Last week, we revisited Friend’s House Korean, a restaurant we haven’t been back to in years.
The interior looked just like how we remembered it from old visits: a homey feel with various knickknacks decorating the booths.
After we ordered, we were presented with 8 complimentary banchan dishes. I wish they weren’t all vegetable based ones. A seafood one would have been nice.
Mr. K ordered the hot stone pot. The rice got a very nice crunchy crust which I really enjoyed. I did feel though, that even with the rest of the ingredients mixed in, it was a little bland.
Crab Tofu Stew
I ordered the crab broth tofu stew. Inside were large squares of tofu, a concentrated crab broth with small crab pieces, and some onions and mushrooms. I enjoyed the crab broth which had a pretty rich flavor, but wished for some more ingredients in the stew as it really felt more like a soup rather than a full meal.
Overall, we had a decent meal here. I feel like the food quality has deteriorated a little over the years and service was a bit inattentive despite it being a slow weeknight.
