I haven’t been to any Korean restaurants away from the CBD so I was interested to see how this one compared. The price was comparable to the city joints I’ve visited so far, but the food was better than most. We ordered soondubu jjigae, spicy pork belly and squid and haemul jeongol for two (also available for three). All the dishes were tasty and satisfying with a nice and spicy kick from chilli powder. I also liked the slightly charred flavour in the osam bulgogi.
It was quite a busy place with a high turnover. Oddly there were more people at 6:30pm than at 7pm and we had to wait for a table (only for less than 10 minutes). Perhaps everyone had the same idea as we did and were trying to come in early.
