Ate here with friends a few months ago. Tried the fermented vegetables. Tasted good however major tummy distress an hour or so later. In all fairness, not sure if this was my body's reaction to the food or if MSG was used?!

1st time to a Korean restaurant and it won’t be my last. I am hooked. Sweet and savory Bul Go Gi, spicy kimchi, and the fried dumplings are all addictive. They have a $10 lunchbox special that has enough food to feed a small army.
