Kosoo Restaurant

Since I’ve already been here before, and I tried their lunch special, this will be a pretty quick post. I was scrolling on Facebook when I saw Kosoo’s promotion for Chicken and Beer (or Soju) for $35 (see promo here), and the deal was too good to pass up! I went here with a few…

Hongdae Pocha Cafe

Hongdae Pocha is located where one of my favourite Korean restaurants used to be (Apgujung). I’ve been meaning to check this place out for ages, and I finally had the chance to with R after a nice long walk on the seawall. Hongdae Pocha has a really interesting vibe. They tried to replicate the Korean…

Nor Boo Korean

R and I usually come to Nor Boo when all the other Korean restaurants nearby are full. Nor Boo has a very hole in the wall vibe with grungy booths to boot. It isn’t a first date – or any date place really. The food here is pretty homey, but I would avoid their banchan….

Chosun Korean Restaurant

Whenever I’m craving Korean food, I can always count on Y to be down to eat with me. Even if it’s a million degrees outside and I want to eat piping hot soup he’s got my back. What he ate: Yukgaejang ($9.95) I had a taste and the flavours were pretty standard. This was pretty…

Bbong Korean Restaurant

I was really craving Jjampong, so I dragged S all the way out to North Road to satisfy my craving. This was definitely a case of my eyes being bigger than my stomach, because we ordered way too much food for 2 people (considering I don’t eat a whole lot, so really too much food…

Kosoo Restaurant 

Most people have heard about Sura’s famous $15/$20 set lunch menu, but this unassuming Korean restaurant tucked away on Cardero Street has a similar deal going on for their lunches as well. After stalking their Instagram photos, I dragged M here on a Saturday afternoon to check this restaurant out. It was surprisingly busy when…

Haru Korean Kitchen

It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of Korean food. If I had to pick one dish that I’m currently obsessed with that would be Kimchi Jjigae (김치찌개). So when I heard that a new Korean restaurant opened near my office, I knew I just had to check it out. What I ate:…

Jang Mo Jib

Met up with Q for a long overdue catch up date. She was craving Korean, so we decided to stick by a tried and true favourite – Jang Mo Jib. What I ate: Banchan Pretty typical sides. I personally adore the seaweed so I was really happy with it, but the rest of the side…

House of Tofu Soup

House of Tofu Soup is one of the old standbys for places to go for Korean food for me. It’s been around since I was in high school, and it’s always so nostalgic to eat here! It’s about a ten minute walk from Lougheed Skytrain station, and I recommend the walk because there is very…

Damso

What I ate: Gamjatang (24 hour broth of pork, pork on the bone, potato, wild sesame, served with rice) For a short little while, I was obsessed with Gamjatang. I would get it at every Korean restaurant that I went to. I’ve been going to Damso since they opened and this was the first time…
