My co-blogger, Only and I arrived at the restaurant starving, but I’m pretty sure that did not give us a false sense of the quality of the food.
The Premium Fish Cake Soup was very flavourful, and there was an array of fish cakes bobbing in the clear broth. The Hot Ddokbokki was spicy, but not overwhelmingly so with firm, but tasteless rice cakes. Not surprisingly, the Fried Chicken was a little bland, because a dish of salt comes with the fried chicken, so diners are expected to tailor the saltiness to their own preference. For me, this is work that I expect the chef to do. However, the skin was perfectly done, and the Fried Chicken improved when dipped in the sauce of the Hot Ddokbokki. I imagine the Hot Chicken dishes use the same sauce, in which case, they are probably excellent, too.
