School Food's concept was to have a cleaner version of Korean street food made with high quality ingredients. They've also created some versions of traditional Korean food with a twist such as carbonara dukkboki or dwenjang jiggae ramen which make for interesting and delicious dishes you can't get anywhere else!

  모둠마리    21,000원     멸치/볶음김치/참치/오징어먹물/날치알/스팸/고추멸치/불고기/베이컨마늘. ( small anchovies, stir-fried kimchi, tuna, squid, fish roe, spam, jalepenos, bulgogi beef and bacon garlic)  A assortment of School Food's well known mari's (rolls). They aren't called kimbap here because the chefs roll the rice and ingredients together lightly rather than tightly pressing down in order to create a more light and airy roll than traditional kimbap. This allows for the flavour of these unique rolls to separate and be tasted in your mouth.

  떡순이모둠  - DukSooNi Modem  A combination of spicy rice-cakes (dukbokki),dumpling (mandoo), blood sausage and hard boiled eggs. I find that this version of dukbokki is a bit too spicy even for me...so I prefer other versions of dukbokki better.

 순대 - side order of sundae  aka blood sausage, but it's really not a sausage. It's glass noodles filled in a sausage casing which is then filled with blood? I used to not eat this, but now I enjoy it - especially dipped in dukbokki sauces!

  쏘이까르보나라떡볶이  - Soy Sauce Carbonara Dukbokki  This dish also comes out as a version with just carbonara - no soy sauce, but I like this version better because it's more flavourful.

  매운까르보나라떡볶이  - MehOon Carbonara Dukkboki  My favourite of all the versions of Dukbokki. It's a combination of creamy carbonara and spicy dukbokki. The spice level and creamy combination make for a perfect duo!

  매운까르보나라떡볶이  - MehOon Carbonara Dukkboki  I like to add Jool Myun, a thicker chewy noodle in here to scoop up the sauce. All of the mari (rolls) are great to dip in these dukbokki sauces as well!

  돈까스커리라면 (동절기)  - Donkatsu Curry Ramen  It's exactly what the title says..and it's delicious! The curry is just thick enough and the ramen noodles picked up the sauce nicely along with the fried pork pieces. Great combo.

  루비오렌지에이드  - Ruby Orange Ade  I don't usually order beverages when I eat meals, but my friend ordered this drink. If you like Ades, this was good with fresh bits of real orange pulp in it.
