My friends and I ate at Owl of Minerva located at First Markham Place afew weeks ago. The restaurant itself reminds me of Huh Ga Ne but has none of its fanciness and it could be as small as or even smaller than the Owl of Minerva located in North York that’s open 24 hours. There aren’t any traditional tables and seats at First Markham Place, at least out front. The menu at First Markham Place differs from the menu at Uptown Waterloo or North York. It focuses on kam ja tang (pork bone soup). There’s a variety of pork bone soup on the menu at First Markham Place. Three of my friends and I had some variation of pork bone soup while another friend had jap chae. My friend likes the jap chae at Owl.
One friend just got the original/regular pork bone soup.
Another friend got pork bone soup with rice cakes while another friend had the pork bone soup with dumplings. They both enjoyed it.
I had the pork bone soup with seafood ($10 with tax). The seafood is miniscule. There were mini-mussel, mini shrimp and mini oyster. It also has rice cakes. The kam ja tang itself is comparable to the ones I had at other locations.
I still like Owl of Minerva for their pork bone soup.
