Malate’s Popular Korean Village Restaurant Is Closing

You’ve got till February 26 to enjoy their dishes for the last time!

An icon in Malate’s restaurant scene, Nakpil Korean Village Restaurant has been serving comforting, delicious Korean comfort food for over 20 years now. So it’s sad to hear that the restaurant will be closing its doors permanently on February 26, 2023, a netizen reported on Facebook.

The no-frills restaurant has been a popular dining hotspot for over two decades, from its original branch in Adriatico to its current spot on Nakpil Street in Malate. It closed temporarily during the pandemic, resuming operations in May 2020 — but purely for pickup and delivery only. 

What Korean Village Restaurant is really famous for is its yakiniku, with diners taking pleasure in grilling meats and seafood to their preference. The restaurant was also known its delicious ban chan, kimchi, and such offerings as ginseng chicken soup, chopchae, jjampong, and various stews and barbecues. 

It will definitely be missed.
