Korean BBQ in downtown Walnut Creek
Trying to figure out what to eat for lunch this past Monday since I did not brown-bag, so found myself @ Koreana Kitchen for lunch.
LOCATION & SERVICE: In downtown Walnut Creek on Bonanza St (w/ other restaurants like Fujian, Havana, & others). Spacious/Clean restaurant with pleny of tables & booths for folks to sit & dine, pus friendly staff. I've only been here during lunch time; not packed for a wkday lunch time, but not empty either.
MY LUNCH: I got the #1 BBQ chkn plate. Didn't really care for their salad (sliced carrots, broc, & cabagge), but their short grain rice had a nice stickiness to it, & the chkn was chared nicely on the outside, yet juicy & tender on the inside w/ every bite. If I had taken this dish home, I likely would've enjoyed this Korean meal Filipina style & ate w/ my hands *tee-hee*. This BBQ Plate was pretty large, so I didn't eat all of it; I can tell u already 1-day left overs were A-ok ;-)
Final tab was $8.19. Would I come back? Pooossibly...as I got my BBQ Plate another patron picked up some bubbly/boiling soup that smelled really good & looked enticing...might come back for that.
