Damso Modern Korean – Next Korean Neighborhood Gem

I dub this the next neighborhood gem in the West End. Their restaurant front is inconspicuous and can be easily overlooked. Their menu is very varied, from traditional Bibimbop to 12 hour braised beef tongue and chicken gizzards. Everything looked delicious. It is a smaller restaurant. We went there around 8PM on a Tuesday and, about ¼ of the restaurant was filled.

Now the food..

We started off with the 12 hour braised beef tongue –$ 7.85, garnished with radishes and green onions. This was out of this world. It is the best beef tongue I’ve had in Vancouver so far.

Seafood Waffle, it was good although drenched in soy sauce which made it very salty.

Chicken Gizzard was good but, the portion size was too small.

Hot Stone Beef Bulgogi Bibimbop, assorted veggies and egg came with 3 side dishes and a soup – $11.95. It also came with a choice of white or multigrain rice, we choose the multigrain. It was very flavorful and there were a few pieces of crispy rice.

Side dishes, seaweed dressed in sesame, potatoes and I believe crab cakes, don’t quote me on the last.

Another of the popular dishes dbok kalbee $12.95– eight beef meat balls. It comes with a side of rice, and 3 small side dishes, mentioned above. We really enjoyed this, no wonder it is a popular item. The meat was so juicy. If I really want to be a superhero, I will try to re-create the recipe, so I can enjoy it every day.

Overall, it is now one of my favourite Korean restaurants downtown. The value and the quality of the food was superb. I am persuaded.
