Must-try Korean restaurants in Edmonton

Korean cuisine consists primarily of rice, vegetables and a variety of meats. Common flavours include kimchi (a pickled vegetable prepared in a variety of ways), fermented bean paste, soy sauce, pepper flakes, and more. Korean restaurants are also known for their barbecue, which you can cook right at your own table.

Korean Spring

They offer some simple take-away Korean dishes. Gal-Bi is Korean short ribs with your choice of rice or glass noodles. Try the chicken ramen and order a side of mandoo (Korean dumplings) or spring rolls.

Mama Lees Kitchen

A-10633 51 Av NW, Edmonton, AB T6H 0K8

This restaurant doesn’t use MSG or preservatives and is quite tasty. Try the seafood pancakes and steamed chicken. What’s truly great about Mama Lee’s is the cold food fridge with prepared foods ready for you to take home and a slew of different kimchis.

Ga Ya Korean Restaurant Ltd

B-Bim-Baab Restaurant & Lounge

9543 42 Avenue NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 5R2

The Korean seafood pancake is like nothing you’ve ever had before. And, try any one of the b-bim-baabs; I like the salmon but you can’t go wrong with any of them. Try the banana twikeem (breaded and deep fried with ice cream) for dessert.

Don Day

101-909 7 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2P 1A6

Previously called Hanuri, this Korean joint prepares everything from Korean-style sushi with beef (beef kim-bap) to suey choy miso soup (sa goi woo gu gi soup). Try either the rice or cinnamon punch drink for something really unique.

It' All

10023 107 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5H 4L4

They serve up one amazing bulgogi, which is thinly sliced marinated beef and mushrooms prepared in a clay pot. The pork meatballs are deep fried and braised in oyster sauce – they’re simply amazing.

This is a Korean cook-your-own-meat-buffet-style restaurant where you pay one price and have unlimited food and (non-alcoholic) drinks. Bring it back and cook it yourself on the BBQ at your table. There’s an assortment of meats, veggies and seafood.

Lee House Korean Restaurant

Open since 1973, this was the first Korean restaurant in Edmonton. Try beef with shrimp and vegetable soup (so-go-gi-jun-gol), Korean style BBQ or spicy pork with kimchi and vegetables

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
