韓式壽司 – Korean sushi($27)

These were tasty. With spam, pickle, carrot, egg and green veg tightly rolled, wrapped round with seaweed.  I have always preferred Japanese sushi than Korean sushi, but this has surely changed my mind.  Our server nicely gave us this red Korean spicy sauce for us to dip the sushi roll into it, it was a true match! Do not worry the sauce is not too spicy, just a tint of spiciness.  The rolls are bigger than normal sushi roll, and packed with fillings.

韓式魚蛋 – Korean Fish cake ($12)

Just like in Hong Kong, Koreans have fish cakes as street snacks too (we ahve fish balls).  In Korea the fish cake comes on a stick/ skewer with a bowl of soup too. So I was pretty disappointed that the fish cake here did not come on a skewer.  The ones in Korea are slightly spicy and bigger in size.  Hon Dim’s fish cakes isn’t bad but lacked in flavor, no spiciness and the soup was bland.  It coudl have improved if it came super hot.

豬肉蓋飯 – Rice with pan fried pork ($30)

The portion of this rice was surprisingly big for $30 hkd only, enough for two people.  The lean pork was pan fried with lots of onion which added to the texture, lots of sauce and very dense in flavour.  I love how they sprinkle roasted white sesame on the pork, made the dish really fragrant! Definitely a good rice dish.

Ambience

It is a small takeaway shop with only four bar seats.  Mostly for takeaways, and cannot imagine sitting there for half hour.  The shop isn’t too muchd ecorated, makes me feel like I am in a shabby Korean takeaway shop.
