in the quest for supporting ma & pa cottage industry and homegrown/worldly cuisine that blows the so-called cordon bleu and college trained punk kids in the masses at most other places, we seem to frequent quite often cool digs just outskirts of high margin downtown and market central. check out dolsot cafe korean restaurant run by earnest ma and daughter with their korean home secret recipes that we sense fantastic value, generous portions and are full-flavored. this place doesn't have fancy decor at all but these are the gems that have great dishes that sometimes you have to enjoy with your eyes closed to the atmosphere. so generally speaking this ain't a place to take first (superficial) dates with folks impressed by being marinated in SATC, disney and hollywood. but if your dates and companions like ma & pa shops, you'll know your date clicks with substance, dining experience apart from pretentious atmosphere of glitz and glam... and likely more into the things that matter in life! always noticed quite a lot of take out orders here...! seems that value and good korean flavas are most excellent here.

table top grillin @ the dolsot. love korean food as there are no useless high glycemic carbs in their diet. the flavors are all there and you don't feel the food coma hitting you wrecking havok on your metabolism and organs promoting quicker aging. here you'll get a more comfortable feeling satiety moreso with moderation!

the KEY flavor at this table top grilling shin dig here was the GOH CHU JANG sauce so much so that the battle between north and south korean ends here babygirl. dip your meats and veggies and use the rice as a flavor bed to mix the flavas to mouthgasmic delights. house-made of korean red pepper, soybean paste and other ingredients. go and ask and you'll pop by next door to arum grocery to pick 'em up.

So after numerous, drive-bys(that is so grammatically wrong!) I finally stopped in the grocery to check out the selection.

Really good assortment of Korean and Japanese related items. I think they probably have the best selection for sushi making items.

They have a really interesting assortment of pickled items in their coolers. Lots of variety for people looking for seaweed. I know the Koreans are really big on seaweed.

Not much in the way of produce.

An interesting note, the lady at the cash told me that you can phone in to order marinated meats to barbeque at home. She also said that they could also show people how to make it themselves.

Bonus: They have this faux- computer tower that is actually a storage container for rice(RHS of cash). A must have for the computer geek on your Christmas list.

While I am by no means a kimchi connasseur, it was yummy (and very very spicy!).

After an aquaintance extolled the virtues of Korean food (he taught English in Korea for a year), I thought I'd try out the Bibimbap at Arum. My friends had safe - yet bland - deep fried chicken balls with some sort of sauce.

My dolsot bibimbap was superb! An interesting mix of veggies: some familiar (like carrots), some unfamiliar (like gosari). I loved how the rice got crispy from the hot bowl.

I would definitely visit Arum again for a quick bowl of Bibimbap!

Yes this restaurant has certainly gone way down hill.. the love has been lost in the cooking...

everyone I have taken here have disliked it.. including my kids... and the freezer smell is probably what put my kids off...

they were originally the best valued place in Ottawa, as in cheapest Korean, but has been through many owners as this history here shows...

But the grocery store is still great and the cabbage kimchi is still the best...

Try Kwon's chicken house, also on here if you're dying for where the love here has gone...

We were there last Thursday for dinner. The food was not good. I ordered the short rib which was tasteless. My wife had the ginseng chicken soup. The chicken tasted like something coming straight from the fridge and the soup had that 'freezer' smell. By that time, we knew why we were the ONLY customers at 6 p.m. The price was expansive for a 'family' restaurant. I don't think we are going back.
