A lot of people love this restaurant for being homely and offering LOTS of side dishes. It definitely does have that home cooking feel to it which is why you’ll see that it’s crowded most of the time.
Like many Korean restaurants, you will get free Side Dishes. And they give you so many to choose from! If you’re lucky, they’ll also give you a potato pancakes!
One of my favourite dishes, Dolsot BiBimBap. It’s not the best I’ve had but still great and flavourful. The chili sauce helps and I’ve yet to have a bad bibimbap.
The GongJong DdukBokKi is the non-spicy, savoury version of the popular spicy Tteokbokki. This was one of the first times I had a non-spicy version and I loved it. The beef was marinated beautifully and the sauce was a little on the thicker side, which I preferred.
Their JaJangMyun (Black Bean Noodles) were great! The noodles were chewy and not too thin. The sauce was thick enough to be absorbed by the noodles and had cubes of meat. It’s a very savoury dish and the cucumbers (however little there are) are very refreshing.
The Gam Ja Tang (Pork Bone Soup) has large bones and comes with a side of rice. The soup had great flavour and was just the right amount of spicy. I know some people who have had it multiple times and it does not disappoint.
Remember the free Potato Pancake I mentioned earlier? Here it is! Depending on your party, you may receive more. They gave us ours closer to the end of the meal and it’s made out of potatoes but’s it’s not chewy at all. It’s chewy and it’s a texture I can’t quote explain. It’s one of those things you have to taste yourself.
