Ka Chi

Another meal in Toronto that didn’t involve Chinese food! Trust me, there’s at least one more Chinese restaurant post coming up. After our visit to the Royal Ontario Museum on a rainy day, we went for some stone pot warmth at a Korean restaurant in Chinatown. I guess everyone other than my grandparents were pretty fed up with Chinese food. Ka Chi has an amazing review on Urbanspoon, so I recommended us to go try it out.

I tried taking pictures of all of our orders, but all the men in my family didn’t hesitate once their food was served. Typical.

  • Small plates of Japchea, marinated potato, bean sprouts, zucchini and kimchi.
  • Japchea was delicious and I thought it was pretty generous of them to serve us something that would usually be considered an entrée.
  • Kimchi was too sweet and wasn’t sour or spicy. I’m pretty sure it was store bought.
  • Marinated potatoes had a salty and sweet taste to it. Some people might find it bland but it was simple and flavourful to me. I loved it.

Kimchi Soup with Pork and Tofu (CAD7.50)

  • Extremly spicy that my lips were flaming. I’m not saying that’s bad because I love spicy food. My stomach was also ready for the bubbling soup of spices that helped my body warm up from the Toronto cold.
  • I barely found any pork in the soup but there was so much soft tofu.
  • Didn’t end up finishing this because the spices got a bit overwhelming at the end.
  • Even though it is only a stew, it does fill you up and get you sweating!

Seaweed Udon Soup with Seafood (CAD7.95)

  • For those who want something warm and soothing without excitement, this is the best order.
  • Soup had no special taste to it and it was basically the normal udon broth you would find at any noodle shop.
  • Generous portions of fish cakes. My aunt loved how the hot soup would squirt out once she bit into it.
  • Barely any seafood…if you consider tiny prawns as seafood, then sure?
