Opening its doors six months ago, Seoul Metro provides a good spread of well priced and spiced Korean cuisine. Nestled within a multi-story carpark, when we visit on a Saturday night the place is packed and pumping along to a K-Pop soundtrack .
To begin we ordered a small bottle of Soju ($9), which tasted a little like a sweet vodka. Warming up, we shared a plate mixed vegi-dumplings ($9) served on a bed of kimchi. The dumplings were filled with bean curd and fermented veggies and had a sweet spice tang.
Then it was time for the chicken and tofu bibimbap ($13 a piece). Each dish arrived in a sizzling bowl that housed a raw egg perched upon a mix of rice, noodles and vegetables.The chicken arrived with thinly sliced pieces of breast fillet, lightly spiced and tender, while the tofu came with a generous serve of fried tofu cubes that made for a tasty base when mixed with the raw egg and noodles. Both were served with super hot chili sauce and side platter of kimchi, greens and bean shoots.
Open for lunch and dinner, the hospitable staff are happy to guide patrons through the affordable menu which also includes a great sharing option of dukbokki (Korean Spicy Rice Cakes – $20) for larger groups.
Satisfying and spicy.
