Korean Menu terms

I had an odd experience at a local Korean restaurant
yesterday. Previously the food was quite good. This
time it was not nealy spicy enough for my taste. The
dish I ordered was listed as hot and spicy (tripe and
beef intestine), but it wasn't. Nor were those little
side dishes that should have been (two sorts of kim

There is a portion of the menu that is not translated,
and I suspect that might contain the spicier dishes,
the restaurant having tamed the other dishes for the
American taste. The dishes are listed in Korean and in
translitereated Korean.

Does anyone know of a site where I can find
translations of Korean menu terms.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
