Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
There's a charming story behind this New Malden Korean – the restaurant takes its name from the place in Seoul where Jin Go Gae's original owner first met his wife. He made a promise to name his first restaurant after it, and it's here the promise was kept.
His recipes and techniques are still prominent on a menu that goes big on Korean barbecue dishes. Expect, then, dishes such as marinated short beef rib, fresh squid marinated with sweet soya sauce, slivers of silver side beef and thinly sliced beef kalbi cooked over charcoal. Other menu items include various bulgogi, hotpots, a long list of an-joo (starters) and ban-chan (pickles).
A short drinks list includes Hite Korean beer, soju and mae-whaju – a sweet pink plum wine popular in Korea. Keep an eye out for good-value lunch menus, and an array of set meals.
Our passion for real Korean food is in the taste. We pride ourselves on calling it authentic as we use the finest healthy ingredients and skills to honour the traditional method passed down to us. We think this should be shared to everyone who loves Korean food.
