Mobile number: 0910 052 3263

A portmanteau between two words from two different languages (the “samgyeopsal” dish and the Filipino customary way of expressing gratitude, “Salamat”), Samgyupsalamat is easily an expression that comes to mind after being served a full course of the tasty grilled pork belly.

If you are paying attention, you have probably noticed how many of the Korean restaurants in this list are often located in a single area—the Subic Bay Freeport Zone.

But where its peers find success in providing a believable Korean dining experience in their premise, Hwasubun Korean Restaurant finds success in offering Korean dishes in large volumes—bilao, anyone?
