Kuya Korea, A New Korean Restaurant in U.P. Town Center

Adding to the lineup of Korean Restaurants in the U.P Town Center is the newly opened, Kuya Korea.  It has 4 variations of the menu to choose from, Korean fried chicken, sandwiches, rice bowls, and noodles.  It is beside Serenitea and faces the Amphitheater.  The restaurant is owned by David Licauco, a GMA 7 artist.

My sister and I tried its rice bowl.  I ordered the salted boneless K-pop chicken, while my sister chose the Bibimbop. The staff was friendly and eagerly answered our questions regarding the menu.

While waiting for the food to be served, I looked around the restaurant's interior.  It was colorful and vibrant.  It lighted my mood after doing hectic errands. It was relaxing as well because it was minimalist.

After a few minutes, the food was served. We were both surprised that the servings were big.  One meal can serve two people. I even helped my sister to finish her bibimbop.

The boneless chicken was juicy inside while the chicken skin was crispy.  It was well-cooked. Salted egg-flavored chicken and kimchi rice complemented each other.

The Bibimbap had a fish cake which was something unique. It was just missing beansprout which I always love in bibimbop.  I hope they will have the option to add an egg someday.

To sum up my experience, I enjoyed the food and definitely will go back to try different K-Pop chicken flavors. The picture below tells everything.
