Whether you want to admit it or not, eating samgyeopsal has nearly become a necessity nowadays. May it be a weekend barkada catch-up, a dinner date, or even a solo food trip—you’ll always find a reason to satisfy your samgyup cravings!
Just recently, we went to Quiapo Manila to try another samgyup place, but with more affordable price. Wang Pau Samgyupsal caters to Korean BBQ junkies looking for budget-friendly offerings without having to sacrifice the quality.
Food & Price
Wang Pau Samgyupsal offers unlimited pork, beef, and side dishes with rice, lettuce, and egg stew. They have a total of 8 kinds of pork and beef which you will get when you avail their Unli 499. If you prefer pork only, you may avail either Unli 399 (4 kinds of pork) or Unli 299 (plain pork).
But I suggest you go for their Unli 499 so you could try their beef meats especially their Beef Bulgogi which was my personal fave! Herb Samgyup (Pork) was heavenly as well!
Among the side dishes, my fave were the chunks of sweet potatoes (I don’t know how they officially call it) and of course, their kimchi. I loved that the fresh lettuce leaves were not too small and not too large for samgyup wrappings.
Their Cheese Sauce was also great! Just add 55 Php to have it as much as you want! I appreciate that the grilling pan had 3 divided sections for meat (center), cheese, and egg stew. It’s a non-messy way of grilling meats while heating the cheese and egg stew at the same time!
The fact that you could have unlimited Korean BBQ for as low as 299 Php certainly looks so enticing! A price that attracts both budget-conscious adults and students alike. The restaurant is surrounded by schools, colleges, and universities so no wonder why they offer such a low price.
Another awesome part, there’s no time limit! And if you ever want to dine alone you can do so as there’s no minimum number of people required!
They also have an ongoing 5+2 promo wherein for every group of 7 people, 2 of them gets to eat for FREE! Promo runs until September 30, 2019 only.

This is not the roomiest samgyup place there is, but expect a clean and comfortable area. It has around 50-60 seating capacity. The area is fully airconditioned but I think it’s better to have exhaust tubes installed above each griller to save the customers from smelling like grilled meat.
The interiors are at its simplest, I mean, literally no designs and personal touches at all. But it should not be a problem if you only intend to eat and nothing else. The food I guess is instagrammable though.
I was impressed by the fact that the staff are truly knowledgeable about the restaurant especially in their menu. If there’s anything you want to clarify they readily know what to say.
I also find them attentive as they are prompt in accommodating customers’ requests such as refilling the dishes. They also looked neat and clean which for me is as important as the cleanliness of the place.
