Because of the its effective signage, we were able discover that CCYG Chung Choon Yeon Ga  (청춘연가)  is the best BBQ brand in Korea with around 358 restaurants all over the country.  It is relatively new here though.  It only opened it pioneer branch in Quezon City last November 2019.  And, this Malate branch its second branch.

All for 499 php, you can get choose among CCYG's pork, beef and specialty side dishes.  Since we came in a big group occupying two table and it is its policy that when one goes for unlimited, all have to go too.  We all went for the unlimited.  After all the unlimited rate is worth only two ala carte dish. 

Specialty Side Dishes

Rice Ball, Tteok-Bokki, Jap-chae and assorted Ban Chan
Because the Specialty Dishes comes for free, no pressure if you don't eat all of them.  In fact, just try the Rice Ball and Tteok-Bokki.  The rest was disappointing.

Okay, the Seafood Jeon is too big too ignore.  Better have a tasting portion of this too.

You can order a three-layer tray at a time.  We tried our best of have more trays so we could justify the unlimited price of 499 php.  In the end, we only managed to order 1 three-layer tray per person.

Grape Shake
Grape Slush (50 php)
We ordered the Grape Slush as we needed something cool and sweet to comfort the taste buds from all the savoriness.  But, we couldn't take more than a sip of this.  It was so sweet that it was so painful to the throat.
