Been craving for Korean food and since I was home early one humid afternoon, I decided to drop by Soban.

I was originally looking for beef bone soup and I checked another app for their menu but sadly, the only soup they had was ramen. I mean, what?? Misleading menus are 128078🏼

Anyway so I decided to give the Ultimate Pork Bap (PHP230) a try. It was okay since the stone pot (am I saying it right?) kept the bibimbap warm and the veggies were light and well seasoned. I just didn't get the pork since the texture was a combination of Tapa and Tocino (?) so it was very confnusing. Their kimchi was fresh and well fermented (not too spicy tho) while the complimentary soup was a bit cold.

Service was a 128077🏼128077🏼

Accommodating staff. Ordered Ultimate Pork Bap (Php230) huge serving not bad for the price. Make sure to mix everything to have all of the ingredients in one bite. It also includes sides and soup.

After meeting FG, my Homie Reich and I decided to have dinner since we're both hAngry. 128528128566 She suggested w eat here and I agreed since I haven't tried Soban yet.

Reich had a bibimbap w chicken something rice bowl while I tried the K-TACO (75php/each). You get to choose from 3 different options - Pork, Spicy Chicken, and Beef Bulgogi.

K-TACO = Soft Tortilla + Lettuce + Sour Cream + Cheese + Kimchi + Meat.

I tried the SPICY CHICKEN and their "bestseller", BEEF BULGOGI. It was good! I was surprised w how good all the flavors and elements worked together and w the generous amount of fresh shredded lettuce, sour cream and cheese added (though I just wish they added more kimchi for a spicier flavor). I liked the chicken more than the beef because it's spicy and because the beef was not as tender plus there were more fats than the actual beef. 128533 But still, the overall taste was good and I liked it. Taco goodness w a Korean twist. 128077🏼

SERVICE wasn't that great, though. A bit inconsistent? Right before entering the place, servers outside were very warm and friendly. Very welcoming and lively. But once we're inside and eating already, service wasn't that "good" anymore. Kind of slow. I drink water a lot so I usually ask for refills. Waiting's fine wag lang super tagal or makalimutan na. 128542 I even saw our server na sumimangot when I called her for water refill (again for the nth time). Yun lang naman. 128533

After my volleyball "semi final game" I went to Soban K-Town Grill at Eastwood Mall. This was my third time and the place was jam-packed maybe because it's Sunday. I got Dak Bulgogi Set for Php320.00 and Beef Korrito for Php180.00.

Dak Bulgogi Set served with unlimited rice, salad, soup, kimchi, and egg roll - 1108811088110881108811088️ 5/5
"One of the best fried chicken I've ever tasted. The "medyo" sweet flavor of this fried chicken compliments with the appetizers on the side."

Beef Bulgogi Korrito (Burrito made with fresh lettuce, kimchi, sour cream cheese, kimchi fried rice and beef bulgogi served on flour tortilla) - 1108811088110881108811088️ 5/5
"The Mexican & Korean fusion burrito is a bombed! Gosh! The flavors blend with each other. Warning: it's a little bit spicy."

Although the place was in full house mode they still provided the superb service.

This place is actually improving! Their soup is more flavourful, they have more banchan, and the beef is of better quality. Nice casual place for korean food.

This is my second time to visit SOBAN K-TOWN GRILL at Eastwood Mall but it never fails to satisfy me in their delicious Korean dishes with a twist.

I tried the K-Tacos with Beef Bulgogi as the main meat served in a soft taco, fresh lettuce, kimchi, sour cream, cheese and kimchi fried rice. A good combination indeed, imagine your favorite Mexican taco infused with Korean flavors. Yes, it is spicy but bearable and I'll promise you... You will love this taco. 🌮

Coffee Prince, reminding me a Koreanovela dubbed in local TV but not in SOBAN K-TOWN GRILL... it's a dessert. I got one order of Coffee Prince, home-made coffee ice cream served with graham and Korean red beans topped with chocolate. The dessert I ordered was one of the bestsellers of the Korean resto and I really like their presentation on how they served it to me. 127846

K-Taco (Php75.00 per piece) - 1108811088110881108811088️ 5/5

Coffee Prince (Php120.00) - 11088110881108811088️ 4/5

Credits to the attentive staff for assisting me. Maintain your good service.

You can visit SOBAN K-TOWN GRILL at the 2nd Floor, Eastwood Mall, Quezon City.

