|Bi Won Korean Restaurant|
The beef stew came with white rice in a silver bowl (as they usually do in a Korean restaurant).

It was a proper beef bone soup but there was a lot of beef bits in the soup as well as some Asian parsnip.
|Not a lot of meat on those bones, but there is a lot of loose meat in the soup|
Side dishes came with the set… kimchee cabbage, burdock root and beansprouts.
|Side dishes: kimchi cabbage, burdock and beansprouts|
The soup came out very hot. So I had to blow on it quite a lot. It tasted ok, not too salty not too bland, just ok. I mainly put the rice into the soup to eat like you would with kimchi stew but I think I shouldn’t have because it was hard to eat!
It was a good meal, I had all the side dishes to cool off the heat from the soup… Unfortunately I couldn’t finish all of the soup because there was so many people just staring about and I felt conscious that people were looking at me… I would rather sit in a dark hole and not be stared at!!
Total cost came to £12.50 that included a £1.20 service charge (10%). Not sure if I should have ordered a drink otherwise I think the price would have been average for this meal.
My geeky rating: 4/5
– Nice small Korean restaurant
– So-so service
– Like the side dishes!
– Service charge
– May have to wait for a table
