We had high expectation of the food. We were directed to a table for 2 by the glass wall with a view looking outside the Restaurant. The table had a gas stove built into it. Looking at the menu, we realized they served mainly beef items. This limit my choice of food which I could order as I do not take beef. I am actually a fan of Korean BBQ and was disappointed that I could only order the Belly Pork and they do not have chicken.
They also required us to order 2 portions of Belly Pork. Since there is only 2 of us, we could only order 1 other dish which is seafood pancake.
Ssamcheban (Vegetables Wrap)
Different vegetables leaves were served on a long tray and looked pretty impressive. See photo below :
As most Korean place, we were served with free sides. We were given 4 sides dishes such as Shredded Leeks, a cold Kimchi Soup, Radish Kimchi & Lettuces Salad. It is mostly vegetables which I am not a fan. I only like the spicy Radish Kimchi which was shredded in thin slice and has a spicy kick. I would prefer the usual stewed potatoes, anchovy, braised egg which is served at other Korean place.
The raw pork belly was sliced thick, the server came and help us to grill leaving us free to enjoy our meal instead of worry about the food getting burn.
Our clothes did not smell after the meal as there were hardly any smoke during grilling.
t the end of the meal we were served with this icy cold Omija Tea 오미자 차 (Schisandra Berry Tea). This is my favourite among the items I had taken in this Restaurant. It is a cordial drink make from berries. It has a refreshing, not too sour taste which wake up the taste buds and is nice end to the meal. I wish I know where I can buy this drink.
Prices are quite high as the total bill came to $70 for 2 paxs. It will be too expensive for regular lunch for people working in the area. If you are fan of Beef, and prefer light taste, than this maybe a place for you. This place is not for me as a I love Korean BBQ but do not eat beef, so there is not much choice of BBQ meat for me and I do not like the all Vegetarian sides dishes which I was served.
