Samgyupsal House - Korean Restaurant in Baguio City
There are many Korean restaurants nowadays in Baguio City.
Sometimes it´s difficult to decide which one to go to,
because one may have a certain specialty dish that another does not.
Samgyeopsalis “pork belly”in Korean.
I think it is the same as “liempo” in the Philippines.
Here in Korea, it’s best eaten grilled, seasoned with ssam jang and then wrapped in a lettuce leaf.
Samgyeopsal House & Cafe is no exception to the rule.
What this place has to offer that all other Korean restaurants I´ve visit thus far does not have is the Jangeo Gu-i (grilled eel 500) and Pan Fry Duck (300), or my favorite, Roast Duck (350).
When you eat at a Korean Restaurant, samgyeopal is a must have.
It´s a no-brainer decision.
The tender pork belly, if grilled just right, remains juicy. Oh, how I love me some pork!!
And though I love pork, I love roast duck as equally, if not, more so than pork.
I every much enjoyed the well salted and the smokiness flavor the duck has.
It´s remains succulent even after it´s been cooked twice; by smoking and grilled on a hot ceramic grill, where in you can see most of the fat being drained.
I can´t describe enough how delicious, but sinful this particular entree is.
Any order you place at Samgyeopsal House & Cafe comes with unlimited sides.
Sides, except kimchi varies depending on what´s available at the market.
I implore any one visiting Baguio, or residents of Baguio who haven´t been to Samgyeopsal House & Cafe to try their roast duck!
The only downside, which is the only reason why I´m giving this establishment a 4/5 is because all grilled items has a 2 order minimum--no exceptions.
If you order both samgyeopsal and duck, cook the duck first and save the drained duck fat! You can use it to flavor the samgyeopsal when grilling. It adds a lot of depth and flavor to the pork!
