Unlimited samgyupsal. Only two words, but they’re enough to get foodies up on their toes in excitement. That’s until the rates come into play and suddenly there’s a deal breaker in the mix. The tummy might say yes to temptation, but the wallet sometimes has to say no.
But what if we tell you that you can indulge in unli samgyupsal here in Manila for less than ₱350? Really! Don’t believe us? Well, here are five places in the metro that will make it waaaaaaaay easier for even your wallet to say yes to eat-all-you-can pork!
1. Mokja Korean Restaurant
Mokja Korean Restaurant first opened its doors in 2016 and has since become a go-to place for those craving for eat-all-you-can grilled meat in Quezon City. The best thing about this place is all their rates, regardless of the day and time, are below ₱350!
Unli samgyupsal at Mokja will cost you ₱299 for lunch on weekdays and ₱349 for weekday dinner and both lunch and dinner on weekends! In her looloo review, Chloe C. calls these prices “really student-friendly” and adds that meats served by Mokja are “good for their price.”

2. Uncle Hwangso Jip Restaurant
For those in Manila, why not head to Malate and try Uncle Hwangso Jip Restaurant! For ₱299, you can enjoy unlimited samgyupsal, side dishes, rice, lettuce, and soup! You also get a serving of steamed egg!
In her looloo review, Karla Niña M. lists the following pros of enjoying Uncle Hwangso Jip’s unli samgyupsal: no time limit, available cubicles for more privacy, and super accommodating staff and owner! That’s a pretty great deal!
Uncle Hwangso Jip Restaurant can be found at 610 Julio Nakpil St., Malate, Manila.
3. Koreyan Unlimited BBQ
Value for money is such an understatement when you dine at Koreyan Unlimited BBQ. Aside from eat-all-you-can side dishes, rice, and soup, your unli pork comes in five different flavors!
The plain samgyupsal (priced at ₱249) is the default flavor in Koreyan Unlimited BBQ. But if your taste buds are feeling more adventurous, pay an additional ₱50 to try the four other available flavors: soy garlic, gochujang, sweet and spicy, and lemon pepper.
Koreyan Unlimited BBQ can be found at the Aguila Glass Building, Commonwealth Ave., Fairview, Quezon City, and along the Quirino Highway, Brgy. San Bartolome, Novaliches, Quezon City.
4. Sodam Restaurant
“You will tap out from their meat,” Mei O. says of her Sodam experience in her looloo review. “They just keep on going and going and going…and going. The meat here is sliced thinly which is good if you’re hungry because it’ll cook fast. And the price. C’mon. For the price, I believe you can’t complain anymore.”
Wondering just how much it’ll cost you? For weekday lunch, you need to shell out just ₱329 for unli samgyupsal and beef. That’s two kinds of meat for under ₱350! Rates are slightly higher if you happen to dine here during weekday dinner or on the weekends, but they’re all below ₱400. Not bad at all!
Sodam Restaurant can be found at 17 J. Abad Santos St., Little Baguio, San Juan.
5. UKB Unlimited Korean BBQ
