The Combo’s always the best deal if you ask me!

Seafood Noodle Soup.

Plenty of seafood in here: mussels, prawns and squid.  I thought it a tad on the fishy side though the girls seemed okay with it.  The noodles are supposed to be hand-made.   They do have some bounce.  Rating:  4/6

Kimchi.

I love banchan.  I wish that Kyung Bok Palace would give us more of these little dishes.  I liked a lot of variety and particularly like the potatoes and kimchi.

Beef Bulgogi. 

Hm. Not so appetizing looking is it?  However, it was quite yummy.  Underneath that flotilla of meat and beef scum is a sweet soy broth that goes well with the rice.  It was a good portion.  Rating:  4.5/6

Banchan: fried slices of sausage (kielbasa?) and marinated potatoes

Beef Bulgogi

Being in a mall almost ensures a restaurant doesn’t rate highly on Urbanspoon…it seems.  Hm.  Well, I think that the restaurant is overpriced for some of the stuff you get, but the deals are in the combos at lunch in particular.  The sushi isn’t good.  So avoid it.  Do go with a combo if you can and the meat is pretty decent.  I liked my beef dish though it was clearly unphotogenic. 

Unfortunately, if you come with kids, they always seat you at the same table on the other side of the glass display near the door.  The tables are placed too far from the booth seats for the kids to reach and inevitably they slide down their seats.  They have to lean forwards, sitting on their knees to reach their meals.  There is plenty of room in the restaurant and so we asked to be seated at a table instead.   The waitress directed us to a far-off private room.  The problem here is it was hard to flag down service.    Service was okay but could have been more attentive. 

I don’t know how authentic kielbasa is as part of a Korean meal, but I go ape over tons of banchan.  I haven’t eaten many Korean meals in my life and the few times I have gone, I have liked it though I’ve always wondered how authentic it was.

Walnut Crusted Chicken Breast – It’s all About the Nut Glue

I almost never order a nut-crusted entrée in a restaurant, since they usually use a sugary glaze to hold them on, and/or feature a too sweet nut, like pecan, or macadamia. That’s not an issue here; since we’re going with buttery, subtly bitter walnuts, held on with a very savory […]

5-Minute Fisherman’s Stew – Give or Take

Of course this Fisherman’s Stew takes more than five minutes to make, and I’m actually referring to the approximate cooking time once the seafood hits the pan, but as they say, it’s only false advertising if someone else does it. Besides, one taste and I’m sure you’ll forgive any temporal […]

Pear Clafoutis – Almost as Good as it Looks

It sounds odd to say that a recipe’s biggest problem is that it looks too good, but that’s sort of the case with this pear clafoutis. Through no fault of its own, this crust-less, custard fruit tart looks a lot sweeter, and richer than it actually is. So, please be […]

Bloody Mary Burrata – An Experiment in Liquefying Salads

I don’t think there’s actually a difference between a liquid salad, and a cold vegetable soup, but if there is, I’d like this Bloody Mary Burrata recipe to be considered the former. Especially since I already posted a gazpacho this summer. But regardless of what you call this strange hybrid, […]

Crispy Butcher’s Nuggets – Parts is Parts

While our homemade butcher’s nuggets won’t feature the same diversity of meat parts as the butcher shop, at least they won’t feature the same diversity of meat parts. Seriously, those folks will put anything into a sausage or meatball. All kidding aside, these crispy fried meatballs will have you wondering […]

Baked Philly Cheesesteak Sliders – Go Giants!

The Philly Cheesesteak is a simple sandwich to make, as long as you’re making them in a restaurant. To make a proper one, you need a professional meat slicer, and a very hot flattop grill, which aren’t things most people have at home.  That’s why I loved this baked slider […]
