Oh! Zzhu Sam Korean Restaurant: Dolsot Bibimbap

It never surprises me how often restaurants come and go… it’s a tough business, especially in a fickle place like Vancouver. I was driving by the Edmonds area of Burnaby last December when I noticed that a new restaurant had recently replaced Lui’s Chinese Restaurant. The thing that really caught my eye was the name of the new restaurant… Oh! Zzhu Sam Korean Restaurant.

Hanbijae LaQua (Tokyo 2016): Dolsot Bibimbap in Japan

Okay, I know that we were in Japan… so you’re probably wondering why we wound up at a Korean restaurant… As it turns out, there’s wasn’t a lot of restaurant options near our hotel and, by the time we had returned, most of the other restaurants had big lineups. Read the rest of this entry

Dae-Ji Cutlet House (Burnaby) – Korean Fusion

Dae-Ji Cutlet House is a Korean fusion chain that opened up in Burnaby in the former Cattle Cafe location. Interestingly, Cattle Cafe moved out of their former location only to relocate next door. I suppose the curved layout of the interior is a bit challenging because of the seating restriction.

Kyung Bok Palace – Menu Change Doesn’t Help

It’s been a few years since we last dined at Kyung Bok Palace in Lansdowne Mall. I remember our first few visits being not too bad (aside from the lack of service which was appalling even for an asian restaurant). We heard that their menu had changed and decided to give them another try… much to our dismay, the menu change hasn’t helped them.
