Huhku Hotpot Express
Was looking for something different to try and chanced upon this hotpot place along Burgos. It was raining and I also wanted some hot soup for dinner and my gut was right to try this out. I ordered a superbowl for Php 95 which contains a soup with egg noodles, veggies and 6 hotpot balls or sticks. I tried a couple with fillings inside, mushroom and crabsticks. I really enjoyed the one with filling that taste like nori and the one with cheese. Really enjoyed the whole bowl and the soup base was really flavorful.

The K-pop themed Oppa’s Kitchen is one of the new restaurants that opened at the building near Dream Cafe along M.H. Del Pilar St. It is also the first Korean Restaurant in Tacloban. Located at the second floor of the building, a korean music video was playing on a big screen on the wall, some pop stars and a mini library on the side. K-pop fans would feel at home here. I tried the spicy Jeyuk Bokkeum and an Ube Shake. At first I was kinda disappointed with the serving size of the meal but soon found it was actually a lot since it has more meat than fat. It has also something to do with the plating with a lot more space making the serving size seem small. I did like the medium heat and peppery taste of the dish. The Ube shake was also smooth and has the right amount of serving for the price.
