[Restaurant Review] Midam Richmond

Midam Richmond Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Address: 4651 Garden City Rd,Richmond, Richmond, BC V6X 4A9

We found Midam by accident… The indecisive Molangs were driving down Alexandra Rd in Richmond. As we reached the end of the road, we took a wrong turn into a car mechanic shop/car wash place. That was when we spotted Midam by the corner. We couldn’t tell what kind of restaurant it was until we searched online. Google said “Korean restaurant”. Good enough for us!

The owner of Midam must really love basketball because the inside of the restaurant was plastered with NBA posters – Kobe, MJ, Bird & Magic. There was even a 1:1 poster of Yao Ming that lets  you measure your height against him. I think we are about 66.67% Yao Ming 😀

I would describe Midam’s menu as modernized Korean food, and this was reflected in their presentation and execution.

They gave us two menus. One was the laminated sheet as shown above, and another was a booklet. The confusing thing was that the two menus had overlapping items, and items that were missing from each other. After the brief confusion, we went ahead and ordered two dishes:

Bulgogi Stone Pot Bibimbap -$15

This was a rice bowl with marinated beef, fried egg, and sliced veggies. The stone pot kept everything hot for the entire meal! We drizzled some hot sauce in it, and it was very satisfying to eat.

Spicy Chicken + Green Onion + Rice Cakes – $11

We noticed a distinct lack of chopped green onions, so we asked for more. They gave us probably three tablespoons extra 😀 😛

Chicken (thigh) was very tender, and the sauce had a good balance of heat and acidity. As for the rice cakes, they were chewy but not rubbery. We appreciated the 1:1 ratio of meat to rice cake 🙂

Side Dishes -Free

Tonight we had sweetened potatoes, spicy bean sprouts, and imitation crab salad. I know these were free, but we were disappointed about the portion size and lack of kimchi 😦

Molang Scores & Verdict

Food: 4/5

Value: 3.5/5

Service: 4/5

Ambiance: 4/5

Total: 15.5/20

When we saw the storefront of Midam, we didn’t expect much; however, their food turned out to be pretty good. Perhaps next time we will try their assortment of Korean beverages and desserts (shaved ice!).
