Re: “Sampling Montréal's Korean Cuisine at Kantapia

Being Korean myself and reading the items you had, it seems like this would be a wonderful place to get the real thing. Eating my mother's cuisine, a native from South Korea in a little town near the DMZ, and many of her friends whose food I ate growing up, I would say that there is some difference from family to family on how you prepare items. But, that is like every cuisine. I know you said you're not that familiar with Korean cuisine, but the items you mentioned are classic. I believe you shouldn't compare kimbop to maki. It's like comparing apples with oranges. All the seafood pancakes and vegetable pancakes I've had in my lifetime have been omelet thick and a bit doughy, just like your description; I've never had them thin and crisp. The batter you mix the items in is very much like a pancake batter but thicker; so it's very difficult to get a thin pancake with all the other items in the batter as well which will naturally "bulk" up the pancake. The rice cakes look nothing similar to gnocchi. I believe you are trying to compare once again an item that people are not too familiar with (rice cake) to an item people may know (gnocchi). Gnocchi is a potato pasta that contains potato, flour, and egg. Rice cake is exactly that. Rice cooked down with some salt added and then pressed to formation. I have to disagree with you about the sweetness of it. Rice cake itself is not sweet...I would say that the red pepper paste which is the base of the sauce in the dish you ate had some sugar added to take off the heat. Every cuisine is beautiful and Korean cuisine is no different in that aspect. I don't believe you should be recommending or not recommending a dining establishment if you don't really have a full understanding of the cuisine in the first place. I am excited for your report solely to have an option that is closer by to me to choose to dine at for a cuisine that you normally only find in larger urban areas.
