Just got back from treating (torturing is more appropriate) my tastebuds with some really spicy food at Topokki Man. I am bursting at the seams while writing this. Feast your eyes on these photos as I had feasted on the real thing.
Yes, 50 pesos only for 12 pieces! But don't expect giant pieces. Baby rolls. I repeat, baby rolls.
Looks harmless but wait til you add the chili paste that comes with it.
Bibimbap literally means mixed meal. So yes, you have to mix it thoroughly (don't forget the chili paste) before gobbling it all down.
The photo obviously doesn't show the complete "set". That's cause I ate some before remembering to take a photo. The set includes the following: veggies, shrimp, squid, squash, sweet potatoes, and dumpling.
There's supposed to be an egg here but it ended up in my stomach before I clicked the shutter.
What's in it? Rice cakes (the rolls you see in the photo), tofu, boiled egg (in my stomach already), sesame seeds (you must be blind if you don't see it), some veggies I didn't care to identify, and chili paste (that's why it's red!).
1/2 Ramen. Rice and kimchi missing from photo. You know how those look (and taste) like anyway.
Never attempt to ask for mild ramen. They will only add more water!
Carbo loading, aren't we? Now I am ready to run a marathon. NOT!
If you like flaming hot Korean food, head on to Topokki Man at Rosedale Center in Talamban, just beside Doña Rita Village. Deliveries also accepted. Give them a ring at 345 6701. Just not on a Sunday. Topokki Man rests on Sundays.
PS It's a small place, so don't bring the whole barangay here. Seats about 25 people.
PPS The take away comes with a little saw!
How gluttony bore a hole thru Mustachio's pocket:
Add everything up, it comes down to a total of Php 540.
Hey, it's not too bad. That could feed four people you know.
