Updated 22 Sep 2014; This restaurant is closed.
Lorna and I met up for lunch on a Tuesday. It was supposed to be a kitchen day but the Richmond Community Kitchen at the Gilmore Park Church is filled with new comers with less experience. So, Minoo is repeating some old recipes which I had blogged before. So, Lorna and I went out for dining experience instead. We missed the community kitchen.
I happened to pass by the location where Nooch Snack & Grill used to be and noticed that a new Korean Bistro had opened in that location. A grand opening sign with 20% off was posted at the door. So, I suggested to Lorna to try out this place.
We found out from the server that Korean Bistro just opened on the 26th January, 2013.
This place looks pretty much the same with some paint job and table cloth. It looks nicer with the red wall and table cloth.
The menu is very simple; just hot pot and sizzling plate. You can click on the menu to have a larger view.
We ordered two items to share. The first item selected by Lorna was Korean Spicy Chicken Rice on Sizzling Plate. We asked for medium spicy but it was not spicy at all. This is $8.00
The order came with two side dishes, a pasta salad and warm stir fried cabbages. The cabbages were soft.
What I enjoyed most was the drink that came with the combo. It was Iced Peach Green Tea; very refreshing.
I ordered a Korean Hot Pot. You get to choose the type of meat and the broth. I opted for the Spicy Kimchi Tofu Hot Pot with pork. The medium spiciness was really mild.
The Hot Pot had kimchi, tofu, spinach, corn and a quail egg.
Korean Bistro accepts debit card and cash only.
Parking is at rear except the four spots closest to the building.
