My Maginhawa adventure continues but... after almost an hour of searching for the best restaurant for a dinner, we end up in Malingap. We decided to have a dinner buffet at Don Day Korean Restaurant in the Teacher's Village in Quezon City.
Before going to Maginhawa streets, Ahyen treated us to a movie date because we passed the CPA board exams last May. We watched Tomorrowland at the SM Cinemas in North EDSA.
Don Day Korean Restaurant offers affordable Korean buffet. For P399, you can get unlimited plates of samgyupsal (pork belly). But for variety, you can upgrade your buffet to chadolbaegi (beef brisket) for P447.
The restaurant had two sections - one is a smaller air-conditioned room, while the other is larger but without any air-conditioning. We got our seats at the wider room, where the buffet table is located, since the other one is full.
One thing that makes me want to go to these places is the experience of cooking the meat on your own grill. The non-stick tabletop grills are quite well-maintained which gives diners a hassle-free experience without burnt meat.

While waiting for the meat to cook, take your pick at the ready-to-eat section for some Korean dishes. The buffet table is composed mainly of appetizers and side dishes. Have some soup of the day or rice cakes in syrup.
Don Day Korean Restaurant in Malingap is open everyday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.; then from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
