Premium Steak and more!
? GEN Korean BBQ House –?
? SM By The Bay, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City
? Date for Two: 1488+ Unlimited 35 Premium Meats and Seafoods
? Total: P2976
SM By The Bay gets crowded for good reasons – the refreshing sound of the water, family-friendly amusement rides, and most importantly – buffets! With a long selection of familiar names in the eat-all-you-can community, one foreign newcomer stood out, and it features a crowd favorite, Korean BBQ. Gen Korean BBQ House originated from the U.S. and they opened their first branch in Asia here in the Philippines. All meats were imported from the U.S. so expect the highest quality of food here.
Gen is dim-lighted, something different from its neighboring restaurants that’s bursting with lights. It has this electric retro vibe spacious enough to host huge number of patrons. Each table has its privacy, with a maximum of 8 carnivores can comfortably sit.
We went all in and tried their most expensive promo, the 1488+ Unlimited 35 U.S. Premium Meats and Seafoods. This also comes with bottomless wines, cocktails, beers, sodas, and juices.
The banchan selection was not that much but was just enough. We’ve planned to focus and reserve the space of our tummies for the meats after all. 35 whopping meats, guys!
Let the grillin’ begin!
Although there’s a lot to choose from , we’re pretty sure we won’t be able to try out everything. We’ve had the Premium Steak, Gen Yangnyum Galbi, Red Wine Samgyupsal, Hawaian Bacon, Samgyupsal, Cajun Shrimps, and Garlic Chicken. We also got several salads and greens for the vegetable platter.
Actually, upon grilling, there were a lot of chances that we never got to identify which is which, though notable meats we’ve adored were the Premium Steak, Red Wine Samgyupsal and Garlic Chicken. We still wanted to have more refills of these but we’re already full.
Another thing, we definitely took advantage of the bottomless wine. We cannot count how many times we got this refilled. That much, for sure! We’ve also tried one of their cocktails but we still went back for the back. It wasn’t that spectacular but it was good enough to pair with the Premium Steak and the other meats.
And oh, we’re so pleased with the band! We think this was the highlight of our night as well. Their service needs improvement though. We were seated somewhere in the far corner of the resto so we were not seen well by their servers. Better to sit next to the cashier or near the kitchen. But hey, we’re close to the band so yey! No more complaints. Lol, kidding.
Value for money: This may seem too expensive than usual. However, if you’re a premium bbq/steak aficionado, you’ll get your money’s worth here. You might even find this one cheaper than the expensive steak houses and grills. If you’re craving for just samgyupsal, then the usual kor bbq places might be just for you.
