Can't Wait For Kalbi!

I'm overweight! I gained 10 lbs since 2010 and I can't help it. I love eating. Specially when I am busy and stressed. I know it's kinda bad for my health but then again, the only way to compensate every busy hours and drilling task is to pamper myself with food.

Anyway, I found a new healthier option to satisfy my craving for food. Dig this, an East-meet-West fusion of flavor and taste and cheaper! Mind you - it may look like another fastfood chain but then again, check their menu and you will be amazed with what they have to offer. Kalbi in Libis is what I am talking about.

In Korean, Kalbi means grilled beef short rib. In Manila, Kalbi is the first and only restaurant to combine and offer the best of the Korean and Mexican worlds. Located at the 2F Food Junction of Citywalk 2 in Eastwood, Libis, Kalbi is the perfect destination for indecisive and experimental eaters like me hehe.

Here are some of my fave dish from this Korean-Mexican resto:
Kalbi Burito

Kalbi BBQ Tacos - A choice of marinated beef short ribs, miso glazed chicken, fried pork cutlets or other fillings topped with melted mozzarella, kimchi lettuce salad, cucumber and corn salsa, toasted sesame seeds and a homemade specialty sauce of your choice all layered on top of a soft tortilla shell.

BBQ Burritos - A choice of marinated beef short ribs, beef bulgogi, garlic prawns or other fillings with melted mozzarella, kimchi lettuce salad, cucumber and corn salsa, toasted sesame seeds and kimchi fried rice served with sesame mayonnaise and a spicy salsa roja all wrapped in a soft tortilla shell.

Kimchi Quesadilla - Thinly sliced bacon strips fried with kimchi and lettuce and topped with melted mozzarella and cheddar inside a crispy fried buttered tortilla.

Kalbi BBQ Burrito Bowl - A choice of thinly sliced marinated beef strips, 6 hour braised pork or other toppings  served with a fresh cucumber salad, kimchi fried rice and toasted sesame seeds.

Kalbi Potato Wedges - Thick cut potato wedges deep fried until golden brown and seasoned with a dash of tangy kimchi flavoring.

From the kitchens of two local and internationally trained chefs, Anderson Sambar and Jerome Lim, Kalbi was born from their hungry stomachs and love of dining out. “Our inspiration was originated from the local dining experience in California. We took the concept and made it fit for Filipinos, which meant more home-style dishes with rice.”

“Without sacrificing quality and still keeping budget in mind, Kalbi is the perfect spot to dine at to ease a grumbling stomach and wallet. Kalbi offers meals for as low as P80, which includes your choice of meat, soup, drink and unlimited Kimchi fried rice. With Kalbi’s large serving size, meals are more than enough to keep your tummies happy for the entire day,” Sambar added.

So, why not have the best of both worlds and enjoy a Korean-Mexican treat prepared fresh for you at Kalbi. What are you waiting for? Hehehe.. I heard they are opening soon in Makati. I really really really can't wait!
