Two orders of korean noodles served in one bowl. Why not?

The reason I'm giving this 5 stars is because Hana Yo has been a personal staple of mine for many years. When I need that quick Korean fix (yes, Looloo... Hana Yo isn't a Japanese restaurant, it's Korean 128540), this place has always been an option.

One of those quaint and almost unnoticeable hole-in-the-wall's in BF. You probably wouldn't give it a second look unless you went there for Ton-Ton's massage, much less expect the food to be this good.

Specialties here are their donkas (Korean tonkatsu), jjajangmyeon (stir fried noodle in black soybean sauce), and jjamppong (spicy noodle soup with mixed seafood). I would recommend their kimbap too! Food here isn't dirt cheap, but it's not expensive either at P150-P300. Korean restaurants aren't always the bbq and samgyeopsal types, and this is a good example.

Don't let the exterior (and interior) fool you. If you can appreciate good, quick Korean comfort food... you'll definitely like it here.

'Don't judge the book by its cover' is the most appropriate starting line for this review. Hana Yo doesn't even look like a store from the outside, it looks like an old mini 'parlor' (not even a salon, sorry!) and the smell when you first enter the place is not so appetizing. I wouldn't enter it if not for the nice reviews in Looloo.

The food, as advised, was surprisingly delicious. It's way better than Kaya or other Korean restaurants that I've tried. The servings are good for sharing. As for the price, it's very affordable. It'll be money well spent.

Initially tried to eat at Sensei for late lunch, but for some reason they were closed for temporary renovations. I think we already tried to eat here thrice since I came back from vacation and it has never pushed through. 128532 Since most of the establishments around were also closed, we decided to just eat at the restaurant right across from where we were (which was advertised as a Japanese-Korean restaurant). I wasn't very happy at first, considering the place looked dingy and not well-maintained from the outside. When we were seated at our table, though, we noticed that the utensils were clean and there were Korean regulars already seated and enjoying their orders so I decided to just sit back and relax already. 128522

The food consisted mostly of rice meals, so I decided to try their Omurice (with signature sauce and their special fried rice wrapped in an omelette). I also had my staple, which was their Kimbap. The boyfriend had their Spicy Chicken (which we suggest you order for sharing, as it's easily good for 2-3 people) partnered with an order of Kimchi Fried Rice (with egg on top). He said that their chicken tasted like Bonchon's, only much better. Crispy skin, and each bite was packed full of heat and a deluge of contrasting spicy sweet flavors. 128522

The prices were easy on the pocket (P175-P600 per dish), and everything we ordered was quite flavorful and had very generous servings. Super sulit, our bill was below P1,000 and we took home a lot of leftovers for later consumption. 128522 The -1 star on the review is only because the service was extremely slow, and the only waitress present wasn't very attentive. Overall, I'd say we enjoyed our experience and we'd definitely come back if we find ourselves in the area again. 128522

*note: This is a Korean-Japanese restaurant.

Me and may friends have shared countless memories here, from after class foodtrips to term break reunions.

Anyway about the food. Yes it is A+++ and yes they give them out in huge servings, for a very reasonable price.

What to order: There's hardly any time that we went here and haven't gotten Kimbap (김밥). Other great dishes are Jjajangmyun (짜장면), which is noodles in bean paste, and Omu rice, a sort of Korean Aroz Valenciana under scrambled egg. Get something spicy and you will be given a bottle of Yakult after eating! \m/
