Bulgogi Brothers: Experience the Best of Korean Cuisine


Last Sunday, August 26, WhenInManila soulmate Erika Ochosa and I, headed over to the newly-opened Bulgogi Brothers branch in SM Mall of Asia. The warm and relaxing ambiance, accompanied by some of the friendliest staff I have ever encountered, makes it an ideal place to bring family, friends, and even dates over.

The complimentary appetizer was the first thing that was served, consisting of sweet potato, corn and quail eggs. We were also given Kimchi and salad, containing just the right amount of spice. One of their best-selling appetizers is the Haemul Gungjung Mandu (P450)—fried dumplings with mussels, shrimp and squid served with spicy sauce. Erika ordered the Dubu Steak (P245)—fried crispy tofu with teriyaki sauce and bean sprout. Be sure to leave enough room for their barbecue though, because these are perfectly seasoned delicacies that will surely fulfill that hungry belly.

I ordered the recommended Seoul Style Bulgogi (P595) for my main course—sliced beef with vegetables, mixed in a bulgogi broth made of fruits, onions and soy sauce. I liked how the flavors of the soup accentuated the zest and tenderness of the beef. I was able to try the Unyang Style Bulgogi (P595) as well, a famous royal cuisine cut in juicy heart-shaped slices.

Before leaving, don’t forget to grab yourself some Korean ice cream! Erika and I both share the same favorite—the fish with red bean. All in all, coming from someone who’s quite picky when it comes to Korean food, I definitely enjoyed my experience in Bulgogi Brothers.
