I finally had time to go visit Smopers at BGC yesterday and since they were gracious enough to send almost 1k worth of GC's to be used, I dragged along my best friend to go eat with me.
Smopers is located near the 2nd bus stop of BGC so its not hard to find. It's right beside Seattles Best Coffee in 26th and 4th street. The sign is pretty big so if you are on the lookout, you'd most likely see it.
The insides are pretty basic. There were no fancy lamps or chairs. Everything was on the minimalist side of things. Since it was around 2pm, there wasn't the usual lunch crowd so Allan and I took a seat at one of the couches. After 5 minutes of not being attended to, we realized it was a self service kind of place and we had to order at the counter.
Allan and I ended up trying almost everything on their menu but what stood out for me were the following:
The kimbap sells for Php150 but it contains 10pcs. It looks like a california maki but this doesn't come with a soy sauce and its maintained at room temperature. At first I was wary but upon one bite, I found that I actually really liked it. It was tasty an crunchy and the mix of the meat, carrots, and relish were really good. I believe I actually finished half of it. Eeeekkk. My diet!
The Smopers Chicken we ordered was dipped in soy garlic. I loved the crunchiness of the skin and the inside was cooked just right. It was a bit lacking in the taste of soy garlic but for less than Php150, it was worth the price.
The runaway winner of the day for us though was the beef bulgogi. It may not look so appetizing with the presentation done but the taste more than made up for it. It was just so good. I had to actually restrain myself from getting another order and getting more rice.
Overall, it was a pretty good experience and the food was pretty okay as well. I'd definitely recommend it as the fast food place to go for those craving for a quick bite of Korean food. It's not too fancy nor expensive so it will be something that fans of Korean food in a budget would love.

* I was invited to review the food. I did not pay for my meal. However, the free meal did not in any way sway my opinion and everything you read here is MY PERSONAL OPINION.
