KOREAN FOOD: Kyochon Chicken and Mr. Park’s

Woohoo!!! This is the last entry for my backlog! I’m so glad that I’m finally free from it!! :))

For this post, I will be talking about the ever famous Kyochon Chicken and Mr. Park’s! Both restaurants serve delicious Korean food. Once again, this is not a paid advetisement. 

I will start with Mr. Park’s first. (Redundant ba?)

I’ve heard about Mr. Park’s from my colleagues, Abba and Cara. They said  that they frequent Mr. Park’s after our shift just to buy some pastries or coffee. They also mentioned that the food is affordable and delicious. They also suggested that we try Mr. Park’s Bingsu.

It was the night when I drank with three of my male colleagues at Metrowalk. Since I’m not that close to them, I felt very awkward and nervous to hangout with them. It’s a good thing that Ino was on his way to Metrowalk to fetch me. I drank 4 bottles of San Mig Light and felt a little dizzy. Ino also drank a couple of bottles and had a couple of cigarettes because my colleagues are smokers too. I understand how he feels and I know that it’s just for that night, so I let him smoke.

After some chitchat and another round of beer, we decided to go home.

However, we didn’t go home yet. Because as we were strolling around Emerald avenue, we spotted Mr. Park’s and decided to give it a try.

We ate some bread and sandwiches to keep us sober. We also ordered the Fruit Bingsu that Abba and Cara were talking about. It was actually nice.

The ambiance was very chic and classy. The food looks gourmet and the staffs were very friendly and accommodating. According to their staff, Mr. Park’s is open 24/7. 🙂

It was very nice. However, the Bingsu that we ordered was not the exact Bingsu that I have in mind. I thought that it would be like Cafe 7ate9, which was creamy and sweet. However, since it’s composed of fruits, the sourness of some of the fruits affected the taste of the Bingsu. (Haha! What am I saying?) It’s 2:25 AM. I’m sorry.

Probably, it was because I’m expecting a heavenly taste. Unfortunately, it wasn’t as heavenly as it was supposed to be. Or I just have a high expectation on things.

I was able to take some photos but my phone’s battery died in the middle of my picture taking. 😦 I also have some photos in Ino’s phone but he hasn’t sent it to me yet.  I’ll just update this soon, okay?

So, here’s the beautiful place of Mr. Park’s:

Mr. Park’s Bread & Cake is located at Garnet Street Corner F. Ortigas Jr, Ortigas, Pasig City. Please visit them as soon as you can! 🙂


I’ve been hearing about Kyochon Chicken from my students because of its famous Chicken and beer (Chimaek) and it got me curious about how it tastes like.

Unlike Filipinos who like to eat chicken with rice, Koreans usually eat their chicken with beer. I have tried the  Yangnyum Chicken in Seoul (Korean Restaurant in Escriva) and it is by far the best chicken that I’ve ever had. Even their plain fried chicken is very delicious!

I was very giddy when Ino agreed to eat at Kyochon in SM Mega Mall. Since I’m such a curious cat, the thought of eating at a famous Korean restaurant where my students can actually relate to, made me really happy.

I became much happier when he ordered Tteokbokki and Hotteok for dessert. 🙂 Oooh, I’m becoming hungry again.

Anyway, here’s what we ordered:

 

 

The Tteokbokki and the Hotteok are really nice. I enjoyed the sweetness of both dishes! I enjoyed it too much that I ended up having a terrible toothache afterwards.

The chicken was pretty small but they have an explanation for that. It was okay. It was a little similar with Bonchon but I prefer Kyochon’s snacks and desserts more. I love Froyo (Frozen Yogurt) though.

I would like to go back to Kyochon and try another dish if I will have another chance. Hmmm… this is not a good time to get hungry. Time check 2:11 AM. :))

Hot Star Large Fried Chicken 8/8/2015

I’ve been stressed a lot these past few weeks and I don’t want to talk about it. Because of some reasons, I couldn’t log on and blog. But hey, I’m here now so yeah, we can chat or you can just listen to errr… read my stories.

Last week, Ino and I went to Hot Star Large Fried Chicken at Shaw 500 Zentrum, Synetserve, Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong.

Chicken Wings and Crispy Large Fried Chicken

It was delicious! The chicken is bigger than a fried Daing na Bangus!! It can be a lunch and dinner meal in one. It’s a bit overwhelming but if you’re really hungry, I guess you’ll ask for an extra rice or another serving of rice.

I totally forgot that I’m on a diet when I saw this. And my jaw actually dropped when I saw the chicken that I ordered. Ino really liked the chicken wings and made me try one. The flavor was good!!

The fries didn’t make the cut. I don’t know if we should have shaken it well or not but, I was expecting more but it was just bland for me. The mushroom soup was a version of Knorr’s Mushroom soup. I was expecting a better quality but the soup didn’t fair well. I guess, I was expecting a Campbell Mushroom soup quality… or maybe it’s just the branch.
