No pics but really good. This place isn't like the typical strip mall joints, it's more of a bar with food but the flavors are authentic (from what I can tell) and better balanced than other Korean restaurants.
Had the Dove version of chocolate/peanut butter combo.
They put Reese to shame.
I have been in Seoul for the past month and just today ate Korean food for the first time since landing. lol. I have lived here for years before and just never been able to stomach the Korean food when I am here, and then of course I miss it when I'm gone. Part of the problem is, and this doesn't apply to American Korean restaurants - most of the good stuff is supposed to be eaten with somebody else communally, like the various KBBQ's and hot pots of soups, and of course, one hopes that your dining company is good and they usually are, and the meal is enhanced and goes beyond the food. Single serve Korean food gets really boring. I had a craving for a plate of galbi and some rice tonight, and a big wad of decent kimchi, takeout in a box. Alas, that's not how they serve it over here.
