So a friend's friend said that this restaurant was not only cheap, but good. That's a combination that I like, but I'm reserved about it until I actually try it out myself, which is exactly what I did, woohoo!
First thing which surprised me about this place is that no panchan (those little, side dishes which are practically ubiquitous amongst all Korean restaurants) were served. No panchan - arrrgggh!!! No biggie, I'm a big boy, but I must admit that part of the joy for me in Korean food is the panchan *sniff* *sniff*
On to the stuff we got - jap chae (tasty, but I thought the noodles were a lot gooey-er than other places I've had), the beloved seafood pancake (very good), bulgogi ribs/kalbi (good, but what's with the massive bottom layer of onions? Oh, I know, it was a ruse to make the dish seem bigger than it really was, i.e. not too many pieces of meat were on the plate), kimchi stew hot pot (very good. one of my favorite dishes since I find sour, spicy dishes always whet my appetite), and seafood yaki udon (very good, but not something I would regularly order).
Like another reviewer said, I found the service to be sub-par. We found ourselves twice going up and getting chopsticks and bowls ourselves.
Would I go back to this place? If it was closer to where I lived, a hesitant maybe, but since it's not, then no, especially since my beloved panchan went missing.
