Gung The Palace, Sector 29, Gurgaon
This little Korean place has been around for quite some time. Typical Korean interior setting, low seating dining, staff dressed in traditional Korean attire gives a very inviting feel to the place. Gung The Palace, though miles away from Korea but gives you a taste right from that land. One does not need to wave the server as there is a bell on each table. Pretty interesting, right? With an array of side dishes that include Egg Roll, Pickled Veggies, Mashed Potato and the very Korean staple, a personal favourite, Kimchi, the place is known to roll out excellent set menus for lunch.
Choose from your choice of one small plate and a big plate (from an option of four choices), and pair these with as much as you please little treat portions sides makes for a bellyful meal. While eating, Koreans do not give the comforting Bibimbap a miss. From the mains, the Korean style Scallion Pancakes, along with the Prime Tenderloin Ribs does much justice to the palate. To raise the temptation, the starters, soup and dessert are all free and a part of your meal!
