KPub BBQ is introducing their newest offering, the Bibimbap Lunch Set! You buy any of the dishes below and get a free Bibimbap!
I’ve never been to KPub but I do know that they play Korean music videos all day long. And also, I was amazed by the KPop wardrobe their service staff wears! V modern! I love it. I felt like they were ready to pop some moves anytime. I mean, if they did, I’d join ‘em! I actually miss SNSD.. when they had Sica. Anywayyyyy. Before I get lost into KPop fangirling, here you go:
One of KPub’s private ‘rooms’.
Appetizers: kimchi, mashed sweet potato with corn kernels, spinach in sesame oil. Not in picture is the Korean version of Miso soup, or maybe it’s just Miso soup. This is already a part of the set meal.
Doen Jang Jjigae, P299. Seafood Soybean Stew. Oomph. I loveKkorean soups. My favorite is kimchi stew but this one’s just as amazing. It has squid, scallops and shrimp in it as well as tofu amongst other spices.
Sundubu Jjigae, P299. Spicy Tofu Stew. I’d like to think it’s the spicier version of Doen Jang Jjigae but it seemed to have a different taste. Or maybe it’s overwhelmingly spicy that the savoury bits get overpowered. I prefer the other stew over this but this isn’t bad either, especially when you love spicy food.
Dak Bulgogi, P299. Sweet Soy Garlic Marinated Chicken. Oof. This one’s nice and familiar. It was tender and flavorful.
Jeyouk Bokkum, P299. Spicy Pork. As with most Korean main dishes, this one’s marinated as well. Sweet and spicy thin strips of pork with cuts of vegetables, as well.
So Bulgogi, P299. Sweet Soy Garlic Marinated Beef. Another dish of the same variety and taste, just that, it’s beef. And when it’s beef, it’s great. Okay!
And of course the free Bibimbap that you get by purchasing one of those main dishes listed above! Great deal, isn’t it? This bibimbap was huuuuge as well, I couldn’t finish it. The veggies were fresh which made it all better. I love it when they’re not all soggy. The cucumber in particular was still crunchy.
“Bibimbap is a signature Korean dish. The word literally means “mixed rice”. Bibimbap is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with namul and gochujang, soy sauce, or doenjang, a fermented soybean paste.” Thanks, Wikipedia, a non-trusted source by the academe but still the first resort of students.
The Bibimbap Lunch Set is available Mondays through Fridays during lunch only, at any KPub branch! In Cebu, it’s in Ayala Terraces, beside Fully Booked & Starbucks. Let me know if you’re going to try it! Tag KPub and I on Instagram or on any social media!
