Kosoo Korean in Vancouver's West End. This trendy restaurant opened last April is barely a year old. It serves a mix of modern Korean, Japanese and French fusion style dish. Their Owner / Chef Han comes with a repertoire from Fairmont Chateau Laurier in Ottawa, Le cordon Bleu Signatures, and Provence Marinaside. If you are wondering where Kosoo is; it is located on 832 Cardero Street nearby Robson Public Market. Kosoo draws from tradition fermented sauces such as Gochujang (chili paste) and Denjang (soybean paste, similar to Miso) with modern execution.
Tonight's tasting includes an array of dishes off the menu which we are hosting a contest for a Valentine's Day Dinner for Two -- details below.
Mushroom Salad: Sauteed mushrooms with balsamic reduction, feta cheese crumbles over a bed of fresh greens. It's a nice warm option to the usual cold appetizers.
세가지 종류의 버섯과 갈릭 버터, 발사믹 소스, 페타치즈, 토마토
Beef Tartare 15: Beef tenderloin with Korean pear, sweet soy and homemade spicy sauce, tako wasa and quail egg. The beef is tender and very flavorful. Tako Wasa gives it a nice kick in brightness.
고수의 육회소스로 버무린 소안심살, 배, 타코 와사비, 메추리알
Kosoo Taco 6: 2 pieces of beef taco with spicy sauce, white onion and French tortilla. We liked the burst of residual heat. Imagine if there was a hard shell taco version in the future?
우삼겹쌈 (소고기, 양상추, 양파, 크레이프)
Tuna Tartare 15: Tuna, avocado, smoked tomato, crispy green onion with sesame mustard sauce and balsamic reduction.
훈제 토마토, 튀긴 파, 아보카도, 깨 겨자 소스로 버무린 참치, 발소믹 소스
生鮪魚拌芝麻芥末醬, 酪梨和煙燻番茄, 香酥青蔥少許義大利黑醋
Matcha Creme Brulee: A strong green tea flauvor cream brulee. I liked that the sweetness is subdued.
