What I ate:


Regular Kim Bap

  • 8.5/10

  • The seaweed only the outside was so crispy I was amazed! The sesame oil flavour was very strong yet didn’t make the Kim Bap soggy

  • The proportion of rice to filling was perfect

  • Everything tasted very good

Bulgogi Kim Bap

  • 8/10

  • Almost identical to the regular Kim Bap

  • Except this one had Bulgogi (beef) but not enough to taste it


Stone Pot Pork Rice

  • 8/10

  • Very flavourful and spicy

  • The bottom gets very crispy which adds another level of smoky flavour

  • Unfortunately not enough pork but enough vegetables and flavour


Jang-Teo Kook Bab

  • 7/10

  • Did not contain enough meat

  • The flavour of the broth was also lacking flavour

  • The rice didn’t soak up the soup well

  • Disappointed with this dish


Dduk Mandoo Gook

  • 7.5/10

  • The mandoo (dumplings) were a tad overcooked

  • The skin was falling off and the filling was coming out into the soup

  • The soup itself was nice and flavourful and milky (from the bone broth)

Summary: Nice and cheap place for Korean kim bap
