Since the Korean soup place at the Fairfax Lotte Plaza closed, we have been given this in return. It actually has a wider selection of soups and is a very clear first in the Korean soup category. The selection includes soups with dumplings, beef bones, kimchee, clams, fish roe and vegetables, beef ribs and radish, and the North Korean cold buckwheat noodle soups, among quite a few others. There is also bibim-bap, bul-gogi, and the sleeper dish of kimchee fried rice, simple but very effective. This isn’t quite an all-purpose Korean restaurant, but if you like Korean food at all it should definitely be in your repertoire.
