Ddukbokki (although they use a different spelling).  We wished this was as good as the one at Chon Ju Jip. 😦

At first we thought the thing on the left was soup, but it’s actually a white kimchi (or something like that).  I (Jenne) ate about 95% of those yellow pickles.

Kimchi was fine.

Nick’s ramen had instant noodles but it was very tasty.

We all loved these dumplings, which seemed homemade!

Server recommendation #2, kimbap with fish cake.  We were all surprised how much we liked the kimbap!  However, no one was surprised how much Miko liked the fish cake.

Number in our party: 4 (with Laura and Nick as guest judges)
Final check amount: $37.20
Price per person: $9.25


  • The tteokbokgi is really spicy, and it’s still not as flavorful as other versions we’ve had.  Chon Ju Jip’s is better!
  • The noodle soup dishes are quite delicious.  The broth is yummy!  (I REALLY like the clam noodle soup.)
  • We greatly appreciate the homemade dumplings.
  • The kimbap is unexpectedly delicious and satisfying, although the fish cakes are a little too fishy.
