WATCH: Ryan Bang opens fine dining restaurant Paldo in Quezon City

Jan Milo Severo -

MANILA, Philippines — Host Ryan Bang opened his first fine dining Korean restaurant Paldo in Quezon City.

In an interview with the media during the opening of what he said was the "first fine dining Korean restaurant in the Philippines," Ryan said that he wanted Filipinos to taste the finest Korean food, not only Samgyupsal (Korean barbecue of grilled pork belly). 

“Paldo, talaga, it’s our own concept in the Philippines. Wala namang Paldo sa Korea. It’s our original brand starting here sa Philippines,” he said.

“Usually, nalulungkot ako kasi karamihan lalo na mga kababayan nating Filipino, kapag sinabi nilang Korean food, ang alam nila unlimited samgyupsal. 'Yun 'yung karamihang alam nila na Korean food tungkol sa Korea eh. Dito sa Paldo, talagang you can experience Korea kahit hindi kayo pumunta sa Korea. Pwede talaga kayo dito mag-try ng Korean traditional food,” he added.

The "It's Showtime" host said that his restaurant will give Filipinos budget-friendly yet authentic Korean food. 

“Gusto ko talaga ma-experience ng mga kababayan nating mga Filipino (ito). Atsaka hindi po siya, akala nila kapag fine dining sobrang mahal. Open po kami sa lunch, 11 a.m., P700. Talagang it is affordable. Tapos sa traditional na food set, usually kapag fine dining mga nasa apat na libo, limang libo. Kami ang ginawa namin less than P2,000. Gusto ko talaga ma-experience ng mga Filipino ang Korean traditional food here in Paldo,” Ryan said.

“Mayroon din kami sa lunch na madali lang orderin na P500. 'Yung lunch talaga sobrang sarap kasi mismo 'yung chef nandito araw-araw. Siya po 'yung nagluluto para sa ating mga kababayan. Gusto ko talaga ma-experience ng mga Pilipino 'yung authentic Korean traditional food kaya po ako nagtayo nito,” he added. 

Ryan's Paldo is his fourth business after the authentic Kimchi business, Korean restaurant Ducup and hair salon, Moridu Art.  — Video by Jan Milo Severo, editing by Martin Ramos
