Hard to resist Kim's Korean for lunch at the market

One of my favourite things to do is wander the Saint John market, soak up the atmosphere, pick up a great locally crafted gift or exotic vegetable, and then choose from all the delicious options for lunch. But the problem is that when it comes to choosing lunch, it's hard to resist Kim's Korean... read more

My son treated me to Korean food. I had the beef combo my husband had the pork combo but our son got himself the best one, it had everything and for $9 a real deal.

I've eaten there twice now and both times the sweet beef was over done and a bit dry. The spicy pork was really spicy and I can handle some heat. I don't mind sweating a bit but full on dripping on my desk at work from the spiciness was a bit much. It's not a bad place but it doesn't... More

We had the lunch special of the day which was rice with bulgogi, sweet potato noodles, miso soup, spring roll and fried vegetable for $8.18+tax. It was so huge we split it. The spring roll and fried vegetable (sort of a tempura style dumpling) were small but just right for lunch. The miso soup was bascially broth but really nice... More

Stopped by for the lunch special. You can choose your meat, either spicy pork, sweet beef (bulgogi) or both. Comes with rice, glass noodles, dumpling, and veggie fritter-type thing, and miso soup. Overall, it was very good food. Meat and rice, and soup were nice and hot, but other items were not. I am sure it is acceptable to eat... More

Popped in for lunch at this great little place, Spicy ramen was excellent however the noodles were out of a packet, which didn't impact the bowl of food but fresh would have been nicer! Cracking place will go back again for lunch!

What a great treat this was. We were on a cruise and one of the stops was in Saint John and our waiter told us on the cruise that we had to try this place for lunch. I have to say that it was wonderful, and we really enjoyed the soup and the dumplings were great as well. If you... More

The lunch special is awesome. The spicy pork has a great kick to it (watch out if you usually eat mild foods!) Bibimbap is also very delicious. Can't beat the value and the taste. Almost a weekly stop for me.

I have visited Kim's three times on my visits home to Saint John. When I lived there 25 years ago, the ethnic choices were pizza and western-style Chinese. What a treat it has been to see multiculturalism blossom in my home town. My first visit to Kim's was made with some skepticism - I was expecting it to be adjusted... More
