|grill pork on noodle|
The menu was more like those food court menu - concise and with numbers preceding. So we ordered #1 - rice noodle soup with beef and beef ball and #7 grilled pork with choice of brown rice, rice noodle or veggies. I chose mine with rice noodle (bun).

Though looked like a sit down restaurant but you actually have to order and pay at the counter then wait for the food to be delivered. We ordered a small octopus mezes, moussaka and lamb souvlaki plate.
I liked the octopus mezes though it seemed a bit pricey for a small plate of sliced grilled octopus on bed of arugula. It came with 2 slices of lemon and just a squeeze of it was sufficient to balance the savory part of the octopus. Simple but delicious.

It was early on Sunday evening so the place was sort of empty. Only about a few tables occupied. The girl behind the counter told us to pick a table ourselves. So we did and she came by to drop off the menu.
Chimek in Korean meaning chicken and mekju (beer). A big portion of the menu consisted of chicken of course. We ordered a small size of original fried chicken with the spicy level of hot and a small soy garlic chicken. There were three big screen TVs showing different channel. Most of the seatings were tables except a few tables with bar stools.

But inside the restaurant was actually pretty spacious and cozy. There were a few booth seating and we got one of them. It felt homely. We ordered a garlic noodle with grilled pork, a bowl of noodle soup and an order of grill pork roll. The garlic noodle was not as garlicky or greasy as the garlic noodle I had before. Hubby actually liked this noodle better. And it came with an abundant of grill pork. Yum. The grill pork spring roll was good too. Though the sauce was not as sweet as I thought it would be.

|Hot oil noodle - dry|
We never would have tried this restaurant ourselves had our friend didn't ask to meet there. I thought it was a great opportunity to give it a try. They open at 11:30 on Sunday and when we got there around 11:15 there were a lot of people waiting outside. Good sign.
Their tables were heavy very natural looking tables that looked like it was carved out of a huge tree trunk. The seatings were heavy benches and on some smaller tables were regular wood chairs. There were huge pictures of different types of dishes on the wall. I meant really big kinda of pictures but nicely done that made them looked like part of its decor. The menu was simple though but full of pictures. Very easy to order especially for people like me who don't read Chinese. The pictures on the wall were actually similar to the ones on the menu. I think they only offered like 10 dishes and not more than 15. I guess they do well with those dishes.

We got a table sort of tucked away at a corner which almost felt like a private room separated with curtain. There were two more parties on our right and left hand side tables which also were separated just with curtain. It's a cozy setting. I love it.
