For those of you who don’t know, I am a HUGE Yelp addict. Reading reviews for all sorts of places, looking at pictures of food, and searching for hidden gems is one of my hobbies. I currently have 920 bookmarks.. yes, I might have a slight problem LOL. Every few months, I go through all of them to delete ones that don’t interest me anymore, but I end up finding other places so they keep adding up more and more. As much as I love to read other people’s reviews though, I rarely ever write one on the site myself. Today, I looked at my drafts for the first time in a while and found this one that I had basically completed but never uploaded:
The first time I ever tried beef tongue was here at Gochi. This braised beef tongue was served with mashed potato butter gravy. Fast forward a little over two years to this day, and their beef tongue is still the only one I have actually enjoyed because it tasted like regular meat (with none of the chewiness that comes with tongue).
The braised pork belly was tender and the broth was deeeeelicious.
These vermicelli noodles with spicy cod roe and shiso leaves were my favorite dish of the night.
The pizza had spicy korean miso, bbq beef, and kimchi, but it was my least favorite because it just tasted like a cheese pizza. I mean, I LOVE cheese, but I could get a cheese pizza anywhere else, ya know?
I tried another one of their pizzas earlier this summer, and this one had spicy cod roe, snow crabs, mushrooms, and bacon. Unfortunately, I was disappointed yet again because although the cod roe and snow crab were visually present in the pizza, the cheese and bacon were all I tasted. The flavor of the spicy cod roe was very faint.
If you want Asian fusion food and are willing to splurge, go with a group to Gochi so that you can try a lot of their dishes! I recommend their carpaccios as well. Just don’t waste money on their pizza 🙂
