nice two Meat u: treat yourself to premium Korean barbecue



    Please keep in mind though that nice two Meat u does not offer unlimited barbecue; however, you can have as much of the side dishes as you want.

    Location and ambiance


    We tried nice two Meat u at Ayala Malls Circuit during one of those holidays tucked in the middle of the work week. We were so excited to find out that Ayala Malls Circuit is very near our condo so we made it a point to explore it whenever we can. It’s actually a very convenient location for those in Makati as well as in nearby cities.

    Furthermore, Ayala Malls Circuit is not located along a major highway, thus, there is not much traffic buildup. As for nice two Meat u, the restaurant is located at the second level of the mall. We had a hard time looking for it because it was located in a concealed side of the mall. We had to ask around before we finally found it.

    The interior of the restaurant is spacious; the tables are wide and space between other tables is adequate so that diners can comfortable move around. Unlike other Korean barbecue restaurants, there is minimal smoke coming from other tables, probably because meats are cooked in cast iron grills and not in conventional coal grills.

    Overall, nice two Meat u’s vibe is friendly and welcoming.

However, should you decide to eat here, you will be treated to fresh and high-quality cuts as well as flavorful limitless orders of side dishes that we truly enjoyed.

    We were a group of four when we went here so we ordered Pork Barbecue Set C which is composed of samgyupsal (your choice of a big plate of moksal aka neck meat, hangjeongsal aka pork neck, or galmaegisal aka pork skirt), six sides, japchae, banchan, lettuce wraps, and sauces. This set is priced at Php1749.

    We chose moksal and we deemed it a good choice because the meat was almost bite-sized when cooked. It had the right amount of fat to keep the meat moist and flavorful. We had a great time wrapping the meats in lettuce leaves and dipping them in various sauces.

    Speaking of the lettuce leaves, there was not a batch served to us that was not fresh, green, firm, and crisp. That for us speaks volume of how nice to Meat u puts utmost importance on the quality of their food.

    What we also noticed here was the quality of the kimchi – the flavor was intense and went really well with the meats. This is a side dish that Khris and I truly love eating and nice two Meat u serves some of the best kimchi that we have tasted in similar restaurants.

    In any case, if you are used to eating Korean barbecue buffet, you need not worry about the meat not being unlimited because the servings at nice two Meat u is generous.  Aside from the banchan, the japchae’s serving was big so that also filled us up quite well. We were full and completely satisfied after our delicious Korean barbecue lunch at nice two Meat u.

    The food is delicious, the servers were attentive and quick to respond to our requests, and the price was just right. The presentation of the food was also impeccable, so it’s not embarrassing We hoped they would have more branches around Metro Manila so that we can eat here whenever we wanted to.
