A Taste of Homemade Korean Food at Chambyuru Restaurant

Grilled beef with bean paste and sesame oil with salt and pepper
My friend and I were bored one day and decided on a whim to grab some Korean food in the Ortigas area. We wandered around for a bit and found ourselves in a tiny building where various Korean enterprises were crammed together.

We ended up at Chambyuru, a small restaurant that was more like a living room than an actual Korean restaurant. It was lunchtime, yet the place was quite bare. There was a loud group of Korean men at another table enjoying their steaming pot of jigae (spicy Korean stew) and throughout our meal, lots of other Koreans streamed in and out of the store.

Vikings Luxury Buffet Restaurant

I'm actually pretty late with this post, seeing as Vikings has already been making waves throughout the Manila all-you-can-eat scene. All real foodies appreciate a good buffet, and Vikings is here to provide us with just that: the chance to dine in luxury without having to pay extravagant amounts of cash.

The moment you enter the restaurant, you already feel the different ambience Vikings has. This isn't just a place to shovel endless amounts of food into your mouth; the spacious area, the bright appealing interiors, and of course, the gorgeous view of the ocean, all of this provide a great environment for not only eating food, but enjoying it as well.
