What is Sigsaga?

Sigsaga (식사가) literally means 'Sigsa' (meal) and 'Ga' (to go) or "Let's go have some meal" in Korean. I am actually a little bit confused why its Sigsaga Yakiniku when they actually offer Korean buffet and Yakiniku is a Japanese term for grilled meat. The place offers two floors for dining and the buffet area is located on the first floor.

The restaurant is offering a self-service type of dining wherein you can get whatever you want on their buffet table and have it cooked on your table. Some side dishes, like the lettuce and the sauces, require assistance from the staffs before it gets on to your table. The place is well lighted, has good exhaust and air conditioning so there's nothing much to worry about smelling like a grilled BBQ after eating.

Here are some of their meat selection:
Original samgyupsal (unseasoned)
marinated pork, beef and chicken
hotdog cuts

There are corrugated vegetable cuts on the selection which I initially thought is for kimbap but since it is corrugated, I don't really get what it is for. It is too long for salad and won't fit Kimbap at all.

We tried all the meat except the hotdog and the chicken and unseasoned pork are the best ones for me. The tags are too confused that if you don't really know what's in front of you, you'll just tend to get some. try it and won't even bother to know what exactly you are eating.

We arrived around past 12 noon and pretty surprised about the number of selection on their food. As someone who reviews about Korean food often, this kind of set-up is common but I can't exactly figure out what the food is on their buffet. If you aren't that much familiar with Korean food, this will pass anyway. Since we arrived later than the usual lunchtime, it is already expected that the buffet is no longer full and in best shot.

One thing that I care the most about Korean food is that they must be particular with the presentation. As I've mentioned before in my previous blogs, they believe that 'Good presentation for food means a better taste of food.' When I went to their buffet table, the only Japanese food I noticed is the maki when I've been hoping that there is Kimbap.

They have veggies to partner with the meat and some of the most popular Korean food were there. There were items with mismatched names. Well if not mismatched, it means the food doesn't look the way it has to be.

I'm surprised to see garlic cuts and onions on the buffet table because I only find them either in a Korean household having Samgyupsal or some other high-end Korean restos since it is not something that Filipinos really enjoy to have or doesn't really know how to add with their grill. It would be better if it is served upon request because garlic usually gets dry and dark easily.

Of course, a review on a Korean restaurant wouldn't end without trying the Kimchi. They have two types of Kimchi. Bae Kimchi (the traditional one) and the Oi kimchi (cucumber kimchi). Both of them are quite diluted and it lacks flavors for me. I hope they improve on creating a recipe for this one. I understand that Filipinos aren't a fan of spicy food but I know they can do better than this.

Here are some of the dishes I tried:
Buldak Hot and Spicy Chicken -
Their take on it is not spicy probably because it has been adjusted to fit Filipino's taste. The chicken is okay but I expected it to be really spicy because it is Bulkdak. (Buldak means burning chicken so its gotta be very spicy!)

Beef Bulgogi - 
The beef bulgogi taste merely like adobo but texture wise, it is more of a stew than the traditional bulgogi. 

Japche (glass noodles) -
Japche is expected to be like glass noodles with some egg cuts, meats, and mushroom but Japche here is like pansit.

Sundubu jorim (braised tofu) -
Their braised tofu is the nearest taste to the authentic one, they just have to improve on the spicy and sesame taste of it. 

Ella's Recommendation

1. For its price, the meat standard is okay but I think they offer too much side dishes that are not as quality as I expect it to be. I hope they just focus on improving some of their dishes and include it on their buffet. There are more economical side dishes that you can replace the existing ones. Example: Korean style salad, macaroni, kimbap, braised egg or egg roll
2. I have to commend some of their staffs for being nice to their guests, they are always attentive to help you and often asks if there's anything they can help you with.
