It’s been awhile since we’ve gone for Korean food downtown. Never been to Tå Bom Korean Cuisine before. This is their OG location, which is nestled between Sura and a Liuyishou Hotpot branch. They have a second location out in Coquitlam.
We dropped in on a busy Friday afternoon (around 1:30pm). No idea why it’s so hot inside. Luckily, we were able to move tables, to the ones by the door to get some much needed airflow.
The menu is split into appetizers, hot pot, hot plates, Korean BBQ, stone bowl rice, noodles, combos, KFC and specials. Lunch specials ($17.00 to $19.00) are available from 11:30am to 3:00pm.
We opted for the spicy pork. A blimp in heat but the pork was sweet, nicely cooked and came with onions & cabbage.
Side dishes included kimchi (great kick), sausage with onion (quality tasted like hot dogs), shrimp and yellow sweet potato croquettes (shrimp was excellent), salad, tofu, egg (a light rolled omelette), peach soda, rice and oden-tang (fish cake soup).
Broth was delicious and came with a few fish cake slices and onion.
Stir-fried octopus. This was “spicier” than the spicy pork. I thought the heat was fine but it was close to B’s threshold.
No difference in the side dishes and soup.
Filling, satisfying lunch at TB. Pleasantly surprised by our meal.
