Donkass and Fried Rice in Sangdo dong
I spotted this restaurant not far from the bus terminal, and it sounded like a good idea from outside.
The interior is kind of eclectic, but the menu is pretty simple. simple. They offer various fried cutlets, and fried rice. Most things on the menu are under 10,000. It was a good idea.
We ordered a Japanese style donkatsu (They also have western style sauce as an option) and a rolled chicken cheese cutlet.
Alas, the food was mediocre, and it took a long time to come out of the kitchen despite the fact that we were the only ones there at lunch time. (A group of ajummas did leave right as we sat down and ordered. It looked like they had ordered the hambak steak.) We were not impressed, but we did eat everything (We were really hungry by the time it got to us!) The salad was drowning in a weird chunky citrus dressing, and the meat was dry.
The most delicious thing on the plate was the odd bowl of tomato salad. It reminded me of pico de gallo, or onion chutney. It was neither, yet oddly delicious. It’s the first time we’ve seen this kind of dish in Korea. I wish it was more popular, as I love tomato salads. However, that was not enough to make us recommend this restaurant.
The restaurant is connected to this cafe inside. The setup is a bit strange. We didn’t feel like trying it. Let us know if you have.
