What a surprising location for a Korean/Sushi restaurant, and we were pleasantly surprised. Tucked behind popeyes and a gas station, you would’ve never guessed that a mom/pop Korean restaurant would be located there.
We came here for dinner and here’s what we tried
1. Spicy seafood noodles (naeng myun) *supposed to come with free sake – Refreshing and spicy chewy cold noodles. Just what we needed for a hot summer night. We were slightly disappointed that we didn’t get our free sake, but at the same time, we didn’t bother asking, again.
2. Bulgogi box – Unique set up in a Japanese Bento box. It had macaroni salad, salad, california roll and white rice to accompany the bulgogi on the side on a sizzling platter. The bulgogi was pretty tasty and I did not mind the extra peppery taste at all.
3. Deep fried soft shell crab – crunchy and tasty with a drizzle of Japanese mayo?
4. Pan chan – actually kind of disappointed with the quality of pan chan. The pickled radish was too soy-sauced and tangy. The onion/omelette triangles were bland. The so-called kimchi was just iceberg lettuce tossed in korean chili paste (kochujang).
Conclusion: It’s a very cute hole-in-the wall for quick Korean food without having to go all the way to Chinatown. The down side is that there are no ji gaes and the pan chan is mediocre at best. 3/5 beeps
