Jang Mo Jib

Met up with Q for a long overdue catch up date. She was craving Korean, so we decided to stick by a tried and true favourite – Jang Mo Jib. What I ate: Banchan Pretty typical sides. I personally adore the seaweed so I was really happy with it, but the rest of the side…

House of Tofu Soup

House of Tofu Soup is one of the old standbys for places to go for Korean food for me. It’s been around since I was in high school, and it’s always so nostalgic to eat here! It’s about a ten minute walk from Lougheed Skytrain station, and I recommend the walk because there is very…

Interesting decor aside, the bingsoo here is always delicious. I have had their lunch sets before, but I would…

Dae Ji Cutlet House

I had dinner here with L when I got back from Japan. After almost a month of Japanese food, I’m glad to have Korean food again. We went to Dae-ji per L’s recommendation. This is the fifth time I’ve been to this location, but the first time that I actually enjoyed the food. Previously I…
