Miss Korea [Korean]

Me, Justine (@foodigatorJ) and Mary (@citrusblack) tried to come out for dinner and drinks from time to time to catch up and we tend to go to Korean restaurant. It's just great, no fuss and catch up kind of meal.

We decided to try out the newly open Miss Korea (@MISSKOREA_BAR) on Yonge & Bloor, nothing better than a bit of shopping before a meal. The space is definitely different from the Korean Restaurant that we are used to in Toronto. It's "hipper" looking with the round stainless steel tables and stools where you can open up to store your bag/coat inside.

Just like most Korean restaurant, they have a few Combo to choose for where they include some alcohol drinks ~ choose from Soju / 4 Beer / Makgurli / 2 Cocktails

We end up ordering 3 combo with 2 Makgurli and 4 Beers (#KoreanDrinking)

Deep Fried Chicken Ddong-Jip (Gizzard) 
~ $23.98 Combo or $10.00 Regular
We usually order the sweet and spicy DF chicken but since all of us love gizzards, this was an obvious choice. Love the crunchy texture of the batter with the gizzards and love how the sauce is served on the side which left the gizzards crispy for longer.

 Kimchi Jjim (Kimchi & Pork)
~ $27.95 Combo or $15.00 Regular
 This was definitely different from what I am use to with the steam pork belly and kimchi. The kimchi here somehow lost it's spicy and sour flavor. But love how it's served with slices of fried tofu which gave the whole dish some texture. Just have some of everything in each bite and it'll be perfect.

Kalbi Jjim (Braised Short Ribs) $18
~ Braised Short Ribs, Squash, Chestnut, Date, Pine Nuts
A very traditional dish, it was my favorite dish of the night and with a bowl of rice each, this can easily feed 2 people. The short ribs were cook to perfection, melt-in-your-mouth goodness that's packed with flavors. I was basically drinking the sauce, so good!!!

Sam Gyup Sal $15
~ Grilled crispy pork belly, home made relish
Perfect grilled mark and cook just right without being too soft (still have that springy texture to the belly fat) Just give me some lettuce to wrap it in and it would be perfect.

Jjamg Bbong (Spicy Seafood Noodle Soup) $13
~ Calamari, shrimp, mussels, scallop, udon noodle, onion, watercress
This was the only remotely spicy dish dish of the night and the perfect drinking food. It's nice to have udon for a change instead of the instant noodle/ramen that's usually used.

 Cheese Don Katsu (Pork Cutlet) $13
~ Deep Fried pork cutlet with cheese, signature katsu dip
This was ordered at the end just to have something to munch on with our drinks and this was probably the only dish that I didn't like that night.

 Miss Bomb Cocktail $9.00
This was their signature cocktail and it was complimentary

Private party room upstairs, karaoke machine included.

Verdict :
Love everything except there's no free side dishes here
Very well priced for both food and drinks.
Will love to go back to try the other dishes or just for the Kalbi Jjim again

P.S : We went on a Friday night and the place start to pack up rather quickly by 9:00pm
