Last weekend, we went to a newly-opened Korean BBQ restaurant in Malate. Last year, we had a staycation at Hop Inn Malate and we had our dinner in Uncle Hwangsojip Restaurant. That time, Fantastic Chef isn’t around yet. What I noticed in Malate was there’s a lot of Korean restos around the area! So if ever you’re looking for a Korean BBQ resto food crawl, Malate is the place to be.


Last August 2017, the restaurant named Galmegi which means seagull then it was changed to Fantastic Chef on January 16, 2019. By the way, all the food is prepared by a Michelin awardee and one of the Korea’s A-list chefs. Her name is Chef Jang Jungyun. So you are secured that all the dishes here are authentic and have good quality.

They also have dessert bar inside the restaurant. Take note that it isn’t included in the package.

I had there sundae that costs 100 PHP. Like how they formed the ice cream. It looks like an isaw, a small intestine of chicken. LOL. But it’s good tho.

Take note also that there’s no time limit here in Fantastic Chef, meaning you can eat all you want! YAY. Just a reminder also that at least a minimum of two persons can avail their unlimited samgyupsal.

Obligatory shot before grilling!

One thing I noticed there was they have a small space inside the restaurant. When we got there, we had to wait for a few minutes before we can start grilling.

I must say, this one is in my top three best Korean BBQ restaurant today! I really love their food presentation. Very classy and looks neat. Not only the food presentation was good. The food itself tasted really good. So flavorful and you can really taste its spices used. I just hope they improve their space to accommodate more people. It is worth the penny guys, you should try it. Look, my friend Jen enjoyed eating here too.

  1. I agree that the food presentation is really gorgeous. Looks neatly stacked and arranged for customers.

    As a samgyupsal fan, what are your considerations for picking a Korean BBQ place? There are lots in the food scene lately, right? Nakakalito na sa dami. What makes a place stand-out for you? :) Me, I’d remember it if the place is clean, serves shrimps and fresh vegetables :)

  3. Wow! Ang sarap sa photos palang! Not a fan of korena food, pero I love their bbq. Malapit lang sa favorite Japanese resto sa Malate (Izakaya Kenta), we’ll try to visit next time :)

  4. uy Malate! It’s been a while since I’ve been there. This gives me an idea on where to take the kids when we go there some time. Sarap tingnan! Would you believe, I’ve never tried any Samgyupsal yet, and my husband’s been egging me to try it.
