The One With School Food – Korean Food With A Twist

The signature Mari combo was certainly interesting; of the three types of rice rolls served, the curry chicken Mari was certainly the most distinctive in terms of taste. The Mama-styled salad, on the hand, was a tad of a disappointment. To put it simply, it was a simple salad with pieces of crispy kimchi noodles added for that Korean twist. Not what I would call groundbreaking.

I can see why it is popular with younger diners, but it certainly didn’t deserve the reputation. No reservation policy, surly staff manning the queue counter didn’t really enhance my first experience. Which was a pity as the concept is great, at least in theory. I wonder if they do better in Korea.
