The best korean resto that I've tried so far. Appetizer serving was enormous and good while the grilled choices was delish. I had beef, pork, and chicken and it was grilled by the staff in front of me. No need to go to those buffet korean resto if you ask me.

Ye Dang has always been our go-to place when craving for some legit Korean dishes. It's always a feast that begins with the appetizers that they serve—baby potatoes with glaze, spicy fish cake, kimchi, glazed peanuts and polonchay.

Our usual order would be the Korean beef and Pork Belly that you wrap inside a lettuce leaf together with some sesame oil and pepper. The meat they serve is always so tasty and lean.

Aside from the meat, you can never go wrong with their Bibimbap. Servings are good for sharing and you have the choice to keep it mild or make it spicy.

No need to worry about the budget because you get all that at a very affordable price!

Ye dang has always been a family favorite when it comes to Korean food 128523 We like that the Korean owners are always around to help us with what to order, plus of course the various appetizers that they serve for free 128514 refillable too 128077🏼 (1 round)

Every Mother's Day, I treat my sister & nephew for lunch and this was her choice this year...128105128105128102Here's what we ordered :

🇰🇷 Samgyupsal (grilled pork belly) @300/150g & Usamgyup (grilled beef belly @400/150g is always a must order for us! So good with the lettuce and the sauce.

🇰🇷 Japchae @350 - also a must order if you like Korean glass noodles.

🇰🇷 Tteokbokki @350 - first time to try this stir fried rice cake .. A word of caution... This is super spicy 128293 We couldn't finish it 128517

🇰🇷 Sogogi Yukhoe @600 - Korean style raw beef (sashimi) topped with an egg and pears on the side.. This is my favorite dish, I think their version is better than the ones I tried in Korea, and cheaper too 128525

🇰🇷 Soondubu Chigae @300 - Spicy hot tofu soup 128076🏼

Make sure you have an extra shirt if you have somewhere else to go to since you'll end up smelling like a walking BBQ stick after your meal 128517 Budget of about 600-700/person, a little steep but the food is well worth the price IMO.

This is a typical Korean restaurant that served a lot of Korean side dishes, notably the sweet soy peanuts. My friends always choose this place whenever they miss Korean food, and that's a good sign that what you are getting here is authentic. 🇰🇷

The Korean Side dish filled our tummies quickly as we grabbed to taste the sweetened potatoes, kimchi lettuce, kimchi radish, fish cakes, potato cakes, spinach and dilis.

Their meat is cooked over real charcoal (not on one of those electric grills), so the flavour really seeps in. Everything they serve is of good quality and the price is very reasonable.

The ambiance and interiors are all made of heavy wood, there's minimal decoration, and walls were lined with bamboo sticks patterned like tiles.

Service is great too! Staff are efficient, helpful and nice.The owner is very visible and hands on too.

Parking is limited to like 4 slots so either park at Metro Walk then walk going there. It is advisable to come early because restaurant is always full, specially on weekends.

One thing you should expect from dining in Korean restaurants is you're going end up smelling like oil, coal and barbecued meats. 128513128513128513

Since these things are already expected from these types of restaurants, the only thing one can really comment on is food and service.

Ye Dang is priced similar to other Korean restaurants in the Pasig area. They serve what most Korean owned Korean restaurants do. It used to be our boss favorite Korean restaurants..128514128514128514

Food is great and service is good!!!This is a Must try!!! #50kSummerGiveaway

For some weird reason, I remember Ye Dang to be on the second floor of a building across the Union Bank head office. Thus it was a surprise to me when I saw it beside Metrowalk. What surprised me even more is when my balikbayan friend N wanted to eat there instead of a Filipino restaurant. Oh well.

Annyeong haseyo, Ye Dang!

It took us a bit longer to go to this rather popular Korean restaurant because of rush hour. Luckily, the place was not crowded at all and we managed to get seats right away.

As first time diners, it took us good 5 or so minutes to decide what to order. Finally, we decided to order Tteokbokki (PHP300), Kalbichim (PHP300), Dak-Gui (PHP300), and Bulgogi (I forgot to take note of how much this one costs but I’m assuming it’s around PHP300 as well). Take note that it was just 2 people who will eat all these food. I guess N was disappointed that it was not eat all you can thus he ordered a bit more.

The side dishes arrived first and to avoid committing the same mistake every time, I did not eat much of it (plus I already ate so much earlier that day because of an event). The side dishes were your typical Korean fillers. It was good but not spectacular.

Next served was the “already grilled" Dak-Gui (grilled chicken). The server explained to us that since there were only few customers around, they decided to cook it for us. (I think they just ruined the Korean restaurant experience that most diners want.) We noticed though that if you are more than 2, they open the grill on the table. Hmmm.

Anyway, the Dak-Gui was tender and rather sweet. It was something that I’d want to eat with rice. For some reason though, it reminded me of chicken teriyaki because of the sesame seeds. Nonetheless, it was one good dish.

The Kalbichim was also very tender and savory. Cutting it was effortless and it was not the oily short ribs stew I do not like. The sweet sauce was also delightful and I just can’t help pour it on my rice.

