When it comes to Korean food, Kimchi is my favorite. An appetizer that I can’t stop eating once I start. I either eat it as is or partner it with a main dish. Me and my family rarely eat at Korean restaurants, but when we do, it must serve quality and delicious Korean dishes. And one Korean restaurant that does not disappoint is Bulgogi Brothers. Being in the business for quite some time now, they do know how to please their customers by serving authentic Korean fare.
The scent of delicious food cooking inside Bulgogi Brothers at their Greenbelt 5 branch made me really hungry! Each table has individual fryers so you can cook the dishes by yourself or ask a staff to do it for you.
Here are Bulgogi Brothers’ 7 New Korean Classics that I know you will definitely enjoy eating.
Spicy Rice Cakes (Php125.00)The spicyness doesn’t overwhelm but you know it’s there! So, for those who have low tolerance in spicy food, be forewarned that this dish has some kick! But since I love eating anything that’s spicy, I really enjoyed the rice cakes! It has a chewy texture though.
Crisp Chicken Wings (Php350.00)The flavors are there – the right amount of sweetness, a little bit of saltiness and the slight heat that makes this dish addicting! I actually ate this in tandem with the Ginseng Chicken Soup.
Ginseng Chicken Soup with Prunes (Php395.00)I normally veer away from dishes with ginseng because I am not fond of it. Ginseng usually tastes woody and a bit bitter. But I was surprised when I tried this. It tasted nothing like what I thought it would. It actually reminded me (well everyone of us) of Chicken Tinola… but better in a way. It had a very soothing taste and it was seasoned just right. The chicken was soft and can be pulled apart easily. The prunes added quite a nice twist on the entire dish. It goes perfectly well with the Crisp Chicken Wings. The soup tempers the heat when you’ve had too much of the wings.
Spicy Cold Noodles (Php225.00)At first, I was not impressed with the presentation but as they say, looks can be deceiving, because it tasted surprisingly great! This dish has quite a punch but the buckwheat noodles which has a nutty flavor and goes well with the lettuce, sprouts and hard boiled eggs lessens the heat a bit. Good thing Bulgogi Brothers’ air conditioning was turned all the way up. Otherwise, I might have ended up sweating from eating too much spicy food!
