After taking in a healthy dose of sun, Stanley Park Brewery beer and music, Daniel Stef and I met up with Jeff and Caitlin for dinner. We were all hungry, but none of us wanted to pay festival prices for the food at Summer Live, so I suggested we try out Gyoza King. No dice.. it was busy and there were lineups outside at only 7pm. Okaaay…Norboo was just down the street.
Complimentary Banchan 반찬 that was decent, and refilled when requested. I suggest not eating any of that pasta salad..it’s obviously not Korean, and was so loaded with mayonnaise.
Disappointing Seafood Pancake (Haemul Pajeon 해물파전).
Look at that…..so frigging small.
Jap Chae 잡채 with pork.
AYCE Beef Hot pot $13.95 per person.
While the food was decent, it was the service that really put us off. We could have ate a lot more to take advantage of the AYCE, but each subsequent platter that came out was smaller and smaller, slowly missing items as time progressed. It was the time spent waiting that allowed us to become full, not the food.
If you like to play the waiting game, have a go at it.
