The food here is great! Each time I’ve gone it has tasted how it should, or at least very close to how it should taste. You can get almost anything here. They have English and pictures on the menu so you’ll know exactly what you’re ordering.
We needed a whole lot of food to fill us up for this night. Luckily I can read Korean and found the Kimchi three layered pork combo (김치 삼겹살 콤보). It’s in the back of the menu in the combo section, and only in Korean. I guess you’ll need a Korean speaker or just point to a random item to get the best deals. The combo includes a main dish and 1 bottle of soju or 5 bottles of beer for about $25-$30. Considering soju at bars and restaurants is $12, this is quite a steal. The kimchi samgyeopsal would be good for 2-3 people but because we were so hungry we ordered the kimchi stew for $7. We had a lot of kimchi on the table.The soju came first, and it’s the only brand they carry, chum-churum rich. It’s a variation of chum-churum original and a little stronger. If you’d like to know what I think of the original you can read it here.The side dishes followed closely after, and they are nothing special. You have kimchi, kimchi, and more kimchi. They are actually variations of kimchi, for example one of them was actually pickled radish. I don’t know what vegetable the other was.Then the main dish came. The one we’ve been waiting for the whole night. The samgyeopsal looked perfectly pink, cut to the right thickness, and decorated with kimchi on top. If you’ve never had hot kimchi I suggest you go right now! You can’t imagine how excited I was for that kimchi. It’s hot, spicy, and a little tangy. Mix that in with the samgyeopsal and you have perfection! I should add that the fat content on the meat was just the right amount. Not too much and not too little, definitely a higher grade of meat than in the grocery stores.We cooked it ourselves so it was awesome, but one of the staff came by because they thought I didn’t know what I was doing and cooked a bit of it as well. Just remember to turn the heat to low once it’s done so you don’t burn it. Common sense.The kimchi stew helped to counter the fat and oiliness in the meat. It was hot, tangy and just the right amount of spice. It acted as a good chaser to the soju, as it’s strong enough to mask the taste. The soju was good to cut the oil from the meat. So in the end, everything came together to make a perfect meal.
If you’re in Mississauga, come here and don’t go anywhere else. This is as real as it gets.
