Wellbeing Ssambap Korean Restaurant: Getting Wrapped Up in Healthful Eats
As promised, here are the details of our latest(ish) eatscapade. (Wee, another portmanteau ‘invented’! \m/)
Well into the evening, Race and I arrived at the Korean restaurant that is Wellbeing Ssambap. (It’s easier to see the ‘Korean Restaurant’ sign from Leonard Wood so I thought it was just named like so. *hihi I learned its real name from the menu.) A brighter and wider Dugout, Race noted that we took our place at the same table we did before. Surreal? Nah. =b
I mused at the menu, which had a nice Egyptian themed covering before looking inside. Everything was in Korean characters. Don’t worry though, there’s one in English and our attendant was well versed enough to translate. (Thank you so much, Sir!) Ssambap C was our dinner of choice and a bowl of pork bone soup (the reddish one on the soup menu).
It took awhile for our order to be set up and when one of our attendants wheeled in a trolley of dishes, I understood why. They gave us a little pot of tea to start the meal with and it was soon followed by bowls of pumpkin porridge/hobak-jook, a plate of thin but fluffy Korean pancake/pajeon and a bowl of salad. When our seasoning/dip for the samgyupsal (two kinds) was laid on the table, I was reeling from astonishment. *shyeew
And then our bowl of pork bone soup came. Jeepers! I was thinking we wouldn’t be able to finish everything in this meal. =D
I laid off the tea to ensure I wouldn’t get water full. I spooned away at the sweet porridge and dipped slices of the pancake into the sauce. I got a saucer full of salad and crunched away, and then I took a sip from the broth in the pork bone soup. Out of everything I put into my mouth, it was only the pumpkin porridge and the pajeon that had strong flavors. Ms. Salty strikes again *hee, looking for a saltshaker… but there wasn’t one in sight. The soy sauce dip as well as the ssamjang became my go to seasoning. I just had to keep in mind, it’s all about wellbeing here, it’s all about wellbeing. *giggles
While I was busy taking photos and tasting our starters, Race went on grilling duty. (He was tasting and chomping away too, in between turning the meat pieces over. Me no slave driver. *heehaha) How nice the slices of meat here. ^^, This is the only Korean resto I know that served them with spigs of an unidentified herb.
As the meat’s sizzling and cooking, let’s take a look at one section of the ssambap restaurant. It’s pretty much the same at the section we sat at, just the glass case of sports collectibles and memorabilia was gone. They opened up what I think used to be the living space. There, you could dine on samgyupsal (or galbisal, etc.) sitting cross-legged on the floor.
A Korean dining experience would never be complete without the banchan … and kimchi. (“,) It’s here that I saw some side dishes that I haven’t seen in a long time. Yes, sweet and spicy dilis! Eeeiii, bean sprouts! The beetroot and the lemongrass (we think those were) side dishes were new to us. Fun!
X marks Wellbeing Ssambap Korean Restaurant for good food in Baguio. It’s the source for a true ssambap special – this is our third favorite place for samgyupsal now. Another success of a Baguio eatscapade! Okay, everyone, let’s wrap it up!
Food: (No pajori here but it won’t be missed with the stuff in the set) and for the freshly harvested veggies. (Watch out for the bitter leaves – best stuffed with lots of rice, meat, banchan … and wrapped again with a bland leaf) It’s from their own farm in Irisan, eatsplorers. Impressive.
Price: Race thinks that they meant per ORDER there on the menu, and not per head. That’s three starters, samgyupsal set, side dishes, rice, and tea. (Oh, their service water here is bottled water. Nice right? That’s one of the reasons for the perfect rating for service.) We just paid P550 for this sumptuous meal. In the case of the stuff on the soup menu, I’ll give for that specifically.
