Fusion concepts are still going strong in Manila's food scene and maybe this time foreign entrepreneurs are leading the way. When I saw the "The Cook by Honglee Park, it's hard not to get intrigued because it's so out there. They have fused Korean cuisine and Italian and pulled out all the stops to get noticed. From their giant electronic signs to their fake food displays, they give every reason to stop and look.
As advertised the food looks great on my camera and in person. The food like any other fusion concepts is perhaps more subjective. Don't get me wrong, I love both cuisines combining the two may be as tricky as I expect. The good thing though some combinations are more aesthetic than actual taste so the food is not only almost familiar but interesting to say the least. Food titles/ names are generic so I'll be more specific when I can with my captions. Enjoy!
The format/ servings are interesting all the dishes by category are priced the same and serves 2-3 persons.

Just like the next person, I enjoy good food. Doesn't matter if it's cooked one minute or one hour, if it looks good, it usually is.
