Try Every Korean Restaurant in Ermita and Malate (25) (see all posts TEKREM)
Surveying 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.
Café Chosun is a Korean restaurant. Brand-spanking new, the first one to open since TEKREM was launched. Specializes in Korean BBQ.
A nice experience overall. While the meat was okay, if unremarkable, the extras made up for it: mushrooms, onion, tofu, unlimited bean sprouts, even the little sausages, not necessarily in flavor but at least in fun, particularly for novices to this kind of eating. The sides were relatively diverse and dynamic. And the large griddle allowed for cooking everything at once, requiring less fuss. Service was quick, efficient, and helpful. So far, this is the place to beat where BBQ is concerned.
