Kpub BBQ Meat Review - Taguig

Fancy some eat all you can korean marinated BBQ meat? Head over to Kpub BBQ at 28th Street cor. 5th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. You cannot miss its big signage and dazzling ligts <during the evening>. Since the place is usually full or have events, its best to call ahead of time and reserve nice seats. You may call +63.2.847.1961, +63.2.847.3098. You can also check out their page for more information.

So whats so amazing about this place? Remember my old post about Don Day? They are both unlimited pork/beef for a affordable price. But the main differences between the two are the QUALITY of meat, TASTE of meat, PRESENTATION of meat, AMBIANCE of the place, and mechanics on how the unlimited meat works. For Don Day you pay PHP 300 and you can stay there whole day. For Kpub BBQ, you pay PHP499 <stay for 2 hours> or PHP899 <stay as long as you want>. I would say its because of the location and the demand, that is why they have to limit the people to just 2 hours.  We chose the PHP499 since I cannot eat that much meat. 2 hours is a long time!

So the difference between the PHP 499 and PHP 899 set menu is the number of meat you can choose from. These are all cooked using a smokeless grill. The PHP499 set menu only allows you to choose from:
Ssam gyup sal (pork belly)
Dae pae ssam gyup sal (thinly sliced pork belly)
Yangnyum samkyupsal (sweet n'spicy pork belly)
Daeji kalbi (tender pork marinated in soy and garlic)
Dak bulgogi (marinated chicken fillets)
Dak kalbi (sweet and spicy chicken fillets)
Chadolbaki (beef sukiyaki)
 whereas the PHP 899 allows you to choose everything on the PHP 499 and the following special meat choices:
Kpub beef kalbi (marinated short ribs)
Kalbi sal (rib finger)
Beef bulgogi (beef in soy and garlic)
L.A. kalbi (cross cut short ribs)
Red wine ssam gyup sal (pork belly marinated in red wine)
then both have the following complimentary food to go with it:
Banchan (assorted side dishes)
Ke ran ggim (steamed eggs)
Kimchi pajeon (kimchi pancakes)
Mixed salad greens with house dressing
Choice of kimchi fried rice or steamed rice
Soup of the day
Shike :sweet healthy rice drink

But besides the unlimited meat option, they also have ala carte food, bar chows, and drinks. People usually go here for the live music and unlimited meat. Honestly, the meat are so well marinated that you can eat them as is...but the sauces are also good that you have to try it. My favorite is mixing the sweet and the spicy meat sauce. To add to that, the ambiance of the place is really amazing; good place to hang out with friends and listen to live music or chat over a grill. The place and utensils look clean and I really appreciate that, worth the money I paid for.

Overall, my friend and I was able to stay for 2 hours with a really full belly. We managed to eat a lot of steamed eggs and about 20+ plates of beef sukiyaki. Trying to maximize our money's worth. I think the PHP 499 is reasonable enough since their beef sukiyaki is good, PHP899 is a bit of an overkill for me since all I will be eating is meat.
