I went to Core as a friend was visiting from Copenhagen and wanted to eat Korean food. She is Korean by birth but adopted by a Danish family at six months and has recently met her other blood siblings in Korea. So she's got some experience with Korean food. My main dish was excellent, I believe it was No. 12, marinated spicy pork with vegetables. The extra small side dishes (spinach, mung bean sprouts, lotus root) were "Germanised" and didn't really taste like much. The kimchi looked great but alas, was also "Germanised"... My friend's main plate was a special, sliced and fried chicken with broccoli. It would have been excellent had it had any flavour.
Great fresh food.Great service too.Dog friendly place.
it's surprising how many Korean restaurants you can find in Berlin. This one is a nice and simple place. The Bibimbap was good, but you had to pay extra to get it in a stone pot and with meat. At least they gave us free kimchi with the order, which is not normal in Germany. (In korea however you would get as much kimchi as you can eat for free in any restaurant)
I have been there yesterday. It makes you feel to get the real thing in terms of Korean food. It starts with the distinctive scent in the air. As it has been described before, there are still elderly Korean women cooking with lots of passion and seriousness in their faces. It's the place to get the taste you like. The prices are okay. However, that doesn't mean you can get easily full as you perhaps would in a similar sized Thai snack bar. Certainly Korean food and Thai food are as comparable as an apple is to a pear. CORE gives a good impression of a little restaurant, though being labeled a snack bar. Hence no toilette is available! Perhaps that's something what needs improvement for the future.
