Kisoya - A Korean Japanese Fusion

Kisoya was founded in 1988 and was mentioned to have 500+ branches in Korea, but currently have at least 150 branches left standing.
Kisoya is actually a Japanese word. "Kiso" is a province in Japan, which is popular for soba noodles and "Ya" means roof. Which makes Kisoya - "Popular Noodle House".
Kisoya being a Korean-Japanese Fusion Restaurant also specializes with their Homemade Udon. They also make sure that they only get from suppliers that provides quality ingredients and I couldn't agree more as I loved every dish that was served to us during our visit. :)

Samgyup Sushi Aburi – 299PHP
Definitely my top fave! Because, hello, SAMGYEOPSAL! I don’t know how much of it I can eat as I am really a big fan of Samgyeop. You can only find this kind of sushi at Kisoya.

Kimchi Fried Rice – 299PHP
I usually cook Kimchi Fried Rice at home, but this one they cooked it differently as they added their signature sauce and mozzarella cheese.

Kimchi Nabe Udon Ala Carte – 350PHP
Kimchi is known as a traditional Korean dish combined with Kisoya’s original Udon and it definitely gave a different taste and aroma. I also love how spicy it is.

Tonkatsu Ala Carte – 170PHP
I also enjoyed this as the breading is not that thick compared to other restaurants that serves Tonkatsu.

Grill Platter – 599PHP
Their grill platter is a combination of teriyaki chicken, kani wrapped in samgyeopsal (YAY!), grilled enoki mushrooms, pork belly and grilled tuna.

Bulgogi Nachos Ala Carte – 210PHP
They used some gyoza wrapper in replacement for the nacho chips making it unique.

Gyudon Set – 370PHP
The Gyudon Set Rice Meal comes with Kimchi on the side and a bowl of Udon noodle soup making it a nakakabusog meal set.

The seafood combination of this sushi is what makes it really special.

Gyoza 5 pcs – 150PHP
Not a big fan of gyoza as I had a not so good experience when I visited a restaurant before that served really bad gyoza, but this one I enjoyed it as it was definitely good.

They also offer fresh shakes and fruit juice for their beverage.

Injeolmi Bingsu
At first, I thought it was tteokbokki as we were told that this bingsu is made of rice cake, bean powder and almond nuts, but as explained by the owner it’s another type of “rice cake” not the "tteokbokki rice cake". It was my first time to try this kind of Bingsu as I am used to the usual strawberry, melon, chocolate, etc. If you’re not a big fan of sweets and would like to try something new, this is recommended.

Mango Cherry Bingsu
A mixture of fresh mangoes and preserved cherries with shaved ice is what this is about. I love how big the serving is it was something that’s considered as “solo” in Korea.

Aside from Bingsu for dessert, they also offer the usual Korean ice cream.
Overall, I enjoyed every it of Kisoya’s dishes. The staff are all friendly and very attentive to our needs. Their 1st branch is located in Robinsons Galleria and Mr. Jun mentioned that they have plans of opening Kisoya branches in other Robinsons Malls.
I also had the chance to have a quick chat with Mr. Jun and I asked him why he choose to live here in the Philippines with his family as they’ve been living here for 15+ years now. He said that Philippines is already his second country and I also told him about my love AKA my addiction to Korea. 😊 He told me to visit their 1st ever branch in Gangnam near Samsung Station when I visit Korea, he said that 70% of the menu is the same as what they offer here in the Philippines and 30% different and of course it's going to be a little expensive there compared to the prices here. I’ll make sure to visit Kisoya in Korea when I get the chance and write a review about it. 😊
If you love Korean and Japanese food or would just like to try something new. I highly suggest Kisoya as even their prices are affordable. 😊
