DaMoim, web site, 7106 Columbia Pike, Annandale, VA, 703-354-3211 (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [Don Rockwell | Yelp]

Call me impressed. They call it Korean fusion. Get the Ssam with spicy pork and also get the kimchee enchilada (really). Get appetizer #5, the short ribs. That’s a great meal right there for very low cost. Focus on the small dishes. Some of the entrees are too sweet for my personal taste (compared to “Korean classic” at least) but they are well done and many people will like them a lot. The accompanying vegetables are above average. This place tries to be cool, by invoking odd mixes of the Beatles and the 1960s and by playing intermittent classic rock.

I expect to go back a lot. It’s original, reasonably priced, and lots of fun, with no real downside.

    My fiance and I went a few months ago. Sadly, that was after a trip to LA and requisite pilgrimage to the infamous Kogi. Da Moim makes some noted efforts to create the Mexican-Korean fusion found at Kogi, but they were something easily reproduced at home. I want to think we could have ordered better, and perhaps we’ll try the ssam next time, but it might be a long while before we return.
