Seoul's - Korean Restaurant Review

This is my first restaurant review. I am pretty happy about this development. I think Halifax has some great places to eat. Lots of variety, extended hours of operation (open by 6am and/or past 6pm) and it is all very economical. This is coming from SJ perspective, where food delights can be limited at times. I will never forget coming in from out of town on a Sunday night and being stuck with Harvey's for lack of wanting pizza or a dine-in dinner for supper; although, maybe times have changed. In Kennebecasis valley, where my family is from, there are even more limited options for eating out. When I first moved to Halifax, I ate out a lot. It was fun. The places to eat are just dreamy to me. There are many places I haven't been yet. I haven't been to too many fancy restaurants, but I have frequented a few places and have found some favorites. I want to share them with you. Maybe you will check out a place I reviewed, maybe you will agree with me, or disagree. It's all good.

This post is about Seoul's Korean food. It is on Duke street, between Water and Barrington, across the street from NSCAD. My friend told me about this place, and I have to say I agree with her when she said it is the best Korean place in the city.

I am a creature of habit and I always get bimimbap in a hot stone bowl when I am at a Korean restaurant. Another friend from SJ introduced me to this delightful dish and I have craved it ever since. I don't want anything else! If you haven't had it before, it is like a warm, spicy, salad topped with a fired egg and spicy beef (tofu or chicken)  and is accompanied with rice that is crunchy from the hot bowl. It is usually served with a side of kimchi.

I think these pictures speak for themselves. I can't wait to eat at Seoul's again soon!

My meal presentation: (included miso soup, kimchi, sliced egg and spicy fish). I ordered a cup of brown tea to go with my meal.

The bibimbap all stirred up and ready to eat!

As an aside, this weekend is Open City in Halifax. I haven't been to any of the events before and I want to check some stuff out this year pertaining to food!

Yay food!

  1. Looks yummy! Will have to check it out. Saint John (especially the west side) still lacks good take out. We just ordered pizza.
