You name it, I’ll probably eat it.
And it’s not because I watch Korean dramas. (I don’t.) And it’s not because I love spicy foods. (I do, but my stomach doesn’t.)
It’s the big, robust, no-shame flavors of this cuisine that make it one of my favorites.
So I’m always looking for the restaurant that’s going to serve me the best.
I’ve asked my friends — virtual and real-life ones — what Korean restaurants rank in their Top 3. Consistently, Sorabol Korean Restaurant on Keeaumoku Street make the list. Sometimes at the top, sometimes rounding out the three.
The thing is — and I can already hear the hush of shock — I have never been there. Never. I’ve wanted to — and I’ve been asked to go, especially by my girlfriend, Luana, who can’t seem to live without Korean food — but I just never went. Mostly because I have hole-in-the-wall mainstays that I’m loyal to. And mostly because I didn’t buy the hype.
So the other day, I caved. (Well, and I was craving meat juhn.) So I went.
Here’s what our recent visit looked like:
