Korean J Grill, Tomas Morato, Quezon City

My friends and I went to Tomas Morato for a Japanese dessert shop but we decided to eat dinner first. I searched the internet for the nearest Korean Restaurant in the area except for Hwaroro and Hanayo since the last two are buffets. 

Aside from grilled meats, they have ala carte items and shabu-shabu as well. 

I don't know what this soup is called but it's refreshing to have this alternately eaten with Kimchi Chigae. Gosh, why can't I eat spicy food?!

Banchan are okay. Not a lot but okay. Nah, I just wanted a myeolchi bokkeum hahaha but the side dishes are fine. 

First time eating in a Korean Restaurant where there's scrambled egg on the grill. 

I also liked the sweet potato. hehe. There were only two pork slices for an order of one samgyeopsal.
It was the waitress who grilled the slices for us so that's a plus. 

Kimchi Chigae

We had this made as mild but it was still spicy for me that I had to order a cup of rice just to enjoy eating this. :)) It was good though just that I prefer to taste spiciness and sourness in my kimchi chigae. Ayoko ng anghang lang. Pero Korean eh. hehe



Okay, even with the lack of description for each food item above since this is delayed for more than a month, I think Korean J Grill is one of the "okay" restaurants in Tomas Morato. I have visited two more within the area but they didn't make it to the blogosphere. lol.

Shonan Tei Japanese Restaurant, Mindanao Avenue, Quezon City

Ay grabe, Tandang Sora Vicinity! Punong-puno na po tayo ng restaurants and food parks, pansin ko lang. Lakas maka-baboy, life!

I've been seeing this small Japanese Restaurant along Mindanao Avenue, Quezon City named Shonan Tei for months but it was only recently that we went there and tried eating. I wasn't able to search online about their menu and all so everything was a surprise. Sarap naman and affordable, pwede na especially 'cause the servings are generous. 

Tori Karaage

Deep Fried Japanese Style Fried Chicken Fillet
P 200.00

Skin was crunchy, the meat was tender. It might be me and my safe food choices but this is the best for me out of all the food we ordered that night. 

P 220.00

Potato Korokke
P 150.00

Japanese version of croquette.

P 50.00/stick

Grilled Chicken Thigh with Grilled Sweet Garlic 

These has to be the sweetest garlic I've tasted. 

P 220.00

Somen Cold
P 200.00

White thin noodles dipped in soy sauce

It's their version of Korea's Naengmyeon. The only reason why I ordered this Somen Cold is because of the video I saw years back when the noodles are passed through a bamboo and it's up to the eater to catch using chopsticks. I don't think it's for everyone though 'cause no one else in my family liked it. haha! It's probably because I've been exposed to Naengmyeon before that I enjoyed this. 

Operating Hours:
5PM - 1AM
863 Mindanao Avenue, Bahay Toro, Project 8, Quezon City

Xiao Nan Men Taiwanese Restaurant, Z Mall, Banawe

Given the many options of Chinese food in Banawe, Quezon City, one would really find it hard to decide which place to eat - one I can recommend is Xiao Nan Men in Z Mall. 

King Fish in Mango Chili Sauce

I found this refreshing probably because of the mango in the sauce rather than the usual sweet and sour. 

Deep Fried Stinky Tofu

I didn't know that this dish's name is Stinky Tofu 'cause I was only told that this one's tofu. I immediately reached out and got a slice only to find out that this food is an acquired taste. As in. don't get me wrong, this must be delicious for other people (I heard it's a popular snack in Taiwan) but the taste and the small is certainly not for me. 

For this, the stinkier, the tastier.

Stir Fried Taiwanese Sausage

You can't really go wrong with slices of sausage. I like that this isn't that sweet. 

Three Cups Chicken

Chicken slices in black sauce with mushroom and garlic. 

Sliced Beef Fried Rice with Bell Pepper

Ito 'yung sinasabing, "kanin lang, ulam na."

Scrambled Egg with Special Sauce

This is their version of omelette. I like the topping it has, it compliments the beef fried rice. 

I wasn't able to get the names of the dimsums below

Buttered Chicken

Reminded me of Baguio's Good Taste

Thank you, Xiao Nan Men and Aldous! :)
