Almost everyone, if not all (okay, maybe not all, but a lot!) of people are so into K-drama. Perhaps it's the romance and comedy that's a welcome break from everything grim that's happening or a yearning for a sense of normalcy. Regardless if you like K-dramas of not, Korean food is comfort food for many Filipinos. BBQ is somewhat healthy, too.
Korean restaurants are everywhere in the metro and some provinces, and many are still open for pick-up and delivery. So, why not have your favorite Korean foods (ahem, barbecue, please!) delivered to your homes?
Not all restaurants have their own delivery service, so expect to shell out more for courier services such as Grab, Lalamove, and more. Payments are made mostly via electronic bank transfers. Check also with the restaurant if they deliver frozen or grilled meats for grilling, in case you don't have a grill at home.
Here are restaurants that deliver food at your doorstep so you can fulfill your samgyeopsal, kimchi, and more Korean cravings:
