IT’S TIME TO GET JACKED!
You’ve probably seen huge ads at Canadaline stations commanding you to conquer the Grouse Grind. I certainly did. And I certainly did conquer the Grind with FungFuMasta and Olen! 52:42… not bad for my first time this summer :)
Obviously, I was completely famished by the time we got off the SkyRide down from the top of Grouse. As always, we struggled to pick a place to eat, but we settled on Seoul Doogbaegi on Kingsway.
Some standard side dishes. I really enjoyed the sweet potatoes! The kimchi, however, was overly saucy. I literally had to scrape off some of the sauce because it was quite unappealing, not because I can’t handle the heat.
Another thing to note is that only ONE refill is permitted. I’ve never heard of a policy like that…
I ordered the Hae Mool Soon Doo Boo ($8.95), a seafood
& beef (thanks to Trixie, this dish wasn’t supposed to have beef, despite the menu description) soft tofu hot pot. There’s three levels of spiciness: none, medium and hot. It’s also served with a bowl of white rice, which was slightly undercooked.
At first glance, the hot pot seemed really impressive! It bubbled like a violent volcano that I was eager to get into my stomach ASAP.
As I explored the bowl with my spoon, I was immediately disappointed. It’s a seafood and beef hot pot right?
One shrimp. One mussel.
No beef. Are you kidding me?!
Including the tofu, this hot pot severely lacked ingredients. Does it even qualify as a hot pot when it’s mostly soup? And the soup was just okay too.
