So Saturday I had this craving for sushi which I wanted to quench the next day, unfortunately the sushi place that's nearby is closed on sundays. I took it upon myself to find something else that was nearby when my memories took me to the Korean BBQ place in Amsterdam (Miss Korea) and reminded me of the amazing bibimbap that I had. As my craving hopped from one place to the next I asked my boyfriend if he'd be up for sushi since we have not had any for a while. As he said yes I started my search for something that would satisfy. Luckily enough I found a place called Sushi Yama. I had seen the place before but we had never been there. As I looked through the online menu I was ecstatic to see that they didn't just serve sushi.. they had bibimbap.
Upon arrival I was excited, the place looked very modern and very clean.
Three women were stood behind the counter as another couple ordered their food.
We looked through the menu again as my boyfriend decided he was going with the Grilled Chicken Poké Bowl and I stuck to my Yakiniku (grilled meat) Bibimbap plan, with a side order of Chuka Ika Sansai (squid salad).
As we moved to the counter we were greeted warmly by one of the employeed, she took our order and we were told we could have some free miso soup.
We sat down and our food came out maybe 5 minutes later.
The bibimbap I'm used to is usually scalding hot and fragrant so I have to say I was a little disappointed when there was neither scent nor heat. As I started mixing my food together I tasted some of the Chuka Ika Sansai, which tasted great. The Bibimbap was okay, despite the rice being lukewarm and the kimchi being a little bland for my taste.
Overall it was an okay experience and I am likely to go back, mostly because it is difficult to find this kind of food over here and I would like to check out some more things on their menu. Maybe next time I will actually go for some sushi.
Make sure you bookmark the blog somewhere since we will be in Amsterdam soon and I will vlog/blog things! (maybe not as I am there, but definitely when I am back!)
