Today’s consumer palates seem to be unpredictable; which is why the culinary experts are not putting their masterpieces into rest. Master Chefs and innovative food experts alike spend most of their time in finding ways to recreate classic dishes, sometimes redefining the cuisine in the process. This seems to be the case for K-Town Cuisine.
Although Korean cuisine is not something new to the Filipinos, Soban K-Town Grill’s debut to the Philippines is still something to look forward as they offer a redefined Korean dining experience, thus revolutionizing the local food scene. In Soban K-Town Grill, one key inspiration it longs to share with the Filipino market is combining traditional Korean techniques and recipes with ingredients and flavors all over the globe, to produce one-of-a-kind dishes. Here is the characteristic of the Korean food evolution happening in K-Town communities over L.A, New York, Hong Kong and more, led by Korean immigrants with ties to the past and to the present.
If you’re looking for a new food adventure, Soban K-Town Grill is a must-try being the first of its kind in the country. It is a place where you can grill pork (Samgyupsal) and chicken (Dak Galbi) barbecue, marinated in six mind-blowing flavors, explore a line-up of scrumptious K-Tacos (Korean tacos) and Korritos (Korean burritos), and enjoy such delectable dishes in a hip restaurant ambiance that can easily become the new neighborhood joint.
Soban K-Town Grill is the brainchild of the collaboration between Mr. Sung Rah, Sariwon Korean Barbecue’s award-winning restaurateur from Seoul and the Happyfoods Group behind Sariwon Philippines.
