ISO Dak Galbi in Montreal

I'm not very familiar with Koreen food but I really like Dak Galbi, anybody know where I can go for some of this awesome spicy chicken?

  1. Not very hopeful:

    "Montreal has great food, but not a great selection of Korean food. NO ONE offered Dak Galbi. How do I know this? I called every Korean restaurant in downtown Montreal. They said they didn’t have the market for it" (from 2013)

    *But* there are a ton of Korean restos in NDG so maybe one of them makes it. I will be interested to find out too. I haven't found Montreal's Korean restos to be strong in the chicken department.

      I've had this dish years ago at Hwang Kum. I don't know if it's still on the menu.

      Well, minus the cheese which I have not found in other descriptions of dak galbi.

        OK, that's a great lead.

        My Google-fu found this photo from 10 months ago, claiming to be "Dak galbi with soju" at Chez Hwang, so now you have two possibilities to check out, both in NDG.

        Hwang Kum
        5908 Rue Sherbrooke West
        (514) 487-1712

        Chez Hwang
        5545 Upper Lachine Rd
        (514) 484-5263

        Let us know if you find it!

          Maru might also have it? They have a big menu though I never noticed if they have it or not, either way their food is great.
