Gone are the days of the typical buffet in the Philippines because unli grill and restaurant are now a thing here in Manila and all over the island. To anyone who loves grilling, unlimited meats, and at the same time paying for a little money to eat quality meats then I highly suggest visiting these two of the best Korean Restaurants in the metro.

Two of the Best Samgyeopsal Restaurant In The Metro:

Fantastic Chef 

Located in Remedios Circle, Malate Manila.

I remember those days in college when all of the known resto-bars, comedy bars, night clubs for college students and yuppies were all in Malate and we can all drink and drunk. We also go to these cheap restos where we can have breakfast and get sober before going home. After a decade, all our favorite clubs and bars were closed and replaced by 3-star hotels, hostels, and inns.

Also, you can visit Remedios Circle and enjoy dining in Fantastic Chef with your date, friends, and even with your family since their first branch has expanded its seating capacity from 50 to 120. Yes, Fantastic Chef Remedios can accommodate huge group all at the same time.

Prices: 499 Pesos / 10 USD for Unlimited Pork and Chicken. Additional 150 Pesos / 3 USD for Unlimited Beef.

What I love about the meats in Fantastic Chef is their wide choices of quality marinated pork, beef, and chicken. Flavors are perfect, not too sweet at all. Most of all, the cuts are not too thin, unlike the other Korean Samgyeopsal Restaurant I’ve tried before.

And always order a bottle of Soju to enjoy most of your Korean Grill experience.

150 Pesos / 3 USD per bottle



Fantastic Baka

Located in front of ABS CBN, Quezon City

People from the north side of the metro can enjoy a premium unlimited meat and 15 kinds of pork and beef.  Plus an unlimited milk tea in Fantastic Baka. Perfectly located in front of the largest TV company in the Philippines. Very accessible for anyone who wants to come here even via commute and they have ample space for their guests bringing their cars.

The restaurant is huge and they have private rooms located on the 2nd floor. The restaurant can accommodate 150 pax.

Price: 799 Pesos / 16 USD

My Blogger friends and I enjoyed our lunch in one of their private rooms. Each room has a button to call for the restaurant staff, air conditioning and enough space to move around. From 4 pax to 10 pax they have private rooms for you and your friends.

I’d say I enjoyed most of their meat choices here compare to Fantastic Chef because I love BEEF and here in Fantastic Baka they have varieties of beef cuts and marinated beef. You will definitely have food coma here so take time to eat and chew these meats or else you might end up having upset stomach afterward, lol.
