WHERE IN METRO MANILA: Experience South Korea in Seoulia Korean Restaurant



It was a tiring day. We just had our final pre-board exams. We deserve a break. I was craving for a Korean cuisine. So, I told my classmates that we should try the favorite dining place for Korean cuisine located in the University Belt .


Just like other Korean restaurants, Seoulia Korean Restaurant has large amount of servings and it serves meals with abundant number of appetizers. Its dishes appeal to Filipino taste bud.

Seoulia is located in St. Thomas Square in Espana Boulevard, same place where Moonleaf Tea Shop is spotted. A day after our Seoulia experience, we had a lunch at Moonleaf Tea Shop, adjacent to the restaurant. Milk tea is our favorite drink. We always find time in searching for the best milk tea in town.

Going back to the topic, The menu at Seoulia is basically shareable — dishes that are good for 2-4 persons. Let's take a look at their menu.


Ramen is priced at P99. The restaurant has special Ramen at P139 served with egg (plus P10) or rice (plus P20). They also serve Nuguri (P129), Jjpageti (P129) and Raboki (P229).


For Kimbap, they have Seoulia at P100 and Tuna and Cheese, both at P120. They have steam and fried Mandu at P160. Bibimbap is also at P160.


Dolsot-Bibimbap is being offered at P200 while Squid Dolsot is at P220. You may try Kyeranmari at P160 or Ddukbokki and Japche, both at P200.

Their best-sellers, Jjambbong and Jjangmyen have two versions - the first is rice (P230) and the other one is noodle (P250). They also offer Kalgookano and Dduk-Gook, both at P250.


One of the favorite Korean dishes of the young Filipinos today who are addicted to their cuisine is Bulgogi. In Seoulia, they have beef (P200), pork (P180), chicken (P180) and Dduk (250). Galbi-tang is being offered at P280.

The price for their soups ranges from P220 to P280. Their best-seller is the Kimchi-jjigae. Also in their menu are Dwenjang-jjigae, Sullungtang, Yukgaejang and Suntufu-jjigae.

Aside from our main dishes, we ordered Sam gyeop  sal (P250). This is one of their best-sellers and specialties. This dish came with a plate of lettuce and two dipping sauces: ssamjang and gireumjang. Other best-sellers are Bude-jjigae (P600), Dak doritang (P600 for small and P700 for large) and jjimdak (P600 for small and P700 for large).
Other Seoulia specialties are Galb-jjim (P600), Haemulpajeon (P300), Kimchijeon (P300), Gopchang-Jungol (P700), Kimcho-Jungol (P800), Bossam (P700) and Yangnyeom-tongdak (P500).

If you're looking for a place of tea and coffee, the restaurant has its own Seoulia Cafe upstairs. It serves pastries and drinks at affordable prices like Honey Toast and Lovely Toast. However, the cafe is full of 'tambays'

You may visit their Facebook page. But they are not maintaining it.

WHERE IN METRO MANILA: Soya Bar, the bar of guiltless pleasure

 
 
Enjoy the pleasure of healthy treats at Soya Bar, a counter snack specializes on soya food products.

Soya Bar is one of the most visited food places because the prices are budget friendly and the menu gives you choices for a healthy lifestyle.

According to WebMD, "soy from foods is linked with lower risks of breast and endometrial cancer in studies. It  appears to help women under age 65 with cognitive function." It does not carry any significant risk.

"Soy relieved certain menopausal symptoms," WebMD added. "For menopausal symptoms, the recommended starting dose is 50 mg of total isoflavones a day, the researchers write. Getting soy from foods is encouraged, too. Soybeans, including edamame, are high in isoflavones. Soy flour, soy protein isolate, and miso soup also have high isoflavone content."
 
According to studies, foods containing soy protein may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. It also has an antioxidant effect because of the isoflavones content found in soy products.
