Short rib rice – Revel

Short rib rice - Revel
Egg yolk, sambal daikon, mustard green. $15

Mmm, this was really tasty! The short ribs were tender and had a great delicious charred crust. I loved that they used coarse sea salt on the egg yolk and mustard greens for added texture and flavor, and the sambal daikon was yummy.

SO good! This was definitely another delicious and comforting dish from Revel. The seaweed noodles were delicious and the large chunks of dungeness crab were nice treats to find in every few spoonfuls. And the spicy red curry sauce brought everything together. Noms!

Pork dumpling – Revel

Pork dumpling - Revel
Green curry, coconut, basil. $9
Revel, Seattle WA

Mmm, another tasty dish from Revel. I loved the addition of green curry in the dumpling, you don’t see that very often. And the toasted coconut shavings made for a fun topping. We have SO many dumplings in San Francisco and they all start tasting similar especially if you’re at a dumpling restaurant, so I loved that these dumplings were out of the ordinary and delicious!

Pork belly pancake – Revel

Pork belly pancake - Revel
Kimchi, bean sprouts. $10
Revel, Seattle WA

This restaurant specializing in Korean comfort food is awesome! All the food tastes great and although I’m not Korean, I can imagine that this is how comfort food would taste like there. The one downside that I noticed was that the service was REALLY slow with long, awkward pauses during service. I’m sure it’s because the kitchen in continually slammed (this place is popular) so the food trickles out. This savory pork belly pancake was delicious, and the sauces at the table were fun to mix and match!
