Sherman's Food Adventures: Korean food in Burquitlam

For some reason or another, I haven’t been on any North Road Korean food adventures lately.Even though it seems like I have eaten at nearly all of the restaurants, there are still a few left. This week, I tried Wang Ga Ma with my friend Big D. 
We started off with a large plate ofKimchi, which tasted a bit strange.It wasn't bad, but it was on the sweeter side with lots of white onion.There was a nice texture and colour and the turnip was especially crunchy. 
Next we tried a small portion ofStewed Pork Bellyaccompanied by blanched Napa cabbage and more kimchi turnip.As with Korean BBQ, the trick is the take some cabbage, pork and kimchi, and then add the bean paste, pepper and fermented shrimp. This was good as the pork was moist, and tender where the fat was gelatinous. The fermented shrimp added a nice seafood and salty to the pork belly. 
Lastly, we ordered theBeef Rib Soup,which was well seasoned and had a lot of short rib and noodles. I liked the meaty taste and the big pieces of meat were soft and didn't require much effort to eat.For the price, I felt that there was good value.We didn't have a shortage of food and we only had 2 dishes! The service was a bit spotty, but I would consider coming back.
