Beef Brisket and Tendon Vermicelli. This restaurant has their own recipe for the broths they use in the noodle bowls. The broth is super rich and flavourful. Gotta try this!

Top: Korean spicy rice cakes. They made this dish with two types of rice cakes, the tube ones that you see in the pictures, and also a sliced version. I actually like the sliced version because you don’t have to chew as much :) Anyways the sauce that it’s tossed in is spicy, but also sweet. There’s also fish cakes tossed in there.

Bottom: Kimchi pancakes. This was incredibly delicious. When we were ordering, my mom was deciding between the seafood pancakes or the kimchi pancakes, and the lady taking our order agreed with me with going with the kimchi pancakes. Yummmm

Steamed pork dumplings with dill. You usually don’t find the use of dill in Chinese cuisine, but here is a dish that does! I don’t think I’ve ever paired dill with pork, or any red meat, so it definitely was different. They used A LOT of dill in the meat mixture and the strong taste over-powered the meat. Maybe some people like this combination, but I find it too over-powering.

This is another pastry dish and it has fresh green onions rolled inside. I think the deep fry the roll super quickly, resulting in a crispy outer shell and fluffy interior with fresh, crunchy green onions.

Stir fry with lamb, onions, and green onions. I’m not sure if it’s a good things or a bad thing, but they marinated and cooked the lamb until it lost its natural flavour. Lamb has a pretty strong and distinct taste, but I couldn’t taste it in this dish!

These are steamed buns, they’re stringy all the way through!
