The place was called Hong Ma No, and the moment we walked in we could tell that the food would be good. How? Well, for one thing, the place was run by Korean speaking people and not a bunch of Chinese people operating a Korean noodle house :P. The hostess actually addressed my mother in Korean, which I thought was strange (I don't think my mom looks Korean... but then again, I guess I've grown accustomed to her face). We then proceeded to be seated and were ready to take a look at the recipe.
There wasn't a wide selection of foods to choose from. They either had individual dishes of noodles with soup, sauced noodles, rice with sauce, fried rice, a couple appetizers and some combo dishes. A lot of their foods have seafood in them (in fact, they only had two dish and one appetizer without seafood) and since my sister is allergic, we ended up getting all of those... plus one seafood one for me, mom and dad.
Spicy, Crispy Chicken. These were also fried to perfection. It wasn't as spicy as I would have liked, but the sauce was nicely sweet. This came in a combo with 1 soup noodle (pictured below) and 1 sauce noodle (picture below) for $37.99
Mmm... this was probably my favorite dish. It was a spicy, seafood noodle dish. There was sadly, very little seafood, a couple pieces of squid and a few scallops. But the soup was tasty and the noodles were something different.
This dish, believe it or not, is a noodle dish. The noodles were smoothered (and completely hidden) beneath the splatting of ooey-gooey black bean sauce. The noodles were chewy, and the black bean taste was very strong; my dad really enjoyed this one.
Overall the experience was pretty good. I enjoyed the prompt seating and service, and the food was definitely different. I think I may go back, but it would be hard to order something different considering their menu isn't very diverse. The only comment I would make is that the "seafood" dishes need more seafood and that they should have more dishes catered to those who may not enjoy (or cannot eat seafood). Aside from that, we had a blast... yummy food, and a great celebration of my being free from my 2nd year of university! (At least until summer courses :P)
