I discovered this place thanks to a meeting that was held by my school. We were more than fifteen people, so we had to first do a reservation by phone, where they kindly asked us to tell them which dishes we wanted to get. This way, when we arrived everything was already done so we do not have to wait that much.
Because of this, we consider that the treatment of the restaurant was excellent. Plus, they already had prepared a big table for us.
They met our expectations, and not only because of what we previously said. But also, because of how delicious the food was. Not to mention that it was so well served, that we even had to order the leftovers for take out.
Spicy Shrimp Pizza (매콤한새우 피자)
Some people still get scared when you mention seafood in pizza. But I assure you, that this one is worth to try!
It has plenty of shrimps, whose sizes are medium. Plus, it was topped with the basic ingredients from the combination pizza.
The spicy sauce really made the difference! Because the flavor combined pretty well with the shrimp’s.
In addition, the pizza was less greasy than some other pizzerias. Therefore, it felt nice while taking it with the hand.
Hot Chicken Pizza (핫 치킨 피자)
This pizza was absolutely my favorite!
And this is because it was so tasteful, that after eating it, your mouth keeps watering and eager to receive more.
The hot sauce combined perfectly with the chicken. However, it was quite spicy. For this reason, I recommend you to order this pizza only if you can tolerate spicy food.
This pizza was also topped with the basic ingredients from combination pizza.
Another good thing about their pizzas, is that the crust is thin and crunchy.
Ragú Cheese Pasta (라구치즈 파스타)
The sauce is so creamy and the cheese melts in the mouth as you munch.
Plus, they serve a lot of sauce! So if you are the type of person that likes their pasta to have a crazy amount of sauce, this is for you.
Also, it was addictive to eat it. Plus the garlic bread was a nice touch.
It Indeed feels satisfying to put some of the sauce over the bread before eating it.
Fried Rice with Beef (소고기 볶음밥)
Even if the speciality of this restaurant is pasta, the fried rice with beef was absolutely delicious. Because of this, it was one of the dishes that I enjoyed the most in my visit.
The rice was in its perfect point, and the meat was so juicy, that the taste stays in your mouth after eating it.
Plus the egg yolk always adds a nice texture to this type of dish, as it unifies everything with the slight stickiness of it.
