Kim's Jjampong Food - Korean Restaurant in Malate, Manila
If you are dying to try out something different yet ultra adventurous and exciting. I'm urging you to give Jjampong a try! I discovered this place through the recommendation of my colleagues, and from then on, it became one of our favorites. In fact, we eat here almost once a week. Hence, I'm here to share with you a few things about this place, and dare you to give it a try.
Kim's Jjampong is a simple and humble restaurant nested along Quintos Street of the "delicate" Malate area. It's just about 300 meters away from Robinsons Ermita, and it got this good seating capacity (holding up to 15 people at a time).
The staff may not appear so friendly at first, but they respond well to your needs, and later, I realized that they are indeed friendly. It's just that they don't smile so often.
Once you decided on what to order, the staff will be putting on the table some appetizers for free. They may serve three mini dishes: (1) pickled veggy, (2) onions and (3) kim chi; however, the kim chi may not be always available. All of these come with a bean paste sauce that is sweet and tasty where you dip (1) and (2).
Bokjambong (Jjampong and Fried Rice) || P300
An order of this dish comes with this special veggies in sweet bean sauce. You may not believe it, but I really love this side dish! I usually mix this with the fried rice, and sometimes together with the soup of Jjampong. I really don't know how you usually eat this, but I'm loving it this way.
Now, the Jjampong may be extremely spicy for first-timers. However, for those who are used to eating spicy dishes, it would be tolerable. Still, there would be a playful heat that will spice things up, so it pays off to be ready. Also, a good thing about this dish is the generosity of the ingredients or "sahog". This makes it even more sulit!

The Jjampong here in this Korean restaurant is indeed very much promising. I can't say that this is the best I tried, since this is the only one that I had so far. Still, I love how simple the place is, and how interestingly spicy the jjampong was. Plus, I love their fried rice that I love pairing with the soup. Again, I'm urging you to give this place a try!
