In SN&R I read about two Korean restaurants, Korea House and Willow Trea, near each other on Folsom Blvd. between Watt and Bradshaw. Today I drove by both to decide which one to have lunch in. To my surprise, I found a bajillion Korean places on that stretch, spilling over to Bradshaw towards Hwy 50. I ended up lunching at Yisurock, ordering their $4.99 lunch special, a bowl of thin rice dumplings in a stellar broth, served with small plates of kim-chee. This looks to be really good for dinner and drinking, with an enormous karaoke setup for such a small room. Seems very authentic -- all the wall signs in Korean only, and the menu was mostly Korean.
So now I am curious about the area. Which restaurants are the best on that stretch?
Also, along the stretch, a Hong Kong style Chinese place called Daimo looked very good. Has anyone eaten there?
