This Korean restaurant is by far the best place to head to for gamjatang, aka pork bone soup. It is a spicy soup made with pork spine, vegetables, green onions, hot peppers and ground wild sesame seeds. I love eating this in the winter time. For some reason I find this soothing and comforting. Just like how others feel when they are eating a bowl of chicken noodle soup. But for me I prefer the pork bone soup.
At the Owl, there are only 8-10 items on the menu but their main specialty is the pork bone soup. They don't even need to serve other items because it really is that good. Also the spot I go to, located close to Yonge and Finch, it's opened 24 hours a day. I went once on a weeknight at two in the morning because I was craving for it and I was astonished to see that the place was still bustling with people at that time of night. Thought I was the only crazy person that would be there at two in the morning.
Another added bonus is this bowl of yummy soup cost only $6. It's so filling and delicious you just can't go wrong. Unlike a happy meal at MacDonalds, it is more expensive and an hour later you will be hungry again.
If you never tried gamjatang before then head to the Owl of Minerva. I got my cousin to try it and she loves it. It's funny when I first told her to try it she asked me if it tasted like pho lol. Well she definitely does not think that now hehe.
TOTAL BILL $15...EAT HERE NEXT!!!
