Me, Ruth D and homie Reich T answered to Happy Seoul's invite to FoodSocietyPH. It's one of the various food stalls at CommunEaty Roces Food Hub. We were welcomed by our gracious host Kani.

TBH, I'm not an expert when it comes to Korean cuisine. I can count the number of times I've visited a legit Korean restaurant. So I was excited in trying Happy Seoul. More so when Kani mentioned they adjusted their dishes to Filipino palate. When I heard that, I know I'll be in for a treat.

They allowed us to try five dishes from their menu:

🇰🇷Mandu (160) - 10 pieces of Korean dumpling with dipping sauce. Stuffed with meat and vegetables, each dumpling was tasty and a good start to our meal.

🇰🇷Bok Keumbap (80) - Kimchi fried rice mixed with ground pork and topped with sunny side up egg. It's Korean's version of our sinangag as the rice dish uses leftovers . Quick to execute but still satisfying!

🇰🇷Bibimpap (P180) - The infamous Korean mixed rice. The veggies were fresh and the sunny side up egg was perfectly done. There's a good amount of veggies and spice too. I wanted more beef to enjoy it. Also, it would have been better if there was burnt rice at the bottom to add a layer of crisp.

🇰🇷Dokgangjeong or sweet crispy chicken - Bite sized boneless chicken was ahmazing. Crispy on the outside and it was marinated well. Just the right amount of sweetness with a lil hint of chili.

🇰🇷Chadolbagi Gui (P245)- Grilled Beef Belly marinated in Bulgogi sauce with kimchi. They use US prime beef and the meat was tender and tasty! It's a perfect pair of Bok Keumbap so better order these two on your visit!

Affordable, straighforward and yummy dishes are a sure definition of Happy Seoul. Visit them if you're in the area!

Food Parks is the new black, gone are the days wherein you would have to travel to Makati every weekend to get some grub. Food Parks are everywhere! The phenomenon is spreading like wild fire. I’ve explored some that is outside of Makati, I visited two in the Marikina area. I am broadening my horizons and decided explore Quezon City. NOT! Me and my homies goy invited to try some Korean Grub at Communeaty (this is how it was spelled, I checked the signage twice)

Happy Seoul is the only stall that offers Korean grub in the park. A few years back, I would have said, that they are a lil cray-cray. Why? Offering a not so familiar cuisine inside a food park is gamble as customers would usually pick something familiar. This is not the case now, Korean Food has become a household name. Blame it on KPop and Lee Min Ho.

Kani is our host that night and she gave us a lil overview of the brand and the food. She answered all of our questions with enthusiasm and a smile. Now that is a good host, if you ask me.
Grub

Kimbap (Korean Style Roll with spicy dressing on top). Dem dumplings are cooked in a way that the exterior is crispy, I dunno if they used a special kind of wrapper. The exterior dictates that this was deep fried. The filling is comprised of ground meat mixed with veggies. This is just okay for me as I am not a fan of any Asian dumpling except siomai.

Bok Keumbap (Kimchi Fried Rice with ground pork topped with a sunny-side up egg). I recently developed a fascination with fermented cabbage. I like anything with Kimchi. The rice is cooked well and has generous servings of ground pork and oozing with awesome kimchi flavor. Yum!

Bibimbap (Korean Mixed Rice). I guess this will be 10x awesome when eaten hot. Alas! We took our sweet time taking photos and slaying the flat lay hence ze bibimbap is a lil cold when we tried it. It was good, one thing to note is that the sauce is really taste with the right amount of spice
Chadolbagi Gui (Grilled Beef Belly served with Kimchi). This takes top honors! Angus beef marinated in some awesome sauce then cooked to perfection. It is so tender and flavorful, I am craving for a bite now.

Dakgangjeong (Sweet Crispy Chicken). First honorable mention. Crispy chicken fillet served with some Korean Style Mayo. Happy Seoul sure knows how to make a mean fried chicken. They meant it when they said it is crispy. The meat inside is crispy and extremely juicy.

Overall, Korean Dinner at Happy Seoul delivered. We enjoyed everything they served. What makes them stand out in a pool of familiar, you ask? Good food at a reasonable price.

Peace Out!

Happy Seoul is Communeaty's Korean stall. They serve really good Korean dishes at a reasonable price.

In photo is their Bok Keum Bap which reminded me of the first Kimchi Fried Rice that I liked. I swear, the only difference is the price. This is much moooooooore affordable but just as good!128523

Other dishes I liked were the crunchy chicken and beef belly.

Happy seoul kimchi is one of the good ones ive had so far. The sweet-salty bulgogi is also worth mentioning because of its well marinated tender beef. The bibimbap is flavourful and the individual ingredients are cooked well, but the entire dish lacked a certain "oomph". Overall, a decent place to satisfy ones korean craving if ever you find yourself in Communeaty.
