Ohana means family, and family means sharing food together!
The name of this restaurant was also fitting for this occasion, as I was able to enjoy some Korean food with my brother while visiting him in College Station!
I ordered take-out and the food was ready in about 20 minutes. The Korean lady who owns the store had a briskness about her, but she still made sure to double check all the items in my order, which I appreciated.
The restaurant is located in Park Place Plaza, and while there was plenty of indoor seating, no outdoor seating was available.
I heard great things about their Korean style Chinese cuisine, so I ordered Jjajangmyeon (Black Bean Noodle) $12.99, Jjambbong (Seafood Spicy Noodle) $14.99, and Sautéed Blood Sausage $15.99.
The Jjambbong was definitely my favorite of the items. It came with plenty of mussels, shrimp, veggies (I found the broccoli to be an interesting touch but eh, can’t complain because I need to eat more greens!). The broth definitely had a kick to it, which I enjoyed, and the noodles soaked up the flavor very well. I would say this was pretty authentic.
The Jjajangmyeon was also very tasty, with lots of onions and pork in the black bean sauce. It came topped with half of a boiled egg. The black bean sauce was on the sweeter side, but it was still quite delicious.
I was excited for the Sautéed Blood Sausage because this is not a dish you can find commonly at a lot of smaller Korean restaurants in the U.S. It had a lot of veggies in it, as well as sweet potato noodles and rice cake filled with cheese!
While the sauce was spicy and good, the texture of the blood sausage seemed less chewy than I would have liked. This is most likely because they use a frozen blood sausage instead of fresh one, but it is understandable because blood sausage is not easy to make, let alone find in the U.S. Given all of that, I enjoyed this dish a lot and the portion was large as well, even though I got the smaller size. This dish also came with a side of rice.
All of the dishes came with banchan, or side dishes, consisting of pickled radish, kimchi, potatoes in soy sauce, pickled onions and cucumber. All of the side dishes were tasty and the portion was also large, so I had left overs to eat with my next meal.
Overall, I enjoyed the meal and my craving for Korean food was satisfied! Just a tip that they also close from 2-5pm between lunch and dinner.
