The place was so darn cute! It's quite cramp but it kinda helped in making you feel like you are in a real train/train station. Since there's just limited space do not forget to get a reservation. I do not recommend this place for big groups. They can only accommodate around max of 6 per table.
The attendants here were very helpful and they gave us a free dessert but I guess it was their way of apologizing that they need to inform us that our time was almost up because our table is reserved for the next customer.
We really enjoyed the food. We picked the cheapest from the menu because they are quite pricey but still we were not disappointed.

Overall, good place, good service, good food so go ahead and try it yourself!

Clean, simple but a nice korean experience. Although., still on soft opening they offer delicious korean dishes that are all worth a try.

Best shared with small gatherings and dates

Place was cute. Food was just okay but expensive, and the servings were small. Especially disappointed in their Php350-bowl bibimbap which had nothing special to offer, really (i.e. compared to Paranara's Php150-bibimbap).

What an Interesting and cute concept for a Korean BBQ restaurant! Dining inside a subway train 128654128649 Doors open as you press a button, tv screens playing korean videos, cute cartoon art (check out the rest room), vibrant colors all around... Even a row of vending machines for kids! There's also a VIP room for larger groups (3k consumable on weekdays & 5k on weekends)

We were lucky to have one of the owners, Jonathan, show us around and recommend their best sellers... Here's what we were able to try:

Yangnyeom Galbi (Beef) @800 (House specialty) 128076🏼

Samgyeopsal (Pork) @350

Haemul Pajeon @350 - Seafood pancake 128076🏼

Dubu Jeon @220 - Fried tofu dish with special sauce 128076🏼 the sauce was indeed tasty!

Sundubu Jigae @320 - spicyyyyyy hot soup 128293

Bibim Naengmyun @300 - spicy cold noodles 128293

Free appetizers 128076🏼 Free refills!

Cute Mulsugeon for everyone- expanding paper towel pills

We liked the food here... nothing too spicy for me tho 128517 The Pajeon and the Galbi were my faves, Service was exceptionally good, maybe because we were early birds! Too bad the bingsus aren't available yet 128555 Boo!!! Prices are a bit expensive and servings not that big, but taste wise, everything was good!

Please call for reservations as the seating capacity is minimal, and get there early coz parking's a biatch!

Coolest Korean restaurant in Tomas Morato for their modern and cool interiors. From their name “Seoul Train”, the whole restaurant makes you feel like you’re inside one. The doors, the waiting area, and even the dining area all make you feel like commuting in Seoul. Super cool!
I learned about them from a friend you got to drop by the area when they were still constructing. We were so pleased we tried them!

Best call in advance to book a table as the place is quite small. You’ll have to wait if you visit during peak hours. They also have this function room for around 10 people, while the regular dining area has around 6 tables which can seat 4-5 people each.

We ordered the following:
SAMGYEOPSAL,YANGNYEOM DWAEJI GALBI, and WOO SAMGYUP for grilling. Their samgyeopsal was composed of three thick pork belly parts, the second one had this sweet pork marinade, and the third one is thin cut beef strips. I liked all of these orders. They were enough for five people to share. I liked that the meat quality was good. You may ask them to cook them for you if you want to eat right away. We chose to do it ourselves.

DOLSOT BIBIMBAP - filling and decent bibimbap. One serving may be shared by two people.

TTEOKBOKKI - we asked them to make this mild spicy but still arrived spicy. Haha, always happens in Korean stores! I think the rolled rice cake was a bit undercooked making it tough to chew. An okay dish for me.

It was a pretty satisfying meal. The meat served was good. I had a problem with their appetizers/side dishes. Unlike other Korean restos, they had this very limited choices and they provided such a small serving for five people to share and we were only allowed to have it refilled around two to three times. Super kulang. Side dishes include kimchi, sweet dilis, spinach, and small strips of odeng (fish cake). They also have to invest more on fresher and better (quality) vegetables. Very small leaves were given to us and also very limited. two to three refills only. They have to consider that we ordered three meat variants thus the need for more greens.. Disappointing.

Overall, giving them a 3.5 for the food. 4.5 stars for the ambiance and interiors.

Seoul Train has been open for only a few weeks but it has gained so much attention. The concept isn't exactly new here in the Philippines but what makes it attractive is its architectural and interior design. As the name implies, it has a train design which for me was executed very well. Do not expect multiple "coaches" though, as there's only one with only about 8 tables that can accommodate 4 people. Expect though, to wait before you get seated if you don't have any reservation during peak hours.

