Restaurant details
Reviewed 27 December 2014

This unassuming place with only KOREAN LETTERING on the outside looks like some kind of bazaar not a restaurant. A friend lives across the street , has been there for a year and never went in. He loves to go some other place do not want to remember the name I hated the food. So I said look lets go in here it's across the street. We went in. Full of KOREANS..the waitress even spoke to me in KOREAN. The atmosphere is otherwordly. You feel like you have stepped outside of the USA. THE FOOD was great not one complaint. It was fast hot / spicy and the SOJU was flowing. I definitely recommend it. Their specialty is the BONE SOUP but everything else on the menu is solid.

From the outside, I normally wouldn't go in but I'm glad I did.
It's traditional Korean food I don't know that much about.
Food was delicious and I even went back the next day.

I've been here with my korean friends and i had a good lunch. I liked the fish soup with octopus most, but the soup with the pork was good too.

I went there once for a breakfast. As I did not have previous experience with korean cousine I ask for the recommendation. I got the beef blood (!) soup, it was not a kind of the breakfast which I would expect but it was pretty OK. The staff was very nice and I enjoyed it.
