Leann’s Tea House: Of Killer Soju Cocktails and Homecooked Korean Staples

LEANN’S TEA HOUSE — Stumbled upon this new Korean restaurant along Mother Ignacia, perhaps a peculiar name for a place that serves home-cooked staples familiar to a Korean household. A family of food loving entrepreneur’s first venture to the restaurant business, packing recipes from their Korean in-laws that is then transformed to this short menu of classic dishes that’s set to impress — with fresh, quality ingredients they don’t scrimp on the good stuff and I was pleasantly surprised with the stuff we tried.

Perhaps one of the most raved dish from the stuff that we tried was these Tonkatsu Kimbap – rice roll covered with a crispy layer of breaded pork cutlet. The stuffing of rice, nori, egg, crabsticks, ham, etc… keeps the thin layer of pork on the outer bits moist and succulent. The katsu outer bits give it a nice tinge of crunch before you bite into this roll that gives you a mouthful of great flavors, served with a classic katsu sauce this is a sure hit specially for the kids since it looks and tastes good and it’s certainly fun to eat. A definite must-try.

After munching on their awesome rice rolls, we decided to order some of their soju (rice wine) based cocktails while we wait for the other dishes that we got.

This is their signature Pork Belly (Tong Samgyeopsal) A korean favorite of pork belly chunks a citrus-bulgogi sauce base. Almost all of the BBQ sets we tried are lip smacking more rice, more fun kind of dish.
