Going Korean at the Don's Korean BBQ and Buffet Taytay

Everything Korean is so hip lately.  I am not surprised that one of the latest "food trip" destinations in Taytay, Rizal ~ Don's Korean BBQ and Buffet Restaurant was an instant hit among the general public.  

We just had to give it a try!

The restaurant is relatively small with limited seating and parking, so coming early is a must, if you want to be seated.  

We visited on a Sunday, lunch time and arrived at the restaurant at 11am.  There were already 4-5 families/groups seated, when we arrived.  About 30 minutes later the restaurant was already packed with guests ~ so yes it pays to come early!  

The restaurant serves traditional cooked food and BBQ.  You can opt for just the buffet or get an add on unlimited BBQ set (pork or beef or both) for grilling.  
Buffet options are quite affordable~
P275 Buffet Only
P335 Pork with Buffet
P395 Pork and Beef with Buffet
P445 Beef with Buffet

We got ourselves the Pork and Beef with buffet for our group and ended paying roughly P2000 after the senior citizen discounts, for our party of 6.  Not bad at all.  

I personally prefer beef, which was juicier and tastier than pork BBQ; I would definitely just get the beef option next time.  

My eldest enjoyed his time grilling ~ The Chef is in the House :P  

The hardest part ~ waiting for our food to cook.  
But don't worry the cooked buffet spread was good with varied choices.

Spices section ~ for seasoning your grill.  

Cooked buffet included traditional Korean dishes such as 
Bulgogi (marinated beef barbecue), Japchae (stir-fried sweet potato noodles), Ddukbokki (spicy rice cake), Haemul Pajeon (seafood vegetable pancake), Kimbap (Korean Sushi Roll, etc.  I was surprised to see a lot of choices considering the really affordable price.

Korean food cravings satisfied!  
Thumbs up for Don's Korean BBQ and Buffet!

TIP: A Korean BBQ Grill is not the best place to go before a meeting or another event. The smell of grilled food really sticks to your clothes.

Ddung's Bob Burger ~ Robinson's Antipolo

I was in the mood for something different and
out of my comfort zone.
With the kids left back home, I thought now is the time, me and my husband can have something without "fried chicken, pizza or spaghetti in the menu" (you know, what I mean right?).

We have been passing by a Korean restaurant in Robinson's Antipolo named "Ddung's Bob Burger" and I think it was high time we give it try. 

There were not much people inside when we came in, so this made me a bit (ok more than a bit) worried... (does no eating guests mean "so-so" food?).

The staff were very attentive and polite.
I think our wide eyed-blank (almost like lost) facial expression was a real give-in.   They really took time to explain their menu and even recommended their best sellers.  

We were served "house tea" while waiting for our order

For starters, we ordered seaweed spring rolls (with japchae fillings)

~ (Costs P100+). It was surprisingly delicious. I liked it better dipped into the spicy red sauce it came with.

And one of DDung's Hansang set meals, which was good for 2 ~ (Costs P500.00). 

I've read after that "Hansang" is a Korean word which is loosely translated to "A table full of food". 

Our order is spot on delicious
(not to mention colorful and looks really appetizing).  Wrapping the meat inside the leaf somehow enhances the flavor of the meat.  I really liked it.

Our order came with lemonade

 ...and side dishes, kimchi and (slightly) spicy anchovies. 

I am not a "kimchi" kind of gal, but the spicy anchovies, I can take home.

I think price is affordable for the quality of food, generous servings and really amiable crew you get.

MamaSpeaks gives it a two thumbs up!

Ddung's is located at the 2nd floor Alfresco Wing of Robinson's Antipolo.   If you happen to pass by the area, do give this restaurant a try.
