FOUR-Ever in Love with Four In Love

by - Friday, September 27, 2019

This newly opened concept from the Fortune Hub Corporation is a new but somehow different take on the buffet restaurants Filipinos all love. With the concepts of eat-all-you-can and Korean BBQ in mind, four restaurateurs decided to bring in a restaurant that offers FOUR Asian cuisines for its customers to enjoy all in one area.

Four in Love is a BBQ and hotpot buffet restaurant that opened its first branch in SM City Manila last August 31, 2019. They offer a mix of Thai, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean cuisine. 

Korean - KBBQ

Japanese - Yakiniku & Shabu-Shabu
Thai - Mookata Grill
Chinese - Hotpot

Like many other buffet restaurants, Four in Love has a buffet area where customers can help themselves with all the hot dishes available such as katsu, Korean soup, Korean pancake, chicken, maki, and more. This selection changes from time to time, giving customers more variety to choose from. They also have drinks and desserts in place.

There are three sets to choose from: harmony (P399), wealth (P599), and abundance (P799). You can enjoy unlimited servings of all the meat, mozzarella cheese, and seafood (if applicable) from the chosen set without any time limits. This comes with all-you-can-eat hot dishes, cold dishes, sushi, fruits, and desserts. You can then add P99 per soup per table if you want to have a hotpot or shabu-shabu or mookata grill. You can also make your own sauce with the 28 different sauces/ ingredients they have in their sauce bar. In case you don't know what to combine, they have a guide of the basic sauces you can make. 

Here are the sets to choose from:

For only P399, customers can enjoy unlimited servings of the plain pork slices, pork slices in sweet marinade, and pork in spicy marinade.

Scallop (6pcs per order)
SOUPS (+ P99 per soup per table)

Here are the soups to choose from:
  • Sukiyaki
  • Miso
  • Mushroom
  • Tom Yum
  • Kimchi
  • Aroi Thai
  • Chicken Herbal

Mala Soup

Miso Soup

There are 28 ingredients you can use to make your own sauce. Well, I haven't really tried making my own nor the other basic ones, but I did like the one with the combination of Japanese shabu sauce, spring onions, chili paste, red chili, and garlic. It's a no-fail sauce anyone will surely love, especially as a dip for beef. I just added some cilantro in it (just because I love them) and it worked for me. 

After all these details, it all boils down to one thing ~ is it worth it? My answer is a resounding YES! With the variety they offer, even the most expensive set is a bang for the buck. Just don't expect much from their buffet table and focus more on getting your money's worth from the meats. Their hotpot is also very cheap considering it's only P99 per soup and already refillable, so I wouldn't skip having the Mala soup, if I were you guys (but please don't sip it! It's too flavorful and spicy. The technique is to just let your meats cook in the broth).  

My Scores:

Service - 4/5
Ambiance - 4/5
Taste - 4.5/5
