Eating out: Kogi (Eastwood)
So after going on Carlos Celdran’s fabulous Imelda Tour, F. and I met up with M. and Y. for dinner at Kogi in Eastwood. I already had a tiny sandwich from KFC earlier because I was starving, but I thought I’d have something light while they had dinner. I ordered the kimchi pancake (around PhP 130+), because it was the first time I was in a Korean restaurant that had it on their menu, and I’d always wanted to try it. It was so good! Too bad I couldn’t finish the whole pancake because I had already eaten earlier, but the guys helped finish it off.
In true Korean fashion, it was served with some side dishes.
F. had the crab roll (around PhP 200). The whole roll is quite large, enough for a meal. I remembered to take a photo of it before the last piece was gone. It was also quite good. I wasn’t a fan of Korean “maki” dishes, because all the ones I’ve had were made with vegetables and were rather bland. But this one tasted like a California maki, but a bit different.
They also had Korean ice-cream sandwiches and ice pops. I had the chocolate ice-cream sandwich, but I forgot to take a photo. I wish I had more room for another dish or two, but I would have to try the other dishes next time I’m at Eastwood. The ambiance was quite nice. The interior was clean, gleaming, and brightly lit. Also, they played k-pop — but at such a low volume, I could barely make out the songs. Of course, it didn’t matter, as my friends and I talk too much over meals anyway.
