Korean cuisine has found its way into the hearts and tummies of Bacolodnons (and Filipinos in general), thanks for K-Dramas and our love for spicy food. In our city, get authentic Korean food from KOREAN GRILL, a relatively new Bacolod restaurant.

There had been a Korean Grill Bar back then, but this is a different one, owned and managed by a Korean and his wife who is from Bacolod. The restaurant may look unassuming on the outside, but do not underestimate their food. Their dishes are authentic and flavorful and have big servings. So while the orders may cost higher than your usual meals, don’t worry because he servings may be shared by at least three people. And you will be greatly satisfied.

The place looks so simple on the outside that you will not find a glaring sign from across the street. If ever, what will catch your attention are the grills on the frontage. But while it’s not eye catching, you get the feel of a local restaurant that’s common in maybe Busan? I am not a K-Drama expert but it does exude such vibe–a neighborhood Korean eatery serving your favorites and where you can drown out your day’s stresses over a bottle of soju. And yes, they serve soju, too.

Samgyeopsal is a Korean favorite that has also been enjoyed by Filipinos. You grill the pork belly lightly, place it on a lettuce leaf, put sauce and a piece of garlic and mushroom and then munch on it, So good and filly! 😀

Dr. Dominic Alojado of Skycraper City on video cooking sampyeosal at Korean Grill. For the first time, I didn’t have to do the grilling as someone else did it for me. I could just take photos and eat afterwards. hihi Thanks doc!

They have most Korean specialties like samgyeopsal, kimbob, and bulgogi, plus there are is so much more to explore there, be it a vegetable, chicken, pork, beef, or seafood dish. And yes the seafood dishes are sooo good and fresh. They don’t scrimp on ingredients and the owners really supervise or even cook in the kitchen so they can preserve the quality of their food. But oh, they don’t have bibimbap and jjampong. Hope they add these because a lot of Filipinos like these two.

Korean Grill Bacolod Experience

We had a good experience at Korean Grill Bacolod — one of the many Korean restaurant in Bacolod. Food is good and the servers are simple but friendly and helpful. They have an airconditioned and non aircon area, but if you dine and at the aircon area and there is grilling, you will have to contend with the smoke. If you prefer to dine outside, it’s the heat and humidity that you will have to embrace.

During our hearty lunch, we had Samgyeopsal, Haemul Pajeon, Jobang Nakjibokkeum, Haemul-tang, Dak-Galbi, and Ojingeo Bokkeum. You can check photos around this post.

Dak Galbi doesn’t look like much after it is cooked, but I really like it, especially the rice sticks.
