Hobing; the home of my favorite Bingsu and Tteokbokki

There's a place that my Krew friends usually go to whenever we finish a long day at an event around BGC or right straight from our KCC duty. It's the nearby BGC Stop over'd Hobing and I'm eventually glad that they already expanded with different branches around Metro Manila. Here's why I love Hobing:

I'll be talking first about the BGC branch but I actually tried almost all Hobing branches in Metro Manila but their BGC one is the main. It's comfortable and could accomodate groups for team dine outs.

Rice meals

Glad that they finally started serving rice meals though I think that it's only this branch operates rice meals yet but I hope they expand it to other branches too. They have spicy and non-spicy choices like bibimbap and some western style rice meals. Taste wise, it's still the bibimbap you are expecting in a Korean restaurant.

Kimbap and Tteokbokki
My favorite dish is Kimbap and Tteokbokki and i'm glad that they offer these two as a set meal. Tteokbokki is the spicy Korean rice cake and they serve it with sausage, fish cake and generous amount of cheese. One thing I love in this shop is that they would allow you to lessen the amount of spiciness by asking you on what level of Tteokbokki spiciness you'd like it to be.

As it is a bingsu shop, they have plenty of bingsu choices and for each branch, they have specialties. The most common ones you can see on their shops include the mango, injeolmi (which they call signature) but I find it weird because the signature must be Patbingsu and not injeolmi or maybe it's just the brand's signature. For the injeolmi, you can check on the header photo of this blog.

They also have different serving suggestions like the Large (200-300 pesos and good for 2-3 people), Regular (150-200 pesos and good for 1-2)  and in Market market branch they have the junior cup (100-120 pesos, which is a little smaller than the regular sized) and the cup ones that's less than 100 pesos!

Ella's Recommendation

1. For meals, don't forget to try the kimbap and tteokbokki, i'm sure you'll like it
2. For bingsu, go for the mango cheese if you like sweet and savory; injeolmi (signature) if you like the traditional - it's made up of powdered beans and we don't really have such flavor in PH.
