Vanj's Birthday at KBOP

Monday, November 7, 2011

We were so happy when we found out Vanjee has returned from China. That means we will be able to hang out and celebrate her birthday here in Manila. My friends were eyeing this deal from Metrodeal. It's a deal for a four-course meal from a Korean resto in Venice Piazza. I remember bringing them to this oh so fine Korean place in Pasay and we totally had a great time. I think they wanted to revive those moments and that's why they chose KBOP. I purchased 2 vouchers and we setup the date.

On the 5th of November we all gathered at KBOP in Venice Piazza. We were expecting a restaurant but found ourselves at a Korean fast food joint.

. . . the fast food ambiance

The voucher we got from Metrodeal was for a 4-course set meal good for 4 persons. Original price was Php1,000 but we only paid for Php499 per voucher. They have 4 different set meals to choose from. Now I'm not sure how to name the dishes here as they were not explained to us. For reference, I've used the voucher to check the name of the dishes based on what they looked like.

Chapchae - Korean glass noodles.

Kimchi dumplings

Tuboo Chorim - Braised silken tofu

Korean Chicken


Our server said this is already 2 servings of samgyupsal. Can you image kung single serving lang ang dish na itech?

Korean Pancake with soy dipping sauce

From all the food served to us, the only dish that striked the most was the Korean dumplings. It was spicy as expected on Korean food. The pancake was also good. Now the rest of them are on the sweet side. There was no oomphs and zing. It's like they're catered to suit the Pinoy taste buds.

Portion size of the dishes were too small. I'd say not good for 4 persons specially if you're a big eater. Yeah, the rice serving was ga-bundok but the dishes? Well, the pictures speak for themselves. So konti and so bitin. Honestly, I'm not willing to spend one grand for this 4 course meal. Enough lang sa Php500. And you know what, during our lunch we saw that they have this 4 course meal promo on going. No need to get a voucher because you can avail of the 50% discount direct from the store. Hay, wala lang. This was a learning experience. At least it killed our curiosity for this Korean resto.

Not so satisfied with the meal, we decided to go somewhere else. Vanj had pre-ordered some cupcakes from Sonja's so off we went to Serendra.

Check out the Smeg fridge behind the counter. It spells a-w-e-s-o-m-e. I'm still dreaming of my red Smeg (see it here) *lol*

Next, we headed to Timezone in Market Market for karaoke. This was another thing we really missed a lot (remembering our providence days) and we have to do this before Vanj leaves the country.

While waiting for our turn at Timezone, we indulged into these artisan cupcakes by Sonja's. They're so pretty to look at I was trying to resist not to eat them but I did it anyway. The icing was too sweet for me. I feel sorry for them. Such a lovely design but have to go to waste. Awww.

The wait is over but Anj, Joy and Rhian have to go. In the end it was just me, Tapioca, Ivy, Jastin and Vanj left. We loaded up our cards with over a thousand bucks to spend on the karaoke machine. Yay!!!

Turns out one thousand was too much pala. We only spent half of it and yun suko na kami hahahaha!!! If Glenn (a.k.a. Videoke King) was with us, I'm sure kukulaning ang 1 kiaw.

. . . Tapioca's time to shine *lol*

Happy Birthday Vanjee!!!!

Wishing you all the best. Good health, successful career and . .. and .... a new boyfriend :-P Love you friend!!!
