End of a super difficult and packed week = a very rewarding weekend only if everything has been solved in the week. Indeed that was the case when things that should work didn’t and you need to come up, test with, validate and evaluate your new ideas within two days and everything was finally solved just before going home on Friday. And so, it was a great time spent with S when we went for karaoke (S was a good singing teacher) followed by a delicious Korean meal at Kimchi restaurant. With only three posts in my ‘Korean’ category, you must have been familiar that I am not really into Korean food but after having heard much about Kimchi restaurant, I thought I need to visit it.
Ginseng chicken for $16. Soup doesn’t have a thick layer of oil that is commonly seen in other Korean restaurant while the soup tastes thick and fresh with a lasting chicken taste. It also isn’t overly salty and felt like a healthy meal.
I am quite a fan of toppoki and this is something I will definitely order at any Korean restaurant as I love the Q-ness of the rice cakes. Sauce wasn’t too spicy or savoury as well and helps to make this carbo rich dish less cloying. $7.90. Delicious!
Chicken pot rice with sunny side up on it. The yolk was still runny and love its accompaniment with the fragrant rice. Chicken was tender and its sauce made the rice so palatable even on its own. $14.
Pa Jeon or Korean pancake for $8.90. This pancake just has the right consistency with a substantial amount of fillings in it. Especially love the in-house chilli that makes this pancake even more tangy and delicious!
And the final dish is Jap Chae for $6.90. Very glassy and springy vermicelli dashed with savoury sweet sauce. Very delicious when eaten with the fresh mushrooms underneath and the condiments over it. Yummy!
So, Kimchi restaurant is really a very good Korean restaurant I felt. As the restaurant is really spacious, it isn’t a noisy at all as tables are far apart from each other and you can have a relaxing meal. If you realise, the more pack a restaurant is, the noisier it gets even though they may have fewer tables as everyone is trying to make themselves heard in this small compact area. An outstanding bit about Kimchi restaurant is that food is not oily but still delicious and hearty.
Verdict: A good restaurant.
