You can say it's a 'hidden gem, in Mississauga, in a plaza on Dundas St, by Dixie Rd.
We usually go there for their famous Black Bean Noodles but this time around, we opted for something new: Marinated Bulgogi (Beef) Hotpot for 2, which comes with the full stew cooked at your table with two rice bowls.
The broth was so flavourful! In addition to the bulgogi, the obvious ingredient, there were glass noodles, bok choy, mushrooms, red peppers, sliced rice cakes and zucchini. After it's been cooking for a while, we asked for extra broth.
We also got spicy calamari. There's pieces of steamed calamari, sliced onion, green onion, carrots, and zucchini in a spicy sauce, served on a sizzling hot plate. DELICIOUS!
Now, for the dishes we go at OTHER visits to Song Cook's.
No, we cannot eat ALL this at one visit :)
The above is the individual portion for Mugunji Pork Ribs, which is aged Kimchi stew with pork ribs. This is also cooked at your table with mushrooms, green onions, sliced rice cakes and various veggies alongside the pork in the spicy stew. This is delicious in cold weather with some steamed rice.
You won't be able to stop eating!
Dishes above include (clockwise):
Kan Jajang (special black bean noodles). Instead of their regularblack bean sauce, the noodles come separate with their fresh black beach sauce, which is cooked again with onion and zucchini (this is a good option for vegetarians as regular BB noodles have meat in it)
Marinated Steamed Beef Ribs: Beef short ribs with potato and carrot in a delicious sauce. This is a perfect side dish to any entree you order.
Seafood Black Bean Noodles: Same as a regular BB, but with seafood - this is a share size.
BB noodles with Sweet & Sour Pork Combo: Perfect for those days where you want a little of everything. Half portion of regular BB noodles with half portion of tang-soo-yuk (deepfried pork strips in sweet & sour sauce)
