[2019-05-22] Daraejung Korean Kitchen BGC
I experienced some difficulty trying to find Daraejung. There were not much signage nor security guards in the vicinity that could help locate it.
The first time a saw a signage was at the small entrance to the second floor on one side of the Fort Strip where they are located.
Once inside you’ll see that the setup here affords a little more privacy compared to others due to the cubicle-like setup of the tables in the dining area.
The restaurant has minimal decorations but if you are like me, once the minimum standards of cleanliness and order is satisfied, the concern is more for the taste and quality of the food.
Our hosts told us that what we will be trying out is a set made for Filipinos/locals. By the way, this Korean BBQ restaurant is not an eat-all-you-can setup. You order per item but they also have sets like what we are about to try.
This set, labeled “Set B” on the menu, includes beef loin, boneless ribs, LA style Beef Ribs and Marinated Beef Ribs.
It certainly looks good and fresh.
Aside from these meats, side dishes are provided as usual but these side dishes includes some items that are quite good and not normally found/served as side dishes in other Korean barbeque places I have tried.
My top favorite would be the sausages 🙂 The side dishes are unlimited if I remember correctly. For those who enjoy very spicy foods, some of the side dishes are quite spicy that if you are not careful, they can make your eyes water, haha.
Just like with any other restaurant that involves cooking, however good the ingredients are, if not cooked properly, the results may not be as good as it can possibly can. So better have the experts do the cooking for you 🙂
Our hosts gave us additional items aside from those included in the “Set B”. It includes these tasty “ice cream” from the Korean grocery store downstairs 🙂
It was a good meal provided by a good host eaten with good company and capped by a good dessert (albeit from the grocery store downstairs). It was a good day 🙂
