Won Mi Korean BBQ

Won Mi Korean BBQ – Japantown

Located right next to my previous post Holy Dog at 1545 Fillmore St. I haven’t been to Korean barbecue in quite some time, so I was looking forward to grabbing a bite here. They also have Kpop playing 24/7 apparently. If you like strange Korean pop music videos playing while you eat, this is definitely the place for you.

The restaurant itself was very casual and clean. It was around 2 P.M. and there really wasn’t anyone in the place until we were finishing our meals. We were a party of four who decided to all order the exact same thing off the menu.

It wasn’t that we weren’t feeling adventurous, but the one person who had been there before recommended that we should get the Bi Bim Bab. This dish entails mixed vegetables with beef, rice, and a fried egg, all served on hot stoneware.

The waitress who served us was both polite and helpful.  We were brought a mix of different vegetables right before our meals arrived. Pictured above is some kim chi, zucchini, sprouts, potatoes, some sort of fish, and as for the last small dish on the bottom left I have no idea what that was! Leave me a comment and let me know if you know what it is.

I threw a little bit of everything into my stone cookware and had at it. The waitress brought a bottle of hot sauce too add some kick to it. I love most spicy sauces, so I gave it a try. It was mildly spicy, but I thought it tasted a little off.

Overall the dish was good. It all tastes the same if you mix it up; try it before and after mixing. It seemed like the perfect food to get if you’re trying to sober up. It just so happens that  Won Mi is open until 4 A.M. so it’s the perfect spot to grab a bit in the wee hours of the morning with your buddies while everyone has a laugh at the Kpop videos.  I ended up paying around $14 for a large portion and I really couldn’t eat another bite after I had finished. The general consensus of the group was that it was a decent meal, but I feel like I could find somewhere better. Until next time!

Spice Kit

Serves up Asian street food over at 405 Howard St. in the SOMA. They stick to a select few dishes like the Banh Mi (Vietnamese sandwich) and Ssam (Korean wrap). They have salads and three different sides to choose from, steamed pork buns, lotus chips, or ginger-peanut slaw. I didn’t order any sides during my visit to Spice Kit, but instead opted for a reliable Bahn mi to appease the hunger gods.

It was your standard roasted pork bahn mi containing pickled carrots, daikon radish, cucumbers, jalapenos, the roasted pork, and cilantro, all inside a toasted baguette. When I got the sandwich, I noticed the cilantro was a little wilted. I’m sure it was a fluke, but I’ll have to go back just to be sure. Regardless, I more than happily scarfed it down. It was still a damn good sandwich for just 8 bucks. My coworkers enjoy going here, so I’ll probably have another experience with them in the future. If and when I do, I’ll be sure to update this post!
