Are you looking for a great family-owned restaurant that cooks fresh and wholesome food? Namul (formerly The Korean Tea House) has just got better and the owners, Jae and Joo Lee, have decided to concentrate on wholesome Korean food, or fusion Korean food with a twist of western pizzazz, all made with authentic Korean ingredients.
Joo says, “I cook what my mother cooked for me and what I cook for my own children. Cooking is not just cooking, you should put all of you into it. If you cook with fresh ingredients and your utmost sincerity, people will taste the love in your food.” And home style delicious fare is exactly what you get – without any artificial additives or deep frying.
We started with a Korean Omelette – surprisingly delicious; and braised lotus root. We sampled KimBab, an excellent sushi-style appetiser of rice rolled in seaweed with seasoned burdock roots, spinach, carrot, egg and pickled radish served with a tangy sauce. The tasty Wanja consists of pan-grilled patties made with hand-chopped chicken breast, garlic, green onion, egg and tofu and served with seasoned Korean soy sauce. The Chicken Bulgogi Quesadilla is filled with spicy bulgogi; cheddar; mozzarella, onions and peppers with a creamy spicy dipping sauce ... and served with amazing spicy potatoes ... an explosion of flavour.The KukSu Bokum is stir-fried Lidon noodles with a choice of Beef or spicy pork, freshly sliced cabbage, onions, peppers and tossed in a Korean sauce.
Namul is a Korean word for seasoned or sautéed vegetables and any edible greens or herbs. Everything you eat here is hand-chopped with love and care. What an excellent place for North End dining – and also offering gluten-free options and an exceptional selection of teas!
Namul - Delicious, healthy eating with the exotic allure of the East.
