  • The tofu was flavorful, delicious, and comforting.  Recommended!
  • The server was nice — it felt like a friend’s mom was cooking me dinner.
  • The tea tasted like pancake syrup, only not sweet.  But in a good way.
  • Free kimchi to start.
  • Good rice.
  • Spicy dishes were on the milder side — they weren’t overpowering.
  • The fortune cookies were very good.  They were made of thicker wafers and came unwrapped on a plate.  And the paper slips inside were actually fortunes, not lame-o proverbs or advice.
