ninth gate - only my opinion

need a beer | Apr 17, 2006 08:38 AM

My g/f and I have read so many reviews/comments about Ninth gate that we decided to pop in for soime apps and drinks last week.

We found the ambience to be very much to our liking, unusally upscale & "trendyish" for a Korean Restaurant. Like wise the staff were great, very friendly and ready to please. We sat at the bar and ordered the chapchae, kalbi & gujulpan apps. Chapchae was excellent, the right amount of sesame oil for flavor but did not overpower the dish. The kalbi was very well seasoned and the flavor was good but not anything special. For those that have not tried gujulpan it offers a small assortment of various fillings such as shredded egg, ground meat, vegetables etc which are lightly piled into a small "pancake" shaped thin round of daikon...extremely refreshing. It did however need some heat and we asked for some kojeejung (sp?) to spice it up....excellent. We will definitely be back....
