It so happened that one Wednesday night at around 7pm, our group was running low on patience to join other parties waiting to be seated, so we scouted Tomas Morato to find a place where we could have our fill of Korean food right away. We first went to Gangnam Grill at the corner of Sct. Limbaga St. and Tomas Morato and were immediately greeted with the news that there was an available table for six. (You bet we went crazy upon learning this.) Unlike the other parties that came shortly after us, we were so thankful that we didn’t have to endure long hours of waiting. This was how we started to get fond of this humble Korean joint.

But don’t get me wrong: Gangnam Grill Tomas Morato is beginning to attract more couples, groups, and families, so having zero waiting time is not guaranteed. We learned this on our succeeding visits. However, if you’re interested in what’s in store for you, know that you’ll be getting more than unlimited pork and beef to grill here. At Gangnam Grill Tomas Morato, you will find authentic Korean food choices in their menu that will surely make you come back for more.

First on Gangnam Grill’s Menu: Unlimited Korean BBQ

Gangnam Grill Tomas Morato offers an unlimited samgyeopsal set for only ₱399 per head (or $7.4). Ordering this will get you the following:

1. FAT AND JUICY PORK BELLY

Gangnam Grill’s samgyeopsal highlights the pork’s natural flavors and the nice smoky taste that comes from grilling it. Unlike marinated meats, this one relies on the pig’s juices (and some simple seasoning), so you get nothing but pure flavor.

2. NINE SIDE DISHES

3. Unlimited Cheese, Buttered Corn, and Steamed Egg
