Korean Kitchen – St. Louis, MO (Olive Blvd.)

A friend suggested to come here on a Friday night. This place was packed, a sign says “Please seat yourself”, so I found a table sat there wait for my friends arrival. No body paid attention to me … finally my friends came. No body greeted, after about 20mins … a lady spoken in broken English told us to move to a bigger table.

Service was just terribly bad … I understand they were busy and short handed. But having us wait 20 mins for water and menu, another 20 mins to take our order just not right.

Ok … about the food:

We ordered:

17 Banchans:

Banchans - 17 side dishes

Chap Chae – shared among 4 of us. A  little greasy, but texture was good.

Dolsot Bimbibap – “stone pot mixed rice” … stone bowl was hot. I didn’t order this, but friend said it was ok.

Tofu Seafood Soup – very disappointed. i got a bowl of soup with imitation crab meat, little piece of scallop, squid,  and little calm meat. Come on now? imitation crab meat?? not even a piece of shrimp? mussel?

Oh, we had to wait for 30 mins and finally flag down someone to give us our check. They all just avoid eye contact.

Don’t think I will come back here anymore.
