Yoogane in the Philippines

There are no known Korean restaurants around Tomas Morato other than Silla right around the Tomas Morato Rotonda (beside Chowking).

It's a good thing Yoogane, a franchise from Korea, has opened its doors at Il Terrazzo. They are known for their Dak Galbi, a simple dish comprised of stir-fried diced chicken in chili-based sauce, along with cabbage, sweet potato and rice cakes. We skipped this because we didn't know at that time, and most probably the people I was with won't enjoy the spiciness of it.

The restaurant has a unique design to it. Colourful murals decorate the walls over a mostly wood-brown theme. The adjustable copper exhausts are a stand-out as well.

Slightly covered booth seating is available for people who want more privacy.
Complimentary Water
And the banchan (side dishes) are served:
Anchovies and Cabbage Salad
Seasoned Bean Sprouts, Kimchi, Radish and Carrots
First up is the Marinated Bulgogi Fried Rice, under the Main Dishes category. That time, the operations manager took charge of preparing this in front of us. 
Then comes the rice:
We added two orders of Mozzarella cheese for this, which were included last.
The manager was sweet enough to have formed a cute heart shape for it.
Bulgogi Fried Rice [Php 230] plus Mozzarella Cheese [Php 80]
(this is two orders of it)
As expected, the rice tasted good. It's good enough on its own.

Other dishes we tried:
Haemul Pajeon (Mixed Seafood Pancake) [Php 170]
The chap chae was very savory and full of flavor.
Chap Chae (Glass Noodles Sautéed with Beef and Vegetables) [Php 230]
I can say that for the beef as well. The beef short ribs are marinated overnight in sesame oil and soy sauce, with added scallions, garlic and sugar.
Galbi Gui (Premium Beef Short Ribs) [Php 370]
Served with Lettuce and Dips 
We were glad to have been served Yakult after our yummy meal, great for those who actually went for the spicy Dak Galbi. I'm looking forward to going back and trying it out.
