since I reviewed el burrito and this restaurant is right next door and I eat here (much more often than I want to), this is my take on chodang Korean restaurant.
apparently they've been here for at least 3 yrs, someone mentioned it in a post from 2010 but did not eat there. I still remember when I <3 country café and blockbuster were here, but times are a changing.
this is from my post on yelp:
cheap meat jun that tastes like cheap meat jun. that's what they're known for. under $5 for nice portion, but i'd rather have tastier meat jun.
everything else is meh and expensive for what it is.
i'd rather have yummy's (which should tell you a lot, not that yummies is bad, but it's fast food).
parking is horrible unless you park in the mall parking lot.
go on over to keeamouku st for some tasty Korean food. if you need a place to eat late at night, go to million or sorabol, they're much better.
unfortunately this has become my parents' go-to Korean place because they are suckers for the meat jun 'deal.' they don't even like the meat jun, or even necessarily order it, but mentally they are getting a good deal.
I admit their fish jun is good, and so is the milky white beef bone soup (I made this once myself at home and it is so much better just to order out for this dish, it takes hours and hours of boiling), but there are so many other places with better meat jun and better food in particular.
i'm all about www.maangchi.com.
