Fantastic Chef Malate is a restaurant which is recently opened in the heart of Manila. It’s the sister company of a Korean Restaurant, Fantastic Baka, located in Quezon City. The restaurant is getting famous not just because of the Korean Barbecue hype but due to the classic food such as fresh and premium meat. The specialty of the restaurant is that there is no restriction for any kind of meat such as pork. The restaurant achieved a good reputation in the area because of its amazing food and friendly atmosphere.

In August 2017, the first name given to this restaurant was “GALMEGI”, means Seagull. Then in January 2019, the name was changed into “FANTASTIC CHEF”.

All the food is prepared by a Michelin chef, Jang Jungyun, who is one of Korea’s top list chefs. She cooks the best Korean Barbecue and many other side dishes. So, don’t worry because the dishes are cooked by an authentic chef and it has good quality.

When we entered in Fantastic Chef, the staff (from security guard to the waiters) greeted us with their smiles and welcoming vibes. They accommodated and assisted us to our reserved seats. I can feel it from their attitudes that they really want to please and serve us. Though it’s not spacious enough, we can see how other people enjoy their food. The restaurant is also well-ventilated so that the customers might not soak in sweat while the meat is being grilled.

There is no time limit and you can stay there as much as you want to. But of course, if you see a long queue and you are already there from the last five hours, then I beg you to be considerate and give others a chance too.

One thing more, they have a parking space too. That’s a relief.

You can also have in-house Korean liquors in Fantastic Chef. We also enjoyed the Korean ice cream for dessert.


It is an authentic Korean BBQ Restaurant with delicious and mouthwatering food. I can consider it one of the top Korean BBQ restaurants in Malate. Their food presentation is really good which looks very classic and neat. Not only food presentation is good but the taste too. With my experience, I can feel the taste of each spice used. It is a must try and worth every penny!
