So my rate of posting has dropped significantly. At this point, I’ve probably eaten at about half the restaurants downtown and a quarter of those in the Whitehorse area. Between that and spending a week in BC and other camping-like travels, I just haven’t been trying as many restaurants. Don’t fear, I’ll keep posting, I just couldn’t keep up with those near daily numbers!
I have no idea where I heard of The Hue Oasis at the Skky Hotel, but have been wanting to try it for weeks. (Even though I think it has only been open for weeks!) I love me a hot stone Bi Bim Bap.
And that’s exactly what I ordered. While it lacked the sesame oil bean sprouts that I love, I don’t blame them. Bean sprouts are one ingredient that I can rarely find in decent shape up here. Twice I’ve been to Pho Five Star and they’ve been out.
What I like about the hot stone Bi Bim Bap is the raw egg that gets mixed in and cooked by the hot stone bowl. It turns into a super fresh fried rice. And the rice that gets crunchy cooked to the bowl is great too.
I knew it was going to be relatively authentic when the server brought me metal chopsticks. They are a must in any Korean restaurant I’ve ever visited.
Along with my main, I got a bowl of miso-style soup and a little salad. Service was efficient and friendly, the space is nicer than your standard hotel restaurant and most importantly, I really enjoyed my meal.
It’d be a great place to stop for a meal before catching a flight – or an option after one.
I look forward to going back and trying their Jap Chae and Seafood pancake.
Likelihood of return visit: Very likely.
