Server’s recommendations: Beef bulgogi, kalbi short ribs, spicy seafood dduk bae gi (spicy seafood soup with tofu), boo dae jji gae (lots of ham, ramen, sausage, veggie stew)
What we ordered: Boo dae jji gae, corn cheese
Number in our party: 2
Final check amount: $18.48
Price per person: $9.24


  • Panchan is served at the beginning.  Delicious cucumber pickles.
  • Good sticky rice.
  • The stew included more than it said — there were also rice cakes and tofu.
  • One soup is enough for two.
  • The corn cheese is greasy and delicious, but easy enough to recreate at home.  We suspect that it’s nothing but corn, mayonnaise, sugar, and a ton of melted cheese, baked in an oven.
  • The Korean pop music is really loud and terrible (in Miko’s opinion) / terribly awesome (in Jenne’s opinion).
