We spontaneously met up for lunch, and decided to satisfy some Korean cravings. I visited this restaurant for dinner, as recommended by troopie kay’s Korean teacher, but forgot to blog about it :p . So we headed down to Gia, a restaurant nicely tucked in between the whole row of restaurants where kushinbo is ..
and to start off before our orders came:
and of course,
For troopie Alicia,
For troopie mermaid:
and for myself,
Verdict: 3/3 of us will return! 🙂
I read on hungrygowhere about the reviews for this place. They seem to pride their signature dishes in cold handmade noodles. This is the second time I am eating this style of cold Korean noodles, and I must say the portions are very generous. There are 2 sauces – one a sesame sauce and another is white vinegar, I didn’t really know how to eat this so I think my judgement of the dish will not be very accurate. However, it did have a refreshing feel to it. I like that there are some pear bits to make the dish have an extra ‘cool’ factor towards it. J
We shared the kimchi pancake. The pancake was slightly oily but it was just awesome. Filled with kimchi, not too spicy (if I had to rate the spiciness, it’s probably 3/5 chilli). Saltiness level is agreeable among all of us J
Troopie Mermaid had the Dwenjang Set (Soybean paste soup and marinated pork). She said the soup was good and the pork was well-flavoured. It was also very tender, and not too spicy.
Troopie Alicia had the Sundubu Set( Spicy Soft Tofu stew & marinated chicken). She enjoyed her set thoroughly and also mentioned how this lunch set meal is a good deal, although service was a little slow and inattentive
