    Our honest review of Romantic Baboy


    I have heard about Romantic Baboy a lot of times because of its quirky name although I have not really had the chance to try it. But beyond a memorable name, it’s the quality of the food in its menu that speaks well for itself.

    Khris and I have been regularly craving Korean barbecue. The taste of thinly sliced and marinated pork and beef, cooked over a grill, and eaten with fresh and crisp lettuce leaves is just unforgettable. Thus, one weekend, we decided to try Romantic Baboy at Ayala Fairview Terraces.


    We arrived there just a little past lunchtime. However, considering the size of the branch, there was already a considerable number of people already waiting for their turn.

    Realizing that the queue would not budge in about an hour or so, we decided to head over to Romantic Baboy at Britanny Square, a 10-minute drive from Ayala Fairview Terraces.

    When we got to Romantic Baboy at Brittany Square, we were excited because there was no line and the server informed us that there will soon be available tables for us.

    We were inside the restaurant after a fair amount of waiting time and, once we were settled in our seats, we wasted no opportunity and already chose the cuts of meat that we would like to sample first.

    There are exhaust pipes installed on each table but since the room is air-conditioned, it was still smoky inside. Since we cannot do anything about it, we just chose a spot in the corner where the smoke was not too dense.

    We loved seeing so many banchan or side dishes laid out on the table. What we usually, order are kimchi, fish cakes, scallions, baby potatoes, and pickled radishes.

    We also love simple dipping sauces like spicy chili paste, sesame oil, and salt with crushed pepper. Anyway, the flavor of the meat would depend on how fresh and how well-marinated it is.

    What is notable about Romantic Baboy was that melted cheese, grilled kimchi, and steamed eggs were readily available beside the grill.

    I tried the cheese but I would much rather use the dipping sauces so as not to overwhelm my palate with too many savory flavors. The taste of the grilled kimchi was not too spectacular either because it somehow dried out.

    On the other hand, the steamed eggs became an instant hit with us. It was light and soft, and fluffy. It did not have too many seasonings, as such, the taste was almost neutral and somehow cut the richness of the grilled meats. It was so good that we requested several refills of the steamed egg.

    Now, on to the mains. We sampled as much meat as we can, which meant all of the selections available on the menu.

    We were a big group anyway so we could easily share the portions with each other. In general, we found the meats to be of excellent quality.

    In particular, what we loved about the meat slices was how flavorful they were; the marinades permeated the meat well resulting in succulent slivers of goodness. Infused with smoky flavors from the grill, the meats were perfect with the lettuce wraps.

    Among the choices, our favorites were the Romantic Bulgogi, Moksal, and the Spicy Beef. After sampling all of the meats on the menu, we settled for the Spicy Beef, our most favorite on the menu, and ordered this until we were full.

    Another notable observation was that the pork slices were not fatty as compared to other Korean barbecue restaurants. It's a little thick though so it needs a longer amount of time to cook.

    The grilled meats went well with the sauces and the fresh lettuce wraps. Kimchi is our favorite side dish in any Korean restaurant and we were just delighted because we can have this unlimited at Romantic Baboy.

    Kimchi does well in cutting the richness of the meats and cleansing the palate, which kept our appetites revved up.

    By the way, we also ordered drinks but take note though that the cost of the refreshments are separate from the P499 price for the unlimited samgyupsal.

    Our verdict


    All in all, we definitely loved our experience at Romantic Baboy. We did not have to wait long to get our tables, so that meant not getting too cranky from hunger.

    Romantic Baboy's price is P499 per head; definitely good value for money for a quality Korean barbecue buffet. The overall vibe is relaxed, so we felt no pressure in ordering food. We were not in competition with other diners to get the attention of the servers, too.

    Speaking of getting the attention of the attendants, I am happy to share that there was no need to shout and strain our vocal cords when requesting orders. They listened well and delivered our orders fast despite the number of diners when we ate here.

    Epilogue


    Romantic Baboy is actually one of our two favorite Korean barbecue restaurants around Metro Manila. We had a nice meal and would surely come back once we have the opportunity to do so.

    Credit cards and senior citizen cards are honored at Romantic Baboy. Seasonal promos are also available at Romantic Baboy so watch out for announcements via their social media accounts.

    Lastly, reservation is not required at Romantic Baboy but we suggest that you call your preferred branch before you go to gauge the availability of tables and seats.
