Samgyupsalamat is a Korean BBQ restaurant chain. Founded in the Philippines under Korean ownership. Currently 7 locations, with plans for another 15 by the end of the year. 5 kinds of pork – mostly variations on pork belly – for 449 pesos per person, or 10 kinds of pork and beef for 499 pesos – in unlimited quantity, plus side dishes, rice, soup.
By 5pm, a long line had already formed, but our advance team had snagged a table and initiated the service.
The food was good. Not the greatest meat, not the greatest sides, not the greatest set-up, but decent. Reminded me of similar cheap all-you-can-eat restaurants near college campuses in Korea, catering to hungry students. Totally legit.
