My 3rd time here.

Tried again their Starking Fire Sushi. Meh. Not as impressed by it as my first time here.

Their bibimbap was not striking too. (Honestly, my homemade version tastes even better! 128516) It lacks the flavor I was looking for. A bit unsatisfied with how it turned out.

Ambiance is nice! Very modern and a bit edgy, as they take advantage of the modern furnitures and fixtures. Although I notice several bulbs out. 128517128517128517

Overall? It was ok. Would not be coming here any time soon though. 128517

And I'm back... + joining the #loolooexplorerpackgiveaway 127881

Here's my review for Chef's Noodle (this is my fave korean restaurant... and when I say my fave, you should try it also yay haha)

Chamchi Omelette, this is one of the reasons why I always pick Chef's Noodle over any restaurant whenever I'm at Rob Mag., this is a cheap yet-"you'll crave for more"-dish (promise!!!)

For the dessert, try their Super Chocolate Rocky Road Rice Cake!!! It's a cheap deal for only 135bucks + it's cute127872

++ I also recommend their kimbap, cheap yet decent🙃

Other than the food they serve, their staffs are well-mannered (and that's what I'd pick more than any good food, something money can't buy... yes? yes!)

And their restaurant is 'photogenic'

Wasn't really in the mood of eating Korean food but boyfie wanted so we ended here. Servings were big, really good for sharing. We ordered "good for two" kind of meal. It comprises their Chef Noodles plus Two Bibimbap. Review starts here;

Their noodles is tasty, you really could identify what flavor are you eating. Well as for us, we ate the noodles with beef on it. I chose Chicken Bibimbap while boyfie had Beef Bibimbap. I felt that their Bibimbap was not equally portioned. Heh 9996🏼️ Meat is few, for me Veggies is few and rice is a lot. That is why the taste wasn't equal too.

Overall, it was fine.

We had the set menu consisting of 2 bowls of beef bibimbap, Chef's special noodle, 2 glasses of lemon iced tea and all for 455php 9786️ We also had their 5 pcs korean chicken wings and 2 chocolate kitkat slush. Everything was served hot and fresh from the pan! The bibimbap was good, fresh ingredients were used and it was served real hot ! The Chef's special was also tasty, right amount of salt and not to peppery.

All in all, we had a great dining experience all for under 1,000php 9786128079🏻 I like it that there's no service charge, so customers have a choice on the amount to give as tip rather than being forced. Service was great though, so I really didn't mind giving a good enough tip 128076🏻

Oooooh so it's called bibimbap! >.< Mixed with love. (?) Mmm the chopsticks were hard to use cause it's steel and slim 128514but Rainer P know's how to 128525

Not a fan of korean food but I like kimchi and anything maki-ish!! The beef kimbap was good especially with the sauce + kimchi on the side. Would've tried the "Chef's Noodle" ramen version but we might be too full to finish everything, and i'd want to prioritize yukoshen so....maybe next time after n years.

First time to visit Robinsons Magnolia last Sunday with mom. 128109 So before we go to the Supermarket we were so hungry and end up at Chef's Noodles just located at the Ground floor.

We were reading their menu outside and the staff assigned was very accommodative to us. They have their all day lunch promo , for only 99 pesos single order of their best seller Chef's noodles127858 then ice tea127865.

So we went inside. There were not much people eating there around eto I think. So we find good seat and they have a good interior. In just few minutes our noodles came and it was so sulit, the broth was perfect not to strong and they have a lot of ingredients indies like crab , beef , egg then the ice tea has generous serving too and taste good 127865

They have wifi and staffs were nice. Good customer service. No vat and service charge imagine 99 pesos for the noodles and ice tea sobrang dami for a fine dine in restaurant like that , good deal128077127860

Im not much of a korean noodle eater but i definitely loved the cold soup. Altho lacking in some taste and flavor, i find the dumpling noodle soup good at some point. 127858127858127858

I was luckily picked at one of Theresa L's giveaway contest on her blog, and that's for Chef's Noodle. I never usually win at any raffle contests, be it online or via paper "bunutan"; so I'm really surprised and happy, at the same time. The 1,000 worth of food via complimentary card felt like too much for me, so I invited 2 of my long time no see Bedan friends to join me for lunch at Chef’s Noodle.

We immediately got our seats when we came in at around lunch time. The place was a bit smaller from what I actually thought it was. I failed to read a lot about their food and so I asked my friends what they want, but they both told me na ako na ang bahala. Pressure! 128584

So I decided to get the following: Seafood Pajun, Chef’s Noodle, Shrimp Twigim, Starking Sushi (Tuna), 4 cups of Korean rice & Stairway to Heaven. We waited for just few moments until our tables were already filled with food.

