Restaurant Akaraka, Badenerstrasse, Zurich

Assorted Korean Appetizers

Dolsot Bibimbap

A new korean place called Akaraka opened in the former Essenza. Being a big fan of the korean cuisine I head over for dinner. Appetizers are a typical selection with pancackes, dumplings and some lovely Kimchi (spicy, homemade cabbage, essentially the korean sauerkraut). The only small gripe was the pancackes, I would have prefered a more crispier rendition and a tad less doughy. My man course was a Dolsot Bibimap, which is a great dish served in a warm clay pot. Essentially it’s rice, meat, vegetables and sauce. You mix everything together in the bowl and enjoy. Funny thing is the tagline on the menu – “as enjoyed by the hollywood stars”. Quite frankly, I doubt that Hollywood stars obsessed with using skim, fat-free milk in their cappucino have a very developed palate…. Nevertheless the owner was very friendly and attentive, even suggested us a korean drink to go with the meal. Prices are cheap (considering we ordered almost every appetizer there was):

    What a nice restaurant. The food is really good, except that they had to cut down the menu during the week (no sushi, no mandus), they are totally overwhelmed by their success. But the service and the lovely cook makes up for it. He used to be an opera singer
    I will probabyl be back for the buffet (I think mondays and saturdays), as they have everything on the menu then.
