KPUB BBQ Restaurant is definitely a haven for Korean Pop (KPop) lovers! This KPop concept Korean barbecue restaurant is one of the unique conceptual restaurants you can find in Metro Manila. Aside from the fact that it has a meat-all-you-can menu where you can gobble up as much meat as you want ranging from pork, beef, chicken and seafood, you also get to experience a KPop experience, right here in the Philippines as you indulge in Korean delicacies!
My fiancé and I went to KPUB BBQ Taguig branch last New Year’s Eve for dinner. KPUB BBQ Bonifacio Global City Taguig branch is a very memorable place for us. It is one of the restaurants that we used to dine at when we first started dating. I am huge fan of Korean barbecue. It is probably because I watched too much Korean dramas. Haha. 😂
KPub four (4) meat-all-you-can sets to choose from, prices ranging from Php 499 to Php 1499. When we visited, they had a promo price for all four sets, but it wasn’t indicated until when the promo ends.
Here’s the promo prices ~
Set A – Eat and Run: Php 899 + > Php 499+ (Unlimited for 1 hour)
Set B – Eat and Run Level Up: Php 1,199 + > Php 699+ (Unlimited for 1 hour)
Set C – No Limits: Php 1,399 + > Php 899+ (Unlimited offer)
Set D – To The Max: Php 1,499 + > Php 999+ (Unlimited for 2 hours)
It took us a while to decide which set to take. We definitely passed on Set A and B because of the one (1) hour limit. Dining in a rush and getting indigestion afterwards is definitely not our thing. We chose between Set C and D, and in the end, Set C won!
All of these sets includes soup, salad and several other Korean side dishes, which of course includes kimchi. Though their kimchi wasn’t really anything special. However, the soup is to die for and we ordered 3 additional sets of the other side dishes! Happy tummy indeed ~ 😆
There are still a lot of side dishes that I wasn’t able to take a photo of. These photos were taken before we started dining. Doesn’t the table look quite neat? A typhoon went over our table during our meal and trust me, the table looked opposite of how it is in the photos when we left. Haha! 😂
We ordered one of each type of meat right after we told them which set we wanted. And I was quite disappointed with the quantity of their meat for each plate. We ordered two and three more rounds afterwards.
My fiancé and I both don’t know how to cook, so we had to ask the waiters to cook the meat for us. Their service was really exemplary. Service was quick and they immediately responded to our every requests. I’m not sure if it is because the General Manager was in the house that night. Nevertheless, thumbs up on the service!
Notice why my photos are all so dark? That’s because they have a stage and a huge screen above it that shows KPop music videos while the customers dine. They sometimes have a live band as well but I’m not really sure with the schedule. I had tried dining here with a live band and the music was so loud that the waiters couldn’t hear me calling them, so I prefer dining at KPub BBQ when there ain’t no live band.
Overall, the experience was great! We watched a lot of Korean dramas online so we can relate to the Kpop music being played in the background. The service, as I have said early, is a 10 over 10. However, the food was quite average. The taste wasn’t anything special. It is worth visiting if you love Kpop. There is a Kpop showroom on the second floor. 😉
