Three of us had a good lunch here today. We followed Tom's review, as we're all lovers of pork bellies, octopi and noodles and thought they would be a good start for a small group. The hostess seated us off to the side by ourselves, and was dubious about our ordering plans, but very helpful with the food. The service was fast. I think it was pretty authentic; in any case, it was plenty hot! We were the only non-Koreans there.

The pork belly was delicious, cooked on the table, nice and crisy by the end. I didn't think the raw garlic added much to the lettuce bundle, but it could impress co-workers this afternoon. The octopi was tender enough, but didn't have that much octopus taste for the most part. Sauce was good, very hot. I liked the noodles best. Cold, with lots of sesame and chili, mixed with egg and cucumber. Not too chewy, despite the name. Panchan were varied and generous (my favorite was the bubbling, quivering, shaking egg), tea was lame, dessert soup a nice touch. Total was about $15 each.
