Weekend Food Tripping at: Korean Village

My favorite Korean Restaurant of all time is located at Ermita, Manila.  Korean Village.  I've celebrated birthdays and "just because" days in this restaurant.  They actually moved to a different location which is a bit farther than the old address so I haven't dined in this restaurant for the longest time.  I have to set a special date to really take time and visit this place who serves one of the best Korean dishes I've tried.  (My opinion).

The new location is more spacious by the way and they divide the place into smoking and non-smoking.  Well ventilated and air-conditioned. 

Boy am I glad they serve cold tea now for free!  Imagine drinking hot tea while munching on spicy food?  My tongue won't like that!

The appetizers served for free!  My favorite goes to Kimchi, Anchovy and BeanSprouts.

Pork Bulgogi

Cooking Pork Bulgogi
You can order lettuce for less than Php150.00 (approx $3.00) 
and you get the freshest lettuce servings to wrap the Pork Bulgogi with!

My favorite Bibimbop
I like the fact that their red paste is served on ketchup tube
You have control on how much red paste you want to use!

Chicken with Mushroom Dish
Eat now, allergies later!  I bend the rules when it comes to yummy dishes
There's always anti-histamine anyways :D

Free dessert
Healthy Fresh Pineapples

Korean Village
1738 M. Adriatico St.,
Malate, Manila

The restaurant is always packed.  Parking is available in front of the restaurant plus there is a nearby parking space for customers as well.  The restaurant has good servers and they've been there forever so they know the dishes by heart!  Great customer service, wonderful ambiance, price of the food?  Very inexpensive!  

Everything above costs less than Php500.00 (not more than $12.00).  No service charge included so please give them the tip the deserve!

Have a wonderful weekend food tripping!
Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
