Korean cuisine is largely based upon rice, vegetables, and meats. Traditional Korean meals are noted for the number of side dishes (banchan) that accompany steam-cooked short-grain rice. Kimchi is served often, sometimes at every meal. Commonly used ingredients include sesame oil, doenjang (fermented bean paste), soy sauce, salt, garlic, ginger, pepper flakes and gochujang (fermented red chili paste).
Sometimes, Language barrier becomes a hindrance. Based on my experience, we misunderstood each other well thats why I was served more than enough of what I can eat and ended up paying more. Nevertheless, the food was worth the payment.
It is a modern public recreation space in the heart of the City.