Bulgogi has always been one of my top 5 favorite Korean dishes and I have tried a lot of versions already and I’d say my favorite is from the restaurant called the Good Restaurant near Dongguk University in Seoul, Korea. I love slurping the sweet soup and munching on the thin strips of beef. *bliss* [I fancy Korean food but I’m the type who doesn’t like to grill my own food (and I’m sure my friends know that as they do the grilling for me). Thus I always order bulgogi and chap chae as these are served cooked and ready to be munched!]

But to my surprise, Ye Dang’s version was served on a sizzling plate… soup-less. Odd.

I gave it the benefit of the doubt and tried it. It was still the soft and thin meat cuts that I love. The glass noodles were still the oh-so-good to chew type. But, I still want my soup. (If you read my previous blogs, I usually order soup. I just love soup!)

As for the tteokbokki (spicy rice cakes), it looked pretty mild as it was more orange than red. I managed to eat a few of it but it was still a bit too spicy for me. It was also my first time to eat it with boiled egg and without soju or makgeolli.

To wrap up our dinner, we got free slice of pineapple. Since N doesn’t eat any fruit except mangoes, I finished the whole slice. It was one sweet pineapple. (I wonder where they bought it.)

Overall though, I’d still go back to order more of that Kalbichim (as I just fell in love with how tender it was) and try Ye Dang’s samgyeopsal.

I have been craving Korean food for 2 weeks already so when my parents invited me for lunch, I asked them if we can go to Ye Dang in Metrowalk. It was our first time there since this Korean restaurant in Kalayaan Ave. has been our go-to Korean place.

We ordered galbijim (beef stew), samgyupsal (pork belly), beef strips, and japchae. While waiting for our order, they brought in a lot of ban-chan (side dishes). Sadly, they didn't have the dried anchovy so I ate a lot of the sweet baby potatoes instead. Service was really fast and our orders came in quickly.

Their japchae was a bit sticky than the usual but was still good and tasty. The samgyupsal and beef strips were cooked right in front of us. They were very flavorful too. My favorite would be their galbijim. It has the perfect combination of sweet and salty, plus the beef ribs were so tender. I've been refraining from eating rice lately but the beef stew made me finish a bowl of rice. S A R A P! 🇰🇷

Wouda been just OK had that little roach didn't make it on our table. Buti my eldest spotted the gross thing immediately. It didn't touch any of the foods...which is good but still not good. 128546

Appetizers were good (kasi madami naman and free, of course) BUT the main dishes were pricey af. Shouda, wouda, couda have chosen Makchang instead!! Oh snap!

Wait staff were attentive and polite. Not keen on water refills tho.

Price averages to 350Php for 150g of meat (let's say, pork slices) and that serves only one person. Mahalia. Not to sound ignorant and mejo mayabang, but I've eaten at several K restos before like Bulgogi Bros, Maru, Lee Hak, Makchang, Seoul Garden, etc. and this joint's pricing point was not sulit, imho.

They don't serve hot tea for free and if you want kimchi refill, you'd have to pay after the first serving.

Okay, I'm sounding like a tad cheapskate now (but really, i am #teamfrugal) but the little ipis, mind you!!!

Just visited Korea 2 months ago, and boy I missed their food. If you're craving for authentic korean bbq, this is the place to be... This joint almost captures what they have in Korea!

Some koreans say it is much better than some restos in Korea, I disagree though. But its close. Budget - 500/person

The plan was going to the fort to have dinner but unfortunately it's heavy traffic anywhere. So changed of plan since we're in metrowalk we decided to eat Korean food and try this ye dang restaurant.

The place is dimmed, look old and smell old like rotten wood or something. It's stinks in here. Really... I asked my friends to skip this one and find other restaurant instead, since I know other Korean restaurant inside metrowalk that has same price and menu. We voted and I'm out by three... My friends are on a budget so we continue here... The food was ok delicious as usual, the stuffs are attentive the price is even. The problem is the smell. But you will get use to it plus unlimited lettuce and perilla leaves for samgyeopsal! Just don't like the smell! 128532

Another Korean restaurant that I've tried. I go crazy over their free appetizers, and sometimes the free dessert, normally pineapple or melona. If the owner is Korean it must be good and authentic. They all taste the same, but I still love their cuisine.

My hubby brought us to this place. We were there at 6pm and a lot of people were alreay dining in.
Usual greeting of annyeonghaseyo will be heard from the staff upon your entry to the restaurant.
First thing I noticed was the exhaust hanging from the ceiling. It was like I stepped into a Korean tele novela.
Their food was reasonable as they had a lot of side dishes. Side dishes are refillable up to second servings only. Beef was really tender and the waiter cooked our pork belly.
Would love to go back to this place. 128522

Everytime are HK bosses visits us they always visit Ye Dang for a team Dinner. A bit pricy but good food. Unlimited sides which are really good.
Tender and Juicy meats and for the first time we tried Yuk Hoe. A seasoned Raw beef with radish and turnip topped with raw egg. At first we are hesitant to eat it since it is raw. We mixed it all together and decided to gave it a try. And it was surprisingly Good. Its like a Korean beef bbq. Also as per our bosses it brings goodluck since it binds all together. Definitely a must try.
