Quick Korean lunch @ Jin Luo Bao Restaurant

I would occasionally crave for Korean food and this place was recommended by my neighbour. I haven’t had Korean food for a while now and came here one weekend with Hubby as he was craving for some good bibimbap. We came here late afternoon and since it was after the lunch hour rush, we were seated immediately!

The one thing I love about Korean restaurants is the banchans – 9 different side dishes – it can be a meal on its own! My favourite would have to be kimchi, the hotter the better. Thankfully this is not Hubby’s favourite – so more for me.

Without a doubt, Hubby ordered the dolsott bibimbap – bowl of warm white rice topped with sautéed and seasoned vegetables and chili pepper taste with both raw egg and sliced beef. The ingredients are all stirred together thoroughly just before eating, and was served in a hot warm stone pot. The bimbimbap was hot, absolutely delicious and full of flavours, it was fantastic! I love how the rice sticks to the bottom forming a nice crust.

I was craving (believe it or not) bbq beef ribs. The beef were tender and succulent. It was served in a hot plate and was flavoursome. It definitely satisfied my cravings for beef ribs.

The menu was quite extensive, ranging from noodles to rice, to soups and stir fries, all reasonably priced. The portions were reasonable and service quite good. Although I was a little annoyed one of the waitress brought over the bill when we didn’t ask for it, but it was so we could get an extra 10% or 15% off before 3pm – which I guess made up for it, I mean who doesn’t like discounts?!?!

It was a quick lunch with Hubby before shopping – no, not shopping for me, shopping for Hubby. We shopped for a good 3 – 4 hours and all he bought during that time, wait for it, 2 pairs of shoes! If that was me, I would have definitely bought a lot more than just 2 pairs of shoes. Lucky I was well fed, as shopping with Hubby can be an extremely long process (which it was!)
