Newest in Town: Bronze's Shabu Shabu , Samgyupsal @ Marikina!

by - April 29, 2015

I do have a soft spot when it comes to hole in a wall restaurants. Not only they offer relatively affordable rates, but they also offer the same comfort foods like others.
Bronze's Shabu Shabu and Samgyupsal is the newest food stop that you should visit when doing a Marikina Foodtrip!
When you are looking for affordable Korean Eats, better put this on your list!
Located in Bronze Street in SSS Village Marikina, it's actually pretty easy to spot on since it's in the nearest part of Bronze street. It's a quaint garage that was turned into a Shabu Shabu place.
Wooden interiors and DIY decors that was personally handmade by the owners.
You may noticed that the place is small but surprisingly, the place is comfortable and well ventilated.
Their place is a good "tambayan" area where you can simply bring your bike and park it inside together with your friends.
Another eye candy in the area is this tarpaulin that posters different university hymn and sayings. We were personally assisted by one of the owners Aya. She is very bubbly and fun to be with. I only wished that most of the customers can meet Aya. She'll make your stay a whole lot of fun!
They only have one all around server and he still managed to keep the surroundings in place. Their menu is simple and straight to the point. No frills and drills, and yet offering satisfying dishes that are pretty affordable.
Shabu Shabu (195 pesos) - A whole set of Shabu Shabu was composed of an assortment of veggies, meats, noodles, and seafood balls that was internationally sourced.
One serving is good for 3 persons already! You have the option to cook it by yourself, or they will cook it for you! If you don't know how to prepare these, then just ask for their assistance. :)
Each table is equipped with portable gas stove where you will cook your own shabu shabu. I actually pretty liked it since it gives us interaction with our foods.
In less than 10 minutes, your Shabu Shabu is ready to go! Mind you, this is very very filling!
Samgyupsalsal (195 pesos) Sliced Pork with fatty trimmings, served with kimchi, thinly sliced garlic, green chili, samjang, and sorta oil with sesame seeds.
I will appreciate more if the fatty trimmings were much softer. :)
All you have to do is wrap the pork on their greens, put some dippings then BAMMM!!!
And oh, it was also served with flavored "dilis". Some preferred it to put inside the wrap, while others opt to eat the dilis separately.
Shrimp by the Pound (245 pesos) There are two varieties of this one. The New Orleans Flavor, and Lemon Butter. Both of the shrimps were good. We initially thought that our votes will go to Lemon Butter but It was overcooked for a tiny bit.
 However, the New Orleans is simply irresistible. The sweet, and mildly spiced shrimps were really the bomb!
Baked Mussels (155 pesos) I was longing for some good 'ol mussels since I was terribly disappointed with Dampa sa Libis version, but here they do it really good. Huge and juicy mussels, generously top with melted cheese, garlic and butter.
 Heheh. Make sure to have photo op here! It's way better at night when the lights were turned on! :)
 Vietnamese Coffee (155 pesos) - And Oh! Make sure to order this one! Oh God, this is really addicting! For coffee lovers out there, YOU MUST NOT LEAVE THIS PLACE WITHOUT TRYING THIS ONE! #CapslockParaIntense You will surely not regret! (I wished it's available for take outs!) :(
Together with Aya's lovely kids, this place is surely a thumbs up! This place is surely a gem that needs to be noticed. Good food, affordable price, what more can you ask for?
