Samgyeopsal (pork belly): Why samgyeopsal popular in the Philippines?
 

Korean culture has influenced Filipinos greatly. From their music, clothes, skincare products, and even their food such as ramyeon, kimchi, spicy noodles, milk tea, and the most popular “samgyeopsal” or Korean barbecue. We can see many posts on social media about it and there are many new restaurants in Manila and even in the provinces that offer the dish. Many Filipinos are going crazy about it because of its unique concept of having various side dishes.

Samgyeopsal is a popular Korean dish that is commonly served as an evening meal. The meat, usually either marinated or seasoned, is cooked on a grill at the diner's table. Usually, diners grill the meat themselves and eat directly from a grill. It is typically served with ssamjang, vegetables, and lettuce leaves to wrap it in.


 

Samgyeopsal or also known as samgyeop-sal-gui or grilled pork belly is a type of gui (grilled dish) in Korean cuisine. Its name literally means “three-layered flesh” which denotes the layers visible on the meat. It is said that samgyeopsal originated from Kaesong in the early 20th century. The people in Kaesong were known for their excellent skills and innovative ideas when it comes to business. Koreans have long preferred beef over pork, a predilection that dates back as far as the Joseon Dynasty. So, entrepreneurs come up with the idea of ​​samgyeopsal thinking that it would be successful because Koreans love eating meat. 

  

FACT: Did you know that Koreans observe “Samgyeopsal Day'' on March 3? In South Korea where they celebrate it every year, the average daily sales of samgyeopsal become higher as many Koreans seem to observe this special day. It is celebrated every March 3 because Number 3 in Korean pronounced as “ssam”.

If you're a newbie to Korean cuisine, then the best option for you to try is samgyeopsal fried pork slices. That's happening all over the place! If you ask a fan of Korean pop music what their first Korean food was, you'll probably end up with the answer, "Korean barbecue," or "samgyeopsal."Most of them mistake the term "samgyeopsal" to mean all types of meat fried over an open flame that's served at any old Korean restaurant since the term has been popularized that way in the Philippines.


As samgyeopsal became popular in the Philippines, many restaurants opened and offered this Korean dish. Korean restaurants have been popping left and right in the Metro partly because of the growing Korean population in Manila. And despite the strong spicy flavor and distinct smell, there is also a growing interest among Filipinos when it comes to Korean food.
