Jeon Won - Authentic Korean Restaurant

Saturday, July 16, 2011 - 6 comments

A few months ago while scouting for new real estate properties in Don Antonio, my family and I decided to try this Korean restaurant that was suggested by my friend. After a few minutes, we found what we were looking for. It turns out that this place was a bit hidden from the main road.

When we got there, I found the place was pretty much Filipino inspired because all the bahay kubo's (Nipa Huts) that was used as private dining areas instead of the usual bare tables, and where everyone could see you eating. We were going to eat al fresco, although I would have preferred to eat in an air conditioned room but that area is no longer available.

Since it's only for a snack, we only ordered:
  • Samgyupsal and
  • Japchae
And it's a good thing too, because they have an "eat all you can" appetizers! We were even told that others only order one dish and just devour all the appetizers they can.

 Aside from that, they also gave us FREE Pineapple shakes. ^_^

We are a huge fan of Samgyubsal! Pork! We love it's mild taste, the way it is cooked (where the customer gets to cook it) and the way it is eaten. You wrap the pork in Lettuce. One can even add rice and spices in it to add more taste. One order of 400g is good for 2persons.
Php 500

The Japchae is another favorite. It's a Korean version of pancit bihon. Only this time, it has a mild sweetness in it.  The noodles are cooked with vegetables and pork and Korean seasoning. One order is enough for 2 persons.
Php 400

I love their grill. We have been planning on buying one since we're all addicted to Samgyubsal. I wonder if I could find one for sale in an online marketplace or at Zaarly.

We would definitely return to this place. A true authentic Korean restaurant. A hidden treasure. And one day, hopefully, we could make our own Samgyupsal at home.
