I always loved ihaw-ihaws and eat-all-you-cans. I was in town for a couple of days in Baguio so I invited my cousin for an eat-all-you-can Korean dinner at the Korean Palace something.
I saw numerous pictures on facebook with those traditional Korean outfits. I was scared. Really scared. I thought you should wear the outfit while eating. It’s just optional. To enjoy that Korean ihaw-ihaw experience. Or maybe just to pay tribute to Jang Geum of Jewel in the Palace. Imagine yourself cooking for the Emperor. #goals
The meat selection is of good quality. Like the other yakiniku places, they also have precooked Korean dishes like spring rolls, Chapchae, etc. They also have delicious kimchi. I didn’t take a lot of pictures of the food. Just one selfie with my cousin to show to my titas. I just missed her so much that I turned down the Instagram food post opportunity.
The restaurant is like a converted old house. I’m not sure. Maybe that’s the feels that they’re going for. Well, they succeeded. It’s really homey in there.
I have just one little thing to complain. Their toilet is not inviting at all. The ambiance in the dining hall is perfect. I don’t know what happened in the toilet. Maybe they’re just consistent with the theme of the restaurant. The old house feels. But in the toilet, more like old and abandoned house feels. It’s very dark. I felt sad upon entering. The lack of toilet papers and hand soap didn’t really help. I don’t know. Maybe it was just a bad day when we got there.
But food is food. And that’s what we came for in the first place. For 400 pesos, this is sulit. Don’t miss the photo ops wearing those Korean outfits. I’m not sure if it’s free or for rent. But go for it!
