Try Every Korean Restaurant in Ermita and Malate (3) (see also TEKREM)
Surveying all the Korean eateries, including those serving Korean-Chinese fare, located in the neighborhoods of Ermita and Malate, nearby work and home. Minimum of 1 dish per place. Currently 45 establishments. Though anticipating that most of the places will be mediocre, I look forward to exploring more of my environment.
Neoguri is a Korean pub. No meals per se, mostly items that Koreans would typically eat with alcohol (i.e., anju).
The food was mostly meh, except for the pa dak. Unlike typical renditions, in which the sauce makes the chicken go soggy after awhile, the difference here was that the chicken was preseasoned, no sauce, no sogginess. Good stuff.
