I have eaten in Ham Gi Pak, Palace and You Me where I go for occasional lunchtime asian / chilli fixes. (Sadly, it looks as though Spicy Island has closed.) All are good but following the recommendation from a friend, with a Korean wife, I had lunch yesterday at Jin Go Gae and, on the success of one visit, I think it wins hands down.
The recommendation was for the BBQ beef but I was after something quick and the lunchtime menu is interesting and good value, I have inelegantly cut and pasted it below.
The Jae yook dol Bimbimbap was the best bibimbap I have ever had and it even convinced me that the hot stone bowl was a good idea.
Very busy for a Tuesday lunchtime but friendly and efficient service. It is though a long way from the High Street but worth the journey.
