Genwa Signature Dishes – Prime Galbi, Bulgogi, Bibim-bap
Genwa Food Picks:
Ridiculous number of Banchan items – 24 plus rice paper and daikon wrap. Steamed egg, which you can refill twice. Excellent soup and salad.
Prime Galbi ($31.95) We let them cook it in the kitchen. Prime short ribs marinated in a house special sauce. Expensive but the best version we’ve had to day. Tender, flavorful, plentiful.. A must.
Sizzling Bibimbap ($13.95 lunch) was huge and mixed table side. Rice with beef, assorted veggies, egg, and chili paste. Hate to see the dinner size! Stellar ingredients and crisp stone pot rice.
Mul neng myun ($11.95 lunch) was also a healthy portion of cold buckwheat noodles in a beef broth with beef, egg, pear, and vegetables.
