I love Korean House! If you haven’t been yet, you’re literally years behind. Catch up! Korean House is owned by Chefs Kristina Im and her brother Jayson Im. Some of you may have already been fans of Chef Kiristina’s cooking when she was co-owner of The Stone Bowl out on Airport Road before opening Korean House right downtown, adjacent to Pack Park, which is very fortunate for those of us that don’t get out to Airport Road much!
I was impressed by the food at Korean House the very first time I ate there, and immediately asked Chef Kristina if I could start bringing food tours in. She agreed, and for the past couple of years, we have gone in almost every week, and I’ll tell you what: Nobody doesn’t like Korean House, and I’m not exaggerating.
I recommend the stone bowls of course, but today I will also suggest that you try a wonderful offering called jab chae, which is a simple, but lovely dish of cellophane noodles and vegetables, lightly sauteed in a pan of oil at a very high temperature, which causes the entire dish to take on a slightly smoky quality. Yum! It is vegan, so tell all your vegan friends about it! Beef can be added to it by request, and since the noodles are actually made from sweet potatoes, go ahead tell your “meat and taters” friends about it too.
NOTE: The noodles are not sweet! If you didn’t know they’re made from sweet potatoes, you would never know that they’re made from sweet potatoes.
So yes, that’s my recommendation for this week, folks! Get on into Korean House, order a stone bowl and some jab chae for the table to share, and I can all but guarantee that you will be just like 99.9% of the people I’ve ever brought into Korean House: Full and happy!
