Scouring for a place to eat lunch is getting quite difficult since I’ve been to a majority of the restaurants in Downtown Vancouver. It was a rainy day, so we decided to go down under into the Bentall Towers but then we realized there’s a good amount of shops and restaurants down there.

One place that caught my eye was Ridia Garden, at first I thought it was a sushi restaurant because of the word ‘garden’. Taking a closer look at the menu, they have Korean dishes as well as a lot of Western food like salad, sandwiches, mac and cheese, and lasagna.

They have a lot of seating inside, so it is quite suitable for bringing a group of coworkers.

Kimchi Fried Rice with Daily Soup was a large portion for lunch. The kimchi fried rice was ok, but it fell a bit flat. It definitely needed a bit more love to it. Perhaps a bit of beef to go with it. Or a fried egg would be amazing.

Japchae is Korean dish made of sweet potato noodles with veggies and beef.  It was a large size too, so Mags had to take half of it back to the office. The noodles and the beef seemed a bit disjointed and you know they were cooked separately.

Overall, the food is acceptable, but not the best. The price is great for the portion.

    Hi Diana, big fan of your blog! I work around this area and often go here for lunch. I think they top the japchae with bulgogi, so I think it’s meant to be eaten together but not cooked together, but I can understand what you mean. I love their stone bowl bibimbap and soft tofu soup! You should try it sometime if you happen to swing by again!
