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.

Brothers is a Korean pub cum karaoke bar (private rooms off to the side).

Located on the 2nd floor of Bayview Malate, same building as Jinsiang, across the street from Go! Kizip and Hwangso Makchang.

The occasion was an informal farewell party for KD.

Along with MG, the three of us constituted the Regional Office’s first “legal team.”  (I definitely need permanent staff.)

The first venue was Brothers (get it?).

The food was mediocre.  After the one dish – nothing to inspire confidence that other dishes would be any better – we went elsewhere for Round 2.

This post covers two restaurants, same dish, different dates.  I will do this more often to accelerate the completion of TEKREM.

Neulpureun is a Korean restaurant.  In English, the name of the place is Ssangdungi (twins).

Every table is different from the rest – wondering if the restaurant started this way.

Most soup + rice combos are a bit cheaper than the standard 300 PHP price point.

Yes, please inform the customer when rice must be ordered separately.

Meh.
