Kimchi is one of many restaurants in the H-Mart strip, but its unique exterior makes it stand out from the crowd. With a pseudo-white picket fence surrounding a small area covered in turf, the outside seems slightly out of place from the rest of the restaurant. Inside, there are rows of desks, resembling a school classroom. It’s counter service, but workers serve the food to the customer. The menu is slightly confusing, as there are no real descriptions for what the food contains and the menu items are written in Korean Romanization. 

I ordered the pork bulgogi for $9.69, including tax. While not cheap, the portion size more than made up for the price. It was more than enough for both me and my friend, so I wouldn’t be afraid of sharing dishes when going to Kimchi. The pork isis coated in a sweet umami sauce, while the fresh vegetables cut through the richness of the pork. The sauce on the pork also blends with the white rice, making the usually bland side interesting and tasteful. The dish isis accompanied with lettuce, bean sprouts, carrots, corn and white rice. All in all, I really enjoyed this meal, as each bite offered something new and I never got bored with what I was eating.
