A few weeks ago, I went out with my college friends Alyssa, Fran, Michelle, Angelica, Marky, and Adson. Ryan, Alyssa’s boyfriend dropped by during lunch at Bulgogi Brothers and watched The Amazing Spiderman movie with us at Greenbelt 3. As we were too full with popcorn during the movie, we decided to skip dinner and head to Spicy Fingers for happy hour! (So that’s about the summary of that awesome day :))
I suggested Bulgogi Brothers (GB5 branch) for lunch, because a) I haven’t tried eating there yet, b) I remember seeing this poster about a rather affordable Lunch Set menu. I know, 895 for two people isn’t exactly affordable for the lay person, but, when you finally get to sink your teeth into their dishes, you’ll agree with me, that the money was worth it. We ordered one each of the three sets, each set included 2 entrees, banchan (appetizers), japchae, rice, and tea. I love Korean food, so it wasn’t hard to convince myself that the food was great.
Chicken Naengchae Salad (part of the Seoul Style Set)
Spicy Fingers Milky Way shots

Sweet Potato and Pumpkin Mash (one of the banchan)
also one of the banchan, a basic green salad with the spicy sauce
The gang (L-R) Angelica, Alyssa, Fran, Michelle, Marky, Adson, and I
Chicken Bulgogi (it had deokbokki = rice cakes)
Dubu steak = tofu steak, part of the Chicken Bulgogi Set
Being the breaded tofu fan that I am, I was instantly won over by this dish! The tofu was cooked perfectly, and the sauce was a perfect complement to it!
Haemul Pajeon = Korean Seafood Pancake, part of the Gwang Yang Set
This pancake goes very well with the sweet sour salty sauce it comes with, I really loved it too. 🙂 Reminds me of the Onion Cake in Chinese cuisine.
This is what the Chicken Bulgogi looks like when cooked, orange colored goodness right there!
Japchae, this is sort of our local version of bihon guisado, except the japchae is more sweet and savory, plus it’s made with sweet potato/potato vermicelli
Overall, we had a great time in Bulgogi Brothers, although the service was a bit slow, considering we were all really hungry when we got there. But they served us free seaweed soup since incidentally, Alyssa’s birthday was a few days before this happened, so yeah, we’re good. 🙂
Now onto the photos while waiting for The Amazing Spiderman screening time.
The girls with Ryan, we look like a family. O.O
Alyssa, looking fab as always
and oh, before I forget, Alyssa, being the demanding but lovable friend that she is, requested that each of the girls were something specific for the day.
For example, I had to wear something that had cutouts, really good excuse for me to buy the romper from Runway Dreams that I’ve always had my eye on. FALALA
Fran got something sequined, so she wore this sequined top. Jeez, could I be more obvious? Note: I was the one who ironed Fran’s skirt, blooper photos later 🙂
Remember me blogging about these shoes in my Recessionista Weekend post? well now you see which color I picked! I actually wore my Fashion Galore blazer the whole time, but Alyssa insisted I take it off to flaunt my sexy back. LOL
Michelle got to wear colored stockings, which you cannot see in this photo, while Angelica got pastels. 🙂
Nachos from Spicy Fingers
Being the fun people that we are, and the lack of social life with school taking up most of our time lately, we just had to take advantage of Spicy Fingers’ Happy hour! Note: we didn’t drink too much because most of us had 7am classes the next day. 🙂 I only had 2 cocktails and 3 shots myself.
Animated people. hahaha. I think this was the time we were playing a drinking game.
Now onto some of the BTS/ getting ready/ prepping up for Greenbelt photos
That’s me, ironing Fran’s skirt, with the fan blowing my rompers!
Michelle finishing up her fishtail braid. 🙂
