The WORST at Koreana

I know some people love this place, but I found it horrible. We didn't do barbeque, was that the mistake?

Order bibimbap, kimchee pancake and japchae. All I know is that the kimchee pancake and japchae were the biggest grease bombs I have ever seen. Seriously, I cannot believe how much oil the japchae was SWIMMING in. Pancake was overly greasy and a texture very different than I'm used to, more puffy like Polynesian-style chicken finger batter. Ew. Didn't try the bibimbap other than a couple bites of the veggies (unimpressive like the panchan).

I was terribly embarrassed for having suggested the place and will never return. There are too many other wonderful Korean restaurants in the area. Thank goodness for Hometown, Wu Chon, Seoul Food and others!
