M was on a mission for omurice, which is rice covered in an omelette. It’s very hard to find in Vancouver, so when we came to Seoul, it was on the top of our list. We didn’t know which place had the best omurice, so we enlisted the help of his cousin to find us a place for lunch.
As we approached Curry House CoCo Ichibanya, I had no idea what this place served except for curry.
This particular location is inside Y’ZPark just outside of Honkik University station. It opens at 11am till 10pm.
There’s lots of seats but as we came here a a few hours past noon, it wasn’t too busy. There’s also other restaurants located in the floor of the mall too.
Creamy Mushroom Omelette Curry (9,300 won)
Comes with the rice covered in yummy omelette and smothered with their curry sauce and creamy mushroom sauce. It was really good! One of the best omurices I’ve had. The sauces were amazing a smothered every inch of the rice.
I also have a secret love for mushrooms, so this was music to my tastebuds.
Pork Cutlet Omelette Curry (10,800 won) has a panko crusted pork cutlet that is just crunchy and so delicious. M said this was very good!
Beef Omelette Curry (9,300 won) has the same curry sauce as the others but with shreds of beef.
Tomato and Asparagus Omelette Curry (8,900 won) similar sauce with with vegetables.
You can also upgrade to a combo with a drink and a salad.
In Hongdae, the Curry House CoCo Ichibanya is located inside Y’ZPARK. There’s a few shops like Uniqlo inside as well as other restaurants.
Overall, the food was very good! There are a few locations around Seoul. If you happen to pass by one, definitely go have some omurice there!
