I haven't had too much Korean food, I'll be honest, except for once in Birmingham at Topokki, and that set the benchmark quite high. Oh and another time at this dodgy underground place somewhere in South Kensington in London. And that made me ill. So I wasn't sure which way my meal with my ex-boss would go. Also, it didn't help that she'd taken us to the dodgy one last time around! I googled Tohbang feeling quite uncertain, but the menu looked very promising, so that made me feel better.

A new city means a new food scene to explore! Topokki Birmingham was my first venture into Korean cuisine. Why has it taken me so long? Fifteen years ago, a very vegetarian uncle went to Korea on a business trip and came back with stories of a dazed monkey, monkey brain and a straw. Scarred me for a good decade and more. Thankfully I forgot. Topokki was a treat.
