Foodies by heart and by soul, blogger, happy campers and almost everyone are raving about restos in Bonifacio High Street. We started with our gastronomic escapade at Sariwon Korean Barbecue for our super late lunch/afternoon snack. Sariwon Korean Barbecue started from Sariwon in North Korea. Developed a broth recipe from different fruits and vegetables for the Korean Bulgogi. The first restaurant opened with just twenty seven seats and expanded to having 350 seats in their main branch. Aside from bulgogi, Sariwon is famed for their “Galbi” or barbecued short ribs. Now it opened its first branch in the Philippines and we can enjoy the most awarded bulgogi and Galbi of Korea.
We were first served with seven Banchan or Korean Side Dish. Banchan is served in small portions along with rice to be enjoyed and shared in every meal. Namely Kimchi (fermented Napa Cabbage), Blanched Watercress, Roasted Anchovies, Boiled Bean Sprouts, White Radish in sweet vinegar sauce, Mashed Potato and Pumpkin with Raisin and Cucumber, and Fresh Green Salad)
|Deungsim Yangnyeom Bulgogi Php 495.00|
Sariwon is known for the authenticity of Korean food served. No one should miss trying out the most awarded Bulogogi. Bulgogi is made from thin slices of prime cuts of beef, marinated and grilled on dome perforated griddles, onions and mushrooms are also grilled together with the meat and then combined with the noodles and tasty broth.
We had the Deungsim Bulgogi. Honey marinated slices of USDA choice beef grilled at the table, served with freshly made potato noodles. I love the perfectly cooked slices of beef, the sweetness from the onions, the tenderness of the mushroom and potato noodles with the savory broth. Me and my dear partner managed to finish this dish, but can be shared by four.

|Japchae Php 350.00|
Japchae is a Korean dish with vermicelli noodles, mushrooms, green onions, carrots and other vegetables. Served with beef. Enjoyed the texture from the mushroom with the crunch from the carrots. The sweetness is well balanced by the saltiness from the soy sauce with tender bits of beef.
|Dak Galbi Php 350.00|
Grilled boneless chicken delicately marinated overnight in a secret sauce for the tangy taste. A perfectly grilled chicken with a little sweetness that caramelized from the secret marinate.
Sikhye is a traditional sweet drink from Korea made with rice and malt. It was given as a complimentary drink/dessert after our meal. Very refreshing and yummy.
Sariwon also serves a list of wines (red and white) to be paired with your bulgogi. They are also the first restaurant in Korea to pair wine with Bulgogi to enhance the flavor of the meat.
Over all Experience:
Super Duper Okei =) =) =) (Location, Service, Price, Food, Atmosphere)
