Asian Kitchen on Olive in St. Louis -- Excellent Korean
I've seen Asian Kitchen mentioned only once before, by the always-reliable Lemons, but I had never sampled it until today. I'm sorry I waited. I had the beef bulgoki (they do a pork and a chicken version as well) along with the usual banchan (side dishes) and some delicious goon mandu (pan fried dumplings). Service was extremely fast and friendly. The owner seemed anxious to please. She gave us each a little plastic sealed container of some sort of orange flavored "frozen dessert," in lieu of the ubiquitous fortune cookie you seem to get at every Asian restaurant in this town. A nice change, even if it wasn't to my liking.
I will definitely be returning to sample some of the other items (all of which are Korean) on the menu.
