Koreana Restaurant

It was good to be able to meet P for lunch - I hadn't seen him for quite a long while. It was a bonus when he suggested Korean food! It was definitely a nice change from the tiresome Chinese.

I thought Koreana's lunch menu was a pretty good deal. There were at least 20 to 30 different lunch sets with popular items with rice and soup. With prices ranging from HK$40 to HK$60, it's not a bad deal for Causeway Bay at all.

A selection of kimchi was given to each table regardless of what was being ordered.

P's beef ribs set. The ribs were stewed in a slightly sweet sauce until they are extremely tender. He said it's his favourite Korean dish.

My bibimbap set. The portion was huge! I loved every bit of it even though I was initially a bit nervous about the raw egg. The stone bowl was so hot the egg was cooked through by the time I mixed everything up.

P really wanted some Korean glass noodle and instead of ordering from the a la carte menu we decided to order yet another lunch set cos it's cheaper. The glass noodles were yummy but we were a little disappointed to find out that the beef ribs were exactly the same as the stew minus the sauce. They were yummy but we felt cheated somehow.

Lunch came to HK$150. Service was pretty good too. When we ordered the third glass noodles set we told the waiter we didn't want the rice which came with it as it would have been too much food. Half way though our meal the waiter came to check if we had enough and whether we wanted the rice after all. A small gesture but we were impressed!
