We finally got to try Santorini.
It is still a big mystery to me why I never discovered this Korean place when I was in college. It’s along P. Noval Street, near the corner leading to Delos Santos. Well, I wasn’t really aware of hole-in-the-wall places near the campus and my usual meal was Jollibee’s C3 (Chicken and Spaghetti).
Santorini is a KPop fan’s dream. There’s a TV that endlessly plays “perfs.” No wall is left bare. Everywhere I look, there were posters of Korean performers. Customers can leave notes as well; some of them were professing their love for their idols.
It would have been a typical Korean restaurant if not for the posters. I find it cool, actually.
We ordered a bowl each. By the way, it was our second attempt to eat here. The first time we went here, it was closed. So don’t bother checking it out on a Sunday. Lesson learned.
The geek and I both liked the bibimbap over the bulgogi. Both are good but the spiciness of the bibimbap made it more mouthwatering. It’s another mystery to me that chapchae is missing on the menu. Anyway, they serve Korean ice cream as well to complete the experience, I guess?
Next on my list is a place that serves chapchae. But where? Any suggestions?
