Taipei City – 小飯館兒 GongGuan Korean

Value for money: 8/10
Cleanliness: 6/10
Service: 8/10
Quality of food: 8/10
Overall: 7/10


 

This place isn’t going to win any awards for its cleanliness or its presentation, nor will it win any design awards for the outside. However, if you’re looking for an inexpensive Korean fix and you live in the GongGuan area, then you should consider this place.

 

 

It does get pretty busy, so I would suggest arriving before 17:30 on weekdays and maybe 17:00 on weekends if you do not wish to line up.

Left to right: pickled cucumber, seaweed, kimchi, noodles

Refill on these as many times as you want. I personally recommend the kimchi as it is pretty good, however, the rest are just OK.

Left to right: cold noodles, cold tempura and kimchi.

Seafood Pancake
海鮮煎餅
hǎi xiān jiān bǐng
$160

The sauce is a salty-sweet combo. It works well with the fried aspect of the pancake.

This was a solid offering. The pancake wasn’t too thick but still had plenty of seafood inside. It was crispy around the edges and went down a real treat.

Belly Pork
五花肉一份
wǔ huā ròu yī fèn
$300

Great idea on the use of tin foil – saves on some washing up!

I really enjoy cooking at the table side sometimes, it’s a lot of fun. I also put some of the chopped garlic that came with the pork on here, too. It helped give a little flavour and aroma.

The sauce was a salty-spicy combo and was ok. But, it could have been spicier for my liking.

The sauce could have been spicier, but was still alright, especially mixed with the salad leaves and kimchi!

Salad Leaves
生菜
shēng cài
$30

Best way to eat this pork!

Topoki
(small portion)
辣炒年糕
là chǎo nián gāo
$60 (small)
$100 (big)

Longer than most I have seen, they seem pretty authentic.

The topoki were actually really good. They were soft, but retained their shape and flavour. The sauce wasn’t too spicy but still packed a kick, too. They were enough to keep me coming back, that’s for sure!
