I love Arisu. It is definitely my favourite Korean restaurant. The first time we came here it was for YJ’s birthday, and they gave us a very beautiful complimentary sushi boat. Since then I have revisited many times. Their gam ja tang is my staple. C said it’s even better than any gam ja tang she tried in Toronto. The banchan here deserves special mention as well. They are always extremely well executed and the kitchen doesn’t give you the same banchan over and over again. This is comfort food at its best (funny how I describe this as comfort food because I never had non-Chinese food prior to coming to Canada). Their Japanese food isn’t too bad (although not the best offered in Kingston). It is also nice to note that the rice they use is the real Korean rice, not any crappy rice variety sold in supermarkets here in North America.

감자탕 Gamja Tang
Pork bone soup with potatoes and vegetables, rice
Pork is very nicely seasoned and fresh (doesn’t have a gamey taste to it). There is a LOT of meat attached. I’m always left with just a few bones after I finish it.
