Korean Restaurant Review
Today was one of those hard-to-come-by days when I get to leave the house without the kids. I had gone to visit a sick friend at Nairobi Hospital and when I was done I felt like I needed a few minutes by myself. I searched for nearby restaurants and that is how I ended up at the Korean Restaurant. The food was a lot and delicious, the service was good, and the prices were fair.
The restaurant is located at Hurlingham along Argwings Kodhek Road, opposite Scripture Union Centre. Google maps lost me a little. If you are coming from town, take the drive behind Java House.
I ordered for fried pork. It came with rice, 10 other side dishes and a fruit for desert. I was warned before hand that the pork would be spicy. If you love pepper as much as I do, you will enjoy. The rice was not salted well enough for my taste. I could not recognize half the things I ate in the other side dishes. As expected, I loved some of them while the other ones could get a little getting used to.
I was very hungry going to the restaurant but once the food arrived, I felt a little overwhelmed. It was a lot. 40 minutes later, not a drop of broth remained on any of the plates.
All in all, I really enjoyed the meal.
The day was very hot and the coolness of the place was a very pleasant escape thanks to the foliage and the many trees in the compound. They do not have a playing area to keep the little ones entertained. The grass outside is however inviting.
The staff were very friendly.
For the food and a box of Pick & Peel juice, I spent Ksh. 2,300
I’ll be going back with the kids and you should definitely try this place. Make sure you go hungry.
