No reports on this place except for takeout?

I went to a prix-fixe dinner organized by Tasting Table the other night. The room (corner of 18th and Dolores, next to Bi-Rite Creamery) is much nicer than the old space.

Oysters with ponzu and gochujang (spicy miso) were fantastic. That's on the regular menu, 6 for $16. The housemade gochujang was the best I've had.

Stone pot rice with vegetables and egg was great. That's also on the regular menu, $16.

Main course was barbecued pork belly, chicken, and black cod with lettuce, nappa wraps, ssamjang, assorted vegetables such as perilla leaf and jalapeños, and cabbage kimchi. The pork belly with jang and nappa wraps was the best Korean BBQ I've had. The chicken and fish were fine but paled by comparison. The pork belly's not on the regular menu but I think they have it occasionally as a special.

Dessert was a kabocha custard with whipped cream and toasted pine nuts, barely sweet, kind of bland but the nuts made the dish.
