3D academy

Korean restaurant in Cebu – SOO

Hi everyone. This is Korean intern of 3D Academy — Cho.

Today I am going to share with you about a Korean restaurant. I think this is the first time for me introducing Korean food in the blog.


You probably know from my previous post that I went to Camotes with my friends last weekend.

Before calling it a day, we decided to have dinner together at the Korean restaurant as some of my Taiwanese friends in the school are interested in Korean food.

Hence we decided to go to ‘Soo’ which is located on the way to IT park.

It is on the second floor of building. Despite the small sign, it is hard to miss it because there is a huge balloon of ‘Soju’(Korean liquor) shape at the entrance. You simply need to walk upstairs (next to 7 eleven convenience store) and you can see the Korean style decorated restaurant.

We took a seat at a big table with cozy sofa and ordered some foods. Korean students, Claire and 2D, have been to this restaurant before. Hence they helped us to order the delicious dishes.

While we were waiting, we were severed the side dishes. It was all common appetizer in Korea but tasty. Since we skipped our lunch that day, we were very hungry. We emptied the first plates without rice.


Here is the menu.

From simple snack to main meals, there are a variety of choices for you. The prices here are a bit higher compared to the local Philippines restaurants. But compared to Korea, It is reasonable price.



The Food We Ordered

3 Cheese noodle Tteokbokki (P 300 * 3) = P900 (~USD 17)

3 Gimbap (P 150 * 3) = P450 (~USD 9)

3 Jumok bap (P170 * 3) = P540 (~USD 10)

3 Steamed egg soup (P200 * 3) = P600 (~USD 11)

2 Pork BBQ (P200 * 2) =P400 (~USD 8)


Total: P 2,890 (~USD 55) for 13 people ( 222 pesos each). And that’s less than USD 5 per person!!!


The first dish we had was Tteokbokki (Rice cakes cooked in Gochujang – a sweet, spicy red pepper sauce). And afterwards the rest of foods we ordered, Gimbap (seaweed roll with rice and other ingredients) ,  rice balls and steamed egg etc, were served.


Tteokbokki is one of my favorite foods and it tasted similar to Korea! The spicy, slightly sweet, and chewy rice cakes were perfect for me. If you don’t like spicy food, you may ask the staff to lower down the level of spiciness. Or a good tip to enjoy spicy Korean food is having steamed egg with the fiery food. The plain flavor of the steamed eggs would make pain go away from your lips.


I felt glad because I could find such a nice restaurant nearby the school. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food a lot. Big Thumbs up for the restaurant. Highly recommended!


Plus, they are holding an event offering 10% discounts to every student who is studying in Cebu.

Don’t forget to bring your student ID card and show the staff!
