“Hidden” Korean Restaurants in Calgary: Part II

In addition to the previous post,Hidden” Korean Restaurants in Calgary, here are two more Korean Restaurants to check out in Calgary!

Ssome Pocha

1111 6 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2P 5M5


Interior (During Halloween)

Ssome Pocha is located on 6th avenue, and this place is great for late nights for alcoholic drinks and food with some friends. Ssome Pocha is open till 3 am on Fridays and Saturdays and weekdays till 1 or 2 am. The atmosphere on late night weekends is bustling, with dim lights and segregated wooden booths which can be similar to the nightlife seen in Korean pubs. They serve a variety of dishes such as deep fried chicken, jigae (stew), BBQ, udon, bokkeum (stir-fried dishes) and more.



Here are some of the dishes I tried at Ssome Pocha!


Seasoned Fried Chicken


Cheese tteokbokki (spicy rice cake with cheese) and Corn cheese

Sso Yummy

117, 128 2 Ave SE, Calgary, AB
