Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 September 2015

Grand opening... 12% discount!!! Very hip decoration, cartoon drawing on the wall. Lots of young generation coming here. The price is very reasonable and affordable. This place is consider Korean fast food restaurant. Not the typical Korean BBQ place.

The Service: Okay. Came to take the order, served the food & gave us the check. They put a jar of water on each table; therefore, server didn't have to come to our table to refill our water and checked on us.

The Food:

Spicy Pork Ramen: Korean ramen noodle is just like their instant/cup noodle. I like the texture of the noodle, a little bit chewy and tougher. Korean ramen broth can be spicy~ Perfect for cold raining day!!

Kimchi Fried Rice: LOVE this dish. They stir-fried the rice with kimchi, ham, dry seaweed and other spices. The bonus - sunny side-up egg on top of the fried rice!!! I like the texture of the rice, sticky & a little bit hard.

The Parking: Plaza parking lot (free)

Finally a Korean restaurant around San Gabriel that's not KBBQ or Tofu house. This cute and clean restaurant have actual kfood, like jajangmyeon, ramen, stew, rolls and various other rice dishes. They give you 4 different side dishes - bean sprouts, seaweed, kimchi, and cucumbers. The kimchi fried rice is good with ham, kimchi and top with fried egg. They jajangmyeon noodle is chewy and sauce is tasty. The portions are huge and lunch under $20. If you dont want to drive to Ktown, this is a great choice. Free parking in plaza.
