Best Korean Restaurants in Baguio City
Team Out of Town Blog Hub (www.outoftownblog.com) – “Tara Samgyup!” has long been a hit phrase among Filipinos ever since the “KDrama Fever” hit our country a long time ago. Yes, thousands of Filipinos were already addicted to popular Asianovelas in the 2000s, but it was not until 2016 when the “Kdrama Fever” took the country by storm. During these years, countless Korean restaurants were popping up in every corner of the city. Korean BBQ or Samgyeopsal was a huge hit, especially for the millennials and students. Since then, our love for Korean foods grew even bigger to the point that Korean foods are now a regular part of our grocery list.
Since we’re talking about the Samgyeopsal, I think there’s no other place in the country to have a delightful Korean BBQ experience than Baguio City! The cold climate of the Summer Capital of the Philippines is perfect for Korean foods, especially kimchi and ramen. Oh, and don’t forget that the warm and fuzzy feeling that the good old soju brings is also perfect for Baguio City!
All in all, you can’t just shake the feeling that Baguio City and Samgyeopsal do sound nice together, right? Well, as always, I’ve got you! Join me as we discover the Top 7 Must-Try Korean Restaurants in Baguio City!
