Dinner at Baek Yuen Korean Restaurant

It was Mother’s Day last Sunday and my husband insisted that we go out to celebrate. I was feeling lazy because I know that restaurants are packed and traffic is everywhere. I’m pretty sure that a lot of people will celebrate Mother’s Day.

He suggested trying the Korean restaurant in Silang, Cavite. I try to google it but it wasn’t easy because I don’t even know the name of the restaurant. We always passed this on our way to Tagaytay but the name wasn’t visible. Check out this picture. 

We left at 5PM so we could have an early dinner. Upon arrival, I saw the name of the restaurant “Baek Yuen”. My husband checked the menu while we’re waiting in the car. I’m not a fan of Korean food so he makes sure that I can eat something. We’ve tried Bulgogi Brothers before so he knew that I will enjoy the grilling experience. 

We chose this table but there are regular tables and chairs if you don’t want to sit on the floor. You have to remove your shoes or slippers. 

Upon seated, they gave us the menu. Good thing that the staffs are Filipino so we did not have a hard time to order. But browsing the menu wasn’t easy so we just order the Special Menu P1500. The staff said that the special menu is good for 4 persons but we still ordered it para di na kami mahirapan mamili. Hehehe! 

When they served the food, we’re really surprised because we don’t know if we can eat everything. Parang nagbuffet na kami sa dami. 
The special menu includes different types of side dishes, 3 types of sliced meat, raw vegetables, rice and softdrinks. They also gave us free soup, I just don’t know the name.

In Bulgogi, the staff was the one who prepared and grilled our food. In Baek Yuen, they can grill the food or we grill our own food and we chose the latter. While my husband and I grilled the food, my son was watching YouTube because there was free wifi. 

I checked the different types of Korean grilled dishes and according to Wikipedia, Samgyeopsal (삼겹살) is an unseasoned pork belly, served in the same fashion as galbi. Sometimes cooked on a grill with kimchi together on either side. Commonly grilled with garlic and onions, dipped in sesame oil and salt mixture, and wrapped with ssamjang in lettuce. 

Galbi (갈비) is pork or beef ribs, cooked on a metal plate over charcoal in the center of the table. The meat is sliced thicker than bulgogi. It is often called "Korean barbecue" along with bulgogi and can be seasoned or unseasoned.

Overall, we were satisfied with the food and service and we really enjoyed our new experience. We learned something new about our foodtrip. The only downside of this restaurant is, aircon and electric fans are not enough to cool the place.

It was a good decision that we had an early dinner because when we left, a lot of guests were coming in.

  1. That's a lot for 1500. My family loves Korean food; Bibimbap and Bulgogi are a few of our favorites.

  2. That's definitely a lot for 1500. Food wise, it's a great experience but just like what you said, the ambiance needs a little improvement, specially the ventilation.
