Bibimbap (P145) from Seoul Express
Seoul Express, BGC
So my friend (Tin) and I were looking for some place cheap to eat in the BGC area without resorting to the usual fastfood, when Tin remembered this-hole-in-a-wall Korean open-air restaurant at the Fort Strip. Since I was already hungry from all the walking and “art-hunting” (came there to originally enjoy BGC’s display for art’s month), I couldn’t care less where she’ll take me so we headed off to the Fort Strip. We decided to both order Bibimbap which literally means “mixed rice” with meat, sautéed and seasoned veggies, and chili pepper paste topped with raw or fried egg (thanks Wikipedia for the info).
The serving was hefty and the taste was delish. I don’t usually go for Korean food but this got me hooked. It had the right amount of spiciness and an authentic taste (which was explained when the owner arrived, a pure Korean guy). Anyway, I’ve been craving for Bibimbap ever since I tasted theirs. What have you done to me Seoul Express?! T.T Will be definitely going back, soon, I hope.
By the way, just a funny (or racist?) fact. I was wondering about the signs on their menu (wished I had taken a pic), so curious me went to ask the waitress what they meant. Turned out that they have a different menu for Korean and Filipino customers. She said the Korean menu contained pricier selections. Next time, I’ll ask if I can take a look at that mysterious Korean menu. HAHAHA.