I saw a couple of episodes of this cooking show in TLC where a Brit with a fabulous bob in her Twiggy outfit explores various Korean dishes.  She then attempts to replicate some of the dishes with a lil England twist.   This sparked my interest in Korean Food.  Sadly,  my knowledge begins and ends with Bibimbap.  This cuisine is like Magical Realism for me - uncharted territory.  Yes,  i am more of a Classic Lit x Post Modern x Secular x Poetry x Mystery x Thriller book nerd. 

I was in Eastwood one rainy evening.  Can't figure out where to have dinner,  it was a toss between Peri Peri and Soban.  CMA flipped a coin,  i called heads.   Mr.  Dent was rooting for me.  It's Soban K-Town Grill for dinner then.

Soban screams modern.  And the lighting is perfect,  less effort when taking photos.  There are a couple of communal tables,  i guess this is the newest trend in the restaurant scene.

On to the food.  We ordered the following:

| Kimchi Fries.  I like potatoes but never kimchi.  I was a lil dubious of this fusion dish but I was proven wrong.  Kimchi aint that bad after all,  just add potatoes and we're all set.  Seriously,  this is good as the kimchi adds an interesting contrast of flavor.  Do not forget ze bacon bits!!! 

| Chicken Karilog.  A classic silog dish with a Korean twist.   The plate is so bright and looks mighty appetizing.  CMA gave his nod of approval.  He said that the chicken is flavorful and goes well with the kimchi fried rice.

| Chicken Teriyaki Bap.   Chicken night!  This is bibimbap with korean style fried chicken, some veggies on the side and a sunny side up egg.   One of ze best bibimbaps that I've had (not that I've eaten a lot).   The star of the show is the chicken!  Crispy on the outside and juicy in the inside.  Mix em well and a boatload of sauce (dunno what it's called,  bright red hue with some sesame seeds).  Not enough enough heat for ze Dragon Lady though. 

| Soju.   First time to try Korean Liquor.  Man,  Soju zapped me out of oblivion.  This is not for the faint-hearted (this coming from the retired party girl).  Stay away from the original variant.  Roy T said the flavored ones are fun to drink and not that strong.

Dinner was fantastic.  Food is good and it will not put a dent in your pocket.   I'll come back for more Soju!

So saw Anch B Review and craving for Korean food, and decided to we to go to Eastwood and try Soban, they not taking reservation for Sunday, so we just walk in and need to wait for 1 hour.

Finally, time to order, so ordered,
1. Woo samgyup set - beef set with additional dakgalbi - chicken (spicy flavour)
2. Japchae - stir fried korean vermicille
3. Kimchi french fries

I really love this place, the food, really made me reminisance my past time when i ate Korean food atsingapore.

The samgyup really authentic of korean sauces,
The Japchae , not too soft, not too hard, the chewie-ness is perfect,
The kimchi fries, a lil bit too hard but really KIMCHI fries, they stirfry the fries again with kimchi sauces...

It's authentic & awesome with freeflow appetizers, rice & soup, the meal only cost me around 1,000 for 2 pax and made us so full! But well of course, still have room for dessert,

Because it's my birthday month, they give free a scoop of ice cream & it's homemade ice-cream gentleman & ladies...
The taste, texture if icecream soooooo perfect!! (It's vanilla flavor but not the usual vanilla you could get it on other place)

Worth your money & time folks, go try!!

First time to try a resto like Soban, and i really really enjoyed it! Special thanks to Yanna B for the birthday treat! 127801

We had 2 orders of their 6-flavor Samgyupsal Set which consists of A grilled pork belly set of all their different flavors, served with a maximum of 4 refillable rice, salad, soup and egg roll appetizers. (+ 15php if you want to upgrade your rice to kimchi fried rice... w/c is what we did) Everything is delicious! It came to a point where i didn't think i could eat more but i did anyway because it's so good!

Also tried their Kimchi Fries, which i love love loooooooved!!! I'm surprised that i liked this though cause i am not a fan of Kimchi, but damn it Soban changed that.

Overall, i enjoyed my visit!
Service was fast too so that's a +

Kailangan prepared kayo after though cos, this place will make your clothes and hair smell like food after! But oh well 128129🏻10024

I rarely made a visit to any Korean restaurants nowadays, though I have to say that I really like their food so much. I could still recall the first time I tried Korean food back in my college days when my dad took me to one of the stalls in Greenhills serving Korean food. I can barely recall the name and everything we had back then, but I know it had bulgogi and japchae. I admit that I really liked it (especially the bulgogi) and I wish to have more if it. And then there's Kaya that has been our family's go-to place whenever we want some Korean food.

