Chung Mi Rae Korean & Chinese Restaurant

Its not a surprise that a lot of Korean restaurants have sprouted all over the Metro. Aside from the influx of Koreans in the Philippines, Korean cuisine is also one of the more interesting and diverse food to have invaded our country.

Still in the quest for the best Korean restaurant in the country, DB suggested we go try out Chung Mi Rae Korean & Chinese Restaurant.

On the table

Complimentary rice tea was served as soon as we got to our seats.

Kimbap is quite like Japanese's Futo Maki.

I was kind of looking forward to the appetizers that I can't stop glancing on the next table.  So when the waiter served these to us, I had to ask him how come we only have three appetizers.  He told us that its not included on the dishes we ordered.  Anyway, since our orders were already placed and we cannot change them anymore, we just ate the Kimbap while waiting for the Yangnyeom Fried Chicken.

Greens with mayonnaise and ketchup, which sounded err weird so I passed.

Radish was left untouched.

Kimchi was spicy as usual.

Miso Soup was tasty.

I've been craving for Bonchon for quite some time now and when DB told me that this is the original Korean Fried Chicken, my taste buds suddenly went all crazy and excited!

Yangnyeom Fried Chicken.  I ate like four to five pieces, its so good!  Crunchy on
the outside but tender and juicy on the inside, just the way I like it.

Sweeter, more garlicky and sticky version as compared to Bonchon's fried chicken.

I was so sleepy the entire night so pardon my eye bags.

The owner who also cooks most of the food is a Korean expat, so if you're looking for authentic Korean dishes, Chung Mi Rae is a place worth trying out.  Only downside was that the orders took forever to arrive (to think that only four tables were occupied) and the waiters were nowhere to be found most of the time.  Hope the service would improve soon.
