191. The Palace Korean Restaurant

Kim Bap @$6

I had a quick lunch at The Palace this afternoon as I was supposed to attend to some matters in that area. Well, it isn't really a restaurant. The name of it made it sound like it's really something like Dae Jeung Geum. Don't hold your hopes too high, especially at lunch hours, even a palace will lose its shine. It is more like an eatery or maybe a Korean Express.
A look at the menu, it's either ra-myon, kim bap or bibimbap. The rice sets were more or less the same. There were about 20 choices to choose from. Most of the people had ra-myon. It wasn't to my liking. I personally felt it isn't worth to pay $6 to have a bowl of Korean instant noodles. No doubt, they added extra ingredients to the noodles to make it a not so pathetic bowl of noodles, it still didn't trigger my taste buds. I think instant noodles are of minimal nutrition and it seemed pretty oily to me.
I preferred lunch to be light and if possible, not too oily. A heavy lunch will result in lethargic work attitude or even make one fall asleep. Even though, I took a half day off and didn't need o return to work, I chose kim bap over ra-myon. No oil and healthy. It was quite nicely wrapped. They sprinkled sesame seeds over the kim bap and my kim bap smelt nice.
