Let’s Eat Kimbap: A Korean Snack House in Dasma
Whenever Filipinos say that they want to eat Korean food, they often talk about Samgyeopsal (삼겹살). Let me tell you that Korean food is not limited to grilled meat. There are actually establishments called Gansikjib (간식집). Gansikjib literally means snack house. I’m so happy that I found one few blocks away from our house. It’s called “Let’s Eat Kimbap”.
I and my friend, Ella from Kimchi Adventures, went there to have some snacks. We ordered Koki (Gogi) Mandu (₱180), Jjapaghetti (₱120), and Kimbap (₱100).
Before I make a review of the food, I just want to say that they have the best Kimchi! It’s not that spicy and the vegetables tastes really great. You’ll definitely ask for a refill!
Koki Mandu (고기만두)
Koki Mandu is delicious! They served it with Korean Soy Sauce. I like the container, very Korean. I wish they are a bit bigger. Anyway, as for the value for money, I don’t mind paying ₩3,800 for 10 pieces of mandu. That’s actually a good price for a good quality food.
I don’t know how to compare the taste of Jjapaghetti (짜파게티) to any meals here in the Philippines. I tried this in Korea and I must say that it tastes the same. If you’re not a fan of spicy noodles like me, you must give this a try. The serving size is good for two people (in our case).
Why would you got to Let’s Eat Kimbap if you’re not going to eat Kimbap? HAHAHA! I love that they don’t have prepared Kimbap. They do it right after you order. The ingredients are fresh.
Besides Kimbap, they also have noodles, rice meals, and other Korean food.
The complete name of the business establishment is Let’s Eat Kimbap KSYJ Healing and Herbs Enterprise. Besides the Korean snacks, they also sell some products. They have dried mangoes, coconut oil, pure calamansi and some herbal supplements.
Mr. Kim, a Korean national, is the owner of Let’s Eat Kimbap. I was surprised when I heard one of the Filipino staff speak Hangul fluently. It’s great that they know not only how to cook but also how to speak Korean language. I think Korean customers won’t have a hard time talking to them.
Let’e Eat Kimbap is located at Unit 8 Amethyst Building, Sampaloc I, Dasmarinas City, Cavite. It’s in front of Metrogate.
I definitely recommend this if you want to try authentic Korean snacks. The price may be upscale for a snack but I’ll definitely say it’s worth it. My cravings for Korean snacks are satisfied!
