We wanted to get a bibimbap on a cold day and decided to try Kang Suh, a restaurant located right at the beginning of 32nd street. It is a huge place, with multiple dining rooms, the one where we got seated being quite big, but not that crowded...
They started off by bringing us some banchan, these little side dishes that I am always looking forward to getting.
Potato salad with apple:
It was a good start and I could not wait to get the main dishes. When we ordered, we were a bit confused because they had bibimbap on their menu, as well as gopdol that was described as "rice with assorted marinated vegetables cooked in a sizzling stone bowl". Well, looked like a bibimbap to me, but when we asked, they told us that, the bibimbap dish on their menu was cold and the gopdol was what we call bibimbap. No comment: to this day and as I am writing this post, I am still confused. Anyway, Jodi ordered the godpol with tofu. The dish was just ok, a bit bland for me.
On my side, I went for the bokkum bap, a rice fried in a wok. Instead of kimchi or vegetables, I chose the beef version that was quite good: delightfully greasy, it was very flavorful and the beef was nice. I thought it was a fairly comforting dish.
The meal at Kang Suh was good, although the godpol was not that great, maybe the choice of tofu instead of beef not being the best in term of flavor. I would go back and try their BBQ next time as I am a bit on the fence...
Enjoy (I did!)
