I don't think I made any posts on Korean food before because the only time I go to eat Korea would be at 3:00 am after the bar. So my friend was kind enough to take me to Norboo, she was Korean and took care of the ordering. We had a mochi (rice gluten cake) in soy sauce, some type of korean popcorn shrimp and a bi bim bop hot pot.
Everything was quite tasty. The popcorn shrimp didn't taste Korean, the batter was kinda "Katsu" ish but the shrimp kinda tasted Captain Highlander but I like that ghetto taste. Hot pot was good, filled with udon noodles, mushrooms, mochi, tofu and other vegetables. I love all the free refillable sides you get with Korean food (potato, bean sprouts, kim chi, and macaroni.
The hype part was I didn't smell like Korean food when I left, not to sure why.

Note: There is another really good Korean spot named Insadong way out in Coquitlam that has amazing seafood hot pot, to be reviewed later when I go on that mission.
