Zoomak, our Korean Restaurant of the Year.


Zoomak truly opened in the worst of times (October 2020), but in two short, chaoticyears they have found an honoured spot in our judges’ hearts—and stomachs. The modern Korean tavern clinches gold in this category, not just for fantastic food and an unbeatably priced lunch special ($20 for a 12-part tasting tray) but also for the ambiance: the stocked-up bar and subway-tiled interior is casual and classic.


Hot on Zoomak’s heels is Maru, the Lower Lonsdale bistro known for sizzling stone bowls and gochujang-glazed Korean fried chicken.


Securing bronze is Insadong, well worth the journey to Coquitlam for BBQ-your-own marinated sliced beef, short ribs and pork jowl. Restaurant Awards vet Hanwoori earns the honourable mention.
