Sariwon Korean Barbecue, Philippines (Fort Bonifacio)
After a stressful week and 3 straight midterms for the day, my sister treated me at Sariwon, a korean which just opened last friday.
Counter-Clockwise: Green spinach,soybean sprout with red and green pepper, mashed pumpkin and potato, seasoned radish kimchi, roasted anchovy with chili and kimchi. Our favorite was the mashed pumpkin and potato. The flavor is similar with eggs with mayonnaise. Personally, I liked the seasoned radish kimchi as well, it actually tasted like atsara.;)
We had a complimentary rice tea and of course the side dishes which Korean restaurants give everytime you their guests.We also had a salad which was very refreshing.The vinagrette was good, not to sour! In fact, it tasted like sesame roasted sauce.:)
We had Sariwon Bulgogi, (150g) for P545. It is a silky thin slices of USDA choice beef grilled right at your table. Served with their signature Sariwon sauce and freshly made potato noodles.I can taste the wine from the Sariwon sauce. I believe this is best with sticky rice however we are eating at only 4pm so we can’t that heavy yet. The potato noodles actually resembles Jap Chae but wet version.
Sariwon sauce is served with 12 different fruits and vegetables including apples,pears,pineapples , onions and celery. This mixture is blended with red wine and. boiled over high heat for about 3 hours. Slightly sweet, tangy and flavorful.:)
We also had the Haemul Pajeon (P350) . It is a traditional Korean pancake made with squid, shrimp, oysters and green onions.I can say the shrimp is fresh because it was soft. Plus I can really finish the whole thing unlike other Korean restaurants where the pancake is dry.The dipping sauce was just right! Not too sour but actually I find it sweet too:DPlus, it tastes like the roti in Indian cuisines with vegetables and seafood.
Plus, they served us a dessert which is made of rice and water.It was cold and the texture is softer than the usual rice.
Plus, the best thing about this restaurant are their friendly staff!Don’t you want to eat in a restaurant with smiling staff serving your table? Of course, you’d want it!
