-Malate, Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines-
Try Every Korean Restaurant in Ermita and Malate (30) (see all posts on 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.
Chimaek is a Korea pub/restaurant. Specializes in chimaek: fried CHIcken + MAEKju (beer).
The chicken was pretty good. The skin was a bit too hard/crusty for my taste (at some Korean chicken joints these days, I’ve been noticing that the skin – through some newfangled process/additive – comes out unnaturally hard/crusty, nearly to the point of being breakable). But otherwise okay.

Try Every Korean Restaurant in Ermita and Malate (31) (see all posts on TEKREM)
This post covers two restaurants, same dish, different dates. I will do this more often to accelerate the completion of TEKREM.
Moiza is a Korean pub/restaurant. Specializes in variations of fried chicken. The name of the place means “let’s get together.”
The chicken was pretty good. Lightly battered, crispy, nicely seasoned, tasty. Marginally the best Korean-style fried chicken that I’ve had in Manila thus far.
