I don't know if I want to blog about this restaurant not because it's my favorite spot and I don't want to share, but because last time I blogged about Korean restaurant that I visit fairly often- it somehow got SO BUSY to the point where couple times I had to go somewhere else cause the wait time was ridiculous. I mean I don't think everyone went because of my blog post, but it just ridiculously got busy with non-Koreans that I am sure I played some part in getting that restaurant known. By the way, the Korean restaurant I am talking about is MakkalChon- one of my favorite Korean restaurants in Toronto. Anyways, I've been going to Cho Sun Ok for awhile now but just realized recently that I never blogged about it so here it goes. If you like Naeng Myun (Korean cold noodles), Cho Sun Ok is the place to go. If you see the photos, you will see why.
Ordered: #13 LA Galbi Jeongsik 4/5
Grilled marinated sliced short beef ribs served on hot plate for $18.95. This is served with rice and miso soup on the side and it it your typical Korean short ribs.
Some of the side dishes that were served, I forgot to take photo of the rest cause I was busy eating!
Ordered: #22 Sashimi Naeng Myun 5/5
Arrowroot noodles topped with spicy sauce and raw sashimi (seasonal) for $12.95. This is spicy cold noodle that is chewy and quite refreshing. This is a popular dish during summer time and I think Cho Sun Ok does it best in Toronto. Served with raw skate fish pieces on top, it's suppose to be chewy with soft bones that can be eaten.
They will give you some Korean mustard and vinegar to add to your noodles but I usually don't add any since it has enough flavor for me. Keep in mind that if you order one of their cold noodles, you don't get any side dishes!
Ordered: #11 Don Katsu 5/5
Deep fried breaded pork cutlet served with salad and rice for $9.95. This is Korean style tonkatsu, a little thinner and crispy than Japanese version. Portions are quite big here so you might want to share if you don't eat that much (which means we can't be friends either haha). This is another dish that is not served with side dishes.
Summary: Cho Sun Ok is another solid spot for Korean food that serves variety of dishes so def do check it out. Keep in mind that the restaurant gets super busy so prepare to wait a bit. Also, I wouldn't go with more than group of 4 people since the restaurant isn't that big and it will be hard to get a table. Other dishes that are also popular here is Soon Dae (blood sausage) so check that out as well. For all you people that knew about this restaurant already, don't blame me if the restaurant gets busier!
