Hee Rae Dung Korean Chinese Coquitlam 喜來燈 | Casual Home Cooked Korean

Hee Rae Dung Korean Chinese Restaurant Coquitlam North Road

 

 

Hee Rae Dung Korean Chinese Coquitlam 喜來燈 is a small homey Korean restaurant located in the same plaza as RBC and Extra Foods. This restaurant is quite popular amongst the Korean community and it was my Korean friend’s mom whom highly recommended it to us. Hee Rae Dung features a lot of casual home cooked dishes which you will find a lot of similarities to Northern China Cuisine and Korea. Prices here are expensive with entrees $15+ – however given the portion size it is forgiven. Service is friendly and prompt but it also helped that my friend speaks Korean.  Hee Rae Dung has a lot of family combo dinners with a variety of noodles, stir fry, soups, etc. This is not a Korean BBQ restaurant, do don’t expect grills at your table.

 

We ordered Combo A $26.90 : Tang Su Yuk, Jjam Bong, Ja Jang Myun and added Yang Jang Pi platter. Since portions are fairly large. Don’t go crazy and over order.

Yang Jang Pi 24.40: Seafood, beef, vegetables, clear glass noodles with spicy mustard sauce. This platter has a lot of variety and the presentation is quite pretty. You need to mix everything together like you would a salad. I think this looked much prettier than it tasted. It was sort of bland. More onions, noodles and shrimp would better justify 24.40.

Ja Jang Myun: noodles with black bean sauce, onion, and pork. This is similar to Zhajiangmian 醡醬麵 in Northern China but not in South China. This Ja Jang Myun has a lot of sauce and personally I would have preferred something drier. The flavors were mild with a touch of sweetness. Thankfully they noodles were chewy and not soggy despite the sauce.

Jiam Bong: Spicy noodle soup with vegetables, shrimp, squid and scallops. Don’t be fooled by the light hue of the soup. This soup has a lot of heat that doesn’t burn you on contact but rather emits slowly and lingers afterwards.

Tang Su Yuk 14.40: Sweet and sour fried pork is lightly crispy on the outside. Mildly battered and not drenched with sauce as you would typically seen in a Chinese-Canadian restaurant. The meat inside were not too dry either.

Hee Rae Dung Korean Chinese on North Road is a nice casual alternative to Korean BBQ. It tastes much better than Good Friends.
