This unassuming Korean restaurant near Lamcy Plaza is perfect for a casual introduction to this cuisine. In true Korean dining style, tables are separated by small dividers for privacy, and there’s the option of private rooms for those who prefer to slurp their cellophane-noodle soups in relative solitude. When you’re ready to order, just ring the little bell mounted on the wall at the end of your table. Soups, noodles, pancakes, casseroles, rice bowls and a selection of stir-fried, fishy mains make up the bulk of an authentic menu. There’s also a short barbecue section, which can be prepared in the kitchen, or at the barbecue built into the centre of each table. Portion sizes are quite large, so bear this in mind when ordering, and you’ll also be presented with six varieties of complimentary kimchi. Try the haemul pajeon (seafood and spring onion pancake), which is served crisp with golden edges, browned greens and the finest slivers of squid, interspersed with chewy orange mussels. The ttukbaegi bulgogi (marinated beef in a hot pot), is another must-try, with a beefy, brothy noodle soup. Fans of East Asian eats will struggle to find fault here. As for newcomers to Korean cuisine, try it now – Gangnam style.
