With its overhead backlit menus and unpretentious furnishings, this late-night joint looks like a cross between a fast-food stand and a Chinese noodle shop. Posters and framed photos of Korean boy bands decorate the walls, and nonstop K-Pop plays in the background.
The unusual specialty of the house is Korean futomaki - fat sushi rolls filled with vegetables, bulgogi, cheese, kimchee, glutinous black rice - some ten variations in all, including a sampler set if you can't decide.
Rounding out the menu are plenty of Korean standards (and a few not-so-standards) - nice garlicky gyoza dumplings, chijimi pancakes, bibimba and other rice dishes, chige stews, a page of noodle dishes - with makkoli, soju and beer to drink. Prices are cheap, and everything on the menu is ready to take out.
