Is Oddseoul “Asian fusion” or does it qualify as Asians-hipster? Leo and I suspect the latter but frankly, we’re just relieved they’ve resisted the urge to add fried chicken to the menu just to name the place Seoul Food, right? (Get it?!) ANYWAY…I’m the incorrigible glutton who ate there twice in one week. The first time was on a Monday with Amy and Angie on a catch up date, then Friday with Leo.
The menu is divided into small plates and ssäm platters, but you’re better off ordering the small plates. My favourites?
Tempura Prawns. If you’re going to do a rift on a popular Japanese snack, that is the way to go. How do they get the batter that thick and crispy? What’s in that orange mayo? Should crustaceans be that meaty? Seriously. Get it. There’s also the Squash Poutine. Cheese curds, curry, mayo, scallions, toasted sesame seeds, and pickled ginger all come together wonderfully.
Also eaten: OS Wings, Bulgogi Cheesesteak, Avocado & Scallion Salad, Pork Bun, The Loosey (burger on sandwich bread), and the short rib ssäm and Kimchi Fried Rice.
