As I wrote in my conclusion yesterday about akasiro, we had to come back to try some other meals hungry

We went again for lunch and today we ordered the Dolsot Bibimbab (£6.50) and a Yaki Udon (5.90) and of course the mandatory Asahi beer (twice £2.90).

The Yaki Udon is a meal made of fried thick noodle with seafood. It was very tasty. Nice crispy bean sprouts, good range of seafood (mussels, shrimps, calamari…). See the photo below, taken this time with a real compact camera 😉

The Dolsot Bibimbab, a korean dish made of beef with assorted vegetables covered with half fried egg in a hot pot, was very good. It comes with a little pot of spicy sauce, like the one used for the Peking duck. It was a little sweet and mildly spicy for me but then I am used to very spicy sauce. The metal hot pot was pretty impressive as it kept the meal SUPER hot during the whole lunch time. There was steam all the time. I thought it could have more beef but overall the meal was well balanced and tasty. The rice in direct contact with the pot had a tendency to become crispy which was a nice touch. Great miso soup.

Cost and conclusion: same as yesterday! Great value for money and good food. The service was provided by the same friendly Japanese guy.
