Korean - Vancouver Restaurants


Ezogiku Noodle Cafe

Ezogiku Noodle Cafe (270 Robson Street, Vancouver, BC, Canada, phone 604-685-9466) serves bowls of hot, steaming Japanese ramen noodle soup. A bowl of ramen soup costs around $7.25 plus tax, and you can also order some appetizers such as pan fried gyoza dumplings. I enjoyed the Kimchi Ramen (pictured below), which featured the traditional Korean spicy cabbage as well as barbecued pork.

Ezogiku Noodle Cafe is located near the Vancouver main library downtown, as well as BC Place Stadium, home of the BC Lions Football team. It’s also a short walk from GM Place Stadium, home of the Vancouver Canucks hockey team. The restaurant is within easy walking distance of hotels such as the Rosedale on Robson, Westin Grand, and the Hampton Inn and Suites.

More Korean food on Robson Street

I went back to Book Kyung Ban Jeoun Korean Restaurant (1638 Robson Street, Vancouver, phone 604-689-3898, more info) and enjoyed the Bi Bim Bop, a traditional Korean dish that is rice in a hot stone bowl with a selection of seasoned roots and vegetables, mushrooms, and beef (pictured below, around $11.00). It was served with a delicious spicy soup broth with onion, and a very hot sauce.