🔹 Samgyeopsal Jr. This is the thin version of the regular Samgyeopsal (thick pork belly meat). This is not marinated so it does not have any special taste.

🔹 Yangnyeom Dwaeji Galbi. Unlike the Samgyeopsal, this is already marinated. The pork is thinly sliced.

🔹 Jap Chae. Korean glass noodles. This is one of my favorite Korean dishes and Seoul Train did not disappoint.

🔹 Tteokbokki. This popular Korean street food is composed of rice cake, fish cake, and whatever it is that makes it spicy. But there's a non-spicy variation where it's just made with soy. At Seoul Train, you have the option to have this sweet, mild(ly) spicy, or spicy. I ordered the sweet one but it still had a little spicy kick.

🔹 Makgeolli (Peach flavor). For our beverage, we were "influenced" by one of the Korean owners to have this alcoholic drink. I wanted to decline when he said it had 3% alcohol content but we still tried it anyway. It was just okay. It's served by the bottle.

Service was good but it wasn't consistent. They ask if you want to have your meat grilled by them so that's good. Calling their attention should be easy since they have a push button paging system on each table but that wasn't the case. Either they turned deaf (because I could here the sound from where I was seated), they weren't trained to respond to a call, or they just didn't care at all. So, it was easier to just call them out. And with that small space, I think the paging system was pointless. Oh, and there was a little hiccup with the Tteokbokki I ordered when they served the spicy variant and a server insisted that it was just sweet. They changed it eventually after returning it twice to the kitchen. So, product knowledge and service could still very much improve.

I'd still go back to try the other dishes and their Bingsu which wasn't available yet when I went a couple of weeks ago.

All aboard!!!!! Choochooo!!!!! 128642128649128645128650128669

This cool Korean restaurant never fails to amuse me! It brings out the child in me! Upon entering the train station (kuno), we were welcomed with "Grab a Toy" machine. While waiting for your seat, you can play with it using a P10 coin. 🕹

The concept of the restaurant is like you're inside a train. The door to the restaurant is like a replica of a train door. The dining space is small, just like the size of a cabin of a train. With a capacity of approximately 30-40pax only (around 8-10 tables). I suggest you book your ticket, i mean you book a table in advance just to be sure of your seat. 128521

There's also a function room with 3 tables. Capacity of around 18pax. But there's a consumable of p3000 per table for Mondays-Thursdays and P5000 for Fridays-Sundays.

As for the foods, we ordered:

Samgyeopsal P350 127775127775127775 - grilled pork. I find it too thick. We should have ordered the samgyeopsal Jr. instead. Thinner version and bacon like. 128055

Dak Galbi P350 127775127775127775127775127775- marinated chicken. I like the sweet taste of it. 128020

Kimbap P210 127775127775127775127775127775 - sushi combined with various other ingredients (which i forgot to ask what's inside 128513) It tastes good tho 128521

Sundubu Jjiage P320 127775127775127775127775127775 - my favorite! 128156 It's a spicy soup with tofu, vegetables and clams inside. 127858 Orange in color!

Dolsot Bibimbap P350 127775127775127775127775127775 - rice with ground pork, egg and various types of vegetable. Comes with hot sauce. The spicier the better! 128541

Jap Chae P490 127775127775127775127775127775 - Korean glass noodles. Very flavourful and yummy! I love it!! 128525

We are very satisfied with our dinner last night and I will definitely come back for more!!

Just this weekend, my protegeés brought me to a new dining place just a few steps away from their office. The exteriors up to its interiors were surely quite noticing... It was like embarking on a train ride wherein you enter the platform and make your way into the carriage for a gastronomic trip! The more I got excited when I got inside because The theme was a mixture of K-Pop meets MTR Subway with the tiled walls, cool graphics and modern-industrial interiors...and I was so much bitten by the Korean bug, hehehe :D

Anyway while gazing at the interiors came the foodies....we were so hungry that time and having something quick was the best answer to it, hence, we tried the hearty Beef Bulgogi which has options for sharing, and their Dumplings which had a bit of crispy texture on the outside. Before serving the main dishes were bowls of yummy appetizers, these would keep you busy while waiting for your food 128522

I really enjoyed the quick dining experience as much as I loved the interior happenings...if we only had much time maybe we could have tried their prized korean bbq meats... So with this I guess I shall definitely be back to dive deeper into their menu and try more delicious korean foodies... On a glacial phase, hehehe 12852210084

So...let's hop aboard the Seoul Train 128522128077🏻10084127858127865
