Tiger Topoki – Korean Restaurant

Before I wrote this post, I’ve just realized that lately, I’ve been writing about Korean stuff! I need to write about my trip to Thailand, but it takes so long to gather all the information and photos. So, for now, please enjoy this post šŸ˜€

Today I went for lunch at Saigon Center. At first I wanted to eat gyoza but then I remembered there is this Korean restaurant that sells toppokiĀ (Korean rice cake) so I checked it out. Their specialty is toppokiĀ but they also have fondue (fried chicken fondue!! I need to try this next time with someone, the portion looks big), assorted kimbap (rolled rice), soup, hot pot, ramen and some fried dishes. I was interested in kimbap and kimariĀ (deep fried glass noodle roll) so I entered the restaurant.

I took a good table because I can see video clip playing on the wall. Nice to kill time watching Korean singers if you like their music. I ordered kimchi kimbap and kimariĀ with no drink because they gave free water.

The place was quite empty when I came, so I thought I need to write something if theirĀ food turned out to be good. I took some photos of the interior just in case. Every table has a stove for the hotpot and toppoki.

My kimchi kimbap came first. Quite huge portion for 80k vnd! I knew immediately that I wouldn’t be able to finish it, but let’s think about that later. Dig in! It was delicious!! I would prefer more kimchi, but I guess no more space judging from how crowded was the fill. The sauce was awesome. It is made from sesame and wasabi! Yes, there is wasabi in there. Okay, the first dish was good so if the other one also good, this place definitely needs to be visited again.

I think I only ate 4 pieces of kimbap and make sure I have enough space for the second dish. Kimari! Deep fried glass noodle-seaweed roll. One portion is 5 pieces, not bad for 60k vnd. It came with soy sauce. This dish was also yummy. The glass noodle inside was so packed. I could only eatĀ 2 pieces of this. Too full after that..

So, this place is great for a visit with friends! Even if you come alone, still worth to visit since you can take away the leftover food if you can’t finish it. I did. Dinner settled!

If you want to try it, they are on the 5th floor in Saigon Center. At the opposite side of Pepper Lunch.

Have you tried it? Tell me what do you think in the comment.
