I grew up eating Korean food, so I think that I have a pretty good taste for it. While nothing is ever better than Mom's cooking, this stuff was still great!\r
I had the Kimchee Chigae and my wife had the Dol Sot Bibembap; we also ordered steamed mandoo (dumplings).\r
So first off, we sit and are treated to warm barley water (which is kind of like tea, but...not really). After a few minutes 2 kinds of kimchee were brought out (cabbage and cucumber) along with tofu, fish sausage, eggs and bean sprouts. All of this was wonderful! Afterward the steamed mandoo was brought out - while tasty, there was a maraschino cherry in the center of the six mandoo...and that was really strange to me.\r
In any case, the bibimbap and kimchee chigae were brought out in hot bowls. The red pepper paste with the bibimbap tasted pretty fresh (we've had this at other CC restaurants, and it just wasn't as good...). To top it off, my wife asked for the egg to be cooked ""well done,"" (she doesn't like the traditional runny yoke) and they performed perfectly for her. The chigae was still boiling in the bowl and everything from the tofu to the pork to the kimchee just seemed to gel really well with me.\r
This is definitely going on our list of favorites as it beats driving to Upper Darby or N. Philly to get the stuff we would need to make any of this! We walked out paying about $30 for the whole dinner to boot!
Pros: Serving staff, food, price, location
Cons: service was actually a little slow - and City Search is incorrect, they do not take AMEX
