Weekend Food Tripping at: Sol Korean Restaurant

Happy Sunday everyone :) It was a great Saturday for me and I'm looking forward for a full day rest today to be charged for the coming week! Its going to be hectic for sure!

We went out for another new Korean Restaurant to try! Sol Korean Restaurant is located at Roxas Boulevard near PNB Building. There's a whole strip of restaurants and you can take your pick! :)

Why did I choose this restaurant??? Unlimited serving for appetizers!!! Everytime I dine at Korean restaurants, I always wanted more of their appetizer but of course, they only serve it once! Not this restaurant. You can eat to your heart's content!

Here are the unlimited Korean appetizer!
They told us that they change their appetizers daily
Too bad the egg and tofu wasn't available

Egg is my hubby's fave

and Tofu is mine!

Chicken Bulgogi

Beef Bulgogi

A Korean version of
Fish Tonkatsu

Korean version of
Pork Tonkatsu

My ultimate favorite!

We also ordered
Sundubu Chigae (tofu stew)!
But forgot to take a shot of it!
It's a wonderful Korean soup
tofu, egg, squid, etc...
It's spicy but I love it!

Here's their Menu
(click to enlarge)

The dishes are mostly in Korean
so you have to ask the waiter
details about the dish

(pictures ain't helpful here)

2 Story restaurant
The place is cozy

A lot of Koreans eating there

I love their "wall of photos"
Just proves a lot of people
to dine in their restaurant!


Sol Korean Restaurant does not accept credit card, everything is on Cash Basis so make sure to take some cash if you dine here :)


I also received my order of the MAC Shadestick from Mona, I'm glad she sold her shadesticks as I called in MAC and I was told they don't sold it down here anymore. Thanks Mona for the smooth transaction! :D

  2. Wah! look at all those yummy food. Making me hungry now.

  3. OMG!! It's Saturday night in the UK still and we just had dinner. I was showing Jamal our new Japanese Bulldog Sauce that is made for Tonkatsu--and you post this!!

    Thank you for posting these pics!! I had stir fried Tofu with spring greens and plain rice tonight...your food looks so much better!!

  4. The beef dish looks really appealing ;D...
    Do you like the MAC shadesticks :o? The Sugarsweet ones look lovely but I prefer to work with powders, I'm not too good with using sticks :(.

  5. I like saying bibimbop over and over again hahaha It's so fun!
    wow food looks delish!

  6. YUM! Can you believe I've never tried Korean food, ever? I am THAT unadventurous when it comes to food :(

    But you review makes me wanna troop over to Roxas Blvd. I haven't been there in ages! :)

  7. The food looks yummy! I've just had dinner but you're making me hungry again!

  8. nice food!! i love Korean appetizers ^^ especially the cucumber kimchi~~ :p

  9. yummy as always!! I love Korean food and I absolutely looove sundubu chigae. I get that every time I go to a Korean restaurant! :)

  10. those food looks very deliciou!! i wish i can have delicious food everyday of my life!!!


  11. lol
    i didn't know you were so into the side dishes~

    technically you CAN ask for more if you are out of it...

    but it can be looked down upon cause people think its their right to get more. okay maybe not right...but they demand more, and more, and more, and never tip or they get the cheapest thing on the menus and fill up on the side dishes.

    anyway its like that here at least, I would assume, being korean, that it would be the same :)

    anyway looks good :) slightly drooling while writing this... :P

  12. Yummy yummy!
    Looks very very yum!
    I like Beef Bulgogi too! And your Bibimbop looks yum too! Is it not spicy?

  13. wow! that's too much food...and dont tell me it's just u and your hubby? hehehe

    Vanessa M , are you into Korean dishes?

    Rasilla, actually I am really into side dishes, and yeah you can ask more but its embarrassing, in this resto, the waiter just kept on refilling your side dishes everytime they see them all gone, so it's less embarrassing lol And yeah, I just ask for what i really love! I know what you mean about wanting to get more side dishes and order the cheapest meal..some people DO that..

  18. Anastacia, yum!!! It's spicy! But I love spicy food!

    Debi, No, its me my hubby and parents :)

  19. I LOVE, LOVE, love Korean food. We eat Korean here in Phoenix at least twice a month. My little boy loves the bulgogi and the spare ribs being barbecued in front of us. :) I can also eat kimchi everyday. One day though I ate too much of it and developed hyperacidity. lol
