It happened to be Aubrey’s 19th birthday. So, as a celebration, she invited us to have dinner with her the day after her birthday. 5 invitees and only 2 of us showed up because of the busy schedule because its finals week.
Los Banos, Laguna is filled with lots of restaurant and “tambayan” and “chibugan” place than Calamba. I’m not even surprise that Aubrey Mae wanted to have a dinner celebration there. She kept the place surprise. So none of us invitees had the idea on where we will eat. Tbh, we even got lost going on our destination – Seoul Kitchen.
Getting there was a pain in the arse, especially if you’re not even familiar with the place or if you’re just a visitor. The Seoul Kitchen was so like in a hidden part of this certain subdivision. I will put here the things that might help you to reach the destination:
- Take a jeepney UP College (Kanan or Kaliwa doesnt matter)
- 7/11 Lopez will be your destination. Keep aware of your landmarks: 7/11 will be on your right side, left side is a subdivision then after that was Mercury Drugs. It will be AFTER the Los Banos Doctors Hospital.
- Once your at 7/11 there will be subdivision. Go there and from the first intersection, ask for directions.
I cant help you further because it will only confuse you more than actually talking and personally ask for help.
From Sta Cruz
- Take a bus or a jeepney going to SM Calamba or Crossing Calamba (because as far as I know, there’s no transpo directly at UPLB)
- Jollibee Los Banos will be your destination. Its in an intersection. You’ll see Mang Inasal and Mercury Drug Store.
- Get a jeepney to UP College.
- Repeat Step 3 and 3 on the directions on ‘From Calamba’
Here’s what it looks like from the outside
I had to admit, I was pretty much impressed at the ambiance. There’s even a TV that views all kinds of Kpop music! I feel like Im in Korea! Even though, I have no idea what its like to be in Korea. Lmao
The price was as expected. Its a bit high, but I can assure you that its all worth it. The servings are fair, not too little but I can say, it can fill up your tummy.
Food ranges from 150-200 pesos and the beverage was 60 pesos for cold coffee and thats the cheapest one! So we didnt order any beverage.
(From Left to Right: Pork Bulgogi, Chicken Teriyaki, Vegetable Dumpling, Tuna Kimbap, Cheese Rappoki) All these dishes costs a total of 550 pesos.
The Food was amazeballs and delicious! It tastes authentic. It can surely satisfy your Korean craving.
So if your a fan of Korea, craving for Korean food or just looking for a new kind of taste, make sure to stop by at Seoul Kitchen because it will surely make your time Soulful and So-Full! x
