I met the owner, and asked what this 95 Spring Garden Sushi is ($20). He explained they've been around for twenty years and 95 means 1995. Twenty years?!?! I was only 8 at that time, possibly refusing to go to the African Lion Safari in order to play more Nintendo. That 95 Spring Garden Sushi is from 1995, and hasn't changed since.
Kobi in the North York area is one of the few restaurants that seem to be setting the pace for the grill. Located just off Steeles its one of the nicer looking places with a patio. It really makes that summer time dinner choice very easy.
Walking in, it's much more spacious than I had thought. With bright colours, a few quirky decorations, and what seems like souvenirs on personal travels, the place has an inviting feel. We also hadn't planned on visiting Detroit, but this would later play a key role in our visit to Windsor Seoul since we got to meet the owner!
Kookminhakgyo (국민학교) or literally translated National School is the next restaurant pushing the envelope in Toronto. Their concept really takes it old school by showcasing records from a time that seems like ages ago.
I've found it. I've finally found it. There's been a few restaurants popping up, with much fanfare and praise for having top quality makchang (막창, pork intestine). Everytime I've been, I've faked my enthusiasm. Having lived in Korea next to a road lined with makchang restaurants (a feat in itself), I have a much higher standard for what counts as good. So when I say I've found it, you can stop looking.
