Koreana – Through The Parking Lot Please

After checking out some live music, while walking to the car, I saw a small sign in korean. Then I realized that this was the restaurant a friend had told me about years ago. The one that’s in a parking lot. The one behind other restaurants. So this is where it is! It’s Koreana, and it’s pretty much a fast-food korean joint.
You order at the register and get a number. Then they bring the food to you. You get your own water or drink and your own utencils. It’s somewhat cafeteria style. One of the most popular dishes here seems to be the dolsot bibimbap. I forced K to get it since he’s never eaten korean food before. And because he can’t do spicy, he didn’t even put the kochujang in it. But he still liked it. They give you a big thing of kochujang and I actually took it home with me. It was awesome. And I used it to make my own ghetto bibimbap at home for three meals.
It wasn’t a particularly warm day so I got the jjamppong. The flavor of the soup and the fixins were all fine, but the bowl did not have nearly enough noodles in it. Seriously, it was like mostly stuff and very little noodles. It should be the other way around. So that was disappointing. Add more noodles and I would have been beyond happy. It’s a nice and affordable option for those in University City.
