SAMGYUP SM Dasmarinas

Annyeong chingu! It’s been a while since I made a review about Korean restaurants in Cavite. I lived in Korea for two years and Korean food became really dear to me. Now that there’s a new Korean restaurant in SM Dasmarinas, I thought that I should give it a try to satisfy my cravings.

They use stone grill for Korean Barbecue. This keeps the meats flavor, cooks evenly,  and keeps nutrients to a maximum. It has no chemical processing and is free from heavy metals.

They have exhaust tubes per table which gets the smoke from grilling.  They have television for entertainment which shows the latest Kpop music videos. Kids will surely dance when they hear Boom boom! LOL.

Surprisingly, the people are very accommodating. They ushered us to the table. Then served the meals fast. I love that they kept on asking if we want more refills. I’m totally satisfied with the customer service.

  • For unlimited meat: Do not ask for a refill if you can’t finish them. They have a no leftover policy. They have a ₱150 leftover charge.
  • The maximum stay is 1.5 hours. Manage your time wisely.
  • There’s no take out policy. Don’t try to put meat in your bag. HAHA!
  • Birthday celebrants can enjoy 50% off for the entire month during weekdays. Celebrants must bring two paying adults.

For me, spending ₱499 for unlimited meat is worth it. That’s just around ₩10,000! It’s actually the price of the meals I get in Korea. The good part there is that even the rice here is unlimited. It’s perfect for Filipino stomachs!

It’s my first time to experience the cheese dipping sauce. I love that it’s also included in the unlimited package. It gives me a feeling that I’m eating shawarma with unli cheese! You should try it too.

Another thing I like is the presentation of meat. I like that it’s neatly arranged and the container isn’t that big. It great so that people can control how much meat they can consume. It’s good to avoid leftovers. I hope they could offer marinated meat in the future.

Lastly, I enjoyed eating their side dishes. The egg rolls can still be improved but the potatoes, kimchi, and pajeon are highly recommended. I would like to try their ala carte meals next time.

  1. Ooh another samgyeopsal restaurant to try! It’s good that this one is in SM Dasma – I feel like the other restaurants rarely open branches in the south.

  2. Just read that they have Melona. Huhu. I want to taste and experience it. Everytime I eat in a samgyupsal resto, I always go for their Japchae, may I ask how does it taste their? ???? Hope that they will open a branch here in North.

  3. I’ve always wanted to eat at a traditional, authentic Korean restaurant! I watch a lot of K-dramas and love how much emphasis is placed (sometimes unknowingly) on the food culture and family.

  4. This restaurant looks so appealing and the food yummy. I would love to try traditional Korean food with someone who knew what to order!

  5. I love Korean food! It’s no surprise that with the rising popularity of Korean influence or KPop in the country, Korean food will never be left behind.

    Did you encounter long lines too like the one in Samgyupsalamat? How does it differ from the rest? 499 is a good deal!

  6. This is cheap as well, though am not a huge fan of meat especially pork. Are those real korean pork?

  7. That looks like really great place to eat. I like that you can cook your own food, you can cook it to your likeness on how done you want it.

  8. I have never been in SM Dasmarinas particularly in SAMGYUP restaurant and I can say that this must been a perfect place to go with your friends to eat a delicious Korean dishes.

  9. That food looks amazing! It sounds cheap compared to my area but I don’t know for sure. Looks fun too if I’m honest, would like something like this near me!
