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).
