Wherever you go, now-a-days, the Korean Samgyupsal can be seen almost in every block. There is the Bawooboy Grill, Samgyupsalmat, Yes! Samgyupsal and many more just here in the vicinity of BF. It seems Unli-Korean food is at a boom. That is why, we have to try at least one of the Korean Restaurants. One of my mom’s friend recommended the Sing Sing Meat Shop and Restaurant along Aguirre Ave.
According to her, this is one of the older Korean Restaurant in the area that is still open. Anyhow, we went there. There is an ala carte or unlimited, not for sharing, pork/beef option.
We were served soup, kimchi and veggies. The soup was just warm, yummy and gratifying. Likewise, the kimchi was spicy as expected. Both had left a wonderfully warm feeling to my tummy. Then there was the lettuce wrap with the many fillings. A refreshing bite for the tongue after the hot and spiciness of the first two dishes.
We also ordered the Korean Sotanghon, which was quite hefty for a party of four. It was really good, much like the Filipino version. The only difference, I think, was the egg topping with sesame seeds.
Another ala carte order was the Pork Bulgogi. Quantity-wise, it was the same, pretty huge. It was spicy and sweet at the same time, which was a wonderful play of spices in the palate.
This last order was my brother’s. He ordered the Unlimited Pork. Since we were not allowed to try it. He said it was just ok.
All in all, our Korean eating adventure was enlightening. It was my first all Korean fare, and it was pleasant. The richness and distinctness of the flavors was nice. I wouldn’t mind eating Korean food over and over again, just not the unlimited all-you-can eat option.
Please note: I feel, I have to be frank. The place is also a meat shop, so we were greeted with the sight of the meat counter, right as soon as we entered, which was not so appealing to the senses. The smell of the uncooked meat was strong. But since it was very well recommended, we still went ahead and gave it a try, which food-wise was fine. Also just an fyi, there are two types of seating you could choose from, the regular table setting, or the traditional on the floor indian seat style. For the restaurant to have survived in BF for the longest time, they must be doing something good…just saying.
Sing Sing Meat Shop and Restaurant is located at 268 Aguirre Ave. BF Homes Paranaque.
