After our dinner at Take 31, Tina and I went to Osamil for a drink to round off the evening in style. Osamil is a Korean Gastropub known for modern Korean food and good cocktails. When we were there, everybody seemed to be ordering the Korean Market Chicken, which is a whole fried chicken served with different condiments, and it looked delicious. I regretted a little that we didn’t go to Osamil for dinner instead of Take 31. Not that Take 31 wasn’t nice, but I liked the vibe at Osamil better. Take 31 was great for casual food and makgeolli, but Osamil would probably have been a better choice fora girls’ night out with dinner and cocktails.
I wish we had had some appetite left, so we at least could have tried one of the small plates, but we couldn’t squeeze down a single bite more, so we just had cocktails in the bar. I had the NA-Bee which is a butterfly pea-infused tequila-based drink with a touch of coconut liquor, pineapple, Grand Marnier and egg white. Very pretty and delicious. Felt like I had ordered the most beautiful drink on the menu.
Tina went off-menu and tried her luck with a spicy margarita. The drink wasn’t really a hit, but she was warned in advance that they didn’t have any jalapeños so she only had herself to blame. She ordered another pink drink (I forgot the name of that one) later, and it was nice and fruity.
Osamil also has a speakeasy, Osamil Upstairs, located one stair up from the restaurant. The cocktails and the ambiance are supposed to be really good, so it’s on my list for the next time.
