The Hungry Nomad: Sura (Korean Restaurant), (Vancouver, Canada)

May 23, 2011

Sura (Korean Restaurant), (Vancouver, Canada)

Delicious Korean treats are to be had at this downtown restaurant!!!

I have walked by this restaurant many times however due to its location (being nestled in between two of my top favourite restaurants in the city [Guu and Gyoza King]) I never paid much attention to it. And it was by pure chance and hunger that we ended up here yesterday. Originally, with Gyoza King in mind we walked down Robson only to be disappointed by the fact that Gyoza King was only offering its lunch menu (which is quiet different from its dinner one). So we decided to leave the Gyoza experience to another night and try something new. Sura is located beside Gyoza King. It is very modern and clean looking and despite some negative reviews of the place the Count and I absolutely LOVED it. 

Korean food in general is delicious and as a non-Korean I thought the Korean short ribs and bibimbap here were delicious. For those of you not familiar with Korean cuisine, bibimbap is the signature Korean dish. The word literally means 'mixed meal'. Bibimbap is served as a bowl (here in a hot stone bowl) with warm white rice topped with namul (sauteed and seasoned vegetables) and gochujang (chili pepper paste).  A raw egg or fried egg and sliced meat (usually beef) are common additions. The ingredients are then stirred together (as was done by our server at Sura) just before eating.
