Sam Concepcion for Chef's Noodle

Hey Coffeeholics! Yes I'm baaaaaaack! After a month long break, I'm back to blogging.  I've taken a hiatus last March coz I had to prioritize end of school teacher-ish work. So here I am with my first summer blogger event -- attending the media launch of Chef Noodle's newest endorser Sam Concepcion at Robinson's Magnolia last April 10.

When I arrived at Chef's Noodle, the place was quite jam packed already with our media friends and bloggers. The restaurant itself is a bit small but cozy in its original setting. But with this media launch, they had to rearrange the place to try to accommodate all of us. We were so many! Its a good thing though that you can still eat at the area they have at the front of the store.

What it looked like before Sam Concepcion arrived at Chef's Noodle.
We were all eager to see Sam Concepcion after all he will be the newest addition to the roster of celebrity endorsers of Chef's Noodle and he is currently a hot topic (yeah will get into that later.. hehe) and one of the most in-demand teen actors today. Sam exudes a fresh and youthful vibe that is characteristic of Chef's Noodle. The first international master franchise of the Chef's Noodle brand from South Korea, the restaurant is fast becoming a diner's haven for those who want a taste of the land of K-Pop and kimchi and more.


Offering a wide array of mouth-watering food choices, Chef’s Noodle boasts of dishes especially crafted by no less than award-winning Korean celebrity chef Choi In Sun.

Among the must-try menu items when one visits the restaurant are Chef’s Noodles, Starking Fire Sushi, Bibimbap, Japchae, Haemul Seafood Pajun (Korean pancake with shrimp and squid, spring onions and bell pepper), Leek Shrimp Twigim, Chicken Kas (breaded chicken fillet with white creamy sauce), Spicy Dukbokki, and well-loved desserts such as ice cream and gelato.

When Sam Concepcion arrived, the place sure filled up fast. Some of us were still in the midst of eating and trying out the Chef's Noodle fare so I wasn't able to get a prime spot to take photos. But Sam was very accommodating in answering all the media questions. With him was Nancy Go, Chef's Noodle operations manager.

“Sam’s cool and casual personality as well as his vibrant energy perfectly capture the brand. As a fairly new player in the food industry here in the Philippines, Chef’s Noodle is indeed a rising star—just like our new endorser Sam,” says Nancy Go, Chef’s Noodle operations manager. “We promise to always delight our customers with our signature dishes and new offerings. Chef’s Noodle will always remain to be the Korean fast food restaurant that Filipinos learned to love.”

Sam Concepcion as the latest endorser of Chef's Noodle.
“I am truly honored to be part of the Chef’s Noodle team,” says Sam. “The restaurant has been known for its delectable dishes and high culinary quality.  Who would not want to be associated with that?” One of the other things he shared that he really loved Korean Food. When asked what his favorite Korean dish, it was no surprise that he chose noodles as his top favorite. :)

“My friends and I love to hang out and try different kinds of food. I especially love Chef’s Noodle because you get to enjoy a delicious meal at an affordable price. It’s a cool combination of a fast food meal and a fine dine setting. The interiors of the restaurant are as inviting as the appetizing menu. I can’t wait to invite my friends to try Chef’s Noodle and love it the same way I did.”

When asked if he would invite Jasmine to eat at Chef's Noodle with him, he said yes. When asked if he would invite Anne to go and eat there as well, he said why not... Oh diba! Pang friends, family, and loved ones sa Chef's Noodle. Oh and if you are wondering about all talk about his encounter with Anne, he was gracious about it. I'm pretty much sure you've probably read it by now. What I couldn't forget were his words, "I understand where she's coming from.." Now that's one gracious and understanding endorser that I'm sure Chef's Noodle will be proud to have on their list.

Chef's Noodle menu perfect for the holy week!
