1970 Grill Yakiniku Restaurant



I met up with one of my closest friends since high school. We agreed to meet up in Tomas Morato area. Since I wasn't familiar with the area, I was excited to do a food trip in the area. After walking for quite a long time, this particular restaurant caught my attention: 1970 Grill, which I initially thought was an ordinary cafe. But it was a Korean yakiniku restaurant. :)

I haven't really been to a Korean restaurant (Sambokojin is considered Japanese-Korean). I was quite uncertain with the food since I have low tolerance for uber-spicy food. Anyhoo, I have to give this a try. :)

The ambiance of 1970 Grill is quite simple, everything seems to be in wood (including the displays). The chalkboard located at the farthest end of the resto made it look like a classroom. K-pop music plays in the background. Most of the customers in the resto are Korean, which is a good sign that we were at the right place.




1970 Grill Menu


Appetizers

Kimchi, pickled onions, coleslaw
Steamed scrambled eggs
 We were given complimentary appetizers: coleslaw, pickled onions, kimchi and steamed scrambled eggs. The kimchi's spicy as I expected, so I ate coleslaw and the eggs instead. We were also given Korean miso soup (but I wasn't able to take a picture of it), which is salty and spicy at the same time.

Since my friend had been to the place before, I let her order for us. She ordered Mix Beef for Yakiniku (Php 1200), which has beef belly, sirloin and short rib served with tofu, sweet potato and other vegetables.

The server did setup the portable stove with the grill at our table and willingly cut the beef slab served to us.

We were also given lettuce to wrap the beef with. I was told  that we could ask for additional lettuce in case we run out.

I liked that the place was not too crowded. The staff was accomodating (the server was nice enough to check whether our beef were already cooked). Our order (Mix Beef) was already good for 3-4 people (or a bit more than enough for 2 hungry girls.haha)

I'm looking forward to more Korean adventures. :)

  1. I miss eating korean food; it's just lately that I learned to love kimchi. :)) I used to eat in this place in Makati (forgot the name!) where a lot of Koreans dine as well and their food was also great! Will try this out sometime when I'm in Tomas Morato.

  4. I'll definitely visit this resto once I get home. I love Korean food --it's healthy. And that "kimchi" wow..I so love that. I started liking Korean food way back in 2006 when I used to tutor 2 korean kids in BF Pque.

    One thing I've learned from the mom of Seo See Won was that they don't sacrificed ingredients in food prep. They must get the best of it.

    1. Please do Jay. :) I think it's not really difficult to find Korean ingredients here in Manila since I see Korean groceries almost everywhere. :)

  5. Price may seem steep, but if it's good for 3-4 people, I reckon it's worth it. Hope you could dine here sometime. I miss Morato. Haven't been there in ages!

    1. I agree. We didn't order anything else since the beef was already more than enough for the two of us. :)

  7. I love Korean restos, especially the ones where you can grill meat and wrap it in lettuce with garlic and chili sauce. I noticed that you didn't have the chili sauce in your pics. Wala talaga or you didn't want it? But yeah, I love this! Just the thought makes me drool. So annoying that my eating buddy dislikes it. Haha!

  15. Yep! Medyo pricey sya if hindi ka malakas kumain XD 500-650 kasi sya per person. There are different types of beef, pork, chicken, seafood, salmon, korean side dishes, halo halo etc.

    Wala nga lang nung beef ribs?? Those square ones sa 1970 grill.
