korean food in jasper
It is safe to say that my husband loves Korean food.
Not as much as he loves me, but almost.
I cannot tell you how proud he was when he made his own kimchi last spring.
This winter, he had to go to the farmers' market by himself. He moaned and complained, but what did he come home with? That's right: a big jar of kimchi from the Korean stall. Which he proceeded to dip into every night for the next two weeks.
I never imagined I would be able to feed Scott's kimchi addiction in Jasper, but sure enough, my friend Isabelle suggested Kimchi House.
We were there for Scott's birthday and had a whole weekend in the quiet town, big mountains watching over us.
On the Friday night, we walked down quiet, snowy streets into downtown Jasper.
We found the restaurant and Scott ordered a warm little tumbler of sake.
The server brought us some kind of unusual pickled salad to begin. We don't remember what it was – only that we'd like to eat it again soon. Then we tucked into our japchae – tender-but-stretchy sweet potato noodles with slivers of beef and vegetables – and a soup that was spicy and full of beef.
Every bit of food seemed exactly right, and just the meal to eat on a cold winter's night.
Korean food in Jasper: highly recommended.
