Woodpecker Korean Food

This afternoon we had a late lunch/early dinner at an Asian food court. We decided to try out the cuisine from Woodpecker Korean Food.

Woodpecker Korean Food, Toronto, Canada, Korean CuisineWe needed to eat close to where we had just attended a Gospel meeting, so I asked Siri where the nearest Korean food was. One of John’s daughters has been studying  the Korean language and culture and so I thought it would be a good choice.

After a short drive and then a short wait in the car until the heavy rain stopped we were able to see what our choices were.

What was really interesting is that the menu board was in Chinese and English with only the name of the restaurant in Korean.

Korean Food, Noodle Dish, John’s wife had a dish of noodles, I don’t remember the Korean name for them, but they had a black sauce with pieces of meats and vegetables.

John had a plate of spicy chicken. I had a similar dish to this in Korea and it is very good. I had a taste of the chicken and it was a little bit spicy, but not overpowering.

Pork Cutlet, Korean Food, Woodpecker Korean, Markham, Toronto, Canada

The boys and I all had the Pork Cutlet. This is very similar to ton katsu that you get in Japan, but the sauce has a different taste. The cutlet is usually thinner in Korean cuisine and is also cut into larger pieces.

I did enjoy the cutlet, the sauce had a very nice taste and the noodles were really good.

Beef Bone Noodles, Korean Food, Woodpecker Korean FoodJohn’s daughter who is studying Korean had a nice bowl of Beef Bone Noodles. She said that they were very good. They really look delicious in this picture and if I had to go back and choose again I think that this would be my choice.

Kimchi, Korean Cuisine, WoodpeckerThe noodle dishes also came with kimchi, while our cutlets came with a miso soup.

For Korean fast food this was a good choice. The food was really good and they were nice large portions for the price. We enjoyed our time together as we took our time eating since we needed to wait until it was time to pick up John’s younger daughter who was spending time with some friends nearby.

Which of these dishes would you choose?
