SPOTTED: Pay as much as Php 1 for Korean food in Dumaguete

Some of the best things in life are almost free .. but if it’s food, we’ll take it!

Facebook user Kara Martinez Dumasis took to her account how she came across a small Korean food stall in Rizal Boulevard, Dumaguete that promoted a good cause.

“How far can Php 1 take you?” her post reads.  Dumasis urges that the kimbap “tastes good” and hopes people go and try it out.

WHEN IN MANILA has reached out to her for further details.

They are [actually] a group.  My sister and I are fans of Korean food. When we saw the stall, specifically the signboard (when translated, any amount of pay would do), we found it touching and amazing at the same time. We got the kimbap Php 50. We believe it was somehow a charity work on their part.

Dumasis also mentioned that the food vendor handed out a flyer.

Rough translation:

“Hello! We are “Banana Flower Has Bloomed” which came from the natural resources you can see in Valencia. Here in the Philippines, you can see banana flowers that bloom and you can see bananas anywhere, any time of the year. We have a food truck that is open to everyone. You can dine with us at our food truck with whatever money you have in your pocket.

Everyone needs to eat, be it the poor or the rich. Even though I want everyone to be in the same state, that may never happen. The reason we want to start this project is for us to give the opportunity to everyone – to be able to eat so as to bring happiness through food.

We will be able to give you more food if you pay us a good amount!

Dumasis closes that she recently got hooked to Korean Drama shows but loved Korean food before hand. “Kapag nanonood ako ng KDrama, napapacrave ka sa Korean food. Timing talaga that the stall was there,” she laughs.

(Rough translation: When I watch KDrama, I tend to crave for Korean food as well. It was good timing that the stall was there.)
