Many Korean restaurants in Taipei are run by Taiwanese or Korean-born Chinese, so it's relatively rare to find a Korean owned, operated and staffed restaurant. The newly-open Korean House, however, offers just that. Korean House serves common, family-style dishes like barbecued meats, sliced rice cakes, pan fried seafood, beef casserole with odeng and clea soup with dough flakes. Some of the popular dishes here include Fried Cuttlefish (NT$450), which is made with fresh cuttlefish and onions, carrots and Korean-style sauces--you can decide how spicy your dish will be. In order to maintain authenticity, many of their ingredients and sauces are imported from Korea. Also, the generous owner will periodically give away appetizers like kimchi to random tables, making the trip even more fun. --By Mandy Chao, translated by Ann Lee
