Seoul House @ Alimos

[Update on 29 March 2014: This place was closed and then reopened in Zisimopoulou Street of Palaio Faliro. I have not been there yet].

One Friday evening we happened to visit a Korean restaurant in Alimos.

I don't think there are many Koreans living in Athens, maybe less numerous than the Japanese in Athens. Most of the Greeks had no clue about what Korean cuisine is.

Maybe that is why the menu is more Chinese than Korean and the Korean part is not much translated in English. There are some extra Korean items written on the wall, in Hangul only. The family who is running the restaurant is apparently Korean, but the waitress is Filippini, probably because the owners do not speak English or Greek enough.

So we gave up ordering single items (the main dishes looked rather expensive, but the price might include several side dishes, as the Koreans often do) and got a set menu, 15Euro per person.

First to come was a bowl of soup.

And small side dishes. Various pickled salads, Korean Omelette, and rice.

Stir-fried veggies.

Stir-Fried Korean glass noodles.

Squid and Prawns in Chili Sauce

Beef in sweet soy sauce.

We got pretty stuffed at the end of meal and at the end a plate of fruits.

Not the best Korean food you can expect, but the meal was enjoyable. If you happened to be in the area, why not?
