School Food, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

School Food has been around for a while, there’s always a long queue outside the restaurant and I have always been intrigued. So finally, one lunch time, we decided to give it ago. School Food is a modern Korean restaurant chain that is very popular in Korea (or so I have read but why did I not try it when I was there?!). It takes your traditional Korean food and is re-invented into something more ‘modern’, like Carbonara Tteobokki, fried chicken curry ramen, beef bulgogi mari and many many more.

The menu is definitely interesting! We started with this lovely and refreshing drink – cotton strawberry athie – deliciously sweet smoothie blended with fruits and soda. You could definitely taste the strawberry and on a hot summer day, this was perfect.

We started with the special – three different types of fried chicken served with fries. The chicken wings were my favourite out of the three – wings, thighs and chicken strips. The chicken strips were probably the driest, and the thighs which were slightly spicy were pretty tender and succulent.

The carbonara tteobokki was definitely interesting – in a good way that is. The rice cakes were a little chewier than norm and it was smothered in a rich, creamy carbonara sauce – yum! This would be perfect for winter – winter comfort food!

We couldn’t go past the bbq beef ribs with rice and fried potatoes. The beef ribs were cooked to perfection, incredibly tender and incredibly succulent. It had a nice gravy sauce and full of flavour. The fried potatoes were more like wedges which was a wonderful complement.

I thought the bulgogi quesadilla was a little disappointing. There wasn’t enough beef bulgogi in it! Too much dough and not enough beef, and it needed some guacamole I thought.

Now the mari – which is which is originated from the combined word of Gimbap and roll. We started with the spam II ┬ámari which was had a lovely egg layer outside the seaweed and chili and roe. This was surprisingly tasty but I am a sucker for spam!

We also ordered the squid ink mari – this is their signature mari. I have to admit, I wasn’t blown away by it, thought there wasn’t enough squid ink flavour and the squid was a little tough.

Overall I thought the food was interesting, warrants another visit to try their other dishes but not sure if I would wait more than 20 minutes though. Service was pleasant and food came out relatively quickly. Wouldn’t mind trying the fried chicken ramen next time.
