Korean Food for Dinner

Ever since I was introduced to Korean food, I just can't seem to get enough of it. There was even a time when I was craving so much for Rabokki (stir fried noodles and rice cake) that I wanted to go out and go to that Korean place where my friends and I eat 15-20 minutes away, order, have it to go and eat at home while doing some work. I fought the urge. This was about 1 week and 2 days ago. But my sis and I had Korean for dinner 4 days after that craving and needless to say, I had delighted taste buds and full stomach after.  

Korean Dinner: Kimbab, Robbuki, Kimchi, and I don't know what those other 3 bowls have.


A very spicy stir fried noodles and rice cake with vegetables and egg and I believe it also has fish cake. This food is very addicting especially if you are into anything spicy. Robukki should be eaten while it's hot because somehow, it just doesn't taste as good and as spicy anymore.


Kimbab is like a Korean version of the Japanese Maki minus the wasabi in the dip. If you like Maki, then you will also enjoy Kimbab.

My friends and I notice how Korean food are mostly that of vegetables, no meat whatsoever and their foods are cooked boiled, broiled, steamed and almost never use cooking oil so we always say: "This is healthy...". If we say that because it's true or just to calm our guilty conscience for being too stuffed, we are not sure. ;)

I will promote the Korean place we eat at but it's Korean and I don't know the name. I can give you some details though, it's located in Escriva Drive in Ortigas, in between Astoria Plaza and Millenia, it's just beside Mini Stop. You'll find it because you will see the outside with Korean writings and you just have to go inside, open the door in front of the Korean "grocery store", and you're there. No worries about the price because for the meal above we paid P140 (less than $3.50) each and the "appetizers" in the 4 bowls are for free and refillable. Totally cheap but the food tastes like gold. Or something like that. :)

Let me know if you have any suggestions!


  1. Thank you for suggesting this place. I love spicy food and it's a shame that I have tried Sorabol in Greenhills. I have to drag my hubby to this place one of these days but he's not a fan of anything spicy. Any suggestions for him?

  2. They have this cold noodles, I forgot the name but you can ask the server for the "cold noodles with peanut oil", it's also yummy and the "black noodles". Both are not spicy. Sorry, I forgot their names eh. :)

  3. Yum yum! I haven't tried kimbab, parang masarap..

  4. We lived in Korea for a while in the 1990'a. I loved the food.
