The kimchi here is the best kimchi in town. Bar none, the best of any place that I have been to in Houston. I am not the only one who has said it about their kimchi. It's the best. Aside from the best kimchi, BEST KIMCHI, in town they have a great selection of Korean noodles, hence the name of the place, and it literally is a house, no joke. It's like your eating in some Korean grandmother's house. There are a few rice dishes and soups. The usual fare at a Korean restaurant. But not much of any banchan. You get a small ceramic pot of kimchi and that is it, with that being said, there is great food to be had here.
I always go for the bulgogi dolsot bibimbap (불고기돌솥 비빔밥). They did use to have the regular bibimbap with vegetables on top of the rice but they took it off the menu. The yukgaejang 육개장 is awesome as well. It is fiery red and super spicy, I love the broth, it is very savory and delicious and there are tons of vegetables and tender beef strips.
The noodles here are the knife cut noodles, kalguksu (칼국수) , I think is how you spell it and it's very delicious. Tender but chewy, toothsome noodles in various soups. I had the jjamppong (짬뽕). There is kimchi kalguksu. Mandu Kalguksu. And there are cold noodles too like bibimguksu (비빔국수) and mulnaengmyeon (물냉면) . There is also japchae (잡채).
Great food all around. I haven't had a bad dish here yet. So if you happen to be in the Spring Branch area in Houston definitely stop by Korean Noodle House, you won't be disappointed.
