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.

Getting there

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.

What’s available?

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

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.

Odeng

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.

Chapchae

Korean chewy, glassy noodles. It usually comes with slices of beef bulgogi and vegetables, and sprinkled with sesame seeds.

Kimbap

 

Kimchi

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.
