The modern furniture, spot lighting and Richmond Hill shopping centre digs (in a maze of giant box-eateries) belie the tasty, authentic and slightly understated cuisine.  Bulgogi Brothers is a chain restaurant from Korea; however, this spot seems more like a family run operation.  Ingredients are carefully selected and seasoned to ensure a flavour-packed experience, friendly and attentive staff caters to your every whim. 

While snacking on cold edamame I decide to order something I’ve never tried before (embarrassingly I’ve never heard of either) Makgeolli – an alcoholic beverage made from rice and wheat. The restaurant makes its own version tasting very similar to unfiltered sake with a hint of barley in the finish. After a little debate my friend and I finally decide on a combo for 2 at $49.99.

Handmade dumplings Gungjung Mandu crackle and crisp on the outside, stuffed with spiced pork, seafood and vegetables are a great munch.  Gwangyang style bulgogi true to southern Korean cuisine cooks meat over a fire grill and in this case its fatty beef blackened then wrapped in a wide variety of leafy greens.  Our choice of steak is AAA Ribeye, generously sliced and cooked by our server to ensure the ideal temperature.  Assorted banchan –  pickled white Kimchi, spicy red Kimchi, thick fermented Italian parsley, lotus root in soy sauce, sweet buttercup squash mash, and spinach mixed with soybean paste.

Topped with soy-braised mushrooms and crunchy vegetables,  Soondubu-jjigae is classic Korean delight; a raw egg adds velvety richness, and the gochujang sauce adds an undercurrent of savory heat to the dish.  For after dinner Makgeolli brother bok-bunja/yu-ja is a perfect liquid dessert.
