Tai Won

Tai Won is a small Korean restaurant located across Metrotown. The place is run by a husband and wife duo; the wife is Korean and the husband is Chinese and also the cook. The menu here consists of less than ten items but any of their dishes are a hit.

The first dish to arrive was the Kan Poong Gi or hot chilli fried chicken. This actually wasn't spicy at all and even though the two fried dishes we ordered were both yummy, we all ended up preferring this over the tang soo yook.

The second dish was brought to our table, the Tang Soo Yook or sweet and sour fried pork. This came piping hot in an enormous bowl. The tang soo yook tastes just like the Chinese version of sweet and sour pork, minus the red colour.

Next, we had the Jaeng Ban Jja Jang, which is black bean noodles enough for 2 to 3 people.

We also ordered a one person serving of Jjam Pong to share since this dish consisting of seafood and vegetable noodle soup is really spicy (and also super delicious).

The two small banchan served at the beginning of the meal consists of pickled lettuce and pickled radish.

I highly recommend this place to anyone because it is a bang for your buck with the good eats and more than generous portions. The next time I revisit Tai won, I plan on trying their dumplings, which also seems like a popular dish here.
