After a glorious trip to the cinema to see Mary Poppins Returns, Sherry, MJ and I headed just along to the road to a spot they both enjoy, Korea House.
The previous time I ate Korean food was in Seoul so I wasn’t quite sure how the south Georgia version would match up.
The place was a slightly down at heel cantina style place with a mix of booth and tables. It looked much in the style of many informal Korean eateries in Seoul.
The menu was broad, covering much familiar territory. We were visiting for a late lunch so Sherry took advantage of one of their lunch plate offers opting for the crispy chicken. I followed MJ’s lead in sampling their bibimbap.
First we had the usual array of snacks with their kimchi very good. We then shared some good steamed dumplings and a portion of tteok bboki. The latter dish – a classic Korean stew of rice cakes – was new to MJ and Sherry; it was a hit with both.
Our mains soon followed. The bibimbap came in the usual seering hot stone bowl and was a pretty good rendition with tender beef pieces at the heart of things.
Sherry’s chicken plate was plentiful with a good little array of whatnots including a couple of gimbap rolls. It was all good stuff.
So overall, Korea House was a real winner. It served very good dishes with the tteok bboki particularly warmly received. It’s well worth a look next time you’re in these parts. I dare say I’ll be back at some stage.
