check out the cafe/restaurant inside Kukje Korean Market, located at 2350 Junipero Serra Blvd in Daly City, phone # is 650-994-3300.

there are two restaurants inside, one is called tofu house, and the other is called seoul U & I snacks

tofu house has typical korean food which is quick, cheap and good, you can find the usuals like bibimbop and korean bbq beef, soft tofu stew. the soft tofu stew is $8.08 and is ok and the kalbi is yummy and only $11.78 but it's LA style kalbi. There's also a japanese menu which includes sushi, teriyaki and tempura. it also has korean favorites like: "sashimi salad" (called "hwe dup bop" in korean), it is sashimi slices over rice, with lettuce, assorted veggies and you eat it with korean hot sauce, and beef kimbop which is korean sushi which has beef and assorted veggies. i believe you can also order "off menu" items like ja jang mien (noodles with black bean sauce - korean-chinese style), however, they only give you 4 pan chan when you order, they are kimchee, seasoned cucumbers, bean sprouts and seaweed salad. if you order at the counter, you can also see some pre-packaged korean spicy chicken (kam poong gi) which is excellent

the other snack place, which is my real favorite, seoul U&I snacks has more korean-style bar food such as korean style roast chicken, korean spicy fried chicken, hand-made korean style dumplings, green onion seafood pancakes, mung bean pancakes, ricecakes with hot sauce, fish cake with soup, all of which are really good, the most expensive item is $7.99 (thats the chicken), they also have sweets like korean candied yams, roasted yams, & baked goods. i think on weekends, he sets up a stand outside of the store and sells made to order fried red bean cakes and roasted yams - just like it is in korea!

not only that, after you eat you can shop for korean groceries as they have a large selection of pan chan and the like
