    This restaurant doesn't even know what the word "gluten" means. They did not know that soy sauce contains wheat until I explained this to them. I got glutened very bad from this place, and should have walked out the door after discovering that this is NOT a gluten-free friendly establishment in the slightest. I ate here because it showed up in my Find Me Gluten Free app for restaurants located in the area of the city I was visiting, and the other review implied the Bibimbap was gluten free if you didn't add the additional sauce. However, they used soy sauce in the Bimbimbap on the meat. They were accommodating enough to replace my order with a veggie Bimbimbap, but there was clearly hidden sources of sauce on the tofu as well, and they take no measures to separate their preparation of gluten-containing and non-gluten-containing food. The food was delicious, but if you're a sensitive Celiac, do not eat at this place unless you're willing to make the sacrifice for a taste of authentic Korean food.

    After walking about 2 miles from the Bart to Japan Town my friend and I were pretty famished so I was SO HAPPY to stumble upon Korean House Restaurant right across the street from J Town. I was a happy girl for sure :). Korean House Restaurant is such a homey place, great for an authentic Korean meal. We were welcomed in Korean and I just wished I knew a bit more Korean to correspond back. The ban chan that they served was delicious! I had a few bites, but Celiacs should be aware that most Korean food contains wheat, at least what they serve in restaurants. The hot pepper paste (Gochujang) does contain wheat from the soy sauce and the malt or barley powder that they use. I ordered the Dolsot Bibimbap which comes served in a stone clay pot and it was piping hot! As long as you don’t add the Gochujang sauce the dish is naturally gluten free. The Bibimbap was so delicious the crusty rice that forms at the bottom of the clay pot gets super crispy and flavorful as you mix all the meats and veggies together with the raw egg! I was so excited to dig in that I forgot to take a picture when it was first brought to the table, hence, the crappy pictureL.
