Soup in February

I can't call this a "Chicken Soup" or "Beef Soup" event 'cause this place doesn't serve only one sort of soup. But soup it is. In February.

NOT FAMILY STYLE - each person is responsible for paying for their own food and drink order, soups are not easy to share. We might split some dumplings and/or grilled fish though...

The house specialty is supposed to be the samgyetang but I'm not sure how much they really specialize in that. The banchan side dishes are said to be very freshly prepared.

A sampler of their offerings, including the samgyetang, is listed below:

  • kalgooksoo (knife-cut noodle soup, choice of chicken, anchovy or kimchi broth)
  • soo jae bi (torn noodle soup)
  • samgyetang (low-salt chicken soup with jujube, dates, garlic cloves ginseng)
  • kimchi jjigae (kimchi stew with uncured bacon)
  • kongchi kimchi jjigae (kimchi stew with mackerel pike ["saury"])
  • kong bi ji (soybean pulp soup)
  • jolmeon (like a spicy cold vegetarian pasta)
  • denjang jjigae (fermented soybean, smells stinky, tastes good!)

They also have dumplings, grilled fish and other crowd-pleasers such as bibimbap and fried rice. Pictured below is the kalgooksoo.

    Samgyetang was strangely oveloaded with rice and pre-salted (and/or MSG-d). Still good and will return to try other dishes in the future.

      It wasn't salty at all. Samgyetang is just not supposed to have ANY salt or MSG already added, but it did.

      I had the noodle soup and it was delish. I also enjoyed the appetizers (including two I hadn't had before). I did not care for the spicy pork because it was sweet (which others may like) or the spicy noodles (too salty), and I did not taste the Samgyetang. I don't think it had msg in it because I usually have a fast and heavy reaction to msg and I didn't have one. I think it was just salty. There's my 2 cents. :)

    good service good company and good ordering . Food was good, not great. Soups were too salty and too rice intense. Noodle dish was average and spicy pork was above average..Like I said, it was good but no reason ever to return. Thanks Warren for arranging

    Andree, since there is much interest in members participating in this event, why not make somebody an organizer and add another table? It can/should be autonomous to Warrens table. Please advise, thanks!

      Thanks for doing this Andree, I hope more waitlisters for this event take advantage of your future one.

      Darn, I have previous plans on that date and can't make it, Andree, but the membership is still waiting for a reasonable answer from Warren regarding his unwillingness to making somebody an organizer and adding another "autonomous" table separate from his table. I will assume no response is his reply.

    seems Teri is now doing a similar dinner on same day. You know how she loves competition.

    January 31, 2013

      I am fine with that. More power to her. I'm glad to see expanded interest in Korean Cuisine. As long as there isn't a dinner intentionally scheduled at the same place and at the same time (or even roughly the same time +/- 2 hours) as some other already existing event, which would be a huge insult to the original event organizer.

    • yarom l.

      knowing her, she did it out of spite. I mean, of all the cuisines and all the dates , she picks korean soup on feb 5 ? Jeez.

    Andre, want to start a second table?

    • Sheri

      Hope so!

    • Andree

      As I said before, it is Warren's event and it is up to him if there is to be a second table.

    If request, they can combine two tables and fit 8 people.

      Nope, they don't have a round table. Only rectangular one.

      December 20, 2012

    • Warren

      The Dragon has round tables, thus that event is set for 8 people.

    Just a cross street from my home. They have very good Samgyetang (chicken) and kalgooksoo (noodle). Though my personal favorite is spicy fried squid. Have fun.

    December 20, 2012

    • Warren

      yeah people on Yelp have mentioned the fried squid, I think it's stir fried

    ooh, didn't know about the squid. kalgooksoo is def one of their specialties and their mandu (pork or pork and shriimp) is very good
