Well, Corean Chilli took over. It’s been around for years and I’ve been dying to try it out!

Corean Chilli is notoriously infamous amongst the public and Internet. (This is why I wanted to try it out). To be honest restaurants that have a bad reputation tend to have a good turnout of customers. For example Wong Kei on Wardour Street which is well known for bad service (and unfortunately it might lose that special feature in a couple of weeks time due to new management). For me, you have to think about culture and where these people have come from… I’ve watched too many Korean dramas so I know what to expect with service.

I dined alone that day. I was craving for kimchi jigae which is a stew. I had this before when I dined in Arirang two years ago, and have made my own in the past. So I ordered the kimchi jigae, pickled cucumber and a Diet Coke.
The pickled cucumber was not too bad. It had chilli all over it. I think if they had added a bit of vinegar to it, this would have been perfect.
Total price came to £14.70. That isn’t bad. But of course there’s service charge! They ask for a discretionary 12.5% service charge and I was actually expecting a 10% service charge!! Bad!!
I will come here again another time in the future when I’m bored to try out their jajangmyeon (black bean noodles).
p.s. I thank the waiter in Korean, who was surprised, heheh.
– Service charge of 12.5%!
