Featured image: Cheese Chicken Galbi @ Alirang I am extremely happy that the most popular Korean restaurant in Ottawa, Alirang, now has a second location. In the past, I would often forgo its downtown restaurant because I did not want to wait for a table during their busy dinner hours. Now I can easy walk… Continue reading Alirang: Best Korean Food in Ottawa
