Philippine-ized … Wency’s Style
Let’s face the music … the K-Pop music, that is. =b Baguio’s been invaded by Koreans. Together with their goal of becoming more proficient in English, they brought their music, their telenovelas, and their food along with them.
It’s only natural that we now have a taste for these things. (Cue reminiscing music like Boa’s songs, Dana’s songs, etc. and here I am thinking of the days I hung out at the Hodori noraebang/K-aroke (get it?) with my students. Shout out to Joanne, Alice and John! (“,))
If you’re still in the process of getting on the Geobukseon/Korean turtle ship *hee, and you feel that you can’t take the heat that the most popular Korean dishes are known for, Wency’s is here to give you the Philippine-ized version. Yes, it’s still kimchi, it’s still soondubuchigae with none of the throat burning sensation with every bite. (Wency’s Restaurant also serves Japanese dishes and Philippine favorites. \m/)
For our main meal …
Being in a reminiscent mood, I wanted kimchi chigae. Since that wasn’t available, I went with soondubuchigae instead.
What’s a Korean meal without samgyeopsal? Wency’s serves a Philippine-ized version of that, too.
A smaller serving. (Eating out at Wood Nymph with my students I always marveled at the humongous servings of foodstuff they have. It always got me thinking how a Filipino family could … and would share one bowl of galbitang/beef rib soup for instance and be satisfied. Imagine the savings. *snickers) No pajori (aw, and I love pajori so much) and just a small serving of ssamjang (I should’ve brought the container of ssamjang we have chilling in the ref *heehaha).
Anyhoo, you get what you pay for at P160. =)
X marks Wency’s Restaurant for good food (Philippine-ized Korean/Japanese dishes) in Baguio. Can’t take the heat? Let Wency’s ease you in to the best of Korean cuisine.
