Hello everyone, David and Kelly again! We’re here this week with some tasty thoughts on another RushOrder restaurant — this time, Cafe Nandarang, one of Koreatown’s oldest cafés. At this old school favorite, you’ll find an amazing array of traditional dishes, reinvented with a blend of multicultural flavors. So tag along to watch us and our taste buds doing our thing!
Here are some more thoughts on the dishes we ordered. Hopefully, this will give you an idea of what to expect so that you can try for yourselves!
“The dish is like a Korean pasta with alfredo. The creamy sauce toned down the spice, but still left a nice kimchi flavor with tasty bits of kimchi running throughout. It was balanced and decadent, with all of the components complementing each other really well. I can see why it’s one of their most popular dishes!” –David
“I‘ve never eaten or even heard of anything like ‘omurice’ before, but I loved it. The omelette was huge, bursting with rice, ham, and veggies. It was sweet and tangy from the garnish of ketchup on top, creamy from the sauce it was covered with, and also savory from the ham-filled fried rice. There was a lot going on in this dish, but it all worked well together!” –Kelly
While we loved the dishes we chose, Cafe Nandarang offers a wide-ranging menu of many other traditional and Korean-American fusion options, including their Bulgogi Tacos and Galbi Sliders.
The only thing that was missing from this delicious lunch was one of their unique drink and dessert options. Nandarang offers gourmet sodas and creamy shakes, and you can order any one of them via RushOrder. So if you’re looking to try something new (or give another go at something you’ve had before), Cafe Nandarang is highly recommended!
