I met up with a fellow food lover over dinner at Korean Kitchen a couple of weeks back. After the disappointing dinner at New Seoul, I pestered him (a Korean himself) for some recommendations for good Korean restaurants - essentially where the Koreans themselves will go to for a quick fix for authentic Korean cuisine.
Though he finds the fare at Korean Kitchen passable, he was quick to point out two restaurants that, in his opinion, is way better than Korean Kitchen. Unsurprisingly, both restaurants that he recommended are in the vicinity of New Malden, which is the defacto Korean enclave in Greater London.
Not only he pointed out the directions to these two restaurants, he also provided a list of dishes that we should order and what to do in the meantime (shopping in Kingston) between lunch and dinner. For my reviews of these two restaurants, refer to Cah Chi and Jin Go Gae.
