It really seems that this street brews some of the best new food places in Cagayan de Oro.
I was discerning whether or not to keep this place a secret. It is relatively new (the time I wrote this) and it is still a neophyte among big food names in Cagayan de Oro. But Crumbcoat.
Yes, I have blurted it out, Crumbcoat is the new gem in Gaerlan. I am so sorry, if this brings an influx of people to the cute small establishment of inexpensive, student-friendly priced fusion of different cuisines.
If I were living in a dorm near this place, you would find me here often for sure.
It was a fine afternoon. Egan and I were looking for a place to eat late lunch for our special day. *Smile*
We wanted to celebrate, not break the bank. We remembered the place where a few friends in film went for a version of butterbeer.
We remembered the food choices were few and inexpensive, ranging from 70-130 PH Pesos.
Going in the place feels intimate. Space is cute and decor is quirky. You are greeted with a chalkboard menu on top of the counter where you place your order. Behind it is the kitchen.
A few minutes later, our orders arrive.
Kimbap (kimchi), at first glance they looked like maki rolls.
I am more familiar with Japanese cuisine than Korean but fully aware that there are similarities to the two. This did not taste like a tuna maki roll though. It tasted tangy, sweet, and with the unique flavor of kimchi that wasn’t too strong. This was a marriage of flavors that I actually liked.
Bulgogi (spicy). I have had Bibimbap before and in my opinion, it is like that. A cooked meat to be mixed in with vegetables, eggs, and kimchi. Lovely tapsilog-like but with the added (once again) unique flavor of kimchi that wasn’t too strong.
These were my first times trying Kimbap and Bulgogi. All I could say was it was a fun lunch. I didn;t mind the affordability as well.
On to my next munchtrip.
Catch ya later, fellow munchters.
