Bündok is located in Downtown Edmonton and we were recommended by a few people to come here for dinner. It’s hard to define what type of cuisine it is, but it feels like elevated hip farm-to-table cuisine.
The interior is nice and classy. Since we came during a heatwave, there wasn’t any Air Conditioning inside. It was a bit toasty.
The menu changes daily, so what I had when I dined may be different depending on what ingredients are in season. I like how they keep their produce and products as fresh as possible. The menu has a variety of meat, veggies, and seafood options, which is great for people with various dietary restrictions.
We started with a salad, which is comprised of pea shoots, snow peas, English peas, mint, grilled croutons, and topped with olive oil, and Parmesan. It was a very light and refreshing salad to start the meal off. You can really taste the freshness of the peas.
Sea Bream Crudo
This dish was highly recommended by our server. It has sea bream crudo, thai basil, citrus, chilli, olive oil, and apple. A good balance of sweetness and acidity. Delicious!
This has grilled asparagus, deep fried egg, and cured egg yolk. Who knew egg and asparagus would go so well together.
The gnocchi parisienne has mushrooms, green garlic, and breadcrumbs. This was my favourite dish of the evening. The gnocchi were so soft like pillows. Probably one of the top pasta dishes I’ve had in my life. I highly recommend this dish.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by Bündok! The dishes did not disappoint and a majority of the dishes were drool worthy. They definitely put a lot of thought into the menu and use the best ingredients possible. If you are ever in Edmonton, add Bündok to your eating list.
