Song-Do Korean Experience

In one of our company presentations to a customer, Team Marketing was tasked to look for a suitable venue that has ample space for a presentation, and at the same time, have lunch as well. After looking at over five venues in the Ortigas area, we finally settled for a Korean Restaurant. This one's named Song-Do, and is located at El Pueblo near St. Francis Square at the back of SM Megamall.

While Pauline and I were comfortable with our choice, it turned out that our Sales team weren't as optimistic, especially when they learned that we have to remove our shoes, and that not everyone might enjoy Korean food. But their doubts were dispersed when the guests arrived and were delighted at the unique venue. They felt like they were in a Koren TV drama which is taking the local TV primetime slots by storm. And they didn't mind taking off their shoes at all. It's all part of the Korean dining experience after all.

We didn't have to squat all throughout the presentation; the space underneath the table is hollow so you can sit in the normal fashion. This is for the semi-private place; they have regular tables and chairs too, with stoves in the middle for Korean Barbecue.

At lunchtime, we were served a variety of appetizers. There was, of course, the kimchi. Pauline and I had bimbimbap which is also a popular food item because of the Koreanovelas.



They have this strips of beef that look like bacon that they cooked using this contraption over the stove. Yummy.


Song-Do is a very friendly place with a friendly price. And it's a relatively new place too, so it's spic and span. Highly recommended!
