My dining experience at Korean palace is always very memorable. It has grown from the 3 other times I’ve eaten here. It’s very reasonable at P399 and really worth every centavo.

Kung Jeon is our requisite lunch stopover upon arriving in Baguio. For ₱399, you have different choices for sides and meat. There's also soup and rice of course.
Our trip being faster than expected (thanks to the new Pozorrubio exit), we were at Baguio by 9:30AM 128518 thought of passing by baguio Cathedral first since it was a Sunday but traffic was terrible so adjusted our destination and went straight to kung Jeon for super early lunch. We were there by 10AM and they were already open. Everything was already set and ready by 10.
Initially we were seated inside but the (weird) music was too loud so we transferred outside. Really prefer the outdoor tables so you can enjoy the cool breeze as well as not smell like smoke too much.
Had a lot of their beef (as usual) but actually enjoyed the sides more 128513 had my fill of their panjeon, korean bean sprouts, watercress and kimbap! Even though we were there early, the place started filling up soon after.
Bathroom is 128078 though so yeah do your beezneez elsewhere haha!
Try this place out when you're in the city of pines!

Annyeong Haseyo! During our stay in Baguio, we deiced to try the famous Korean Eat All You Can Samgyupsal at Kung Jeon Baguio Korean Palace located at along South Drive, Baguio City, Benguet.
Kung Jeon has the “homey” ambiance. You can dine inside the Palace or at the outdoor dining area. The buffet costs Php 399.00 per pax and strictly no leftovers because they will charge you Php 500. For the grillables you can choose from pork and beef bulgogi, samgyupsal pork belly, marinated and boneless chicken and other dishes are also available (mostly Filipino dishes) like potato marbles, kimchi, kimbap, fried banana wraps, fried sweet potato, veggies, gimari, noodles and soup.

They have generous cuts for the meat but some are slightly frozen making it hard to cook. You can taste that marinated meat were meticulously prepared, really delicious and I’m giving it an A score. Additionally, you can wear and have unlimited pictorials with their traditional Korean costume (Hanbok) for FREE.

Overall, we have had a great experience on their grill-all-you can as well as their traditional costume. Forget the diet for a while because this is a good place to pig-out. A must-visit place.

Kung Jeon Korean Palace is now a must for us when in Baguio 128522 nasa Baguio na Korean parin?? Lol yesss! Their 399 buffet is super sulit with an assortment of beef, pork and chicken. Unlimited rice and a wide assortment of side dishes.
Coming up to Baguio (and after our failed attempt at dagupeña 128566), we went straight to kung jeon for lunch. It was noon by the time we arrived and we actually got a bit scared cos there were already so many cars parked. Surprisingly, they were able to accommodate us and we were seated outside where we enjoyed the cool breeze. I actually prefer sitting outside so the smoke isn't all over your face and clothes.
They really had a lot of good side dishes and the meat were all particularly good as well 128077🏼 we ate to our heart's content (but not as much as the other tables did 128513) and left with about after an hour or so.
You can also borrow the traditional hanbok and have your pictures taken which we did a couple of years ago 127886

Korean Palace

Having dinner in this Restaurant is amazing. Since it is situated in Baguio, Philippines. It is really a good place to explore your tummy cravings. They have a spacious parking. You get to choose the place to eat whether it will be outside which is alfresco, or within the old house with varieties of Korean Food. The highlight of it would be the Pictorials. They will be providing clothes/costumes straight from Korea for you to have it on and strike your best pose! Aja!

Español:

Cenar en este restaurante es increíble. Ya que está situado en Baguio, Filipinas. Es realmente un buen lugar para explorar sus antojos de estómago. Tienen un amplio estacionamiento. Usted puede elegir el lugar para comer si será fuera, que es al aire libre, o dentro de la antigua casa con variedades de comida coreana. Lo más destacado de ella serían las ilustraciones. ¡ ellos estarán proporcionando ropa/trajes directamente de Corea para que usted lo tenga en y golpear su mejor postura! Aja!

We passed by kung jeon several times and I saw that they had a php399 eat all you can special! Though I was all korean'd out, kept this in mind just in case!
So one time that the line in canto was crazy, we decided to go to kung jeon. Ample parking but kinda weird that they only had a few tables inside. The waiters weren't really too pro active as well in setting up a place for us. We decided to stay outside to enjoy the cool breeze and avoid smelling like bbq.
Good food all in all, my sister said the kimchi was great.
But what we really liked was you can play dress up and have your pictures taken! They had a lot of traditional costumes for males, females and kids and you could pose all you want in front of the tarp, haha!

Its a house converted into a resto , not that big but can accomodate group of people in their private rooms ....there's also a patio outside for those who like al fresco.

We tried their korean buffet barbeque... Most of the meats are premarinated and you get to cook your own ...ready to grill !

and what makes it diff from the other korean resto is that you can try to wear traditional korean costumes for free hehehhe .... Selfies!!!!

And was back again for some or a lot of samgyupsal , bulgogi, and other Korean spread buffet bbq style, appetizers , noodle dishes & Korean sushi ... Was soooo worth it... But I was thirsty the entire next day... 128560... Maybe coz of the spices or in the marinated meat

We were seated al Fresco at first coz we would also like to enjoy the climate ... But then there were mosquitos & I won't wanna risk getting dengue ... Not that the place was dirty... But better be safe than sorry ... They were kind to assist us when out group of 10 all moved inside ... Nice service I would say & the owner was there to see to it that we have everything we need

4th day of our vacation here in Baguio, and what a sumptuous lunch along the South Drive going CJ Hay than this another korean buffet Resto at 399. Grill it yourself pork and beef marinated or just plain. To compensate and balance it there's lots of veggies. We were fortunate that the lady owner was there as she was treating her children, she demonstrated to us how to wrap the grilled crispy pork with the lettuce. She first dipped it to the soya paste place the grilled korean garlic a piece of kimchi and a subtle amount of rice to wrap all out to your watering mouth. Liked the food the price well pricy but worth the ambiance cold weather of Baguio (esp The grilling part to make you warm) but when you are commuting hard to get transport public, so I recom to bring along your vehicle to the place medyo matirik lang konti128522. 11088110881108811088

price has now increased to P399 per head - its a no nonsense authentic korean grill buffet . being an old house it can only seat about 20 - 25 pax at a time so come early or be willing to wait . the meat choices are seasoned well and the condiments choices are varied and authentic . the lettuce to wrap your grilled meats in are as fresh as expected in Baguio , which means freshly picked . tendr beef , thinly sliced pork , chicken . id come back . truly value for money !

We were on our way back to Burnham Park to look for a place to eat when we spotted this Korean place along the road within Camp John Hay. It's hard to spot the place without the tarpaulin and colorful lights. It was located along the road but it required a bit of a climb (by car) up the hill. It's pretty hard to maneuver a big car in there because of the sharp turns. The rain and fog didn't help so much either!

The no-frills design of the place would make you think twice about the quality of the food (and the cleanliness even). The bathroom is even co-ed, yikes. But even then, it didn't bother me much considering the heavy weight I usually place on ambience.

Right at the entrance you'd see the stack of fresh lettuce, pans of raw meat, and everything else you'd need for samgyeopsal. It was really the perfect meal to pair with the cold 19° evening air. It was a modest selection for an "unlimited buffet" but it was pretty great!

The place also had an ala carte menu, a freezer filled with Korean icecream (not part of the buffet sadly), and a rack filled with colorful hanbok dresses you could wear for fun! The parking spaces were limited but the service was great!

Highly recommended.