And nowadays, you can have more options because more Korean restaurants are popping out everywhere. One of the newest Korean restaurants that you wouldn't wanna miss is Soban. Located at the 2nd level of Eastwood Mall, Soban is a Korean grill place serving Samgyupsal and Dak Galbi sets and other various dishes with influences from different cuisines. And just few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be invited together with other loolooers to try their food for a sponsored eatup!!! Yaaaayyyy!!!

Patrick V and I arrived really late because we underestimated the traffic in C5 during weekends. Haay! So we only had few of the dishes they've already tried. But it's okay, their Green Iced tea was so refreshing that I almost forgot how tiring it is to face the heavy traffic in the city everyday. A perfect thirst-quencher - that's how I'd call it! Getting a bottomless Green Iced Tea is definitely the best decision... Ever!

The place has a minimal and industrial look which is perfect for the concept of the restaurant. Well-lit and has a bright atmosphere although it wasn't that really spacious and could only accommodate around 40 people inside.

Some of the dishes we had are:

K-Taco - A big soft taco with kimchi, lettuce, cheese, sour cream and K-BBQ meat. This is their own take of the famous Mexican dish and I reaaally liked it! Generous toppings on a large-sized tortilla for only Php 75,00 each!!!

Kimchi Fries - Soban's version is not the usual fries that's just deep-fried and then served with ketchup. It was smothered with cheese and then mixed it up with pork bits and kimchi that'll surely make you wonder that kimchi is actually good. Thus, making it one of the crowd's favorites!

Japchae - I call this as the silky noodles. I have mixed feelings about this ever since so I'm not really into it.

Samgyupsal set - I only had few of this because Imma part of the "Late Troupers"! This comes in 6 flavors and price depends on the quantity which I believe is truly affordable for its price!!! Gotta love the tenderness of the meat that comes with different choice of sauce!

Dak Galbi set - Another meat set that has been the instant favorite of this man reviewing! Oh my, Chicken!!! I got to have lots of this because you know, it's chicken!!! Gotta love the spicy and doenjang flavors soo much!!! This one's a good set perfect for sharing!

Caramelized Galbi - Caramelized chicken fillet that's double fry 'till perfectly crispy and juicy! I sooo love this! This is probably the highlight for me! 128020128020128020128539128539128539

Sides or Banchan - We all know that Koreans are very much into details when it comes to food. Aside from the main dishes, they always make sure that a number of side dishes are present on the table to "tag along" with their food. Most of us would expect kimchi as the main side dish, but there's more than that, and I'm telling you that you should also go for it. There's the bone marrow soup that's really tasty; the egg roll that somewhat reminds me of tamago; kimchi rice that was more than perfect to pair up with your meat; and a lot more actually. I couldn't recall everything at their exact names but they're all good!

Afterwards, they served us one of their sweet offerings.. The Coffee Prince!!! I wonder if they followed the name of the popular Korean skit for this sweet creation, but anyway, this one's good and a must-try! Layers of graham and Korean red beans topped with their homemade coffee ice cream is just glorious!!! The six of us on the table immediately finished this in a blink of an eye but they're generous enough to serve us one more for another round! Yaaay!!!

Overall a good experience, thus, making me wanna go back again very soon! I wanna give a kudos to their attentive and well-trained servers who were all familiar and knowledgable with the details of the food they're serving!

Special thanks to the beautiful ladies of Soban - to Dotz and the sisters (aka 3D), and the entire Soban Team! Two thumbs up for the great yet affordable food and excellent service! And of course, big thanks to Peanut D for having us invited to try out this new place!!!

Having a quick lunch at Soban K-Town Grill. I got Beef Bulgogi Bap (Beef Bulgogi mixed rice with assorted vegetables and fried egg in a sizzling bowl) for only Php155.00 and it comes with soup and sauce. Very affordable right? By the way, it's YUMMY! 127836127834

Tried the place on its first week of opening in eastwood and surprisingly it is packed on weekdays. So the idea is to order meat choices in grams and you get the refillable rice and soup with the great appetizer choices.

Tried the 6 flavor samgyupsal set and the dak galbi set. The 6 flavor samgyupsal is already good for 4 persons with refillable rice for 4. Overall i like the grilled sets since it has various flavors. The place also has complete set of utensils since you would to cut the huge pieces of meat.

