Korean Food Philippines

My first Korean feast is at the Mi Ga Jung Korean Restaurant located along Brgy. Holy Spirit Quezon City, near Commonwealth Avenue. I dine with my former office-mates/friends Rizzalyn and Ria. All three of us love Korean dramas or series.

With all the deliberation we ordered Yukgae Jang, Jja Jjang Myun, and Sam Gyup Sal. After we have ordered, these super cute Korean utensils and plates were served as well as this interesting tea drink. My friend Rizzalyn said that it is rice tea.

We were surprised when these "little dishes" (side dishes) were served because we didn't order them. The staff informed us that it's on the house and most Korean restaurant always serve free side dishes. Happy Happy!!!

The Korean side dishes were fantastic, Kimchi, Gaeran Mari (Stuffed Egg Omelette), Vegetable Pancake, Shigeumchi (Seasoned Spinach), and Odeng Bokkeum (Pan-fried Fishcake). My favorites were Odeng Bokkeum and Gaeran Mari aside from my all-time love Kimchi!!! You can have up to three refills of these side dishes.

First stop is Yukgae Jang, a very spicy soup Korean dish made from shredded beef, scallions, bean sprouts, celery, eggs, some glass noodles and other ingredients then served with a bowl of rice. Most Korean soup dishes were served with rice. Mi Ga Jung's Yukgae Jang costs 250php.

Next is Jja Jjang Myun, which costs 200php, is a noodle dish topped with a thick sauce made of salty black soybean paste, diced pork and vegetables. The noodles are thick, the sauce is so yummy, and the dish really makes you full. We saw this traditional Korean dish in many Korean Dramas like The Coffee Prince, The Greatest Love, and Scent of a Woman!

Last is Sam Gyup Sal, slices of pork belly meat which is grilled at the diners’ table. You can eat it directly or wrapped it in lettuce and sesame leaves. It has two kinds of sauces, the spicy paste and the sesame oil with salt and black pepper. Mi Ga Jung's Sam Gyup Sal costs 250php. It is a very popular Korean dish!

BDJ Fair 2013 Make It Happen - Late Post

BDJ Fair

I attended my first ever BDJ or Belle De Jour Fair last October with my best-friend Arcelie  Santos and her cousin's girlfriend Gerly Casinto. BDJ Fair is for ladies or bellas that are kikay, successful, innovative, adventurous, shy, and with low self-esteem, in short all girls are welcome. If you are a shy person or not that sociable, I encourage you to join BDJ events, in this way you will conquer your fears and enjoy at the same time. Remember we only live once so enjoy! I was hesitant at first to attend BDJ Fair 2013 because I do not know the process or things that is in-store  and the event location is way too far from us. The main reason I want to be a part of this event is I can buy BDJ Planner for a discounted price. So in the end I manage to attend, if there's a will there's a way :) !

Sbarro's Garlic Bread

Sbarro Garlic Bread

 Pasta without a bread..?! Absolutely not! Red sauce, pesto or white sauce, with Bolognese or meatballs, any variation is best paired with bread, especially garlic bread! Filipino households even paired spaghetti with pandesal, toast or tasty (white bread). My father loves to deplete his plate full of sauce with his tasty :) .

Belle de Jour Power Planner 2014

BDJ Planner 2014

My first ever Belle de Jour Power Planner, why not start my 2014 right by creating my first ever blog post for 2014 and writing/playing in this very pretty planner. I'm not a planner-lady-thing, I do not collect or buy expensive planners before, just a simple notepad or mini calendar will do wherein I can just write my thoughts and record the day's event.
