Korean Samgyupsal at Sing Sing Meatshop and Restaurant in BF Homes
Situated at BF Homes Parañaque City is a value-for-money Korean establishment called Sing Sing Meatshop and Restaurant. If you’re a meat lover, then this place is perfect for you.
SingSing Meatshop Menu
After shooting some hoops at The Village, my cousins and I checked this place out at Aguirre Avenue. Who wouldn’t go to this place? With unlimited Pork Samgyupsal at 299 per person plus unlimited side dishes, this is a paradise for authentic Korean food fanatics.
Mixed vegatables plate
Since we arrived at about 9:30 in the evening, there were already many vacant tables. If you plan on eating here, better arrive early or late. Upon entering, the first thing you see is the transparent food preparation area and also the owner personally escorting you to the dining “floor”, traditional Asian style (cushion and low table), which was new for us. We felt like actors in a Koreanovela!
Authentic Korean pancakes
Checking out the affordable menu, we then ordered two unlimited samgyupsal (beef + pork + vegetables + buchu jeon) each for PHP 299 and the beef bulgogi set for PHP 700. Each table is assigned with a very accommodating personal server to cook the meat and refill everything on the table. For a complete Korean barbeque experience though, you can choose to do it yourselves. Just watch out for the hot cooking oil!
We got to get to know Jen, our server, a little bit and realized that she was from Dipolog. Good thing she speaks Cebuano since my Tagalog-speaking skills are a bit rusty. (“Nakakapagpabagabag!” my favorite Filipino tongue-twister.) The cooking process felt like it took forever, teasing our hungry stomachs. Thankfully, she was a beautiful distraction to our starving state!

Now, the moment we’ve all been waiting for has come. Eating begins in three, two, one, attack!!! Complete and utter silence starts now.
The meat wrapped in mixed vegetables combo
And then boom, just like that. The bursting of foodgasmic Korean flavors in our mouths. The beef tasted like bacon. It was so soft and chewy, I couldn’t get enough of it. Kuya Ton really loved the meat wrapped in mixed vegetables combo which we all tried also. Joy loved the beef bulgogi which kind of tasted like beef stew Filipino-style. And oh the side dishes, the kimchi, pancakes and the egg rolls were gone so fast that Jen told us that the chef couldn’t keep up with our refills! Haha! (I can just imagine the owner conversing in Korean-English telling Jen not to quickly refill the side dishes or their profit will suffer.)

Groupie after eating
After forty-five minutes of munching, we were already at our limit. Jen suggested ending the meal with their specially-brewed coffee for free. But wait, there’s more. What I didn’t expect was that we were allowed to take the remaining food home with us! Round 5 at home okay! Another souvenir was the lingering greasy smell on our clothes probably due to a problem with the kitchen’s exhaust fans, which was okay since we were going home anyway. Moreover, there was no service charge, so for Jen’s tender loving care, we gave her a sincere thank you and a generous tip.
Aftershock from the attack of the starving gentlemen
For a surely satisfying meal, we spent only about fifteen hundred pesos. We’ll surely be back! So if ever you are in BF Homes, check this place out and you surely won’t regret it! See you there strangers!
