Masil Charcoal Grill Restaurant Review
We’ve gone to a lot of Korean restaurants around the Metro, and Masil is one of the best. It’s got delicious food, great service, and a reasonable price. I first visited Masil at their Tiendesitas location in 2018 and had their charcoal grilled meat, which I loved, so I’ve returned every now and then since.
The branch at Capitol Commons is my go-to as it’s close to my flat. The atmosphere is laid-back and cozy with bright colors and large, padded booths. If you are hesitant to eat indoors, al fresco dining is also available.
Dosirak 도시락, similar to the more well-known Japanese bento, are Korean packed lunches that often can include a variety of side dishes, but it usually always includes rice, side dishes, and some type of main protein.
Here are my favorites:
Dak Bulgogi (375 PHP)
Charcoal Grilled Chicken Bulgogi
La Galbi/Japchae (595 PHP)
Marinated Premium Short Ribs & Japchae
Jaeyuk Bokem (373 PHP)
Stir Fried Spicy Pork Bulgogi
Bibimbap (385 PHP)
Mixed rice w/ assorted vegetable and charcoal-grilled (beef/pork/chicken)
Throughout our lunch, the staff were attentive without being intrusive. We never had to wait or ask for a refill. Even during my previous visits, the service has always been excellent. The staff are friendly and accommodating.
I can think of a few good Korean restaurants in the Metro, but nothing tops Masil’s authentic taste and service.