Overall it feels like premium korean grill at a reasonable price. The service is still slow during that time maybe because they are on soft opening.

Sponsored Eatup! Courtesy of looloo and Soban!

First-off I would like to recommend getting the Bottomless Green Iced Tea. It has hints of mint and is very refreshing! Quite similar to a Mojito but with no alcohol. Perfect for the Grilled Meats and mildly spicy food ahead. 128077

I came in late as usual but I still got to sample the "Kimchi Fries" albeit a bit cold already. Still good. It ain't really spicy like the name would suggest or maybe it's the starch in the fries that balances out the spiciness of the kimchi. Either way it's a good appetizer to start you off.

✔️ K-Taco - P75/pc - Crowd Favorite! Who knew Kimchi, Sour Cream and Cheese would play a lovely melody of flavors and texture. Excellent choice in using Soft Taco too. 128077

✔️ Japchae - P195 - Not too sweet and quite firm. Exactly how Japchae should be.

✔️ Samgyupsal Set - Their sets has 3 different serving sizes and comes with a multitude of refillable side dishes. Tried their ✔️Dak Galbi, I found it satisfactory. It's Chicken. How could anyone go wrong? 128513

What stood out for me was the ✔️ Chili Bean Samgyupsal. It was supposed to be spicy according to the menu. But again, I guess they toned it down to fit the normal people tolerance because it was quite tolerable for me. The Pork Belly was really tender and is packed with flavors. Perfect with that lettuce wrap!

✔️Coffee Prince - P120 - Great Presentation! The Home-made Coffee Ice Cream is the perfect dessert to cleanse your palate from all the meat and spice.

Also, a big shout out for their unlimited Beef Bone Soup (part of the side dish)! Looks very simple but really very savory! I lost count at how many times I had my refill! 128525

Which brings me to applaud the staff for their prompt service and attentiveness to detail. I didn't even have to call their attention for refills of the side dishes and drinks. I only had to ask to refill my soup once and the server already understood that I was hooked on their soup and kept refilling automatically. Good Job! 128522

Great food, Great Service. Overall, a Great experience! 128077

Many thanks Soban and looloo for the fun-filled afternoon with the kaladkarins! 128536 I don't even have to tag you guys, for sure you all got reco points from me on this one 128514

We had our team building here today. The food was ok. Nothing special or fancy about it. I don't know but I think K-Pub in BGC somehow sets the bar high on Korean grill restaurants for me. The service was fine. They're very attentive on your orders and what was still left in their kitchen. Friendly and all-smiling staff too! The grills and exhausts are excellent. Clean and tidy.

My only gripe is the table size. It's very small considering you also have a grill on it to cook on to.

Korean cooking meets Western and Mexican street food at Soban in Eastwood. This new restaurant in Eastwood prefers to be hip over traditional and promises to provide quality yet affordable food that prides in their unique dishes like the K-Tacos (Korean tacos), Kimchi Fries,Korilog (Korean tapsilog), and the Korrito (Korean burrito). Expect a casual atmosphere with fast and good customer service. 128522128077128077

Kimchi French Fries
I’m wondering if the contrasting spicy and sour flavors of kimchi will complement the cheese; surprisingly, it does. I love how the kimchi balances the flavor of the cheese and for me adding Nori strips will give a crispy texture and will certainly add flavor. Overall, I love it 128522

K Taco
Korean meat meets Mexican favoriteJJJ, the Bulgogi seasoned beef elevates the overall flavor of this dish. 128536

 USDA Premium Beef
Yay! 128076128076The best seller in our table; the beef marinated in sea salt is so flavorful and tender. One can opt to dip in sesame oil for additional flavor.

 Samgyupsal
This comes in 6 flavors, namely: original, fruity, chili bean, soy garlic, Doenjang and wine depending on one’s liking. It can be ordered in a set or in 90, 120, 180 grams serving that comes with unlimited sides. All are flavorful but I like the chili bean and the fruity flavor the most. 128522

Caramelized Galbi
I love the crispiness and the crunchiness of the double fried chicken and I will love it even more if it is not too sweet.

Korean food = grilled meat, hot stews, chilies and pickles
Korean food = happy tummy
Korean quality food equals Soban KTown Grill 128077128077

This is my second looloo invitation, thank you! 1285229786128522

A cheaper alternative to Sariwon. And since I am a Sariwon fanatic, I just had to try this. And it was great! I wished there were more side dishes, but hey, I get that it is cheaper. The meats were good.
