As visiting tourists we came here on a Sunday evening when most other nearby restaurants were closed. Though it was peak dining time, we had the place all to ourselves. Apparently the locals have learned to eat elsewhere. You should too!
They serve just one...dish here, a beloved staple of Korean cuisine. Start with a scalding hot stone bowl, add cooked rice, then veggies, and top it off with a protein. Hear the sizzle, mix it up, and enjoy.
Our food was acceptable (one pork, the other octopus), but neither was worth anything close to € 18! Certainly the biggest disappointments were the "ban chans." These are the incredibly varied side dishes that are the essential accompaniment to every Korean meal.
Two people would usually be given 5 or more such bowls. We got 3, with minuscule portions about the size of a soup spoon. The house "kimchi" is always the star attraction, but it was available here only as an additional menu item. Any Korean grandmother would be scandalized!
We are rarely this harsh in judging restaurants, but BiBimBap simply doesn't deserve your patronage.More
