NOTES

  • The bean sprouts panchan is flavorful!  (It often is the blandest of bland.)  The potato panchan is chewy.  Jenne likes it; I don’t.
  • I liked the dol sot better (because I didn’t like all the lettuce with the bibimbap), but I prefer the beef.
  • The dumpling soup is very comforting and warm.  I like the strong pepper flavor, and the egg in it is perfectly cooked.
  • They brought us more panchan before we even asked!
  • The shrimp in the fried rice was overcooked and very chewy.  It was kind of bland — the kind of fried rice that would be good for breakfast.
  • Overall, an enjoyable experience.