Seafood Pajun – Ddukbokki Carbonara wasn’t available that time and so we exchange it for this. Unfortunately, it wasn’t good. It’s bland. Both of them agreed! 1/5

Shrimp Twigim – This is just like Shrimp tempura, nothing special but at least, not bland. It comes with few onion rings that we thought was good. 3/5

Starking Sushi – I actually expected something more about this dish. Okay, so the server put the raw sushi on our table and torched it in front of us. Amaziiing! 128558 But wait, did he just ask us how we want it to be? 128566128566128566 Ehem, well, not bad at all, but like what I’ve said, I expected something more about this dish. 3/5

Korean Rice – this is a different kind of rice, must be Korean rice, right? 128562 It was good; it tastes something that will linger on your palate, but in a good way. I’m not sure what’s on top of it, if it’s an algae or some sort of seaweeds. 4/5

Chef’s Noodle – this was everyone’s favorite. It was really good, filling, topping-filled and served hot. My friends thought it was their favorite among everything from the mains! 5/5

Stairway to heaven – Another everyone’s favorite, 3 scoops of ice cream with several toppings on top and lying on a patched lettuce bed. By the way, we didn’t eat the lettuce. 128519

Overall, it was so-so. Their staffs were attentive and courteous at all times. I’d love to go back to try the Ddukbokki Carbonara on my next visit, hopefully. 128513

P. S. Thanks Teta!

not bad - not great. The Bibimbap (3.5/5 ) is edible :) while their signature chef's noodles (3/5 ) is nothing to die for...

I love the fact that this is a restaurant (not a food court stall) with affordable prices. I ordered the bibimbap and it was delicious. Plus points for the Chef's Noodle for having refillable soup. The food that failed our expectation was the pajun. Definitely won't order that next time.

We were late to see X-Men and too early for the next showing so we decided to have dinner at Chef's Noodle in Robinson's Magnolia.

It's kinda surprising that the place only had few customers because the food was great. I specifically loved their Kimbap and Jjampong. The Jjampong was not that hot and it's just the way I like it. 127836

I would also give their service an A. The staff we're so efficient and attentive. The price is surprisingly cheap. The servings are good for two. 128077

Over-all it was a good discovery and we'd love to go back there. 128516

Unlike usual Bloggers Event, it's my first time to attend Ribbon Cutting where we can order anything we want from the menu 128055128055128055

• PLACE
- The place inside was just small in my opinion. But they offer al fresco dining. With bright yellow hues that looks like Yabu. Haha. Only that they have different antics stuffs that gives a place a homey feeling.128522

• SERVICE
* Not going to comment since it's a bloggers event * Though, our foods came 45 minutes late. I guess it's part of the crew's "stress test"? But to be fair, we are the last to order among all the guest kasi, that's why I understand 128514128514128514

• FOOD and PRICE
We ordered the following:

✅ Star King Fire Sushi /5pcs per serving
Shrimp Sushi (298 pesos) Beef Sushi (225 pesos) Tuna Sushi (245 pesos)
- Make sure to order these for a complete experience. Sushi served raw and to be torched in front of you. Choose between Medium or Well done. From the 3 varieties, I really loved the Tuna the most! It's really fresh and really good! Unexpectedly, the Beef and Shrimp was bland for my liking. I can't barely taste anything (only when I dipped on their flavorful sauce --its really good as well, not the usual sauce 128521) I think they forgot to put some dash of salt on our Beef and Shrimp sushi. 128517

✅ Japchae (195 pesos) - One of the dish I loved! Their version is a bit saucy. It's not super sticky and dry like BonChon's. It's thinly covered with flavorful sauce. 128077

Chef's Noodle (225 pesos) - Noodle made of beef broth, korean noodles, leeks, bean sprout, samsek, spring onion, egg roll, bulgogi and the fried tofu with korean letters. 128552 it pretty much reminded me of miso soup. 128517

Cucumber Salad (85 pesos) - One of their appetizer. Not a fan on spicy foods but you can decide if you want it to be mild, medium, or strong. 128516

Pajun (198 pesos for Bulgogi & 245 for seafood) I wasn't able to taste this since it was mistakenly placed on our table. Haha128514

Wanja Steak Jun (298 pesos) - A korean beef patty served with egg, cheese, teriyaki sauce and topped with sesame seeds. This one was just okay as well, one of the interesting finds in Chef's Noodle.

✅ Ddukbokki Carbonara (245 pesos) - I was completely curious with this. Seeing a carbonara on korean resto? 128552 But boy, make sure to order this!128525 A dowel shaped pasta marbled with creamy carbonara sauce on a sticky texture of pasta! Really interesting! 128525128525128525

Leek Shrimp Twigim (345 pesos) - Straight to the point dish made up of leeks, special tempura batter with curry. This can be skipped though128518

Shrimp Twigim (345 pesos) - I'm a tempura lover but for some reason, i didn't find this good. It has shrimp tempura, fried shrimp, onions rings served with cabbage salad. I don't know if there's a problem with the batter or the seafood itself. 128557

Stairway to Heaven (175 pesos) 3 scoops of different ice cream beautifully garnished with lettuce. It's really kyot!!! With mallows, beans and nata de coco, it's perfect to end a heavy meal! 128055128055128055
