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.
The restaurant's ambiance is nice, clean and looks like they serve very good food.
Aside from the regular dining table, they also have these cute short tables and each of them has stove grillers.
Mi Ga Jung Restaurant also serves Soju an alcoholic drink and various ice creams such as Melona, Samanco, and more.
Mi Ga Jung Korean Restaurant Menu has a medium range of choices.
Some of their Soups or Stew are Kimchi Jjigae (Kimchi Stew), Denjang Jjigae (Soybean Stew), Sundoobu Jjigae (Soft Tofu Stew), Seolrung Tang (Ox Bone Soup), Dogani Tang (Ox-knee Soup), Galbi Tang (Short Rib Soup), and more which costs around 250php - 600php.
Their meat selection are Kot Dung Sim (Rib Eye Steak), Galbi Sal (Grilled Beef Short Rib), Dweji Galbi (Marinated Pork Ribs), Jaeyuk Doobu Kimchi (Pork & Tofu with Kimchi), and more which costs around 250php - 500php.
Their Rice dishes costs around 150php - 350php, while their Rice Cake & Noodles were around 200php - 300php. Some of the food that you can choose from are Bibim Bab (Rice & Vegetables with Beef), Kimchi Bokum Bab (Kimchi Fried Rice), Topokki (Stir-fried Rice Cake), Mul Naeng Myun (Buckwheat Noodle Soup), Kalkuksu (Noodles with Seafood), Japche (Glass Noodles & Vegetables), Haemul Pajeon (Seafood & Green Onion Pancake), Kimchi Jeon (Kimchi Pancake), and more.
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!
That's me with my friends Rizzalyn and Ria. Before we dig in, picture first!!!
Me and Ms. Linda Yu, the owner of Mi Ga Jung, who is very mindful of her customers.
All smiles after that burpie burpie and amazing dinner. We totally love the food, the service, and most of all the price because it's not that expensive and the serving is more than enough for one person :) !!!
