We went to Sole Cafe last night, and it was a remarkable experience! Note to fellow Chowhounds, I grew up with a best friend who's mother was Korean, and introduced me at a young age to home style Korean cooking.
At Sole last night It literally felt like i was sitting in her kitchen 25 years ago...
The food was simply amazing, hands down the best I have seen in the Twin Cities. Kimberly Firnstahl, the owner, and one other lady are the only staff in the restaurant. The Jeyuk Bokum was perfectly spiced and cooked. Everything she makes is truly home style, and prepared from scratch. Her bahn-chan dishes were also the best and freshest I have tasted.
Kimberly came out to the table multiple times to ensure that everything was proper and to our liking.
It really felt more like being at someones home who cared for you, than at a restaurant.
If you really want to experience true home style Korean food, you owe it your self to check out Sole.
Also, Kimberly utilizes no MSG, none.
