(San Fran Trip) Cocobang – Union Square

So finally I’m reviewing all the incredible places we went to in San Francisco, and the series will be in order.

Just a little background, we went in late July, and took two connecting flights which was incredibly exhausting. So when we finally arrived and checked into our hotel and decided we really should get something to eat. We were originally planning to get some sushi this night, but when we were walking around near our hotel we decided to settle for Korean food. The reason being that San Francisco was much colder than we imagined! I was about 10˚C when we arrived that night, so we wanted some spicy hot soup.

Spicy Fried Chicken

We ordered the Spicy Fried Chicken since tfung was very excited about getting fried chicken. I have to say it was pretty good but I just wasn’t in the mood for oily and greasy food. The batter wasn’t super crispy or anything since it was in this sweet and sour type of sauce. But the overall flavour was really good and the chicken wasn’t dry at all. The coleslaw type side that came with it was doused in thousand island/mayo sauce which was really delicious. However as a dietitian I thought the amount of sauce they used was excessive.

Kim Chi Hot Soup

We already wanted some hot soup for the night, but when we sat down, we saw the table next to us share this dish and we asked them what it was. So we ordered the Kim Chi Hot Soup, fully loaded. It had a bunch of veggies in it, kimchi of course, tofu, ramen, some rice cakes. There wasn’t any meat in it but it was so delicious. Tfung did find it a little spicier than he would’ve liked but it was perfect for me. The kimchi was sweet and spicy, not really much sour taste to it. I loved the ramen in it, it was done just the way I liked it, not mushy and a little bit more on the underdone side.

Overall we liked the food, but it wasn’t anything mind-blowing. The price was fair and service was pretty good. I did find that the girl didn’t understand my english very well, maybe I have a Canadian accent…..

Service: 3/5
Food: 8.5/10
Atmosphere: Shabby chic Korean
Price: $10-30
