A korean and mexican fusion – that’s relatively new to me. I imagined bulgogi and nachos, burritos and kimchi. Err – I’d no idea how it’d taste but I was curious to know. I’d tell you upfront I am not a food critic but I love love love food.
I have not heard of Señor Kimchi until I saw it on Facebook. A week after, I found myself heading to the resto (though I initially wanted to eat steak). I ordered a popular Korean dish, Bibimbap, with the expectation, there would be a twist in it (I was expecting the “fusion” to be in every dish.) When the food arrived, I was pleased with the presentation – just like how Bibimbap should be – it looked like a color wheel with thinly sliced carrots, turnip, beets, tomatoes, red onions, rice, beff, egg, & nori toppings & cabbage underneath. The vegetables gave texture to the dish & the hot/spicy paste that tastes uniquely Korean gave it the boost of flavor, it was the real deal.
Price: PhP 289 – value for money considering how huge the serving is, it’s good for 2.
Rating: 4/5 – I was expecting a Mexican flavor/twist incorporated in the dish but that’s just me.
I also ordered Chimichanga, a known Mexican dish. Basically,it’s a deep-fried burrito – rice & beef wrapped in flour tortilla. The dish looks really pretty & delish & tastes just as delish! Again, I would not consider it a Korean-mexican fusion but I love the crisp & the cheesy flavor. Yum!
Price: PhP 280-290 (I can’t remember the exact figures :D)
Ambiance: 4/5 – the place looks cozy but in my opinion does not imbibe a Korean-Mexican feels
Customer Service: 4/5 – members of the crew were attentive. food was delivered in less than 15 minutes. 🙂
