We worked all day in Schanze, since we are all freelancers, all we need is our creativity, enthusiasm, laptops, wifi and lots and lots of coffee and we are as happy as can be!!!
After a long day of working on a "Sunday" (workaholics we are!) We decide to pass by, and sit outside Kimzen. The voting process was pretty simple, we said, "Say Sushi (Mikawa) or Korean (Kimzen) and clearly since I am posting about Kimzen, we chose Korean.
They do not have shrimp, fish, beef or delicious Manju steamed buns here...However, what they do have are simple Korean dishes, prepared in a big silver bowl marinated with tasty ingredients, served with a smile!
Try the Bulgogi (sp?! I may have murdered the spelling on that, but you will see what I mean once you peek at the menu) and the pork or chicken is deliciscious! You are supposed to mix it up before eating to get all the juices flowing as your server will suggest when they drop it off at the table.
Tip: order the Kimchee or Papaya salad as a side dish to eat along with the Bulgogi bowl, it really compliments the flavors well, yummy.
Another drink I realized they serve here is Rivella! Wow, what a special treat, I love this drink and normally you can not find it too casually outside the borders of Switzerland. It is especially a popular drink to sip on plain, over ice in Zürich, but here in Hamburg, we like to add a bit of "party" to our refreshments so if you ask them to blend a bit of Gin into your Rivella, it makes the evening even more soothing.
What is this Rivella you ask me? Well, its a cross between tasting like Red Bull and Ginger Ale. A light sweetness to it, yet a hint of vanilla cream. Okay, it is like a red bull + ginger ale + cream soda, but watered down a bit with sparkling water. That is the best description of Rivella that I can express in words.
I like to sit outside, the second row on tables away from the street/sidewalk up against the side of the restaurant so you get the feeling you are kinda eating inside, yet with outside fresh air. Oh, and I snagged a candle from inside and brought it outside to give our meal a bit more atmosphere.
I keep going back so I can try new dishes here. Prices are decent, food is well portioned and tasty, and ingredients taste fresh not fried.
So I came here last night and it was great. A co-worker of mine recently went to South Korea for holidays and it got me craving Korean food, naturally, since that's where my mind goes.
I am not 100% sure if it is authentic Korean food but it was something I have never had. It was all extremely tasty and the service was excellent. Since it was a Tuesday night it was not that busy either. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. Now if I can just find a Korean BBQ joint I will be good to go! ;-)
was mildly disappointed about the lack of fried egg atop my bibimbap, but overall MEGA DELICIOUS and reasonably priced, with a lovely, cozy atmosphere.
