Andamiro Korean Bistro – Average Eats
Back in August, we were looking for some new tasty food in our area and found that there was a new Korean restaurant out on Kingsway.
Situated in the former Phekda location, Andamiro Korean Bistro seemed to be busy during our visit and, consequently, there was a noticeably loud din coming from the other diners.
We decided to order the Lunch Special (9.95) with japchae and haemul sundubu. But first up was the banchan appetizer dishes including lettuce, soft potatoes, bean sprouts and kimchi.
We also ordered a small Seafood Pancake ($5.95). I like that they have small versions because regular sized seafood pancakes are a bit much for just two people. This was a pretty good version with a crispy bottom and topped with shrimp, squid, and mussels.
The haemul sundubu (spicy seafood and soft tofu soup) arrived molten hot and bubbly. This is really good on cold days.
The japchae noodles were pleasantly chewy.
We also ordered the Chicken Bulgogi ($10.95). The chicken seemed stir-fried and not spicy at all with little to no sauce. While the chicken was okay, there was little flavour to it.
Overall, it’s an average-ish Korean place with some items better than others. I wasn’t a fan of how hot and stuffy it was inside and it does get busy during lunchtime.
