Kimchi Kitchen

Overall taste: 8/10 | 2017 | 847 Cambridge St, Cambridge, MA 02141

+++ = highly recommend | – – – = do not recommend

We tried 3 dishes and they all tasted pretty good, especially their kimchi fried rice. Make sure to order your food at the cashier before taking a seat. They will bring the food to you when it’s ready.

Pictured above: +++ Kimchi fried rice – rice, house-made kimchi. topped with fried egg. ($8. +$2 with pork) [This is our favourite kimchi fried rice of all time. it’s very flavourful, spicy, and the rice is on the sticky side. We don’t usually like our rice sticky but it goes so well here. Our only complaint is that the egg was overcooked.]

Samgyetang (ginseng chicken stew) – whole chicken stuffed with rice, ginseng, chestnut, jujube and vegetables ($15) [the soup is not seasoned and they provide salt and pepper for you to season it to your liking.  I would prefer it if there’s more of a ginseng taste to it, but it’s still pretty good. If you are not used to asian-style chicken soup, you may find it to be bland.]
L.A.galbi – beef ribs marinated in our secret umami-and-sweet sauce ($16) [It’s pretty average and you can find better-quality galbi in a lot of restaurants. The meat is quite chewy and the sauce is on the sweet side]
