When I think about good food, I think about Miga, which means the House of Good Taste in Korean. This is a Korean/Japanese Restaurant located in Centretown on Bank Street.
We usually order a combination of the Gyoza (dumplings) which come fried or steamed, with a choice of vegetable, pork or beef filling; the Tteokbokki (Korean street food) which is fried fish cake and thick noodle with spicy sauce and/or Pajeon (Korean style pancake) which comes either mixed with vegetables, seafood or kimchi. All can be eaten either on their own as snacks, or enjoyed as appetizers with your meal.
We’ve tried almost everything on the menu. Here are a few of our favorites.
Galbi – Short ribs – Yum!
Bulgogi – Thinly sliced sirloin with vegetables (pic was taken after half eaten…oops!)
Sweet & Spicy Chicken
Unagi (BBQ Eel) Donburi
Spicy Squid or Spicy Chicken and Dolsat Bibimbop (not pictured)
Korean BBQ (we usually have Pork belly & Bulgogi or Galbi)
Their array of soups are perfect to heat up from the cold, or cool down from the heat.
All dishes are served with a variety of sides. Normally Kimichi and another one or two side dishes are served.
My favorite is pickled radish. Fresh, crisp, sweet and sour, perfect combination.
Don’t forget about the sweet stuff! If you end up checking this place out, you definitely have to end your meal with a Melona.
Definitely a spot to check out, if not for their food, than for the delicious cold cinnamon & ginger ‘tea’ that they serve at the end of every meal. My favorite part! 🙂
