Lunch at Romantic Baboy: Unlimited Korean Grill at Southwoods Mall

When it comes to Korean BBQ, I always see Romantic Baboy and ito na yata ang pinakamaming branches na nakita ko. It was only last year when I saw Romantic Baboy branches that is near to our place. We have Romantic Baboy in Binan, Laguna, Southwoods Mall, and Festival Mall.

Last August, when we ate at TGI Friday’s. I saw the Romantic Baboy restaurant. It wasn’t open yet so we are waiting for the September opening but it did not happen, na-late sila ng bukas. I think December na sila nag-open so after my son’s Christmas Party we went to Southwoods Mall to eat at Romantic Baboy.

It was lunchtime so madami na rin tao but good thing there were still available tables. The staff pointed out the table where we are going to sit. May appetizers na agad sa table and I don’t know kung gaano na katagal yung appetizers doon.

We were there for several minutes pero wala na nag-assist pag kaupo namin. We asked for the menu and when we order na, the staff told us na hindi pala available lahat sa menu. I was a little bit disappointed kasi hindi man lang kami ininform ng staff bago kami pumasok. Of course, first time namin so siyempre mas okay sana complete yung menu so we can try each meat.

Anyway, since nakaupo na kami, nag-order na rin kami and we were advised na 2 types of meat lang daw ang pag-order. When they served the meats, hindi pala complete ang utensils. It was funny because may appetizers agad pero kulang-kulang sa utensils so we have to ask for spoon, fork, plates, and tongs. Binigay naman pero basa lahat, bagong hugas so kami pa magpunas? lol

Romantic Baboy Rate is P499, I’m not sure about the kid’s rate because we paid P499 for my 11-years old son. The rate includes unlimited pork and beef, unlimited rice and vegetables, 6 kinds of side dishes, and Gochujang jjigae. But they did not serve the gochujang jjigae or any soup. There are 8 different types of meat that you can choose from, you can order

Herb Samgyupsal - herb-flavored belly
Woo Samgyup - thinly sliced of beef brisket
Moksal - seasoned pork neck
Daepae Samgyupsal - thinly sliced of pork belly
Yangyum Galbi - marinated pork ribs
Romantic Bulgogi - sweet marinated Korean style beef
Spicy Beef - thinly sliced beef dip in spicy sauce
Curry Beef - thinly sliced beef dip in curry sauce

We were not able to try all the meat since it is not available. The grilling pan has space for an egg, cheese, and kimchi. We have to ask for the egg since they did not serve it yet. They also have noodles, rice meals, stew, and drinks which you can order for an additional fees.

What I don’t like is maliit ang space, as in magkakatabi lang yung table so kahit hindi mo gusto makinig, rinig na rinig ko ang usapan sa katabing table. Tapos ang ingay pa ng music so siyempre nilalaksan naman ng katabi ko boses niya. Napabilib tuloy ko sa appetite ng highschool students, ang dami kasi ng order nila. Sulit sa kanila. Hehehe!

We did not stay that long, we’re done after one hour and natagalan lang kami sa billing. The staff even gave us a single rose. So kaya ba Romantic Baboy dahil may rose after kumain? For payment, they only accept cash payment, parang wala pa yata ko nakainan na Korean BBQ restaurant na pwede credit card payment.
