I get this question all too often, and I always give the same recommendation – Seoul House! Yes, the service can leave something to be desired if you’re not fluent in Korean – I’ll digress – but the quality of the pork belly, soups, and stir frys have me going back again…and again…and again!
Location: 3220 Dufferin St, Toronto
Seoul House always offers a good selection of banchan and seafood pancakes to snack on:
Sliced steamed pork served with kimchi, lettuce wraps, and salty shrimp dip
It’s like a create your own taco night – Korean style!
You have your wrap and fillings:
That go with the delicious (and very well done!) pork. From there, choose a lettuce or daikon wrap and enjoy!
I personally prefer the the pickled daikon wrap:
And of course…the soup:
We got soon dubu ji gae with seafood, vegetables, and beef (second place after Chodang) and kimchi ji gae. I am a big fan of Seoul House’s kimchi ji gae and hae mul jeon gol (spicy seafood soup – not eaten that day)
Full of vegetables and perfectly salty pork, the spicy broth has the right mount of flavour vs. heat.
I notice that when I’m with my parents, the service is a bit different. A combination of communication and assumptions, it somewhat bothers me but not to the point where I’ve brought it up. I’ve experienced similar service discrepancies at other restaurants…
|For instance, I only finish with the persimmon tea when I’m with them…and the wild-white rice mix|
Not a huge deal – but still…something that I wish wasn’t an issue
Oh Seoul House. This post has been long overdue, and you’ll see me again soon!
