Local Guide

Great Korean restaurant, they have 2 locations, one along Robson St(2nd branch). The other on Cardero off Robson tucked away in the corner. I have been to both, food quality is consistent in both restaurants. However I liked the one on Cardero for the ambiance & decor. If you go there, you will see what I meant.

The restaurant is known for its authentic Korean cuisine, which is prepared with the freshest ingredients and cooked to perfection. The dishes are bursting with flavor and have a unique blend of spices. From traditional Korean BBQ to savory stews and soups, there is something for everyone on the menu.

Whenever we find ourselves in Downtown Vancouver, our compass invariably points to Kosoo. This time, we went to their 1st branch on Cardero Street. The highlight would be their beef brisket Budae Jjigae, also known as Army Stew. It’s a dish that graces the screens of K-dramas, and Kosoo’s version doesn’t disappoint.
