When I walked into the recently opened Seoul Restaurant I didn’t know what to expect eating at a Korean restaurant for the first time, but after seeing that they had college football on TV, I thought to myself if their taste in food is as good as their taste in entertainment than this will be a good experience.

The restaurant is located on 3615 Coffee Rd., and it is opened Mon-Sun from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

The service was really good. I got a seat as soon as I walked in, and they brought my drink in a couple of minutes after that. Then they took my order after bringing my Mr. Pibb, which cost $2.50.

I decided to start off with dumplings, which cost $5.99. They were really good.

They had good flavor, and packed with pork and vegetables.  They were a bit greasy, but being Mexican that wasn’t a big problem to me.

Then they brought me my side dish, which was white rice, and they also brought me a lot of different types of banchan, which are the side dishes. I wasn’t a fan of those because I don’t really like white rice, and I didn’t really like the banchan after tasting a few of them.

Then they brought me my main dish, the Beef Bulgogi, which is beef with onions and peppers topped off with a sweet sauce and costs $15.99.

When I first got it, I wasn’t expecting it to be that great, but I was pleasantly surprised with the flavor because I wasn’t expecting it to be sweet.

I enjoyed every bit of it because the beef was well done and not over cooked.

Even though going in I wasn’t sure about eating at a Korean restaurant, I was pleasantly surprised with how good the food, service, and entertainment was. Although they only had two waitresses, they did a good job of bringing food quick and being attentive.

The restaurant was really nice and quaint, and for people that love banchan this restaurant definitely is the choice for you, because it has plenty of different kinds and you’ll certainly enjoy that.

The whole thing cost me $26.90, so the one thing that kind of bummed me out was that the costs of some of the dishes are a bit high, but the fact that I left full made up for that.

Although they do have sports on television, this would not be my first choice if I wanted to go just to watch a game, but for whatever the reason, if you are in the mood for some good Korean food, then Seoul Restaurant is definitely a place you should go to.
