The Hidden Korean Place

Filled under: ,

The Hidden Korean Place is run by two young individuals both sharing the same passions and dreams. They're just amateur cooks that never studied the art of cooking. All they know was that they both loved to cook and eat. Sharing the same interest, they've decided to open up a small business where guests can taste authentic home style Korean food. Update: They've closed. Will announce once they re-opened.

The place's actually a house that was turned into a food place. It was the peace and silence that they loved mostly about it. Why HIDDEN? It's basically because the place is hidden beneath the mango trees.  Some might find if hard to find the place without a sketch so make sure you ask for them to email you a sketch of their location.  Here are just some of the food on their menu.

Bibimbab 비빔밥 (p200)
It comes from the Korean words "bibim (비빔) which means "MIX" and bab (밥) which means "rice".  this is one of the most famous Korean dishes to foreigners because of its slightly spicy and sweet taste.  Colorful vegetables enhances its full taste. comes with side dishes.  (photo's above this post)
