It was a long drive down south and waze brought us to the tailend of C6 road. This led us to a new Koryan discovery in Q. Plaza across Sta. Lucia Mall in Cainta.

Satisfied our soup cravings with the Hotpot (P900). The restaurant in not packed and they even assisted us in preparing the steaming hot soup.

They offer unlimited pork BBQ for P299 per head but we opt for the ala carte serving of Samgyeopsal (P280) and Chadolbagi (P350) for the four of us. The set is served with rice and sides. We are so full despite skipping the unli-BBQ. Authentic korean flavors within the regular price range. It was a good try.

loved this place when I first dined in around July.
Eat all you can for just 399- all pork and beef..

Yesterday, I came back and noted three differences...

1. no free unli coffee - I was looking forward to this
2. no unli chap chae- we paid for 200 pesos ala carte
3. no sweel potato as side dish

the server said coffee is out of stock while 2 and 3 are only offered on weekends. note that there is no price difference.
Looking on the bright side, I just maximized the meat instead of having other carbs. haha.

cabbage and all other in the picture are included in the eat all you can. all except the chap chae.

over-all, I still love the price point and delicious and fresh food.
I also like that they have free aluminum packs for Melona ice cream take out.

I will definitely go back, but on a weekend.

I wish I learned about this restaurant sooner! The moment I spotted the Korean owners accommodating the guests, I knew we were in for a treat. True enough, we were seated right away and there were no delays in taking our orders. The appetizers, meats, rice, etc were served on time.

The food quality is good! It's no different from dining in pricier Korean restos in the metro (think Sariwon or Soban K-Town Grill).

Korean folks flock the place, so I think it says a lot on how authentic it is. I have never been to Korea, so. :(

The slight downside would be the quality of service of the staff and my mango shake which was only half of a small mason jar. O.O Why???

Overall, definitely worth going back to: Value for money, sweet owners, (smiles often), clean dining area, and good food!!!

A great discovery! Tucked behind Q Plaza, just a couple of minutes away from my house is an authentic Korean Restaurant! 128079🏼128079🏼128079🏼

Owned by a warm Korean couple, this place serves all the expected Korean favorites.

Great fresh meat and vegetables at very affordable rates! Selection is not as wide as Sambo- or Yakimix though.

The boyfriend discovered a buffet place near his house, and I couldn't say no to new dining experiences! We arrived around 12nn, and the place is still quite empty even for a weekend lunch time.

Their buffet is normally pegged at Php 399 for lunch, but they have a promo for the month of June. Php 350 for a Korean BBQ and shabu shabu buffet? I think it was okay. Not everything in the buffet selection was fresh, so that was a big downer. And the dessert bar could have more to offer than just a few slices of brownies, an ice cream bar, and store-bought cookies.

On the upside, the shabu shabu was good! The base soup was a bit spicy, and that really woke me up. I also enjoyed their maki because they used real and fresh salmon.

Overall, my dining experience was okay. I think I like this better than Don Day :)

A Korean Buffet nearby! Make-your-own Bibimbap and Chicken Bbq are my favorites. They also have japche, kimchi (of course), kimbap, kimchi rice, etc. They also have smokeless grill and shabu-shabu. Drinks are included in the buffet. Softdrinks, lipton iced tea (lemon and red), and unlimited vendo coffee. Desserts are ok, but not something I looked forward to (even for someone who has a sweet tooth). It was just two flavors of ice cream and a variety of candies to top it with.

The place is small but doesn't seem to get that packed just yet since it's new. But I don't think that's gonna last too long. It's a must try. Very affordable and sulit. Plus, the staff are very nice.

THUMBS UP: Since it's a new place, it isn't easily jampacked even on a weekend, so you can take your sweet time trying out everything.

They have shabu-shabu ingredients and small slices of meat and seafood for grilling (that you will cook at your table), various kinds of sushi, sashimi, kimchi, soups, and salad. For those who don't want to be too adventurous, they also have barbecues and desserts including ice cream scoops. They have different hot and cold drinks, too.

Their price is more affordable than MOST buffets I've been in - well if you go here on a weekday lunch, that is. Mon-Sat lunch is just P399, dinner is P570. On a Sunday, it's P570 anytime. I think Yakimix is pegged at P450.

Service was fast and efficient, the daughter was free of charge since it was her birthday the day before. Kids 4.5ft and above are charged P200.

THUMBS DOWN: For a buffet restaurant, their place was small. They have seats reserved for buffet customers and the other smaller side was for the a la carte customers. Since we were a big group with a lot of kids, we already occupied one-third of the buffet tables. Once other guests arrived (some were also big groups!), it started to get crowded. Their middle aisle between the tables can fit just one person at a time.

From the outside, it's not very attractive. Gray glass with their name, tarpaulin with promo prices, some text in Korean... But when we opened the door, it was like we entered Wonderland. It was especially amazing since we were their first guests for the day, so it felt like we had the whole endless table of food to ourselves.

VERDICT: This place is a gem. It's not part of SM or whatever super busy mall so foot traffic is light. I would definitely want to go back here with friends who have a hearty appetite.
