Don’t let the name fool you. This is a Korean Chinese Fusion restaurant. They use a lot of Chinese base ingredients and mix it up with Korean spices to fit the taste buds of native Koreans. Eating at places like this brings up a lot of childhood memories. Although I did eat jjajjangmyun (noodles in black bean sauce), I did not take a picture.

The main dish I had was the jumbo shrimp ggangpoongi. The jumbo shrimp is fried and breaded with numerous amount of spices which I cannot name. It was extremely tasty and also had a soft but crunchy texture. I know I am contradicting myself but you would have to taste it to really know what I am saying.

I have been hearing non-stop about this place  from various food blogs all over. I just had to try it. When we entered into this place, it was no bigger than a bathroom stall… seriously. Also, there were no seats in this place so we had to stand near a counter and eat our food while people stared at us from the outside.

Besides the difficulties eating while standing, the food was relatively very good and a huge plus was that the noodles were handmade, right in front of us. The consistency of the noodles were amazing. The minus was that the foods were very oily. However, I felt that the burgers were made quite well.

The whole meal only came out to $14.50 including taxes. What a deal, what a bargain! Highly recommend the burgers, which range from $2.00 ~ $2.50.

This tomato and egg dish is one of the traditional dishes that I have consumed while growing up. You can find this in a Chinese restaurant or you can make it yourself at home. You can find the recipe here. It tastes splendid when served over rice. 🙂


Forgot to take my lunch today to work so my boss took me to Crystal Palace which was 5 minutes away (walking distance). When we entered the place, it was pretty empty which was disheartening, because it was lunch time. To make things even worse, my boss told me that this place is not that great… except for the jjamppong.

So that is what I ordered. The dish comes in two varieties, which is regular and seafood. i ordered the seafood because I am a big fan of scallops, shrimp, and squid. Jjamppong is a Korean-Chinese fusion dish. It is a spicy noodle soup flavored with onions, chili, and garlic. The noodles were a bit overcooked but the broth was pretty good.
