We’ve been to Sariwon many a times since they opened in 2012 but have not visited recently. We were in the BGC area and suddenly had a craving for Korean bbq and did not want to have smelly clothes so we thought of revisiting Sariwon. They have grills that suck all the smoke thru the table, lots of office people seemed to have the same objective as us during the lunch.
We scanned the menu and saw their new Grill sets, both for 2, 4, and 6 persons. We decided on Signature Grill Set 2 (P1300 or P650/person) which comes with Sariwon Bulgogi, 180g of Yangnyeom Galbisal, 1 mini Haemul Pajeon, 1 Gyeranjjim, 1 Doenjang Chiggae and 2 white rice. This is a really great deal, individual orders of the bulgogi, galbisal and gyranjjim alone come out to P1350 and not including the rice, soup and mini pajeon.
It was our first time to try Yangnyeom Galbisal, it’s basically our favorite galbi in rib finger form. The meat was marinated and grilled perfectly and the whole order was quickly erased from the table.
Lauren has become more adventurous so she tried out the Haemul Pajeon, she liked but removed the scallions. On our next visit, she ordered this again but smartly requested they just remove the scallions before cooking so less hassle for her.
A steaming pot of steamed egg just goes perfectly with smoky barbecue, this one is peppered with scallions and carrots.
I’ve always been a fan of the Sariwon Bulgogi even more than their grilled meats. Lauren was reluctant to try until she saw the beautiful marbled beef and found out they could separate out the vegetables.
The bulgogi takes a while to cook with the final step is them added the bowl of sweet potato noodles, perfect so you can digest the preceding dishes.
Lauren really enjoyed her first taste of Bulgogi including the sweet potato noodles and is now part of her Sariwon meal list.
The Doenjang Chiggae is not the regular size you order but it’s good enough for 2 people for a little spicy soup on the side.
Irene doesn’t eat beef so she went with a hearty bowl of Deung Galbi Kimchi Chigae (P320).
We always look forward to the complimentary dessert they serve at Sariwon, a cup of Shikhye. A cold rice punch that promotes circulation and prevents hangovers and is served after a meat heavy meal.
I honestly felt the set was generous enough for 3 people, at most you just need to order another bowl of rice.
