We wanted to go find a dinner spot that was a little more special for 4 people that was opened for dine-in. Korean was on the top of our minds as I kept making fun of my good friend that I’ll force feed him kimchi. We found ourselves going to Kiwa Korean in a strip plaza just off Deerfoot Trial.
We wanted to order everything, but we started with their Seafood Pancake which was full of seafood and the pancake was light and fluffy that they call Haemul pajeon. It was delicious alone with a nice crispy exterior and perfectly executed pancake with tons of octopus and other seafood, yet still held together.
I’m not sure where Miso Soup came from as I don’t recall ordering it and I associate that with Japanese food, but it was a wonderful thing to have, like a hot tea! It wasn’t salty like a lot of places, but it was still flavourful.
One thing that I eat a lot of, and always eat is Japchae and it doesn’t matter what’s in it, who made it, it’s one of those things I just can’t turn down (even if it doesn’t taste good). Luckily for me, it tasted amazing here and I couldn’t stop eating it. I don’t share well, but this one was a nice balance of me eating it all up and sharing!
Then BBQ ribs is something we like to eat, and it’s one of those weird things that I associate as “easy to make” but I never make it. I’ve made it for a work potluck before and it was a hit. I will admit they made it better here as their Galbi Ribs was so tender, and had great grill flavour.
The last thing we ordered is another common and popular dish, Beef Bulgugi which was perfectly done! The soft and tender bulgugi was fragrant and thin, and had lots of grill flavour!
Overall, an amazing little Korean place we stumbled up and it was really delicious! There was ample parking, the service was amazing, and the food was exceptional!
