Since I go to SFU, this is essentially a few steps away from the Downtown campus. It’s cheap, it’s fast, it’s Korean.
This restaurants has mostly students that come to eat since SFU, BCIT, and a lot of international schools are less than a block away. Most of the tables are in 2′s and 4′s.
FYI, the store is self serve, so you must go up and order, grab utensils and get water yourself.
When I first came here a few years and at first…..I was like …what the hell is written on the board.
- Ramyun = Ramen
- Kimbob = Korean Sushi
- O Deng = Fish Cake in Soup
- dukbokki = Spicy Rice cake
- Rapbokki = Spicy Rice Cake with noodles
- udong = udon
- bibimbob = white rice topped with various vegetables
I had the Kimbob and Ramen combo ($6.45). You get a bowl of spicy ramen noodles, it’s essentially instant noodles, they use shin brand ramen noodles to make it. You also get 2 rolls of their Kimbob and a small dish of kimchi.
You don’t need soy sauce for the kimbob since it’s not supposed to be eaten with it.
Did you know, it is debated where the origins of sushi came from. Koreans believe it originated from Korea, and Japanese believed it originated there. With their history, it seems like they both have beef with each other. Plus, the war didn’t help it either.
Words of Wisdom:
- quick and cheap food
- authentic korean street food
