Premier The Samgyupsal: Elevated samgyupsal experience

Share this:

I’d been to several samgyupsal restaurants already, and I’m at this point where ordinary no longer does it for me. I want a “premiere” experience: quality meat that I’d go back to, delicious banchans, and good service to complement the whole setup. A few weeks ago, we tried out Premier The Samgyupsal in BF Homes, Paranaque.

True to its name, Premier indeed offers high-quality meat that samgyupsal lovers will surely enjoy.

Location and ambiance

We dined in at Premier The Samgyupsal in BF Homes, Paranaque. This one is open 24 hours (yay!) and features 25 tables and a VIP room for groups. It’s spacious enough, which is always a plus point when it comes to samgyupsal restaurants.

There’s an LCD TV showing Korean music videos for KPop fans.

Each table has a built-in bell (producing a cow’s moo sound) so it’s easy to call the staff.

Food

Premier The Samgyupsal offers unli mix (pork, beef, chicken) for P580 per person. In our visit, we opted to get ala carte items because I wanted to try other items in the menu that is not included in the unli option.

Each order (ala carte or unli) comes with 15 different side dishes and rice. They also include a seafood soup. I love the seafood soup since it has generous servings of clams and crablets and it’s a great palate cleanser. For the side dishes, I enjoyed the marbled potatoes and sweetened peanuts.

We ordered grilled thin pork belly (P380), beef loin (P380), and wagyu beef thin skirt (P880). These are the ones recommended by the staff. I’m surprised by the serving because it’s really sulit for the price — one plate is good for 2-4 people.

First of all, it’s easy to tell that the meat is high quality. I read that Premier The Samgyupsal uses aging refrigerators to make the meat more flavorful before serving. I also like that the cuts are a bit thicker; some restaurants have too-thin cuts that tends to stick to the grill. We didn’t have this problem here.

I also appreciated that our server helped us in cooking the meat. He arranged the slices in our grill so beautifully. We asked to take it from thereon. The grill burns evenly so the experience is easy. (As we try various samgyupsal restaurants, this is one minor thing that we take notice.)

I love the beef loin and the wagyu beef thin skirt. The plain pork isn’t as tasty so I suggest skipping this.

Of course, the samgyupsal comes with a cheese dip. So far, this is the best cheese dip I’ve had (followed by the ones in Bawooboy Grill and Fantastic Chef). It’s creamy, thick, very flavorful.

We were supposed to order another plate of meat but it’s a good thing that we didn’t because 3 ala carte plates were more than enough for us. We actually had leftovers.

We also had seafood and soft tofu stew (P380). This is one of my favorite Korean dishes and I always make it a point to order it. Like the seafood soup, this one has generous servings of clams, mussels, and vegetables. It also has a raw egg which makes it look very presentable. This stew is sweeter than I expected, but it’s still a good item to order especially if you’re a fan of this Korean dish.

Hali also had bibimbop (P380). This is delicious as well — I tried to grab it away from Hali but sadly he took it back. One bowl is good for 1-2 people, depending on your appetite.

Overall

Overall, this is one of the better samgyupsal restaurants we’d been to. I love the “premiere” quality of the meat and the serving sizes — moreover, Premier doesn’t scrimp on ingredients so if you order one of the ala carte items, you’re guaranteed your money’s worth.

Service wise, the staff is very attentive. They can help you with grilling, if you want. The built-in button for calling makes it easier for us to follow-up orders and ask for refills.

Finally, I like that the BF Homes branch has a lot of tables for its customers and it’s open 24 hours. We dined in on a weekday (after lunch time) and there were only a few customers with us. I don’t know if it gets full on weekends, but I’m happy that we didn’t get to wait in line to get our samgyupsal fix.
