Gamja! Gamja! Garlic Potato

Sunday, September 25, 2011 |

While waiting for my BF to fetch me,I strolled at the basement of Robinson's Galleria in search for a nice finger food. I thought of going for donuts or potato corner but before i reach their booths, i found this new shop located just exactly right infront of the Supermarket.
It smelled very enticing so i told myself why not give it a try :)

Gamja! Gamja!

Gamja is a Korean term for 'potato'. It is derived from the Korean side dish called Gamja Jarim. However despite being Korean in Nature, Gamja!Gamja! is not too spicy, there's a slight kick and due to it having garlic, but its just very mild, it is very calming. Gamja Gamja's taste is adjusted to Filipino taste not being too spicy, a little sweet and flavorful due to the combination of corn syrup, and a little bit salty due to the soy sauce.. Its a little bit sticky but the potatoes are also a little bit crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside.(in my opinion it is nicer to include the peel)

they also come in nice packaging container with holes on top.
saves u from the mess

Gamja!Gamja! is available in three different sizes: Potpot- PhP39, Jaja PhP49 and Garlee size PhP59.

Heres a little sample recipe
