K Cuisine

K Cuisine is a small new Korean place, sharing a crowded parking lot with China Max. The decor is relaxed, entirely unpretentious, and the menu is very much standard Korean diner food, like quite a few others on this fabled stretch of road.

I’d put K Cuisine somewhere in the middle of the pack. The seafood pancake is excellent – perfect balance of mushy-on-the-inside and crispy-on-the-outside, and I love it when Korean places have that special red bean-tinged wild rice. But the banchan – all the little cold veggies – are just so-so. We tried the grilled pork belly: it was kind of bland but came with a nice soy-based dipping sauce. Maybe the beef ribs would have been better – I was watching the next table over eat them with envy in my heart.

Can’t exactly pass judgment without having gotten the soon dubu (the soft tofu pot), that looked good too. I don’t know – food doesn’t always have to have X factor or novelty. If you just want to sit down to a no-frills Korean spread, this is as good a place as any to do it.
