It's on 29th St. and 6th Ave.

This place drew me in with the Korean lettering on the awnings. I thought it might be good for some stuffed buns of various deliciousness. Turns out the pastry is average stuff. A couple of red bean buns and some other Korean donuts and things. What's odd though is there are three mexican women hidden behind a counter doing Mexican home cooking. There is no menu and when I asked the Korean couple running the place what they had to offer they just said chicken, rice, and salad plates and I'd have to know the spanish food names. What I got for five dollars was a large steaming plate of chicken, green salad and a rice with peas and carrots. Very generous and filling yet boring. The line of local Mexican workers coming in and leaving with huge sacks of food while I was there hints at other possiblities.

Has anyone been here and tried to order other things. They're kind of vague about the whole process but the business card lists Tacos, Milenesa, Ranchers, Suaves?
