Another Positive Experience at RoHan--Richmond District

I know I post about this place a lot, but it is 30 steps from my house. I don't go there just for that reason, but on a nasty night like last night it is perfect (or any other time for that matter.)

We had:
Kimchi
Wok Sautéed Edamame with Garlic
Calamari
Bulgogi
Fried tofu with edamame
Kalbi

The kimchi was made with something (not cabbage) and had slices of zucchini in it as well. It was good, but my first experience with kimchi, so I am not one to judge. My chowhound mother loved it though.

Wok sautéed edamame with garlic are out of this world. They are salty, come out warm, and are JUST wonderful. I could eat these all night. They are a great bar snack if you are just going for drinks too. (They also have regular rock salted edamame as well.)

Calamari was as good as ever. Firm, not chewy, with a nice hint of spice.

Bulgogi was a let down this time. Usually the beef is much moister. Plus, the lettuce for the wraps was too tough and thick and detracted from the flavor of everything else. All in all, not terrible, but just ok.

Fried tofu with edamame would convert any tofu hater. The outside is cooked hard/crispy and the insides are almost liquid. They are perfectly sautéed and at the end shelled edamame are sprinkled on top. YUM! This was mom and boyfriends favorite.

My favorite were the kalbi (beef short ribs). They were tender, juicy, caramelized nicely and JUST wonderful. They had a nice beefy flavor.

With 6 drinks, 2 glasses of wine and food, before tip, the bill was $74. (If we had sat at the bar the price would have been 1/2 that because of the Wednesday special is that all drinks and most menu items are half off.)

All in all another wonderful dinner there. I truly think it is a gem if you are tired of the regular Korean restaurants in the 'hood, or want more of a leisurely feel. The music was a mix of reggae and mellow funk on this night, but that varies.

Happy Chowing!
