I heard about this place a few months ago when a blogger post went viral. Being a fan of South Korean street food, I knew I just had to go there. I never really found the time to actually go, and had forgotten about it, to be honest. Until a friend shared it to me again and asked if we could try it. So we did.
As you can see from the map, it’s quite right in the middle of a very Korean area in Makati Avenue. A lot of Korean restaurants everywhere! It’s not really surprising to see a Korean street food stall anywhere there. You can probably have your street food or Korean barbecue fix from any of the restaurants surrounding the mall, but if you are on a budget and need something a little cheaper, going to this food court in A. Venue is your best bet.
They offer a variety of Korean food, even Samgyupsal. However, we did not try that and just opted to go for our usual favorites.
Tteokbokki is my favorite street food ever. Ironically though, I first had a taste of this when I was in Australia eating at Gami. Although the one at A. Venue was just quite alright, not really awesome. It didn’t have spring onions, or if there were, I could barely taste it.
Second favorite! I remember Autumn of 2016, my friend and I ate like maybe 5 servings each of Odeng when we went to Hanok Village. It’s soooo yummy! Odeng is fish cake on a stick served in tasty warm soup.
Korean chewy, glassy noodles. It usually comes with slices of beef bulgogi and vegetables, and sprinkled with sesame seeds.
I didn’t try both the kimbap and kimchi as I am really not a fan. But they are available there just in case you wanted to know.
I am definitely going back there if I lived somewhere near. But I don’t. So probably not. Hahaha.. I think I’m gonna have to look for cheap Korean street food near my place as this one is really out of the way. But I’m glad I went though.
