Jin Joo Korean Grill's Unlimited KBBQ Promo

by - Friday, October 05, 2018

Jin Joo finally joined the line of Korean restaurants offering unlimited Korean BBQ in Manila!

The promo started last September 22, 2018, and is only available (currently) at their Podium and Eastwood branches. Of course, since it was a Saturday, my sister and I made sure we donot miss the first day of the offer. 

We came at the Podium branch at around 4pm and there was no line. That's one thing people want to hear because who wants to line up for hours just to be able to eat?! 

The catch? Pay P499+ (for lunch) and P549 (for dinner) to have 2 hours to eat everything you want from the 10 flavors of meat available, plus unlimited sides and cheese dip. A maximum of 2 orders of meat is allowed for a table with 4 paying adults, and 3 orders of meat for a table with more than 4 paying adults. 

Unmarinated Wusamgyup 
Yalb-Eun Sam (bacon-like)
Unmarinated Samgyupsal 

We first tried their basic meats: unmarinated samgyupsal and unmarinated wusamgyup. All was well. By then we thought: so far, so good. 

Dan Samgyup
Dan Wasum
We then tried their dan samgyup and dan wasum, and to be honest, the difference in the flavor is almost unnoticeable. 

We also asked for their cheese dip (which is also unlimited), and it cheese wasn't really cheese. It tasted a bit milky, but we enjoyed it anyway.

Their serving of meat per plate is quite few, even the sides. It also took sooo long before we got our sides and meat refill, which really sucked since we spent a lot of our time waiting, and we didn't get to eat properly since there were intervals to our meal. Was it because it was their first time to serve unlimited KBBQ? Probably. 

To cut the story short, what started as a 4.0 experience turned into a 3.0 because of their service. We have never experienced using up the whole maximum time limit in a restaurant offering unlimited Korean BBQ ever. To think, we were two ladies who were able to order only 6 rounds (just 12 plates) of meat, and that already cost us 2 hours. What more if my brothers were with us? I don't think we'll be able to get our money's worth.

My Scores:
Pricing - 3/5
Service - 2/5
Ambiance - 3.5/5
Taste - 3.5/5
