Woori Jib Korean Restaurant

We love Korean food! Our favorite San Song Korean Resto being one of the restos we love to visit in Makati. How fortunate for us to stumble upon a good Korean resto, closer to home...well closer to me at least =) Woori Jib Korean Restaurant, located along Kalayaan avenue, Q.C. has become our not so far Korean resto fave!
The place is nothing different from SanSong...a casualy Korean-house-y type place...patrons of which are mostly Koreans too...so that's a pretty good sign you're getting the real deal.

The waiters are very friendly and the Korean owners (who always happen to be dining there too) are very warm and hospitable....they sort of make you feel you are guests in their home....and yes we were mistaken for Koreans here =P hehehe

We love the freebies that go along dining in Korean restos. They serve us small bowls of thick golden pumpkin soup...more like pumpkin puree!

This can serve as baby food too! Yummy....and we eat it for it's nutritional value...and because it's FREE =)

A party of small appetizer plates...that they replenish each time we wipe out the dishes....




...they only stop serving them up when you tell them to =) How generous!
We love the potato salad with apples and cucumbers! Yummmmmy and FREE!!!

Now for the food we paid for....
Jampong
A generous steamy bowl of ramen noodles with a mish-mash of seafoods....mussles, squid, fish and prawns...plus veggies..veggies!!! Oh a bit spicy..ok...really spicy for me...but good that I still eat inspite the heat ;P

Sundubu-Chiggae

Our fave! A spicy soup with tofu and veggies! We eat it with hot and sticky Korean rice (I love those little metal bowls with lid that cradles the rice!) So good and soothing to empty stomachs!

Mandu
Korean dumplings! They taste like Japanese Gyoza...but I like this better =) Delicious with that soy-vinegary dip! We love to pick on them as we eat our soupy rice and ramen =)


More FREE STUFF... yes, the freebies go on...
after a hearty and healthy meal, they offer you coffee or tea for FREE!

Coffee with cream and sugar
It's instant...but it was nicely prepared by the owner...sweet and creamy...I just treat it like a dessert as I normally take my coffee black and brewed!


Rice Green Tea
For non coffee drinkers...the rice green tea is soothing to a very full belly! =)

Delicious and comfy Korean at Woorijib!
