It was a stormy weekend.  Many would stay at their homes but not my family.  Like all other birthdays, my uncle's birthday must be celebrated!  And, this time its at the newly opened Gen Korean BBQ House.


If you recall Banzai that closed two years ago, well Gen took its spot.


I usually encounter a sushi bar but this is the first time I've seen a grill bar.  I would have tried it if I was alone but since we were a group of 30 or so, we occupied around 7 tables in the dining area.  I wonder if it was because it was a stormy night.  But other than our group, there were only 2 other groups dining that night.  

Dinner Choose Menu (Dinner, Weekend, Holiday)
The Ban Chan which includes the Sangchu Geotjeori or Korean lettuce salad is refillable.  The best most loved Ban Chan for the group is the Korean Potato Salad.


Gen Premium Steak
We were excited to order a lot of meats because my family is dominantly carnivores.  But according to house rules, we can only order 3 dishes at a time.  We began with their best-seller: Gen Premium Steak.  Of course, it's based on practical instinct that we must try the Gen Premium Steak to at least strive to get our monies' worth.  Upon trying this, I was disappointed because I'm very picky when it comes to steak.  I don't like having to taste and smell the hint of frozen meat which I did.


Premium Chadol (Premium Angus Beef Brisket)
My siblings like pork but I like beef so my favorite is the Premium Chadol (Premium Angus Beef Brisket).


Woo Beasal 
If you want to have a fattier part, try the Woo Beasal.


Beef Bulgogi
The Beef Bulgogi is pretty good.


Samgyubsal

Honey Chicken

Garlic Chicken 
The family also enjoyed the Garlic Chicken.


Chicken Popcorn
The surprising hit for the night is the  Chicken Popcorn.  If you're getting tired of all the grilled, these addictively crunchy Chicken Popcorn is a great in between snack just pop one at a time in your mouth.


Shrimp
No need for marinade for their fresh Shrimp.  I'd order more of these if only I didn't eat too much meat already.

Jap Chae
We ordered the Jap Chae because it is a birthday tradition to eat noodles for long life.  These noodles turned out to be good.

Drinks
If there's a factor that displeased the family the most, it would be the drinks.  The Bottomless Drinks priced expensively as 138 php are listed as one section in the menu.  But turns out... when you order soft drinks, you can order soft drinks.  If you order Nestea products, you can only order Nestea products.  The saddest part is if you order Hot Coffee, we thought you can shift to Hot Tea but no.  My sister was very displeased with the Hot Coffee so she wanted to shift to Hot Tea but was not allowed.  The Hot Tea quality is really bad too.  It is oversteeped Lipton Tea...  


Birthday Surprise
And for the birthday celebrant, he gets a surprise birthday song and a birthday pineapple (yes! pineapple and not cake). 

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
We felt that Gen Korean BBQ House is not worth the price.  Even if its understandable that pricing in LA is more expensive but the meat quality isn't that good too.  Given that we were one of the few customers, we weren't very pleased with the service either.

I first encountered The Romulo Food Group when  I was invited to try Tito Chef Express three years ago.  It was such a satisfying experience so when I was invited to the grand opening of Lazat Fil-Asian Restaurant & Bar, I had high expectations.

I am familiar that this place used to be Cerchio.  And, now it's rebranded to be Lazat which in Malay means “delicious”.

I love the interiors of the place.   The theme seems to be with related with sqaures and nature.

The party took place on the second floor with a food buffet and unlimited bar cocktails.

They also have an Al Fresco area which is my ideal chill place.

I could also settle for this area for more privacy.

I've heard of Eton International School.  I only know it because it offers Chinese so it's a typical choice for Chinese in the area.  But, I was surprised to find out that they established Eton Global Institute Center for Culinary & Hospitality Management.

One Saturday, me and my friends joined in on the Breads and Spreads Lifestyle Course and we had so much fun!

The texture test

First there was a demonstration and then there was a hands-on experience where we had to do everything ourselves.  Each table or team had a chef on standby to assist and inspect.

The team practiced good teamwork.  We took turns in doing different tasks.

eton global institute
What I liked about the class is it thought us the basic foundation (from ground up).

eton global institute
Prior to this, I tried baking using pre-mixes bought from grocery stores.  But, it felt purely mechanical.  I did not understand how breads work.

Here's we understood the science and art of bread-making so we  knew how to measure, tweak and substitute ingredients. 

The schedule is also very systematic.  There wasn't any idle time at all.  While some breads were being baked, we did something else.

Our Italian Foccacia


And, the lessons were wholesome.  We were even thought on how to slice our Italian Foccacia.

Caramel Cinnamon Roll
During the class, we are given a recipe card.  (Perhaps, I will share all those soon). 



It was very well-prepared.  It lists down ingredients alphabetically with quantity and unit. 


It also lists down the procedure step by step. 


Aside from the learning part, we all discovered also how fun and therapeutic doing labor and seeing the fruit of our labor is.
It made us appreciate breads more.

In fact, my team (we named ourselves the "baguettes") are very proud of our masterpiece.


Although we know we have much to learn by practice and experience.

Overall, we loved the experience!  I'd happily come back to Eton Global Institute for more classes!
