October 14, 2017:  Last night, Daphne and I had a dinner after her church service.  We went to The Owl of Minerva at Steeles and Silver Star in Scarborough.  This was the third Owl Korean restaurant I’ve been to!

It was very bright, clean, and spacious inside this branch.  If I’m not mistaken, this unit used to be a Japanese restaurant very early in the 2000s (don’t I sound old hahaha).

I ordered the Jap Chae.  It’s a dish of stir-fried glass noodles with vegetables.  Daphne ordered the Pork Bone Soup (I remember having that recently at the First Markham Place location and loved it).

We were served a variety of banchan.  The kimchi was pretty good; not too spicy.  It came with a pair of scissors so that you could cut it up yourself.  I liked the red pepper and cucumber salad; it was vinegary.  The bean sprouts were also good.  The pickled radishes were standard.

The JapChae was a good portion.  The glass noodles were very tasty and firm!  I don’t know if it’s because I’ve been eating very clean lately but the seasoning seemed a tad strong and a little salty for me.  Either way, it was a good dish.

The service was fast and friendly.  There were lots of people here too on a Saturday night!  The place was packed with customers after our arrival.
