So Woo is BOO!!!!! =(

My friends...here is my much awaited post on a Korean Resto found at the Habor Square beside CCP complex.

We were all looking forward to our Saturday dinner. I have more reasons than one, why so...first of all to see my dear Oli sans the cast on his leg! Hoooray you have two legs again Kras!!!! =) ...second...to be with all of our other friends....Ven, Elaine...Chilyn...War-Din....Matt-Sher...Jacko and Peach....and thirdly...to try dining at this Korean Resto called...So Woo (little Cow)

Traffic was terrible that night...as it was earth day and while we were traversing Roxas boulevard...it was around the time of the 1 hour light shut down time (aroung 8-9pm I think)

When we got there...Ven and Elaine got us a private room..nice noh? hehehe

Ah--ah...but once should notsay NICE too soon! We were served traditional small plates of Korean apps....like Kimchi....pickled raddish...omelets...



....they wer so so...all seems to taste the same....


We ordered two of this Pajeon like dish.....

..only it only had leeks...it was like...well...leek omelet! hahahah Ven told me its free...so we can;t complain about this

Bibimbop
Now on to the food we paid for... hay Bibimbop is a very traditional Korean dish....very simple...yet this one was....nothing like any bibimbop we have ever had. The best way I can describe their rendition of this dish....is....imagine a staineless bowl (like the ones we see in Korean telenovelas...when the women are depressed andeat lots of rice in...heheh) dumo in steamed rice....then take all the free appetizer plates they served us...and top with a fried egg! hahahaa The taste? well..just like rice that is made spicy by the Kimchi and pumped up with vegetables....that tasted like...nothing! hahahaha Really...even with the red paste that is supposed to flavor this rice didn'y help much. Very sad Bibimbop!


Kimchi Soup

This dish tastes like Kimchi doused with water =) Oh it was served with steamed rice!


This was the Beef Bacon like dish

This was served with lettuce and a platter of more veggies with kimchi...and the wiatress told us to wrap the gulay with the gulay and the bacon! hahaha Hay...


Chapchae

You would expect that authetic Korean restos could make at least, decent Chapchae right? Well, not here very unfortunate for us. The glass noodles were soggy and the dish was also tasteless =(

It was a very sad dinner indeed. To nurse our dismapyed palates...we all decided to go down to Icebergs!!! Nothing can cheer us up better than ice cream right? hahaha

Nonetheless, we had a great time still...good thing the company was good ;P

Sorry to hear about your experience, Jen.. I do think the food looks a little sad, especially that bacon. Eww.

Although after eating much of the free kimchi the last thing I would order is kimchi soup!
