Cuore Buffet: Everything Korean Cuisine Under One Roof
Do you like Korean food?
Sure, there are Korean dishes that are an acquired taste but then there are some of them that are just like Filipino food, e.g. chapchae and bulgogi. Essentially, I’m talking to the foodies who had Korean food and like everything, if not, most of it. A new establishment has opened serving Korean food on buffet and at Cuore Buffet, you need to like Korean cuisine enough if you’re going to get any kind of value for your money. =D
The restaurant opens at 11:30 for the lunch buffet and 5:30 for dinner. When P3 +1 were there, we had to wait a little while for the buffet to start. The wait wasn’t a big deal at all when we came in and saw the spread. I was thoroughly impressed! They had chapchae and bulgogi, as mentioned above; different kinds of side dishes (my favorites: the sayote based one, the sugar glazed potatoes, and the egg rolls), other viands like tteokbokki, pajeon and some I didn’t know the name of, fruits (we started with orange rings and then ended with a kiwi ring…emphasis on A *heeharhar. That story later.), soup, and even samgyeopsal frying to one side of the restaurant.
As small as the establishment looks, don’t worry, there are more seats upstairs. However, a piece of advice to you, Korean food monger: The best seats in the house are actually on the first floor. (You can opt to sit at their tables outside, across the Army Navy ‘bunker’.) This is where the buffet tables are set up. The arrangement on the second floor is really nice, mind you but if you’re that far from the buffet spread, it’s good too, to have sensible shoes on so that you can go up and down the stairs easily.
At our visit to Cuore Buffet, we scheduled lunch together with the city’s councilors (totally by chance) and naturally, we were meant to sit upstairs. =b I/P3+1 realized that day that we didn’t know anything about eating buffet style. We got our own plates of food thinking we’d stair master our way to trying everything available on the buffet table. The people at the next table unknowingly taught us the right way to do it. They got plates and plates of food when the buffet opened and they were set for the whole meal. We learned our lesson. Thanks people in the next table for teaching us that technique. Oh yeah, before you start doing what they did, take note, there’s a no leftover policy at Cuore Buffet. That’s P300 for the stuff you don’t finish. Careful, careful. ^^,
Although we didn’t get to sample the samgyeopsal (We have Wood Nymph for that) and the soup, we enjoyed the sumptuous meal. One of the perks of our Baguio food quest is we get our fill of each other’s company as well. (“,)
When the lunch buffet was almost done, P3 was left on the second floor with another group of people. (Race had to get to work.) One of the staff called us down for a lunch cap of fruits and when Karla drew the short stick and went down to get some *hihi, the man from the other group, took all but one kiwi ring. We were left with a plate full of orange slices and a solitary kiwi. ’Si Sir, nahiya pa’… left us the ‘dyahe piece’ =)) *snicker snicker
We then had the place to ourselves and took the opportunity to document the second floor scene. Thanks to Joan for taking our photos. In summary, we had a good Korean lunch (a lot of it, I’ve never seen so many dishes at one time…and I used to work at an English academy for Koreans (“,)), and we had a great time at Cuore Buffet.
X marks Cuore Buffet for good food (Everything Korean cuisine under one roof) in Baguio.
Price: but this depends really on how much you can consume in one sitting. =b If for P399 (that’s what we paid then), you got plates of everything, whether you’re sitting at a table on the first floor or the second, that’s a good deal.
You might want to take advantage of their promo that lasts until the end of December 2012 – it’s P299 for the Korean buffet.
