“Is this a korean resto?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Our last night in sagada. Me and a couple in our group decided to go food tripping. We tried two resto but their supposed best sellers are not available. We ended up in this resto. The name alone tells you that they specialized in korean food. I ordered kimchi, not available. I ordered beef stew, not available. WHATTTT??? We asked the staff what is available and she replied "spicy chicken". Again, we have no other choice. Our stomach is already crumbling. The food was not spicy at all. Overall, i did not enjoy eating in any resto in sagada.

“Best adobo I've had in the Philippines”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Just know what you're getting into when you come here. The place is VERY "laid back". A lot of hippie / reggae posters on the wall and it definitely as that "vibe" :) The adobo I ordered was sweet, and I really, really enjoyed it!

“I Assumed the Owner Was Korean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

The stew with kimchi tasted exotic-fantastic. The extra saucy adobo, served sizzling in a dolsot (small Korean earthen pot), was a delicious surprise.

The owner, Frank, is a native from Sagada who spent more than a decade working in Japan and Korea. Look for him during your visit and exchange travel stories. You will have your fill of good food and good times.
