Hola, Paldo Gangsan is a hole in the wall. A delicious, very low key spot in Koreatown that specialized in pork bone soup. If you never had it, it is a tasty treat. Yet, this place is so utterly nondescript, chances are that you have walked passed it, dozens of times while thinking what you were going to order at that other restaurant you were heading to. Personally? For years, I did not even know the name of the place, I only remembered it by its location. True story. As a friend and I had only discovered it by literally just walking into it, as we searched and were in the quest for some of the best pork bone soup in Toronto but that too, is a tale for another day. Having said that, they do have other dishes too, plus it's inexpensive, and the venue is fairly well rated, which you can check via links below my signature. We chatted about going out to eat at a get-together a few weeks ago and decided to make a thing of it. As such, join us, so we can go and speak in Spanish, so for once, it will be they who can't understand us, as we will be ones speaking in yet another language. ;-) When you get there, head up the short flight of stairs and settle in at one of their booths or tables, I will aim to be there about 10-15 minutes early, myself. We can go for a drink or a coffee to a nearby place later, we will leave it up to a vote to the group, once there. I know it should go without saying but if you are coming, please try be on time. We tend to practice Latin politeness, and will wait for all members to come before ordering. I am sure people will come hungry, and you would not want for others to make you wait, as such, be mindful of that. Or email me if you are coming late, doing either one is fine. So, let's go! Yum! Lastly, I can already hear you thinking... and yes, we will go to a Latin cuisine place next. Any suggestions? I am thinking in the West End. Hope to you see on Saturday. -Mauricio Su Organizador Reviews with photos: https://www.yelp.ca/biz/paldo-gangsan-toronto?osq=Paldo+Gangsan https://www.tripadvisor.ca/Restaurant_Review-g155019-d4868739-Reviews-Paldo_Gangsan-Toronto_Ontario.html
Hola! Brrr... Now you can really feel it! Come and join us for an evening full of lively, fun conversations. Yeah, it is cold out there, however we are neatly located just a few minutes walk from Yonge and Bloor! So, no snow or slush wrestling! Watch it there be a snowstorm on that day, just because I jinxed it. ;-) We usually sit in the "SNUG" which is the smaller room to the left of the entrance. If we are not there, ask the hostess, as they may have placed us elsewhere, but trust me, we will be there. Looking at another place to go for a bite, as I said before, probably in the west end. However, we will be briefly switching our location to the Artful Dodger in one of our upcoming meetups. Keeps your eye peeled. Hope you can make it! HABLEMOS! -Mauricio Su Organizador Extra details: As always, we need about 6+ members in attendance for the meetup to go ahead, the more the merrier! Otherwise, it might be rescheduled. Check your email at noon on the day of the event, if you have received nothing, the event is going to happen! Lastly, if you are a no-show, in the interest and to respect those who do come out, as it is not fair to them, you might be removed off the group if you are a repeat offender.
