Seoul Ga is one of the few Korean restaurants in Davao City. I visited the place December last year and went back a couple of times because the food and service is great.
The food at Seoul Ga is delicious, the servings large enough for two, and the prices very reasonable. They don’t skip on the banchan, serving six kinds of banchan with your order. And it’s always a delightful mix of sweet, spicy, and salty. I remember having their purple yam (or was it a purple sweet potato) and I was like…Lordy, this is heavenly! They offer free refills, too.
During my visits at Seoul Ga, I have tried a number of their dishes. I wasn’t able to list down everything but here are a few of them:
- jjampong (spicy noodle soup), P160
- tteok bokki (stir-fried rice cakes), P180
- samgyeopsal (grilled pok belly strips), P320
- japchae (stir-fried sweet potato noodles), P280
- yukgaejang or yukejang (spicy beef and veggie soup), P280
- dak bulgogi or chicken bulgogi (marinated barbecued chicken), P280
- jajangmyeon (noodles in black soybean sauce), P160
- patbingsoo (shaved ice and fruit dessert), P140
I like everything I had at Seoul Ga Korean Restaurant but my favorites are the jajangmyeon, tteok bokki and samgyeopsal.
A serving of Seoul Ga’s delicious jajangmyeon is large enough for two. And the price is very reasonable, considering a bowl of jajangmyeon costs around P220 – P280 at another Korean resto. I don’t know if their special offer is still on but they used to sell the jajangmyeon at half the regular price during lunchtime.
Their samgyeopsal, too, is worth trying out. It is very affordable at P320/order. The samgyeopsal is served with the usual accompaniments – lettuce, garlic, onions, ssamjang, kimchi, sesame oil, and seasoned shredded green onions. I tell you, putting some of the shredded green onions in your lettuce wrap really makes a difference!
Another favorite is their tteok bokki, a perfect combination of sweet and spicy. I don’t think I’ll ever get enough of this chewy snack. A big serving of tteok bokki costs around P600 at Manna (formerly Sigol Bap Sang) so I was surprised when I found out that Seoul Ga priced theirs at P180/order. Of course, the serving size is smaller but I think it’s just perfect. Anyway, tteok bokki is meant for snacking or as sides so you won’t want to have too much of this dish. Unless, of course, you are carbo-loading and in dire need of sugar rush.
I have included more pics of some of the dishes I tried at Seoul Ga restaurant. It’s just too bad that I wasn’t able to take pictures of the samgyeopsal and tteok bokki. I’ll just update this post with new pics if I find time to visit the restaurant again.
Seoul Ga Korean Restaurant is located at the Victoria Plaza Compound, J.P Laurel, Davao City.
