Mabini Street, Baguio City
Korean and Japanese Cuisine

I love Korean food. I'm no Korean food expert but here in Baguio, I think Hodori is the most Filipino tongue friendly Korean restaurant. They also serve Japanese dishes and they're quite good, too. They serve 4 side-dishes and they're refillable.

Here are my favorites:
Porkchops - I don't know why they call it porkchops. They're not really porkchops.They're pork belly (bacon) with yummy spicy stuff. It's about 220Php. It already comes with a cup of glutenous rice. One serving is good for 2-3 people.

Tansuyuk - It's the Korean version of sweet and sour pork. They put chunks of apples in it. They really have a big "small" serving which costs around 300Php. This is good for 3-4 people. They also have a large "large" size which is good for 4-6 people. This is around 550Php.

Bulgogi - Korean beef barbecue. The beef is really soft and bursting with flavors. A dish for 2-3 people is also about 220Php and it also comes with glutenous rice.

Samgyeopsal  - Well, what's a Korean restaurant without this slices of fatty pork belly!? The cooking part adds fun to the dining experience. They also serve garlic, green peppers, sesame oil and other sauces and spices that you can all put together with the cooked bacon strips ... wrap them with a lettuce leaf and swallow the whole chunk up. 

Chicken Tepanyaki - This is my favorite among their Japanese dishes. They put lots of mushrooms in it which really gives the dish its scrumptious flavor. It costs 180Php per serving which is good for 2-3 people.

Crunchy Tuna Maki - It's really crunchy and yummy. I think it's the best among all their rolls. 8 pieces costs 100Php + (sorry, I forgot the exact amount

The waiters and waitresses here are really friendly. When we eat here and they're not quite busy, they refill our side dishes every 5 minutes!!!! But even if they're very busy, they serve every customer courteously and graciously. I really like their service here.

It's located in a street that's connected to Session Road, so it's very accessible. It's not that big but each table is spacious enough. The seats are so comfy.

 Here's my OC King enjoying the rice!!He's already satisfied with just rice and side dishes. :)
Look at the last two pictures. That's my empty plate!!!!
