Min Sok Restaurant Lunch
I was tasked to decide on where to eat lunch and I thought of bringing us to a Korean Restaurant in Makati. But where? Initially, I thought of Bi Won but I don’t think they have a branch in Makati so I did some research. I managed to list the following restaurants and picked Min Sok.
- Ara Restaurant
- Min Sok Korean Restaurant
- Manna Korea Garden
- Dong Won Korean Restaurant
Min Sook is not that hard to find if you are on the correct lane but unfortunately for us, we were not so we had to take a tour of Rockwell before we can reach Min Sok. Across the street, you will see another korean restaurant called Manna Korea Garden. Enough about that, let’s move on to the food .
Our first order would be the grilled meat where you will wrap it in lettuce or cabbage then devour it in one bite. The owner was kind enough to show us a demo and she literally fed to me the sangchu ssam she created.
The procedure was…
- Get a piece of meat from the electric grill and dip it in oil.
- Bend the end of the lettuce/cabbage and place the meat on the valley created by the bend.
- Add the sauce (ssamjang), garlic or onions, and chili
- Wrap them all in a circle
- Devour in one swift motion
This was their squid omelet and they sliced it into 8 pizza slices. The squid was flavorful even without using the sauce.
The dish is very familiar. It tastes like congee or Arroz Caldo with chicken. The chicken has been boiled to the point where you can chew on the bones easily. It was expensive though.
Here were some of the side dishes. I wasn’t able to capture all but see the amount of kimchi in the pic.
This was the 2nd Korean restaurant I have eaten in and the experience was similar; very satisfied. The prices might be steep when you will browse the menu but their grilled dishes were meant for sharing and it’s a good experience to try once in a while. Can’t wait to try out the other Korean Restaurants located at Makati.
