Yu Chun

Stan | Aug 12, 200407:26 PM

I went to Yu Chun (6th and Alexandria in Koreatown). It is a pleasantly spacious place whose menu is mostly kim chee, noodles, and tofu, though they have some Thai fusion dishes that don't sound that interesting. I found the food to be good but not great. I got the dol sot bibimbap. There were five panchan (a crunchy vegetable, kim chee, sprouts, sprout soup, and seaweed). All were good not great, with the seaweed probably being the best. The bibimbap was unambitious but basically fine. Actually the best part was the stone bowl, which kept the food hot. For a bibimbap and a 7-Up I got out of there for $14, which seemed a little expensive.

In the same mini-mall is an interesting rice cake shop that sells squares of sweetened rice cake in various colors and (I assume) flavors. I got one that was embedded with various nuts and things. It was thin and sticky enough that it was a challenge to eat, but I thought it was good. I haven't seen the same items anywhere else in town.
