Having a craving for bibimbap one day, we headed to Korean Garden BBQ… another place in Chinatown I’d been meaning to try. While we didn’t order any of the BBQ dishes, what we did order was really good.
First, the banchans we were given were all fresh and tasty… not a bad one in the bunch. The kim chee was fresh, and just fermented enough to give it some tang. We polished all of them off with our meals, and resisted the urge to ask for more.
The dolsat bibimbap was really good, and tasty even without the supplemental chili sauce, which I added sparingly. It added quite a nice flavor, and enough heat so that my mouth was burning a bit by the time I was almost finished. Of course, around this time I was also scraping out the yummy crispy bits of rice stuck to the hotpot. Absolutely delicious! The only thing that I didn’t like so much was that the egg was so well mixed in with the rice, at first I thought they’d forgotten to add it. Once I found it hidden in there, I just mixed it even more and it was fine.
Adam ordered the yook kye tang, which consisted of shredded beef, glass noodles, and egg in a semi spicy red broth, which was also delicious.
Overall, we were both impressed with the quality and flavors here, and found it to be one of the best Korean restaurants we’ve been to in Vegas so far. The restaurant is modern and clean, and the service was quick and efficient. We’ll definitely be returning to try the BBQ, as well as the mool naeng myun; one of my favorite summertime dishes!
