Refreshing Bingsu

Next to the Philippine’s most popular dessert halo-halo, here is one of my most favorite all-time refresher when the craving hits, which could be anytime. Bingsu is a Korean popular dessert made with shaved ice and topped with different flavors. My favorite at the Zoom Cafe in Susupe is the Coffee Bingsu. The Coffee Bingsu is served with a scoop of ice cream on top with swirls of caramel which makes every bite heavenly delicious....

Solitary dinner at Eden

THE eternal wait for my companion on Saturday night finally drained my last ounce of patience so I drove to Garapan to grab some dinner. I had skipped breakfast and lunch and it was already past 9 p.m. I was ready to sit down at any restaurant to get some food when I remembered that I had not check out Eden Restaurant located just across from the Hyatt....

A cold or hot pot of bibimbap

SOME like it hot, served on a sizzling stone pot. Some like it cold, served fresh and ready to eat. I had never considered bibimbap — a signature Korean dish with mixed vegetables, sautéed and seasoned, sliced or ground meat, and fried or raw egg at the bottom — a favorite dish, until I got to know it better not too long ago. One of my buddies always...

Steaming hot dinner in a garden restaurant

I HAD my eye on this restaurant in a two-story building on the right side of the road just before the former labor department’s building in San Antonio for a long time but didn’t get the chance until last Saturday evening. It was almost 9 p.m. and I was on my way to cover an event but decided to stop by and check out what the place had...

Nam Dae Moon: Newest Korean restaurant in Garapan

WHAT I saw as I opened the door were the silver dome shape lights suspended in chains from the ceiling, rows of funnel-shaped silver tubes hanging over the tables and rows of yellow plastic flowers that served as partitions for the tables. A wait staffer guided me and a friend to one of the long tables and I learned the funnel-shaped tubes were exhaust for the grills on...

Early dinner at Four Season Restaurant

AN early dinner was something that was not in our plans when a buddy and I drove around the island a couple of Saturday afternoons back, but we found ourselves pushing the door of this new green-painted Korean food outlet on Beach Road called Four Season Restaurant. The sight of immaculate tables and chairs greeted our eyes as we came in and headed for the farthest table at...

Bento boxes for a hearty lunch

SCOUTING for a place to get some lunch yesterday led me and three buddies to this restaurant located beside Ebisuya Inc. in Susupe, a place known for its variety of Korean bento boxes — Dae Jang Kum Restaurant. A wait staff member guided us to a table for four in the center of the main dining room and handed us a couple of menus. All of us decided...

Grilled duck meat and spicy fried chicken at Guk Bob House

THE small slices of duck meat sizzled in their juices and blended with the aroma of grilled onions and garlic on our table. I and my two out-to-eat buddies had not tried duck meat before so we were kind of excited. We were at Guk Bob House, a Korean restaurant that we had been eyeing for some time. Last Friday, we finally checked out what the placehad to...
