First of all, their restaurant is a bit gloomy. It was only my second time to eat here and the last time I think was 5 years ago? And for the second time, we were the only customers inside. But for that long time, this place survived. So I think they have many customers too, and for so many Loolooers giving it a five star rating, maybe there's more to it that I should try. Sorry guys, I'm not that much of a Korean food fan.

You guys remember the show Only You that starred Angel Locsin? That was what made me eat at Silla way back then. Angel's character was a budding chef and her specialty was Korean Bibimbap with a touch of Filipino flavor. This restaurant was their partner in selling that Bibimbap with that recipe. So here I was suddenly craving for it one night.

Unfortunately, they didn't stick to that recipe. They had to bring back their version. Of course, that recipe was only good for a limited time only. Didn't like it though. I think it lacked ingredients and flavor.

I read some of the reviews here, and yes, the service was good. The Korean woman in the counter greets customers always with a warm smile. 9996🏻️

Well, well, well! After the not so happy experience in the other Korean resto we just had to erase that nega vibes and go to our fave Korean place owned by a Korean lady - Chef Lim 128512 I've been going to this place for almost a decade and the quality of their dishes just gets better! I swear! The place is old alright but you get the real thing here. The owner teaches cooking at Heny Sison's Culinary School thus I'm pretty sure she'd train her sous chef well 128521

The patrons are mostly Koreans so I rest my case...hmmm 128522

We had dolsot bibimbap and kalbi beef, and they were gooood! 128079128079128079

I'll stick to this fave place...tried and tested and homey too.

I don't recommend...there are more authentic korean restos than this one. Food is pricey for the serving size. Not satisfied.

Other than Japanese cuisine, I also like some korean food. What i like most of korean food is their huge variety of side dishes and of course bibimbap.
We were in search of a korean restaurant before we even find this one since my hubby and I were in the timog and tomas morato area that day. We happen to pass by Silla and thought to try it. It's easy to find. It's just situated in the corner of timog and tomas morato across imperial suites.
Place was a bit small but clean. Price is okay since they have big servings and some dishes are food for sharing. Love the side dishes!

After a looong-suffering craving, finally I went back! 128522

When I was still living in QC, this was my go-to korean place. I literally go here everytime I crave even if I'm in my boxers since I'm just a coupla blocks away. And it's not because it's near... 128521

This is a very unassuming restaurant. The facade looks like it's a competitor of Kanin Club, and well, the name Silla is spanish for chair, i think. So if you haven't tried this yet, you wouldn't get interested because of its confusing identity. Still, when you get inside, you'll still wonder what kind of food they serve. It's not the typical korean resto where each table has a vent and a grill, it's totally like a Filipino restaurant with wooden tables and chairs and a window with stained capiz. Pretty confusing right?

However, all your questions will be answered as soon as you see the owner, the very charming and smiling-face korean woman who mans the cashier and bar, and once you eat their food, you'll know. 128077

After my meeting, I was dead-on set in eating here and for this particular visit, I ordered:

128076 My favorite soup, Suntofu Chige - it's a soft-tofu stew with pork, shells, and veggies. And yes, it's purrrty spicy! 128077 I love it because of how the pork broth and the clams are blended well, no weirdness in taste whatsoever. The stew is a bit creamy and rich, but not overwhelming as to overcome all other flavours of ingredients in the bowl. It will be served to you in a black pot, steaming hot. As soon as you sip, that heavenly feeling of goodness goes inside of you. This particular dish is quite hearty and a meal on its own. 128076

128077 Fried Rice - it's simply a fried rice, not even a special korean fried rice but it's still very good. Not oily at all. The bits of chives, and meat, and egg are perfectly cooked together. Very tasty.

128076 Beef Bulgogi - I don't have much interest in sweet dishes, but this one is quite nice. The beef seared in sweet sauce is very tender, no litid at all, topped with chopped leeks which balances and refreshes your palate.

128076128076128076 Kimchis and other Appetizers - I've been to a number of korean restos already and most of them are highly-rated, but it just doesn't cut it on the level that I'm looking for. Silla's group of appetizers is my peg. Nothing has ever bumped this off of my number 1 as of yet. Per usual, they gave me a generous serving of fresh kimchi, radish kimchi, candied anchovies, sayote tops, candied peanuts with sesame seeds, sauteed bean sprouts, sweetened baby potatoes, and the fried squash which i call squash tikoy because the veggie is wrapped inside a batter/breading with a slight texture of mochi. 128522

Their appetizers change depending on what's available but as far as i can remember, the mainstays are the kimchi, the potatoes, anchovies, and peanuts. And those are what I totally love! And since the owner is very nice, she allowed me to have 3 plates of kimchi and another batch of appetizers for Free! I'm not sure if it's because of my good looks 128526 or just because she thought I look #pataygutom and she pitied me. 128540

What can I do? I'm totally head-over-heels inlove with her kimchi!

I talked to her and thanked her for giving me such great food, and I told her that Even if I've tried eating at other places, I keep on coming back to her because of her appetizers. She asked what makes her food different from the others, I told her I'm not sure but her food always tastes fresh everytime I go most especially the kimchi, it has no strong odor and taste which I usually encounter with other places and you'll know that it's fresh because when you bite into it, you'll get that slightly crunchy-crisp of a fresh veggie and all the while getting that full-flavour absorption. And she goes (with a cute accent and a hello kitty smile), "Ah, yes! I always tell my staff to make sure the kimchi's fresh because Filipinos like their food fresh!" 128522

Bless you, Tita.

I ended my fiesta-in-the-tummy meal with a red bean ice cream, you know... The fish-shaped cold dessert. Good. That one. But melona is still number 1 for me 128077

I think the thing that would make or break a korean restaurant is their kimchi. And with Silla, they're definitely proudly-seated with their freshly-made kimchi,on the number spot in my korean list.128077128076128076

This used to be las paellas, a spanish resto. Closed down and made into a korean resto. So far the menu has no style at all they need a bunch of improvements. Some of the food is heavily sauced. The ambiance still looks like a spanish resto. Servings quite small for the price. The only thing is, its much nearer than libis or kamuning from my area so i decided to try. Not that disappointed but might not come back unless improved.
