Sariwon Korean Barbecue has been on my list of restaurants to visit since I first saw it with FM a few months ago. This was why I arrived pretty early for the dinner. Excited much?
I've only recently discovered Korean cuisine and I am falling in love with it which is why I had pretty high expectations. First thing that we had were the drinks.
I ordered this based on a blog entry I read about the place. It's called the Sangria Soju Php195 and if you are not a fan of ladies drinks, do not order this. It is made of a refreshing blend of apple, orange, and lemon slices mixed with red wine and soju. I'm more of a hard drinker so this ladies drink really tipped me over. To recover, I ordered this.
The banana apple shake was a heaven sent. It seems I can no longer hold my liquor (must be old age) and so I had to make do with the shake. However, I wasn't making do with the shake. This banana apple shake was the BOMB! It was so good I had to stop myself from finishing everything in one sip lest I barfed all over the place because of the liquor ingested.
After we were done taking photos, food finally came and when it came, it really conquered our appetites and our tummies.
The first thing we had was the Galbi. Priced at Php545, it is a juicy and tender marinated USDA choice beef short ribs grilled at the table. What makes it really different is the cutting technique used on the meat that ensures the perfect texture and flavor.
When cooked, you wrap it around a lettuce and put ginger paste on top and roll everything then take a huge bite. You'll be instantly sent to heaven. It is oh so good. The meat is soft and tasty and the paste brings out the taste of the marinade used. The green leafy lettuce balances everything out.
Next we had was the Haemul Pajeon. At php350, this 8 sliced traditional Korean pancake was a steal since it was made of squid, shrimp, oysters, and green onion. I tasted the shrimp and the green onion but not so much the squid and the oyster. Still, it was GOOD.
Now this, this was the winner of the night. Too bad I only had a measly portion of the Japchae because this was simply one of the best Japchae I have ever had. This colorful dish of Korean Vermicelli Noodles, mushrooms, green onions, carrots and other assorted vegetable was simply YUMMY. It was so yummy that I could have finished two bottles and at Php350, it would be perfectly worth it.
Lastly, we had the Sariwon Bulgogi. Php545 and you get the softest, thinnest, yummies bulgogi in town. The silky thin slices of USDA choice beef is what you pay for but what you get in return when you have a bite is HEAVEN served on a grill.
It was simply a wonderful dinner. I truly had fun and would definitely come back to Sariwon in the future.
