Korean Food

Yesterday I found a Korean restaurant and I could not be happier. I am addicted to a Korean dish called Ja jang Myun and since I live in Chicago I have not been able to find a place that prepared it right. It is a very simple dish but prepared right there is just no comparison.

Finding good ethnic food is something that is important to me. When I opened up the menu and realized that this was not just a Chinese take out place because of the Korean characters on the menu I was pleasantly surprised. I even had a chance to speak the little Korean that I knew and the waitress actually understood what I was saying.

Must Korean restaurants cater to to their community, but do not be shy and try one out and you will be amazed at how good some of the food is. The food will have a taste that you have never experienced before, but it will amaze your taste buds. If you can handle spicy food try the Kim Chi, or try the only other dish that places a fried egg on top of rice (the other one is Colombian).

  1. I am so closed to the delicacies of different cultures. One of these days I’m going to venture the U of I campus and see what is out there. It is very diverse with many cultures. Almost like a mini Chicago.

  2. I loooooooooove Korean food. Strangely, though, my favorite dish in Hawaii is something that I haven’t found around here, called Meat Jun. It’s egg that is basically friend “around” a thin slice of meat. It’s so good, but it must’ve been a Hawaii thing.

  3. Hello
    I wanted to ask you if the restaurant you found was in Chicago or in Over”priced” Park.
    I live in KC, Mo and only know of Cho-GA on 105th and Metcalf as well as Royal CHinese on Shawnee Mission Parkway, which is currently closed for three weeks due to remodeling. Of course I also saw that they were about to lose their license to operate!!
    Is there another Korean restaurant I dont know about?? Espero que hay otro!
    Kimchee rules!!!!
