CLOSED/korean: i recommend JIN LUO DAO KOREAN RESTAURANT
JIN LUO DAO (GOLDEN LUO ROAD)

I spotted this random korean place on the corner on the way home from a spa appointment with my friend. It was on the corner and had a window for take away orders, sort of how some taco places have a counter for people who didn't necessarily want to sit inside. Everything was in Chinese, but there were enough pictures on the wall to point to what I wanted- they had all the main things- seafood pancake (NT$120), stone bim bim bap (NT$150), spicy stir fried rice cake (NT$100-120), hot pot (NT$100). I only had time to get something to go, so I ordered the seafood pancake.
When I got back to the office, to my surprise, they included a soup, a dessert grass jelly soup and a side of deep fried taro and tofu. That was a good deal to me!
The taro was so crispy it was almost carmelized. With sugar coating, it was right up my sweet tooth alley, but my guy friend who didn't expect it to be sweet didn't like it.
The freebie sides and the taste of the seafood pancake definitely picqued my interest. Next time, I will try sit down at their small corner shop and see if the other menu items are just as good.
