My friend had the Bow Bulgogi House on his restaurant wishlist for a while, so he made us a reservation for 7pm on a Friday evening and we checked it out. The strip mall is quite busy, with a lot of other businesses also open during the dinner hours so I had to park down one of the streets in the residential area – not a big deal – only a couple blocks walk. The small restaurant was packed, and all through the evening there were people waiting outside to come in. Based on the food I’m not surprised there was always a line of folks waiting for a table. At least they take reservations!
Our dishes were kind of slow to come out, but it was well worth the wait. We ordered the Beef Bulgogi ($16.95) which is marinated beef served with lettuce (so you can wrap it all together), rice and all the sides; chapchae ($15.95) which is a clear noodle served with vegetables, mushrooms and beef; and of course the beef bee-bim-bap ($13.95) which we smothered in the hot sauce also brought to the table. Everything was delicious! I’ve always been a fan of Korean food, but this was probably the best I’ve ever had. The sauces were all awesome, the sides fresh, and the meat tender and tasty.
I wish this place was much closer to me! If so, I’d be ordering take out all the time 🙂
After dinner we went across the street to check out E-Mart where they sell Korean food and all the thinly sliced meats you could ask for. If you’re in the mood – check it out 🙂
