Loved the Special Mari II (3 types of sushi roll). Squid ink roll is good. Topokki is good but very spicy. Service so-so only. Environment is good. Had late lunch there so not very crowded.

One of the diners was gluten free, one of the egg bibimbap offered a non soy version that you can get... More

The Mari was really nice with a modern twist with traditional Korean Sushi or many other items on the menu. And they and muti-language menu for foreigners. But the place was busy during weekend

Nice street food and drinks. Delicious fusion kimbap. There are different flavours of kimbap. I like eating kimbap very much. Nice view with snow flakes.

Don't miss the special meri 2. And personally i love the banana vinegar as well. However, if u don't know Korean but only English, might be a bit difficult to check out what you want

Recently, I have been to School Food, recommended by friends. It’s a nice restaurant found in multiple locations. Though, School Food seems to always be hidden under other buildings. Once you have found one, there is no stopping yourself from going again and again. School Food has a very welcoming modern style and nice view of the neighbourhood. The waiters... More
