Long established spot in k-town, specializing in tofu dishes. Tofu was incredibly moist and fresh. Seafood stew was rich with flavor. Excellent japche. Also very good banchan.

I liked the fact that this place had something for everyone: traditional Korean food, supplemented by a little Thai, Chinese, and Vietnamese pho. The two dishes we ordered (pho and sesame chicken) were pretty good.

Picked this restaurant for its proximity to Penn Station and reviews for a quick dinner before catching our train on our last day in the city. It did not disappoint. Some of the best Korean food we've had outside Korea.
