We had never tried Korean food before, so today’s lunch adventure was out to One Family Korean Restaurant on Hillsborough.  It’s a hidden little gem located in the back of a shopping center.  From the moment we walked in the door, the aromas from the kitchen tempted our tastebuds.  We started off with some fried dumplings.

We didn’t expect quite so many of them, but they were delicious.  The dipping sauce was savory, but not overly spicy.  The dumplings were crispy and had a pork and veggie filling.  For his entree, Loren tried the spicy pork lunch box.

There was a ton of food in this box.  He said the pork was spicy and tender and he really enjoyed all the different sides that came with it.  He even asked for more of the bean sprouts to take home with his leftovers.  And trust me, there were leftovers all around.  I got the sweet & sour shrimp which was also served with a bunch of sides.

The waitress said the side dishes change every day so you never know what you’re going to get.  I like the potato and apple salad the best.  There was also spinach & the bean sprouts that Loren loved, plus two other veggie dishes.  As for the sweet & sour shrimp, it was probably one of the best sweet & sour dishes I’ve ever eaten.  There were plenty of shrimp and they were perfectly cooked and nice and crispy.  The veggies included peppers, onions, mushrooms, cucumber pickles, and I think pears.  It was yummy and I had plenty for a second meal as well.  Total bill with a drink was $42 and we’ll definitely be back.
