Kim Chee Korean Cuisine
From a group of friends who loves food; Kim Chee Korean Cuisine offers grilled and healthy food.
Our second stop for the Zomato Hunger Games was at Kim Chee Korean cuisine.
Korean food is something that I love to eat especially Samgyeopsal. I can eat lots of meat and get my servings of veggies at the same time. At Kim Chee; we were treated with Samgyeopsal and other Korean dishes. Lucky me as one of those dishes was Korean Beef Stew (Gal Bi jjim). Each table had its own grill and a tube-like range hood (similar to what I saw at Namoo House). This allows more smoke from the grill to be sucked first before it can stick to your clothes.
Before the main dishes came out; the banchan (Korean side-dishes) came and it is exciting to know that these get rotated everyday. So whatever was served that day might not be there tomorrow but will make a comeback on other days. No anchovies today but the potato was the crowd favorite.
Now for the main dishes as they came out one by one…
A refreshing way to start the meal would to eat Kimbap (or rice rolls). It was crunchy, fresh and delicious!
This would be the veggie Samgyupsal as instead of meat; you will wrap kimchi and tofu inside the lettuce. It is also said that the proper way to eat this would be to put everything (what you have wrapped) in your mouth in one go. I tried, failed and was forced to bite it in half.
The beef stew was surprisingly sweet as compared to the other Korean Beef Stews I have tried (as they usually have a spicy kick). The beef was soft and so easy to chew. The only thing missing was rice!
As for the grilled meat, the following were served. These all came from their imported beef menu but they also local pork and beef for grilling.
Oh yeah, lastly we were served Korean Ice Cream and no pictures were taken because everyone simply jumped off their seats and attacked (cough K ..cough C… cough W… cough T… Cough F).
There’s not a lot of Korean restaurants at Marikina (as per Zomato) so Kim Chee is a welcome addition to the list. They serve authentic Korean Cuisine at reasonable prices. If I’m in Marikina craving for Korean; I know where to go.
