This past Sunday my friends and I went to Made in China for lunch. Despite the restaurant name, they also serve ramen, hot pot and Korean food. The Chinese food they serve is mostly from Southern China. The decor at the place is quite modern and the lighting is fairly bright. The service is quite prompt especially since we were a group of nearly 16 people.
Hainanese Chicken Rice that I got on Apr. 27, 2014
My friend got their Hainanese Chicken Rice and it’s the most authentic looking Hainanese Chicken Rice I’ve seen so far in Toronto. It actually has the black sauce, hot sauce and ginger sauce. The rice also looks like it’s been cooked in the chicken fat to give it flavour.
I ordered the beef sizzling platter ($6.99). The beef sizzling platter includes kimchi, daikon, spicy fried tofu, a bowl of rice and a choice of iced prune juice or pop. The beef sizzling platter is beef with onions, leeks, carrots with some sesame seeds sprinkled on top and served on a sizzling hot plate. It’s very filling.
If you and your friends can’t decide what to eat then this is the restaurant for you with its variety of cuisine options!

Another high school friend and I went to eat at Jeon Ju Hyang on the first Friday of August. Another friend had recommended this restaurant to me.
a decent selection of kimchi
Jeon Ju Hyang has a good selection of kimchi compared to other Korean restaurants however it doesn’t have the large variety available at Oh Geul Boh Geul. I equally liked all of their kimchi dishes although my friend preferred the non-spicy kimchi dishes.
My friend and I both ordered the Pork Galbi ($10.99). It comes with a bowl of rice and miso soup. Pork galbi is marinated pork ribs. The pork galbi is on a sizzling hot plate. It was quite savoury. I really enjoyed it.
Jan Chi Guksu
My friend also had the Jan Chi Guksu ($7.99). Jan Chi Guksu is Korean noodles with chicken soup, beef, zucchini, egg, seaweed and carrot. My friend absolutely loved it. She said that it tasted very delicious.
Overall, if you’re in Scarborough and wanting to eat Korean cuisine then I recommend this restaurant.
