It's time for a Korean food post!! Was going to write and post this before I went to Ireland, but I was a lazy geek once more... Work and social life overload last week. ^_^
Thanks to Groupon (and Mr B who messaged me to go... hahahah - although I had already seen the deal before he told me) I bought a £28 voucher for 2 for a 10 course meal. So who did I go with? Miss Pinky of course!!
If you remember my post on Old Justice, the pub turned into a Korean bar/restaurant in Bermondsey, then you would know it had closed down and moved to Monument a year ago. A more central place to go to. Miss Pinky and I had no idea how this place would turn out, and had no clue on where it was... It's really hidden secretly on the side street. You just wouldn't even notice it.
We had booked a table for 7pm, which was perfect... an after work dinner. I think Miss Pinky is currently glad to be back at work and earning money! LOL!
KPlace looks very spacious and the lighting is much better than their old place in Bermondsey, which was small and dark.
After getting our seats and Miss Pinky's short gossip on life so far, it was time to eat... I went to the loo at this point after the egg rolls came out. >_<"
Ta-da! Look what happened when I came back! ^_^ Basically this is the 10 course meal for two excluding the BBQ meat and rice, which comes with the package... You usually would pay over £40 for this meal set, but thank you for the discount with Groupon!!!!!
Here's all the kimchi and salady stuff.
Stewed potatoes and pork... reminds me if DaddyChef's Chinese version.
The grilled mackerel was yummy... Practically had to tell Miss Pinky to eat the last bite because she couldn't eat the seafood pancake. Hahahahah. We both loved it.
Mussels were cooked in a light broth. Yummy!
And here you go... Both of us had some beers which didn't come with the voucher. That's what we had to pay separately.
Some light Korean salad...
And some chicken broth soup. Miss Pinky had to shape it with Mickey Mouse ears. >_<""
Finally the meat came out!! Time to turn on that BBQ.
I think Miss Pinky and I have got better at cooking our meat on this grill. Oil and cook away. Remember to just keep oiling the plate...
The meat was kind of fatty... but a good fatty... If you want to eat more meat, it's £5 extra per person. But we thought this was enough for the two of us.
In the end we got some watermelon slices. Miss Pinky wanted to take them home for Baby B, coz at the moment she's become obsessed with fruits, unlike her parents who hardly eat the stuff. LOL!! She's becoming more like her grandparents and me, the geeky godmother. ^_^ Thankfully the waiter said he could give her some separate slices (I think they had some leftovers)... Miss Pinky loves this place now. Hahahahah!!!
On the way out I had to take a picture of this. ^_^ It looked like a street artist came in...
Total cost came to £49.80 which includes the Groupon voucher + the VAT on top and drinks. A little expensive for what we got, but I think the service paid for it. And in fact this new place is in East Central. Those high flyers out there can pay for this... Even the local Koreans or maybe they were Korean visitors came in to eat! ^_^
My geeky rating: 5/5
- Nice friendly service
- It's like a secret hideout for Korean food
- Expensive without the voucher
