Togi Korean Restaurant

A week ago, the hubby and I were researching online individually for a place for today's lunch. And we shared this place with one another, without looking at one's screen. Cool eh? So we have to try out this place!

We forgot to place a reservation earlier on, and we tried to make one when they opened at 12 noon. We were told that they do not take reservations. A little worried that the place may be crowded with lunch crowd, but still we headed there excitedly.

Located in Chinatown, in the middle of Mosque Street, this cozy Togi Korean Restaurant serves authentic Korean cuisine, based on online raving reviews. We were feeling pretty lucky that there were still empty tables for us. The restaurant is not very crowded, but it is bustling with activities from the existing customers.

We were greeted by the staff and given the menu for ordering.

The menu: If only there were more pictures. I seldom eat Korean as I always think that Korean food is very spicy and would be too hot for me to handle. So pictures play a very important part when I can "see" what I am going to order.

After taking some time to decide on our order, we placed our orders and shortly after, our tables were set (with wet tissues, bowls and plates, depending on what we ordered), together with some side dishes.

Every table comes with these six side dishes which are refillable upon request. The lady boss even came to our table, smiling and asking if we need any top up for the side dishes. All the side dishes were delicious, making me anticipate whether our mains would be just as delicious. I love the bottom left and right side dishes the most. Not sure what's the bottom left side dish, could be potato with carrot marinated in some sweet sauce. The bottom right is mashed potato with crushed peanuts, love the soft and crunchy texture.

Kimchi Jeon (Small) - $6.00
Kimchi Pancake with seafood
We love pancakes (based on previous Korean dining experience, though not all were yummy-delicious, but it would not go that wrong). We had the small portion of the kimchi pancake with seafood, which is a 3 piece pancakes. This comes in large portion for $12.00. Taste delicious, but I am unable to really taste what are in the pancakes, maybe they chopped up everything too finely? Nevertheless, we liked this.

Soondubu Jjigae - $12.00
Spicy silken toufu soup with seafood
Although the soup looks like a one person portion, but it is just nice for the both of us. Very spicy and hot from the kitchen, the soup consists of toufu, two big prawns and quite a number of squid pieces. Maybe if there is a little more soup would be better. The bowl looks like most of the soup had evaporated and spilt over. Mid bowl, we had more ingredients than soup. Delicious but too spicy for us.

Kimchi Fried Rice - $12.50
Kimchi fried rice with Tuna/Pork
The hubby and I were shocked at the portion of the rice. It looks like a huge plate. Even the egg was a surprise as it's not in the description. The plating looks colourful and appetising. Upon future digging into the huge plate of fried rice, I came to the conclusion that although it looks alot, the rice portion is amplified with the generous amount of kimchi and pork slices. Delicious, but it was too spicy for us (again). And by this time, both of us were very full (not sure why). We did not managed to finish this plate of rice.

Guess we ordered too much? But we only ordered one rice, one soup and one pancake and we were ravenously hungry before we stepped into the restaurant. And yet we were unable to finish the fried rice, and we did not even ask for any refill for the side dishes. Maybe it's the spiciness? The hubby and I are not that good in handling spicy food.

The total bill came up to $38.00 for two person, including 2 mineral bottled waters ($1.00 each), 7% GST and 10% Service charge. The wet tissues were free.

We will definitely be back here again to try out the other dishes.

Kaohsiung : Fo Guang Shan 佛光山

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After a much complicated directions online on how to get to the Fo Guang Shan 佛光山, we decided to take the KRT to Zuoying Station and then take the bus, 哈佛快線. Exit the Zuoying KRT Station and wait at Bus Platform 2 for the 哈佛快線 to come. There is a time schedule for the bus to arrive. Each bus trip cost NTD70 per person. You can use the iPass to tap in and out for the journey.

Alternatively, based on online reviews, you can take bus 8010/8011 at 高雄客运. It is just opposite our hotel and behind 国光客运. However, it is not recommended by the staff there as it is a much longer time and distance, that's why she recommended us to take the 哈佛快線 at Zuoying.

Here's the bus. We waited quite some time as we were early.

Here's the bus schedule.

We have reached Fo Guang Shan 佛光山. A little overwhelmed by the map. It's a huge place. And since it's on a hill, there are alot of slopes and stairs. Just thinking about it make my knees go weak.…

Kaohsiung : Food and more food

Besides eating at Night Markets, we also went to some recommended places online and on TV. These places are not that near from the KRT and need some working out on feet.

BO 雪球餅乾咖啡館 BO Schneebälle Cafe 新光三越高雄左營店3F | Shin Kong Mitsukoshi (Zuoying) level 3

We had accidentally went past this cafe in Zuoying Shin Kong Mitsukoshi 星光三越. The hubby saw a TV show recommending this special biscuit ball where you need to hammer it to eat in smaller pieces. We tried it as it was quite fun. We had the chocolate flavoured one.

The huge wooden hammer in shop to break the biscuit ball into pieces.

I think we hammered too much... Haha the ball became overly small pieces. It's delicious.

You can buy as gifts. If I remember correctly, three balls into one container.

I am pretty regretful that I did not buy more to bring home. I like the taste of it a lot. And I am missing it so much. Ahh.. Delicious.

Kaohsiung : Cijin Island 旗津島

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After visiting The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and the Takao Railway Museum 打狗鐵道故事館 in the morning, our following itinerary was to head to the Cijin Island 旗津島. By the way, if we were able to travel around on bicycles, it would be much easier. So, do rent a bicycle to travel around if you are able to cycle. Especially for The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and on Cijin Island 旗津島.

About 10-15 minutes walk from the Orange line KRT station, Sizihwan Station 西子灣站 (O1), you will be able to reach the ferry terminal. Follow the signs (鼓山渡轮站) on the lamp posts to get to the ferry terminal.

 The ferry also ferries passengers travelling with bicycles and motorcycles. For us, without any cycles, it costs NTD15 per person per trip. You can pay in cash or iPass.

The ferry ride is only about 5 to 10 minutes. Cijin Island 旗津島 is just opposite, separated by the waters. The ferry terminal looks nicer on the island.

There's a temple on the island. Cihhou Godde…
