Kimstaurant, a time-tested favorite from Bacolod City and known as the best Korean restaurant from the City of Smiles, makes its way to Cebu!
Before anything else, let me share a bit of background if you haven’t heard of Kimstaurant yet. This Korean restaurant was established in October 2010 in the City of Smiles. “Looking back eight years ago, I noticed that there were only a few Korean restaurants there,” Kim shares. “So I decided to put up my own, with the goal for it to be the best Korean restaurant in the city.” Since then, Kimstaurant has become a go-to destination for locals, encouraging Kim to branch out to Cebu. “I confidently know that, just like our main branch, Kimstaurant will be a big success here.”
I got to try a few dishes during our visit and boy I sure can say why this is a big hit at their original city. Everything from the menu was so good as their ingredients are imported fresh from Korea to ensure the most authentic taste.
There is also a varied selection of Yakiniku, including Samgyupsal, Deji Galbi, and Kosal, which diners can eat all they can from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. These come with unlimited servings of side dishes and appetizers, including kimchi.
sizzling stone pot rice mixed vegetables, beef, kotsujang (Korean chili paste), and egg — strikes a mouthwatering balance between sweet and spicy.

Beef Galbi Jjim
Choice of either spicy or regular braised short beef ribs
Kimchi and tofu stew with plain rice
Soy Sauce Chicken
Bonchon-style fried chicken made from a recipe perfected by Kimstaurant’s General Manager, Peter Kim.
Korean-style raw beef with egg. Peter’s personal favorite and my own list of must try! I’m not a fan of raw anything but this taste nothing close to raw at all. Worth the try!
Quick OOTD 😀
