Choga Korean Restaurant
Overland Park, Kansas' Choga Korean Restaurant is the oldest Korean Restaurant in metropolitan Kansas City.
The food at Choga has declined a little over the years. Perhaps because the prices have not changed in several years and they are cutting costs. The side dishes are less interesting and tasty than they once were. The meals still come with the chef's choice of 6 side dishes, but they used to included more types of kimchi, tiny anchovies or steamed egg.
Most entrees run from $10-18, but a few special items run over $30.
In the past, the servers at Choga brought the side dishes out right away. I liked that and wished that they still did. This time the side dishes came out with the entree. But the servers still notice if you eat all of one of the side dishes and ask if you want more.
With Chung's Rainbow Restaurant only a block away, it is hard to evaluate Choga without comparing the two restaurants. Choga has a better atmosphere and is open seven days a week. Chung's is a little less expensive and (in my opinion) has a little better food.
