An Urbanspoon Observation
3 spoons out of 5
Vic and I went to Boom Beer with some friends for dinner tonight based on Urbanspoon reviews. I feel I would have liked this more if I hadn't read the reviews first, because the reviews left me with such high expectations that I felt a little disappointed when we actually started eating. Don't get me wrong; the food itself was pretty good, but it wasn't mind-blowingly awesome.
We first ordered the corn cheese (yes, you read that right - corn, butter and cheese on a hot plate) - was an interesting flavour and at $6.95, didn't really feel like I got an authentic experience. It felt like I was eating corn niblets with shredded Kraft cheese on top. Don't mind eating like this at home when I have nothing else on hand, but I don't think that I would order this again.
This one was interesting too - it's called a cheese booldak, which basically meant spicy chicken pieces over some cheese and some gnocchi-type noodle on a hot plate. It was not bad - interesting flavour combination but I felt like there was something a little off about it. Would I order it again? Probably not. Would I nibble on it if someone else ordered it? Probably.
So the spicy/sweet chicken was just not my thing, but it's a personal preference as I'm not much for marinaded chicken. BUT, the fried chicken was really, really good! The batter was the right kind of crispy, it was flavourful and the chicken was still tender. The marinaded chicken was ok - tasted a lot like the booldak (see above) but was pretty heavy on the marinade so I ended up scraping a lot of it off.
Overall, the fried chicken was really good and had convinced me enough to at least give this place a try again. Would I order the same things? I would order the fried chicken again and would try some of the other things, but I wouldn't order the other ones.
