KIWA Solaire: Finest Korean Barbecue Grill in Manila! @SolaireResort

KIWA Korean Grill-42.jpg

KIWA is an authentic, fine dining Korean Grill by the Kung Bok Kung restaurant group. The name “Kiwa”–the traditional Korean roof tile–was used in Manila so that it can be easily pronounced by Filipinos while still highlighting its Korean roots. 

The restaurant is best known for its authentic charcoal-grilled seasoned beef ribs and Korean dishes cooked by world-class Korean chefs. They use an underground exhaust system so that you won’t get any smoke stains on your shirt.

For Korean food lovers, this is a must-visit restaurant at Solaire resort.
