Golden Ajirang-i Korean Restaurant


Both my friend and I are Korean Drama fans, so we are always tempted to try all the Korean dishes that were featured on the dramas we watched. So last March 2014, my friend and I went to Golden Ajirang-i Korean Restaurant for dinner. It was my friend’s second time while it was my first time.

As expected, Golden Ajirang-i Korean Restaurant is filled with Koreans who are enjoying dishes from their home country. It was also noticeable that the tables are designed to accommodate Korean way of dining. The tables have covered holes designed for cooking stoves. It was designed that way so you can cook your food at your table depending on the dish you are going to order. As for us, we ordered Yukejang (Spicy Beef Soup) for me while my friend ordered Denjang Chigae (Bean Paste Soup). So we don’t need to cook on our table.

While waiting for our orders, the waitress placed five (5) side dishes on our table and one of them is kimchi (a traditional fermented Korean side dish made of vegetables with a variety of seasonings).  Even it was my first time eating in a Korean restaurant, I have been eating kimchi for many years now. I buy them in our local grocery stores. I like eating kimchi with variety of Filipino dishes.

So when our orders arrived, I noticed that the aroma of Denjang Chigae was so strong. I can taste the bean paste already just by smelling it. I tasted it too and it was delicious and so as the soup I ordered.

As for my Yukejang, since I can eat spicy dishes well, my soup’s spiciness was tolerable. It wasn’t too spicy but still you can taste it spiciness.


Since I haven’t eaten any Korean dishes before, all I can say is that the food was delicious and new to my taste. And if you ask me if I wanna go back again, well, I am already planning to do so. I want to try the other Korean dishes soon!

It's amazing how Golden Ajirang have survived throughout the years. Not so much of a fan of korean foods but would love to taste some dishes. Reminds me of my korean instructor way back in college who cooked some korean dish for us before he left.

I have only been to a Korean restaurant for three times in my lifetime! I am not good in remembering the names of their dishes but their taste do leave an impression to me. I wish to visit this place on our next CDO homecoming. How exciting! There have been so many commercials that have existed in CDO through the years. Truly a booming city!
