Had an enjoyable dinner with friends at Ah Saks. I ordered the Pork bone soup or Gamjatang. The portion was big with 3-4 large pork bones with slowly cooked meat on it. Pork was tender and falling off the bone. It was slightly tricky to find meat pieces though. Would have preferred the ribs rather than back bones. The broth was well seasoned and had a good flavour. I especially enjoyed the generous side dishes that came with the meal- seaweed, kimchi, deep fried fish and egg roll. They were delicious when paired with my main meal.
It was a Wednesday night, the restaurant was almost full! We ordered a variety of their dishes - cheesy fried chicken, seafood pancake, chicken broth soup, udon noodles, fried chicken donburi, fried dumplings. I was really looking forward to the cheesy chicken, but was disappointed. The fried layer was puffy and reminded me of the kind of batter used for fish and chips take away shops! I later realised this was the same style used for the rest of the deep fried meat. Aside from the fried style, the meats were flavourless... as if the cheese was used to be enough to flavour the meat. The customer service, restaurant vibe and hygiene is excellent. Normally at KBBQ places you come out smelling strongly of the food - not this time! Recommend this place if you want to try a different place for korean fried chicken and for a group hang out in town. It’s also close by to several milk tea spots along Queen St so easy to go for desserts after too!
Didnt enjoy the Ngasaki but the fried chicken was delicious. Also slightly overpriced compared to similar restaurants.
