If you have been in Ayala Center Cebu lately or just passing by, you wouldn’t miss the new place at The Terraces with these big bright lights and I’m sure I’m not the only one who thought that this is just another karaoke place in town! In Kpop theme that is! But let me get this straight! Kpub BBQ is not a karaoke place but a Meat-All-You-Can Restaurant!!
Kpub BBQ is a meat-all-you-can concept restaurant, infused with a Korean Pop Music theme. The first two branches of KPub are located at The Fort, Bonifacio Global City which opened in 2013 and at Trinoma Mall; both in MNL. Now the hippest, coolest and biggest Korean barbecue and meat-all-you-can restaurant in the country, brings downtown Seoul to Cebu as they open their third branch in the Philippines and first in the region.
Authentic Korean barbecue fused with the exciting vibe & energy of KPop is the idea behind this concept restaurant. The expansive 600-square meter space features a main dining hall, six VIP rooms, a smoking area, and an al fresco area that can seat up to 350 people.
KPub has become an alternative venue for corporate gatherings, product launches, big parties and simple get-togethers, events and other group bookings for its distinct dining experience and built-in facilities.
With KPub’s food, high definition widescreen LCD televisions, special VIP sections, imported smokeless grills, and a large stage to house performances and events, KPub is sure to keep you entertained in utmost comfort!
And as one of the bloggers/media who got invited to dine during their media launch, we had the privilege to try our what they had to offer!
KPub’s Meat-All-You-Can restaurant gives diners four packages to choose from — Eat & Run, Eat & Run Level Up, No Limits, and the To the Max — where selected main dishes are barbecued on the smokeless grill on each table, giving customers the fun and excitement of grilling their own food. A selection of popular Korean appetizers is served on the side to complement the meal. A full-serviced set up with side dishes being served ahead and the time starting only when the meat starts grilling, ensures diners get the full experience within a specified time frame.
Enjoy the Eat & Run package at P499+, which includes an hour of unlimited servings of seven signature meat dishes: beef sukiyaki, pork belly, Korean-style bacon, marinated pork belly in sweet and spicy sauce, marinated pork chop, marinated chicken in sweet and spicy sauce, and marinated chicken in sweet soy sauce. The package also includes appetizing side dishes (cabbage kimchi, mashed potato with egg, onions with chili, cucumber kimchi, tofu kimchi and anchovies), choice of kimchi fried rice or steamed rice, steamed egg, kimchi panjeon (Korean pancake), house salad, lettuce, and soup of the day.
Delight the palate with the Eat & Run Level Up at P699+, includes everything on the Eat & Run package with a grilling time of one hour plus the following seafood and meat dishes: garlic butter shrimp, marinated fish fillet, japchae, fish tofu, calamari, lamb chorizo, and pizza (kimchi and cheese, tomato and cheese, bulgogi, or spicy pork).
Indulge in the Meat-All-You-Can experience with the No Limits package at P899+. It has all of the 12 signature meat choices including premium beef selections: the KPub So Galbi (marinated beef short rib), L-A Galbi (marinated cross-cut beef short rib), So Bulgogi (marinated beef slice in sweet soy sauce), and Dwaeji Bulgogi (marinated pork slice in sweet soy sauce), dried seaweed roll with kimchi or beef bulgogi and the additions of bibimbap and Korean ice cream plus unlimited grilling time.
For the ultimate Korean barbecue experience, To the Max (package) at P999+ includes all of the above for two hours plus salmon belly, salmon steak, fresh prawns, crab sticks, tempura platter (ebi, crab, and vegetable), seafood pizza, seafood kimbab, seafood japchae, fried dumplings, assorted vegetables, and fried spring roll.
We also got to try KPub’s own version of Oppa! Chicken, introduced for the first time in the country in its Cebu branch, comes in original, snowing cheese, soy and garlic, and sweet and spicy with more flavors hatching soon. Korean chicken, differentiated by its traditional cooking style of being fried twice for crispier skin that’s less greasy while maintaining its tenderness inside, is fast becoming a local favorite. KPub also offers an ala carte menu of authentic Korean favorites such as bibimbap, japchae, odeng tang, seafood pajeon aside from its Meat-All-You-Can packages plus a selection of cocktails for after hours.
Let me tell you, THIS IS THE BOMB!! Every Chicken flavor was delish!! I recommend you to try Snowing Cheese Chicken first on your visit, especially if you’re a fan of cheese or even if not (like myself), I’m sure you definitely love it! and also the original Fried Chicken ..the soy and garlic ..and the sweet and spicy! Okay ill stop now lol
Built-in Entertainment Facilities
The Cebu branch comes fully equipped with a stage and band set-up, state-of-the-art lights and sound system, and three large LED walls, the biggest in the country, which can be readily used by clients and which air Korean music videos on regular nights, completing the ultimate Korean Pop (K-Pop) experience. Its six VIP rooms can seat up to 10 people and come with its own LCD TV, making it ideal for intimate dinners with friends and family.
