20150630_131334 20150630_132409

Appetizers: Kimchi and potato

  • Kimchi: 8.5/10 – very good fresh kimchi – crunchy, flavourful and delicious
  • Potato 7/10 – not sweet enough, a tad overcooked


Fried Dumpling 5 pieces

  • 7.5/10
  • Crispy on the outside
  • The inside was moist and flavourful
  • The skin of the dumpling was soft yet kept its presence


Korean Style Seafood Pancake medium size

  • 8/10
  • Pretty good Korean style seafood pancake
  • Crisp on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside
  • Good amount of chives green onions and seafood
  • I like that they offer medium and large size


Dolsot Bimbim bap – Bimbimbap in hot stone bowl

  • 7/10
  • The dolsot bimbimbap lacked flavour even after we added the sauce
  • The sauce just added spiciness but what the dish needed was salt in the marinated veggies
  • But there was a good amount of veggies and beef


Korean style roll – carrot, burdock, spinach, egg, radish pickle

  • 7.5/10
  • Really big!
  • Good amount of fillings but way too much rice
  • It made it difficult to eat


Pork back – bone stew in hot pot

  • 6.5/10
  • Disappointing
  • Had like 3 bones which was reasonable but needed more potato
  • Also lacked flavour – could have used more time stewing and a tad more salt
  • The good thing is there’s no MSG like other Korean places

Address: 140-8211 Westminster Highway, Richmond

Type of Restaurant: Korean, Asian

Price Range: $$

Overall: 8/10

Will come back? Yes – because I want to try the ramen and the pork katsu

Summary: Surprisingly good Korean place with generous servings and good standard food. Flavours are on quite authentic, especially the kimchi and seafood pancake. I want to go back and try the ramen, katsu and Korean noodles
