Ap Gu Jung Vancouver (Downtown) | Gamjatang Pork Bones Stew

Ap Gu Jung Korean Restaurant vancouver

Ap Gu Jung K in Vancouver Downtown is an above average, solid Korean Restaurant on Robson Street. We came here after the crowded reception at Guu Kobachi we decided to change venue. It was a wise choice, because there were 5 boys and 2 girls. Ap Gu Jung is not the best Korean restaurant but it has generous portions. It is fair priced. The venue is big enough to host a big birthday party and they are opened late nights for drinks.

Pork Bone Soup Stew | Gamjatang | or as KimYu and I always say PBS. We always have our PBS night at Jang Mo Jib because they always refill our soup when it starts boiling dry. Ap Gu Jung does not. It is mildly spicy with decent servings of pork bone, meat and potatoes. It was actually not very spicy at all. So all the non-spicy eaters, you do not have to be afraid. The pork was very tender and the meat were falling off the bone. The soup itself was light but it can be rendered down and thickened as the cartilage and bone marrow melts.

Korean sides | banchan: consisted of sweet potatoes, kimchi and some seaweed. Some bean sprouts would’ve completed this set.

Sweet Potato Noodle with Veggie and Beef | Jap Chae: There was a lot of veggie underneath and have good flavors. Unfortunately I find it to be too oily and soggy in sauce.

Beef Short Ribs | Gal Bi: Marinated beef short ribs grilled on a hot plate. Tender with some fatty parts. Garnished with sesame and green onions.

Korean Seafood Pancake | Haemul Pajeon: Traditional veggie and seafood pancake with morsels of squid, octopus, shrimp. Mixed with a little batter, some scallions and a little dipping sauce and you have yourself a Korean pizza. Served on a hot pan. The sauce is sweet with a hint of spiciness. The dish is filling and good for any hungry party.

Kimchi Stone Bowl | BiBimBap: Comes fiery hot with beef slices, kimchi, seafood, sunny side egg. Let the rice burn for a while and crisp up before mixing everything. The crunchy rice adds a delicious texture.

Soft Tofu Soup | Soondooboo: is a hot and spicy Korean stew made with tofu, veggies, mushrooms, onions, scallions and chili power. Soft poached egg floating about. This soup is a true comfort food and perhaps should be shared at most between two people. Between seven is a stretch.
