Huh Ga Nae is a 24 hours Korean restaurant that is located on a small street at Yonge and Finch area, and it’s also conveniently located next to Coco Tea! I have been here twice around 9PM and was quite surprised to see how packed the restaurant was.

The restaurant is fairly large for a Korean place with normal seating and traditional ground seating. I noticed that most of tables ordered the Korean BBQ so perhaps that’s what the restaurant is known for? The bad thing though, there is no ventilation in this place so you are going to walk out smelling like Korean BBQ – just saying.

Dolsot Bibim Bap (assorted vegetables with beef, egg on stone hot pot, special spicy sauce) - $10

Julia ordered the dolsot bibim bap and she said it was decent with generous amount of toppings. The bowl was hot enough to leave that nice rice crust at the bottom as well.

Kimchi chi gae (kimchi stew with pork) - $10

I thought my soup was bland and I believe the kimchi that they used were not fermented long enough to reach that slight sourness you would get from a kimchi stew.

Kalbi Jung Sik (BBQ short ribs marinated in special sauce) - $19

The short ribs were cooked medium rare and packed with tons of flavor, the meat is tender and falls right off the bone!

Sul Nung Tang (beef broth with glass noodle, vegetables) - $14
ddukbaegi bulgogi (Bulgogi stew with rice cake, glass noodle and rice cake) – $?

I don’t recall how much was the bulgogi stew but I assumed it should be the same price range as others, approx. $14. This stew was probably the best dish we had that day! The broth was flavorful and had the right amount of sweetness from the beef bulgogi!

Kimchi Fried Rice - $?

Dduk Boki (spicy rice cake) - $8

The kimchi fried rice and spicy rice cake were ordered by Sarah and Christine, they both seemed to liked it as well.

I love Korean food, but I don’t necessarily crave for it anymore since most of the Korean restaurants in Toronto tend to offer the same dishes (pork bone soup, kimchi soup etc), and Huh Ga Nae is no different. They do have a few interesting Korean BBQ options like intestines, but the smell really turned me off.. Service obviously isn’t good, but at least they are efficient. I don’t mind coming back to Huh Ga Nae if I’m in the area for a late night eat, but I wouldn’t say this is the best Korean restaurant in Toronto.
