Sodam Restaurant | Unli Samgyup + Hotpot + Buffet, for as low as ₱349

An overwhelming number of Korean restaurants offering unlimited Samgyeopsal have been flooding the food scene nowadays.

Come to think of it, all you’re planning to do is just to satisfy your samgy cravings, and the next thing you knew you’re already undergoing the hassle in decision making!

Last week, we discovered another Korean BBQ that stood out from the rest: Sodam Restaurant.

What made them unique, you ask?

Well, they did not limit their menu in Samgyeopsal. But rather, they paired it with Ramen that you can also cook on the spot, plus with buffet!

Food

Sodam Restaurant serves unlimited pork and beef that are guaranteed fresh and of high quality.

The meats were paper thin, thus easier to cook.

I’m not really into thick slices of meat as I’m too impatient it takes longer to cook, so this restaurant certainly captured my taste when it comes to Samgyeopsal.

Side dishes served were Japchae, fish cake, baby potatoes, corn, garlic, bean sprout, and of course the queen of all side dishes, Kimchi (I just made that up).

Korean fried chicken (my personal fave!), sushi, maki, macaroni salad, and several others I couldn’t name (sorry!) were also available.

The lettuce were served garden fresh and crunchy.

Not so complete set, as everything in the buffet couldn’t fit in one table!

Another exciting part is the hotpot where you could cook instant Ramen. Who could say no to spicy ramen on a rainy day?

A stack of imported Jin Ramen packs are available from the buffet. It’s actually the first thing I noticed upon entering the restaurant.

Toppings such as eggs and sliced kamaboko (fish cake) will also be provided upon request.

Do you smell the aroma?

Samgyeopsal and Ramen are definitely a perfect match! You can actually put some cooked meat in your ramen bowl, or put some ramen soup in a bowl of meat, or however you want! It’s really up to you.

Price

Their unli sets are regularly priced at 399 Php (Pork), 499 Php (Pork & Beef), and 549 Php (All beef). All packages include ramen and buffet.

They also have weekday promo for lunch schedule wherein you could get unlimited pork for only 349 Php (instead of 399), and unlimited pork & beef for only 399 Php (instead of 499). All packages still include ramen and buffet.

Sodam Restaurant Menu

For unlimited samgyeopsal with ramen and buffet, it’s absolutely a good value for money!

Service

The buffet table was always full as the crew were very prompt to refill each dishes.

Buffet table

It was very easy to call the staff’s attention as if they were properly trained to be attentive with all the customers’ needs.

Upon entering the restaurant there will be someone ready to assist you and escort you to any table fit for your headcount.

The number of crew was enough for the restaurant’s seating capacity.

Location

Sodam Restaurant is located along Jose Abad Santos road in San Juan City.

Just a 5-minute drive from Greenhills shopping center, Santolan Town Plaza, and Shaw Center Mall.

It’s also just a 10-minute drive from Robinsons Galleria and SM Megamall.

And just a 10-min walk from PUP San Juan.

Ambiance

The restaurant has a little rustic and homey atmosphere.

Korean hit songs from popular Kdramas were being played at the background.

Table for 6 at the first floor
More dining spaces upstairs!
Tables good for 4 to 8 persons

It has 120 seating capacity and the tables and chairs are not jammed together as it’s spacious enough.

Fully air-conditioned, but no exhaust tubes. It’s tolerable but better if the exhaust system will be improved.

The restaurant is also perfect for friends and family gatherings!
