Korean cuisine also finds space in the China Town neighborhood, alas, without success. This is precisely the case of My Kimchi, a Korean restaurant that has been open for a few years now, just a few steps away from Paolo Sarpi. I was very excited to try this place when I discovered its existence, but unfortunately my expectations were substantially disregarded by the quality of the cuisine.
But let's proceed in order. First of all, the restaurant itself is essential and without frills. No problem on my part, except that the staff is equally "colorless". The waiters are not at all hospitable but in fact it almost seems that the customer is bothering him.
I take a look at the menu and I notice that it is quite varied, but perhaps too much since among the various dishes spring rolls and Japanese shabu-shabu also appear (a really bad sign, which is strange because in reality I never have had clearly negative opinions on this restaurant).
My Kimchi's proposals include soups, numerous rice or fish dishes. But the main preparation here is the barbecue. There are also several optional menus for lunch and numerous Italian wines to drink, as well as soju and Korean beers.
So I decide to try different preparations such as jajangmyeon (noodles seasoned with a dark soy bean sauce), beef bulgogi, pork belly sautéed with kimchi and tteokbokki.
Honestly, the content, like the presentation, leaves a lot to be desired. Taste is really nothing.
The dishes themselves are not expensive and are also quite abundant, but this is not enough to be considered a restaurant where I can say I have been well or where I would return to give a second chance.
