Korean and Italian fusion. Now that sounds like a winner to me right off the bat!

The menu's pretty simple. You have 3 kinds of large skillet dishes to choose from:
1.) Steak and salad
2.) Pasta
3.) Rice Pilaf

And for each kind of dish you have about 3-4 choices on what kind of meat, pasta, rice you'll be having. All for P699. And all orders are meant for sharing between at least 2 people. Expect. Big. Servings.

Got to try the pork and chicken steak salads were both very tasty! You could really taste their marinade permeate the meat. And you know that Koreans know how to bbq and grill their meat really well, so this was no exception.

The pasta had its own unique character, typical Italian pasta but slightly tweaked and suited for the Korean palate. Much like what we do with our sweet Pinoy spaghetti with hotdog haha. Their spaghetti was quite garlic-y and came with shrimp, squid, and clams. Parang jjamppong talaga na pinag-spaghetti 128514. The carbonara had that garlic cream sauce, but not the 'malapot' type of white sauce that Pinoys use. It was made even better after mixing in the sunny side up egg!

And to top it off, we had the kimchi rice that was like a cross between a rice pilaf and kimchi fried rice. The main difference being it not as spicy as full blown kimchi rice, and not as moist/oily either.

My regards to the cook, Honglee Park, for bringing something new to Manila and doing it well. 128076

To be honest, the moment I saw a photo at The Cook by Hongleepark it just came to my senses to try it out. The theme of this place is a korean italian fusion which works perfectly.

The menu is separated into 3 categories; salad, spaghetti and pilaf. All of those 3 categories have at least 3 sub categories and all are priced at Php 699. So, what we had is the Pork Steak Salad. And goodness gracious, since when did the salad became like this gorgeous plate? Big serving of grilled steak with lettuce, french fries, pineapple, corn, and egg with homemade garlic dressing. The pork steak is so good. Perfectly grilled and seasoned. I believe it's medium well so it has all the juice once sliced. You will actually forgot it's a salad to be honest but the dressing is also a good match for it. You can actually order a single served rice and there you have it. A balance meal at a cheap stake. We also ordered the Shrimp Pilaf which is a big serving of paella like rice with shrimps and big chunks of grilled green bell peppers and onions. They use japanaese rice I think cause it's sticky and very flavorful. Then, we also tried the Seafood Spaghetti with clams, squid and shrimps in rich marinara sauce. I like that it has big tomato chunks cause I like my spaghetti that way. Seasoned just right with generous serving of seafoods.

The real reason we tried each is because the menu says it's good for two. But when the orders came, one serving is good for 3-4 person. I didn't realize that Korean-Italian fusion could work but they did. There were a few people when we dined so it's a good place for that evening chill. They do serve beers and unique blends of tea as well. For big groups who's really hungry, you have to try this place.
