where there are more Korean establishments than convenience stores, I also find myself getting hooked with K-dramas (Hello, Nam JooHyuk!!) and Korean variety shows (i.e. 2 Days, 1 Night). I haven't been to Korea aside from the airport lol, but I think we got the best of Korea right here in Manila! One gastronomic contribution this culture has shared to us is their Korean Barbecue. I've honestly tried numerous K-BBQ places here in Manila - from small legit ones, to commercialized ones. But there's this one Korean resto in BGC that is definitely incomparable as regards quality and service and that is, Sariwon.
The name "Sariwon" was derived from small town in North Korea where Mrs. Bum Im Koo mastered a recipe for Korean Beef Bulgogi. Seventy years after Mrs. Bum Im Koo opened her first restaurant, Sariwon is now hailed as one of the best restaurants in South Korea. Recently, it opened its doors here in Manila, particularly in Bonifacio High Street in Taguig and Promenade in Greenhills.
