Everyone enjoys watching samgyeopsal sizzling on the grill, but what if you like Filipino-style barbecue? The rich flavors of Filipino barbecue, which are smoky, salty, and sweet all at once, may be dangerously addictive and lip-smacking.

Jovy's Grill, located among the stores and buildings along Cheonggyecheon Stream, is a cheap Filipino restaurant in Seoul that focuses on grilled meats. The inihaw na liempo, or grilled pig belly, is a must-try meal, with its crispy skin and gleaming meat served on banana leaves.

Chicken inasal, a grilled chicken dish from the Western Visayas region, is another popular item on the menu. The chicken's soft meat and unusual marinade — consisting of ginger, calamansi, vinegar, lemongrass, and sugar — make it a winning meal for Filipinos and non-Filipinos alike when served with a soy sauce and calamansi dipping sauce.
