Bulgogi Brothers now in Manila!

Bulgogi Brothers -53.jpg
The first international franchise of Bulgogi Brothers (with 29 branches in South Korea) finally opened in Manila! :)  

At first, I thought it was just one of those franchises capitalizing on the booming expansion of International Chains here in the metro. I'm usually not a fan of restaurants based in a mall, but the foodies were abuzz with excitement over the opening of Bulgogi Brothers, so I had to see it for myself.

I was happy that our family decided to try it because it was different. I liked the awesome free appetizers they offered, the unique food combinations with their Korean liquor, and the family-friendly nature of the restaurant. I also loved their focus on service (which a lot of other restaurants in Manila need to improve on).

It was during our visit that I learned how to truly appreciate Bulgogi, particularly through the different ways it was prepared and served, plus how it was paired it with various liquors.  

Here are some foodie notes on what to expect at Bulgogi Brothers...
