After another Japanese lesson (my bag has started to get heavier at this point). Too much learning. I haven't been so keen in learning a new language since my first year when learning Mandarin!
This time I wanted to eat Korean and I actually wanted something a bit different to what I would usually eat.
I stumbled across Bi Won a long time ago whilst walking from Holborn to Tottenham Court Road, just never tried this place. I think Bi Won 비원 means "The Secret Garden". Heheh, it looks very secretive from its location point!!

As I entered I was greeted by a busy looking woman who looked slightly annoyed as there were hardly any seats around for just one person although I think there was sitting upstairs (not sure about that). Well anyway, I got a table in the end and I had a flick through the menu. There was so much to choose from and I just didn't know what to choose!!
Didn't want anything spicy so I chose this beef stew set (I think this is galbitang). It's something different from what I would usually get...
|Stew and rice|
|Not a lot of meat on those bones, but there is a lot of loose meat in the soup|
|Side dishes: kimchi cabbage, burdock and beansprouts|
My geeky rating: 4/5
- Nice small Korean restaurant
- So-so service
- Like the side dishes!
- Service charge
- May have to wait for a table
