Maru Korean Bistro - Korean food for lunch? Heck Yes

Location: 125 E 2nd Street, North Vancouver, BC

Meal:  Kakuni Dol-sot - Hot stone bowl rice with 12 hour sous vide pork belly and a bunch of other stuff in it.

Atmosphere: This restaurant is massive, used to be Cheers. 

Service: 1 server but very attentive with multiple refills of tea. 

Bottom line: Met up with a friend for lunch and he suggested that we eat here. I've bookmarked this place in the past to try but never had the opportunity. As a background, I love Korean food and have had a lot of it in my past, but I've never had pork belly like this before. 

This was the perfect sized lunch, the hot stone bowl cooked my rice into a crispy finish. Everything was mixed up together to create a mess of a bowl but it was pretty damn good. As you can see, they have a ton of lunch specials and it didn't take long for our food to come. I would say this is a perfect place for lunch if you only have an hour. 

Out the door price: Under $13 with tip

Repeat: Yes, must try their short ribs and other menu items. They also have happy hour!

Final Rating:   4/5
