The writing's on the wall at Seoul Korean Restaurant. Literally. Near the entrance, there's a container of colorful Sharpies that customers use to scribble their reviews right on the paint. It's a bold move, but the exquisite quality of Seoul's food lets them get away with it. The food is so good, in fact, that the restaurant has set the bar for others in the community—in fact, The Coast marked 2011 as the start of the "golden age of Asian food" in Halifax, thanks, in part, to the opening of Seoul. Read on to learn about a few of this eatery's revolutionary recipes:
